The modestly priced Primo Folding Potty Seat with Handles may be the most portable potty-training solution. The potty seat folds so compactly that parents can tote it in a standard diaper bag. Reviewers say the hard plastic is easy to clean, and parents like the handles, which help their kids feel more secure. However, many parents say the seat can be hard to stabilize on some toilets, and others say the hinges led to pinched bottoms.
May pinch little bottoms. Reviewers say the hard plastic Primo Folding Seat Potty with Handles is easy to keep clean on the road using anti-bacterial wipes. The seat sits atop adult toilets and cannot be used as a standalone potty. It sits more forward on toilets than other models, which some parents of boys say means their kids don't have enough room to comfortably use the seat. There is no splashguard. Though the hinges are advertised as anti-pinch, several reviewers still say the seat pinched their kids where it folds up.
Easy to tote. The Primo Folding Potty Seat with Handles folds flat and can easily fit in a diaper bag or stroller, parents say. While most say the handles help their children feel more stable while using the seat, several reviewers report problems stabilizing it. Despite rubber gripping pads, some say it slips and wobbles, while others say it easily bows under heavier children. Still other reviewers attribute these problems to user error, however. The seat is available only in white.
Review Credibility: Very Good Michelle Horton names the Primo Folding Potty with Handles the best for travel, saying its small size makes it the ultimate portable solution that can actually fit in a diaper bag or stroller basket. The seat has worked well in several public restrooms, she says. She notes that kids do need to learn to sit further forward on the seat than with other models.
