Munchkin Arm & Hammer Multi-Stage 3-in-1 Potty, Blue

Munchkin Arm & Hammer Multi-Stage 3-in-1 Potty, Blue

During your child’s potty training journey, you will need a sit down potty as well as a separate potty seat for use on the big-person toilet. This hard-working multitasker combines both. Plus, it integrates the power of Arm & Hammer baking soda for safe and effective odor control. Designed for use at multiple stages of toilet training, the award-winning Multi-Stage 3-in-1 Potty Seat is a triple threat, helping your child pass through each phase with flying colors. For beginners, it acts as a sit-down potty chair with built-in splash guards to prevent splatter and easy-to-grasp side grips for stability. For more advanced learners, the removable top can be placed atop a regular toilet seat. No matter what age or stage, the seat converts to a convenient toddler step stool as well. Potty training as easy as 1-2-3.

Great For Three Year Olds

This potty is larger and more substantial than the four other baby potties scattered between my home and my daughters. When the twins were younger, the Prince Lionheart and Precious Planet Froggy Friend were fine (and still are). But with longer legs now, this higher, more stable potty works better.While the step stool aspect is a smart idea, I don’t want them toting the potty around so we don’t use it as a stool.I also don’t use the baking soda freshener but it’s fine that it includes it.I do like the wipes and find the holster convenient.Even without the baking soda, wipes, and step stool I would have given this potty five stars because it works so well at its main function.This potty is now outside next to the swingset. Because it has a lid that I can keep closed, it doesn’t fill with rainwater between uses and it keeps the seat and bowl clean.

My son likes this potty.

My son really liked this potty when it came. Its a nice size and when the lid is down it can be used as a step stool. Its very sturdy. The bucket is very easy to remove and I line it with cheap 5 gallon garbage bags, so I don’t have to clean it out. It makes clean up so much easier. The wipes dispenser on the side isn’t really accesible. The wipes that come with it are horrible. The seat is still worth it though, even without the wipes. I just purchase flushable toilet wipes from the store and they work great for wiping. Overall I like this seat and my son likes it too.

Not for the easily distracted child

Our son was 18 months when we tried this chair. I loved the concept of it growing with our child. The morning we tried potty training our son was thrilled with it, the only problem is because it had so many parts he thought it was a toy. He did enjoy the step stool and the potty chair worked ok and seem to be more up his alley so we switched to a chair that goes on the toilet.Pros:All-in-oneClean designCons:Not for easily side tracked childrenBest of luck!

great for home and vacations

My three-year-old son is right in the thick of potty training so I jumped on the opportunity to get this potty. Currently we haveFisher-Price Precious Planet Froggy Friend Pottyand we’ve been mostly happy with it, but we live in a two story house and wanted a potty for the upstairs as well as the downstairs.Right out of the box I was enthusiastic because this has so many more bells and whistles. It took some getting used to but my son eventually sat on it and used it. The features I love: The baking soda makes the potty much more pleasant. I really like that it could be a stool. He uses it, then puts down the lid and stands on it to wash his hands. WONDERFUL! Creates space because now, I don’t have to have a stool in the bathroom. Features not so great? The wipes on the side. They’re hard to replace and doesn’t make it that much more convenient. The removable toilet seat hasn’t been used because it doesn’t fit our toilet. Also, the splash guard could be a bit bigger since it doesn’t catch everything.If I just used this at home, I would have given it just 4 stars but recently, we went down to Florida and traveling is where this potty shines! I didn’t have to bring an additional stool, and the fact that the lid closes means it’s easy to pack. It’s also lightweight. We just loved it! My son was able to go at Grandma’s and where ever we happen to be.

Both potty, trainer seat, and step stool in one

With so many products requiring a separate purchase for each item, I really like how this 3 in 1 seat grows with your child. First you have the potty seat, then the transition seat that fits on a regular toilet, and last the whole product used as a step stool. That’s a lot of use out of one item.After looking at the seats available in stores, most don’t cover more than a couple uses and they didn’t feel anywhere near as sturdy. It recommends use at 18+ months and a maximum weight of 120 lbs.The biggest flaw that I see to this is lack of more nonskid surface on the bottom of the device. Kids often move or jump on things quickly and this only has a little rubber on the feet to prevent a skid.I like how the top is a rough surface to be used to step on for the step stool. All parts seem to come in and out easily with the exception of the wipes area. I really don’t see filling that again unless I can find a way to stock it with any wipe available.I’d recommend this product as it’s my favorite of what I’ve seen. Plus the option of the deodorizing discs is a nice touch but not something you have to replace.

Not for younger potty trainers, too distracting

This potty seat is part of my potty training my 18 month old twins. The seat is a good concept; the babies find it comfortable and the design means it can be used as a step stool when the kids are old enough to use the bowl. Aside from this potty, I also own theBABYBJÖRN Potty Chair, Blueas well as the potty in this setBambino Mio Potty Training Kit-SmallThe main drawback I see with the Arm & Hammer 3-in-1 potty seat is that it’s more suitable for older toddlers. It consists of so many parts and they are quite distracting for my younger babies. There are so many detachable items for them to play with that they get easily distracted from the main aim of sitting on the potty.Also the wide rim means that sometimes kids sit and are not properly positioned over the bowl. This leads to a mess being made on the potty rim and on the floor.I think this is a good potty for older toddlers but younger kids would do better with something more basic, with fewer parts and fewer distractions.

Very sturdy!

