Where to Buy
 

Bottom Line

Parents say the Travel Potty by Cool Gear is a lightweight but sturdy workhorse for families on the go. This standalone travel potty is easy to clean and easy for kids to use and carry, they say. But the potty does not have a splashguard for boys, and two integrated storage compartments can be difficult to pry open.

Breaking It Down

Ease Of Use

Uses zipper bags. Reviewers say the Travel Potty by Cool Gear, made of hard plastic, is easy to clean and easy for their kids to use with 1-gallon zipper plastic bags, which can keep messes sealed up on the go. A few parents complain that the seat is small, and some wish for a splashguard that would better contain boys' messes. This standalone potty chair does not turn into a potty seat that can be used on top of adult toilets.

Lifestyle Features

Highly portable. The Travel Potty by Cool Gear folds into a small, briefcase-like package with a handle that is easy for kids to carry, parents say. Reviewers say it feels very stable when open, even for heavy kids, despite being made of lightweight plastic. The potty also features two lockable storage compartments for wipes, extra underwear or other gear, but several reviewers say the compartments can be difficult to open. The potty is available in only one color, a blue and green combo.

She also likes the two storage compartments and says the potty is a good choice for road trips or camping since it is a standalone. However, there is no splashguard for boys. She also discusses the Kalencom 2-in-1 Potette Plus and Fisher-Price On-the-Go Potty, ranking the Cool Gear potty second.
