POTTY TOTS Potty Training Program *Giveaway*

November 17th, 2008 by mamawise

“Potty Training” – those two words can sometimes cause quite a bit of anxiety among parents. I know that I certainly had a lot of apprehension when it came to trying to train my oldest son. Right before my his second birthday, I thought I had a few more months to get myself prepared and ready for the challenge that lay ahead. However, my son had other plans – I knew the time had come since he starting removing his soiled diaper any chance he got. The first few months was tough. I certainly spent a lot of time cleaning my carpets and washing a lot of clothes, all the while searching for answers on how to make this process easier and more enjoyable for the both of us. In hindsight, I can only wish I had the Potty Tots Potty Training Program from the very beginning of our potty training adventure.

The Potty Tots is a unique and amazing potty training tool for toddlers, consisting of a diverse cast of preschool friendly characters that encourage. In the kit, parents will find everything they need for a fun, stress-free potty training experience. Included in the kit are:

  • Potty Training Guide Book – A colorful story book which addresses the challenges of potty training.
  • Illustrated Potty Training Chart – A step-by-step chart which goes over the six essential steps of potty training.
  • Animated DVD – The animated story of the book featuring the Potty Tots characters and fun songs to learn.
  • Progress Game – A positive-reinforcement game which allows your child to track their progress with potty training.

In addition to the kit, parents can access online community resources to help with the potty training process on

Although my son was already day-trained when I received the kit, we were still having issues with nighttime wetting and also with not wanting to poop in the potty. I decided to give Potty Tots a try in order to see if we could work on these two issues. Within, three days my son was waking up dry in the mornings and had his first real poop in the potty. He was still inconsistent with the pooping but by the time two weeks went by, he had successfully pooped four times in the potty without any intervention on my part. I now look forward to using the Potty Tots kit with my youngest son who is a few months away from tackling potty training. I know this is going to make the task so much easier for the both of us.



The Wise Mommy, along with Potty Tots, is happy to host a giveaway for a Potty Tots Training Kit! We will be giving away two kits – one for boys and one for girls!

Take a look at the Potty Tots website and then just leave your thoughts about Potty Tots and whether you would need a boy’s kit or a girl’s kit! The giveaway will run until Nov. 24th 11:59pm EST. Two random winners (one for the boy’s kit and one for the girl’s kit) will be chosen on Nov. 25th and the winners will be notified by email. Good luck everyone!
