Admit it: you never thought you'd be buying a video with the word potty in the title. But it's been months, and while Junior seems to love his potty, he doesn't actually do anything in it. So you need some inspiration. Wel... more »

My daughter loved this video, there's a book too. She would sit on the potty and read the book to herself (memory, not really reading). She danced around to "the Potty Song" every time we played the video.

"This is an excellent video for kids. It allows you to start potty training education early by holding the attention of younger toddlers, as well as being entertaining to older children. My son loved it, and now I am buying it again for my daughter. A must have. It starts with a cartoon child getting the potty as a present. Then it shows that the child trys to use it many ways, until they learn through a series of accidents and successes how to use the potty.They make sure to stress that accidents will happen, and this is ok. Then the video changes to a catchy tune showing real children dancing to the music and sitting on their potties. It is amazing how quickly they start singing with the video while sitting on their own potty for more than 5 minutes!"
My daughter loves it, but I don't!

"I borrowed this tape from a friend after repeatedly hearing her daughter ask to watch it. My 26-month-old now asks to watch it once or twice a day. She LOVES it. She quotes it all the time (and I'm getting sick of hearing "Was it a milk bowl for the cat?"), loves the babies and the music on it. She also understands what Prudence is doing in the video. Although the kids' portion of the video is short, my daughter thoroughly enjoys it.As for me, I doubt this video is helping my daughter with her potty training. My daughter was already having some potty success before we got the video, and I don't see her more inspired to go potty since. She never mentions the video when she goes potty. Also, the terminology "wee wee," "poo poo," etc. is different than what my daughter and I -- and the rest of our friends -- use, which doesn't help us with consistency. I also wish the video addressed on my daughter's level other issues associated with potty training -- stopping play to go potty, buying "big girl" underpants (you see Prudence in them at the end but there's really no mention of what they are), etc. Covering these topics would be more valuable than the doctor's portion of the video, which covers information that anyone who has already started potty training already knows.In short, I'm glad I didn't pay money for this video. And even though I don't care for it, my daughter loves it and it's for her, not for me, so we will keep watching it...."
Money well spent, time well saved, progress well made.

"The video(s) is/are an animated version of the book(s) by the same title. The animation pleasingly embellishes the book version--takes things one step further in terms of humor and the expressions and actions of the characters. The video also contains catchy songs, scenes with actual toddlers and clever artsy backgrounds, which totally capture my 27 mo. old's attention. She loves this video with a passion and is advanced as a result. So are wee wee."
