The Prince Lionheart WeePOD is a good pick to keep kids comfortable as they learn to use adult toilets, reviewers say. The soft, anti-bacterial plastic provides a plush cushion for little bottoms, and parents like the range of color choices. Some say the splashguard isn't the best for boys, while others note that the seat may discolor after awhile.
Simple adjustments. Reviewers say the Prince Lionheart WeePOD is easy to adjust using a dial on the back of the seat. The soft plastic has an anti-bacterial coating, and parents say it's easy to clean. However, urine can still get caught under the seat. The WeePOD has an integrated splashguard, but some say it's too low to contain boys' messes. The seat is fairly high, according to some owners, so there was a long learning curve before their children could get on and off independently. The seat is reported as easy to remove from the toilet when it's not in use.
A secure seat. The Prince Lionheart WeePOD fits securely on most toilets without wobbling, reviewers say. The plastic is flexible and soft, and parents say it keeps their kids comfy while they sit, sometimes for long periods. The seat is available in five colors. A few owners say the seat can become discolored after extended use.
