When we saw this potty chair we instantly thought, “why didn’t I think of that”! The Potty Safe potty chair has a special feature that every parent will appreciate!
To see if our first impression was “spot on” we asked an expert, a parent in the midst of potty training her little girl! We fast forwarded a Potty Safe potty chair to this mom and after a few days of using the Potty Safe potty chair she shared her thoughts with us:
First of all, mom loved the lock feature of potty bowl as her daughter loved to play with the bowl of the chair she had and would put it on her head! (Ugh) Potty Safe kept her daughter from this favorite activity that mom did not care for. Other attributes that this mom noticed, is the “bump” on the front of the chair design, as it defines the bowl better than other potty chairs. She believes the design would be great for boys, keeping pee in the bowl and not on the floor. Mom likes the heights of the Potty Safe Potty Chair as it is taller than the other chair she had and seemed sturdier!
This is awesome feedback from a mom potty training her daughter. This mom works in the medical field. She is highly aware and concerned about germs and cleanliness. Potty Safe provided a better product option in her opinion.
The makers of Potty Safe shared some information to some questions we had. Please enjoy reading the Question/Answer section of our blog:
What was your biggest inspiration for creating Potty Safe?
Our inspiration came when potty training our daughter. She loved being a big helper and try- ing to dump the potty, and she also loved to show off her accomplishments. Since the waste bowls came out so easily, she was able to the get them out in a flash and it usually ended up in a huge mess all over her and the floor. When I searched all over for a “child proof” potty chair that featured a waste bowl that kids couldn’t remove, I was in shock it didn’t exist. So, I went and bought some materials that I thought would get the job done. I told my husband my idea, handed him the materials, and asked him to “fix it”. He is a great fabricator and has patience of steel, so he can figure anything out. And that’s how Potty Safe was born!
What was your biggest challenge for creating Potty Safe?
I would say our biggest challenge for creating Potty Safe was navigating unchartered waters of getting a product to market, and balancing that while holding down full-time jobs. I have my B.S.B.A in Accounting, my husband is a welder, and we live on a farm. So, our backgrounds do not include any knowledge about launching a product to retail. It has been a roller coaster for sure, but a fun adventure! We’ve learned by asking any questions possible and researching all we can. The real work begins after we get the kids down for bed and come together to work on Potty Safe. It’s a lot of work that can be stressful, but something we are very passionate about so it makes it all worthwhile!
How many children have tried your product?
Since we just launched a few months ago, we have about 20 kids using a Potty Safe currently, with the number growing every day.
Are there any other products on the market that are similar to your product?
While there are quite a few potty-training chairs on the market, none of them offer a child proof latch that Potty Safe does.
What makes your product unique to other potty chairs?
Potty Safe is definitely unique because of our latch that secures the waste bowl to the base.
How long have you been selling Potty Safe?
We launched our website on Aug 21, 2018 to start accepting pre-orders. On Oct 26, 2018 we received our first shipment of inventory.
Do you offer your product online or in stores?
Potty Safe is currently offered online at www.PottySafe.com and at a local shop, Forever Yours Embroidery in Cassville, MO that features gifts for all ages also along with personalization services.
Is Potty Safe available in different colors?
Potty Safe is currently offered in a bold neutral yellow, or a Pink fit for a Princess! We look to expand color options as business starts ramping up more.
Do you have reviews for Potty Safe from parents who have used it?
We are getting great reviews from customers.
What is the most important feature of your potty chair?
Our most important feature is the child proof latch. It prevents children from taking out the waste bowl and making a mess. This not only eliminates spills, it also helps to eliminate the spread of germs. And of course, one of my favorite things about Potty Safe is that it saves parents some stress while potty training! Let’s face it, potty training is stressful! Parents have little time in the day as it is, and the last thing they need is to be cleaning up unnecessary spills and giving extra baths.
What is your number one piece of advice for parents starting the potty training process?
Of course, my number one piece of advice is get a Potty Safe! All good fun aside, I would say do not underestimate the amount of time and patience it takes. Every child is different, and they complete potty training at different rates. It is important to not compare your child’s progress with other children. This only creates more stress for your toddler, and yourself.
Anything else you would like to add about your products?
Potty Safe is Made in the USA out of recyclable material. It also features a built-in splash guard, and rubber feet to prevent sliding.
