There are a variety of potty chairs available these days. Here are some picks to help you decide which chair is best based on you and your child's needs and preferences.
Let's just start with the basics. This wooden model is probably the same "Old School" version where many of today's parents learned to tinkle and poo. It has a removable bowl and... well — that's about it. Two side pockets update it a bit and can hold books, toilet paper or small toys. It looks like a chair, so it's great for children who might have a fear of sitting on the big porcelain toilet.
If you or your child are the MacGyver types, then you'll want a chair with some versatility. This potty can be used on its own, but then the lid can be removed and placed on the big toilet when your child is ready. After it has run its course for potty training, it can be used as a step stool. It comes with a training guide, but come on now — MacGyver didn't needed no stinkin' training guide, right?
The Boon Potty Bench is the perfect combination of utility and aesthetics. It's white and bright green with a low profile. It's equipped with a soft removable shield for boys and has two compartments that store wipes, toilet paper, books and anything else your child might need during potty time. it has non-slip grips on the bottom and can be used as a bench (for parents during bath time for example) or a step stool for kids.