First of all, I love any product that can be transformed into something else when needed. I love that this offers the option to separate the potty seat and give the toddler the option to use it as a step stool with the toilet. I don’t think anyone really “needs” the wipes or baking soda. Who doesn’t clean out their potty after every use? Who wants to be tied down to one brand of wipes? Four children later, this style potty seat is still my favorite and has given me the most success. […] I find that traditional potty seats are very short lived. Once the novelty wears off, most children opt to be independent and want to “do it themselves”. You know your child best! The Arm & Hammer offers stability, novelty and the option to use separately! Overall, it’s a great one!

Not great for boys

I think this is a great potty. I love the 3 uses. My son is doing well with training on this seat. The problem arises when he goes #1. His stream tends to hit right where the white plastic seat and green plastic bottom meet. There is a seam between the plastics, allowing urine to trickle out and onto the floor. This would be a simple thing for the company to fix, I hope they do for future models.

Nice design

look like a big potty. The urine guard is protective, but no obtrusive. easy to clean. nice that it is also a step stool – although it isn’t very easy to move around. Lid lifts off and can be place on the big toilet, but be aware that this will leave a gap in font and pee could come out in between the potty seat the the regular toilet seat! Aim down.

Really like this!

My daughter is 2 and we bought this a while back when she started to show interested in possibly potty training. We have not pushed the subject so she is just now getting into it more. She really likes this seat and even helps us take it apart and put it back together (simple 1 step) when she has went. I like the simple look of it and the gender neutral colors. The only reason I gave it a 4 out of 5 was because we really dislike chemicals and unnecessary cleaners/scents in our home and that is what this includes. We simply threw them out (or in a cupboard) and are not using the deodorizer part of it nor are we using the wipes. Just not necessary.

Well made potty trainer

This unit has been a big hit with my son so far. He finds it much more inviting than theBABYBJÖRN Smart Potty, Green. We’re just getting into potty training but this unit seems to be quite flexible and should serve us well.

Small bowl and difficult height

I like the shape and lightweightness of this seat. However, my son wasn’t able to climb on top by himself until about 18 months because it is too high (and he is tall for his age). I also dislike that the lid and bowl come off so easily, as he mostly likes to take it apart and drag the pieces around the house. I’ve never used the wipes or wipe holder. The bowl is very small, so, for a boy, even with the splash guard, it’s easier for him to sit and pee out rather than down and into the bowl. And he can’t go #2 on it, as there isn’t enough space without it getting on the back part of the seat. We like the on-toilet lid much better.

Great at first but not wonderful for boys

My son potty trained with this seat at 2 years old. We had this seat for a few months prior to starting to get him used to seeing it around. We have web using the seat for about 6 months now. My son did wonderful with this seat, it is comfortable, it doesn’t look like a you, he stands on it to brush his teeth, it is easy to clean ad empty the potty.However—he is an expert peer these days. He can empty his potty by himself. But when he sits on the potty and he pokes his pee pee down the pee stream shoots right threw the crack of where the seat comes together leaving a puddle on the floor and under te seat. Kind of a bummer.

Great Potty

My daughter loves it, she has been using her potty since 10 months old. Though I have had to take off the lid, because she played with it and smashed her fingers with it. Also, it says it is a 3 in 1, but doesn’t fit all adult toilet seats like ours.

Arm and Hammer meant well…

The 3-in-1 idea is excellent, this little potty looks attractive and like a miniature normal toilet, but we have found this toilet pretty useless honestly.- You have to buy the specific Arm and Hammer wipes that fit in the slot, as well as the specific air freshener for the top inside of the lid, so that’s extra money if you care about keeping up with those features. For starters, you shouldnt need an air freshener on this potty, seeing as it doesn’t flush obviously and you would immediately be cleaning it out after your toddler finishes using it.- This has a lot of parts, something that my two year old son just wants to play with instead of use correctly.- There are grips on the bottom of this thing to prevent it from sliding when your child uses it. (That’s the lime green rubber strip on the bottom front and back.) Everytime my son sat on this, it still scooted back, and we now use it as a stepping stool for him to get onto the big toilet, and it still moves when he is just sitting on the toilet and his toes are scraping it a little.- On the seat, there is a urine guard that comes up a little to keep pee from splashing. My son is an average size two year old, and this seat opening is just not big enough for him. His “junk” sits on top of the urine guard unless we reposition him and show him to move himself around…How we have still managed to get our money from this thing:- NOT buying the air freshener or refill wipes at all.- Giving the seat portion, which pops off for easy cleaning, to my mother-in-law for the time being because it snaps onto a regular toilet seat so they can fit on it for a transition stage to the big potty.- We use this entire toilet for nothing more than stepping stool for my son to get on and off of the potty, which like I said it does slide a little on our tile floor and makes me son go “Whoa! Whoa Mommy!” hah. Or also for him to wash his hands.- I am planning on reselling it once my son doesn’t need the seat adjuster at my In-law’s house anymore.In my opinion, I don’t think these toddler potties are worth the money. Buy the adjusters for your toilets in your home, and a travel seat to throw in your diaper bag. This is an unnecessary baby item, as are so many these days.

Excellently designed product. Now if I can only get my grandson to sit on it BEFORE he poops! I’ll be doing ok

needs some tweaking

This overall concept of this potty is great…the execution, not so great. My biggest criticism would be the step stool aspect of this device. The step stool is a slippery plastic with no rubber or non-slip coating…an accident waiting to happen. The potty itself is a nice design although it is a little cumbersome to have to lift the lid in order to remove the bowl. There is a place for wipes but unfortunately it is an odd-size compartment that would require you to purchase a specific wipe brand. I like the idea of having a 3-in-1 potty/training seat/step stool…it just needs some tweaking to make it more user-friendly.
