Reviews - What do customers think about I Want My Potty?
kid-pleaser for potty trainers (and their siblings) Oct 13, 2006
My nearly three year old (mostly potty trained but still having accidents) loves this book, and his six year old brother loves reading it to him. They both think it's hilarious, and we always have to read it at least three times in a row. I guess I can understand others' objections to the book, but I watch my little boy easily identifying with the little potty training princess in her quest to master the potty chair. He clearly enjoys watching her journey through the process. As for the ending, it's so easy to add an, "oh well, that's okay", just as you would if your child had an accident.
Illustrations could frighten a toddler Oct 7, 2004
I should have heeded the review I read describing the little girl standing in the puddle before I bought the book. The illustrations were frankly, a bit scary, and the author missed the opportunity to reassure the child that everyone has accidents, and that it's OK. Instead, the book just ends, showing the sad and confused child in the puddle. hello! I sent the book back straightaway!
Shows HUMILIATION Jul 12, 2004
I bought this book thinking it would be helpful. The princess theme was a good one. But, I am SO GLAD I READ this book BEFORE I gave it to my little one. While it does show the little princess asking for her potty (a good message), it does not show encouragement or making the child feel better after her "accident". It has the poor child standing in a puddle, redfaced, emabrrassed, and with sad eyes. It shows the humiliation a child may feel if it doesn't get to the potty in time. And, may, make her afraid to go without the diaper for fear of not getting there in time. I was appalled. So much that I will not even donate this book or give it away. It is going into the trash.
Is it a cup or a potty? Jun 1, 2000
My 21-month-old daughter seems to like the story and that it is a princess learning to use the potty (since she is too), but the potty doesn't look like a potty. She thinks its a cup. Now she wants to take my coffee up to the potty and use it.
Both my children & I love this book! Feb 11, 2000
The illustrations are nice. There are only a few words on each page, so it is a quick read. The little princess is really trying, but sometimes you just can't make it to the potty in time & that's okay.
