Kalencom 2-in-1 Potette Plus

Pros
  • Can be used as potty chair or potty seat
  • Folds compactly for travel
  • Compatible with plastic shopping bags
Cons
  • Locking legs can be tricky
  • Small size may be uncomfortable for bigger kids
  • Lacks splashguard for boys

Bottom Line

Kids who are potty-training still need to go while they're on the go, and parents say the Kalencom 2-in-1 Potette Plus is a versatile, travel-friendly solution. It can be used as a standalone potty chair or as a potty seat on adult toilets, but it still folds compactly. However, some reviewers complain that the potty is too small, and others say directions are unclear on how to stabilize the legs in potty-chair mode.

Ease Of Use

Easy to clean. Reviewers say the hard plastic on the Kalencom 2-in-1 Potette Plus is easy to clean, even with a simple anti-bacterial wipe, while on the go. The potty can be used as either a potty seat on adult toilets or a standalone potty chair with Kalencom's scented liners, but many parents say plastic shopping bags work just as well. However, the potty is small, and some say larger kids just don't seem comfortable on it. Parents of boys dislike the lack of a splashguard for containing messes.

Lifestyle Features

Not the most stable. The Kalencom 2-in-1 Potette Plus folds up compactly for travel. Some reviewers say it's still a bit large to tote in diaper bags, but it's ideal for road trips. Parents are divided on the product's stability as a standalone potty. Many say it collapsed when their children used it, sometimes even resulting in pinched fingers. However, others say that if the legs are properly locked into place, the potty is stable. Several reviewers say the instructions on locking the legs are unclear, contributing to the confusion. The potty is available in blue, green, red and pink.
