I bought the Dora stool to begin training my daughter to use the 'big' potty. Although at first it's scary, but eventually will feel more comfortable when getting down on their own. It's simple and easy to move from the toilet to the sink to wash hands. The best part it is easy to clean. One Lysol wipe and it's clean!! I do suggest toddlers be potty trained on the training potty first before using the toilet.
My 2 yr. old Izabella, loves her Dora stool. She says, "she a big girl" when she washes her hands and tries to potty..She shows her 1 yr. old sister how to use it..I love those moments of independence...It's sturdy and easy to carry around...
