Potty Scotty and Potty Patty Dolls
Before reading Dr. Sears potty training techniques or the One Day Potty Training Method (see Azrin and Foxx) I used a potty doll to potty train. I have used potty dolls to potty train and once the child is ready they have been trained that day.
Once I notice that the toddler has a dry diaper in the morning and after naps and other signs the child is ready to potty train I start putting the the Potty Scotty Doll or Potty Patty Doll on the real toilet and ask if the child wants to try too. And voila, if they say "Yes" and do it they are ready to be toilet trained. In fact, it has taken very little work after a toddler has said "Yes" and successful urinated in the toilet while playing with their potty doll with me.
The Potty Patty Doll and Scotty Doll were designed for the One Day Potty Training Method (see Dr Phil), but is a great tool potty training in general and is also the perfect doll for girls and boys.
The Potty Scotty Kit includes some basic potty training products:
1) Potty Scotty Doll- This Potty Training Boy Doll that is Specially Designed to Potty Train. He is an anatomically correct drink and wet-on-demand doll. He can drink water and hold it until you want him to go pee. He can pee standing up or sitting down.™ He is 16-inches tall and is dressed in a two piece outfit, so that the pants can be removed when potty training. He is also wearing a diaper underneath his clothes. Click here for Operating Instructions for the doll.
2) Two bottles for Potty Scotty. These are specially designed doll bottles to feed the Potty Scotty Doll water, so he can pee.
3) Three "Big Kid" doll underwear This underwear is like the child's potty training underwear. Potty Scotty will change into this "Big Kid" underwear, along with your child on the day of the training which I like to call the "Big Day". The additional underwear is to change the doll when he has an accident on the "Big Day."
4) A Guide for Today's Parent - Potty Training Book
This book walks parents through the entire potty process from determining if their child is ready, to how to handle bowel movement training and bed wetting. It answers common questions such as: At what age should I start potty training? How do I know if my child is ready to be potty trained? What should I do? How should I potty train? What does potty training in one day mean? What about Bowel Movement Training? What should I do if my child resists training? How do I handle night time potty training and bed wetting? and much more. The goal is to help parents prepare for this important developmental milestone and make it a positive and memorable experience for both parent and child.
The Potty Patty Doll includes the following items:
1) Potty Training Girl Doll by Potty Patty Patty is an anatomically correct drink and wet-on-demand doll. She can drink water and hold it until you want her to go pee. She is 16-inches tall and is dressed in a two piece outfit, so that the dress can be removed when potty training. She is also wearing a diaper underneath her clothes. In every box there are the Doll's Operating Instructions.
2) Bottles for Potty Patty
3) Three Doll Training Pants These training pants are like the child's potty training pants. Potty Patty will change into this Big Kid underwear, along with your child on the day of the training which I like to call the Big Day. The additional underwear is to change the doll when she has an accident on the Big Day.
There is no potty chair for the dolls for a couple of reasons. Since the doll is used to model the "going potty" behavior for your girl, Patty should use the same potty chair that your child will use AND Patty can potty anywhere - in a potty or in the toilet!
