We discovered this ingenious 2-in-1 potty recently at this sweet place called the The Warehouse Cafe in Portland OR. This coffee shop/super kid friendly play space/consignment shop is a mom’s dream come true. You can feel comfortable allowing your sweet little angles to just simply be themselves at The Warehouse Cafe. They can run around, ride the various toys, play with blocks and just have fun while you get to chill out and enjoy their happiness while drinking that delicious cup of locally roasted coffee and organic milk. That typical feeling of sheer exhaustion at chasing your kid around for fear they might enjoy themselves a little just doesn’t exist there. And to top it all off, well there are two things, first, when your little one needs to use the loo, he can actually sit on the potty (without falling in) and potty in peace. Thank you for making this world more widely accessible to more than just big people!! ( I will get back to the potty) One other cool thing about The Warehouse Cafe is that they believe in sustainability and reusing materials to make fresh new things – all their tables are made from reclaimed bowling alleys! You just have to check out their site or even better – GO there and support them. They are bad ass, not only working the eco end of things, but the social, food and family end, they got it all folks!
Where is our Walla Walla equivalent? Any one feeling inspired??? I am….!!!
We here at WaterDrop are inspired by places and people like this! And we are captured by great design that shows up in functional places – like the bathroom. We went on a hunt for this potty after experiencing it not only at the Warehouse Cafe but also at Inland Octopus in Walla Walla – another great place that doesn’t want our kids falling in. We found it at HomeDepot amongst a million places online. Well worth the hunt!
We have been using both the extra potty seat and the stand alone kids potty – but no more! We are in love and awe of this “flip” potty!! The design is great, the toddler potty fits into the lid of the potty so it is not sticking you in the back while you are doing your business and it has a strong magnet so it isn’t constantly falling down either. It is made of wood and metal no cheap plastic. It is the perfect size for my little guy’s butt and he will be able to use it for a long time to come.
Now, I wouldn’t mind seeing some fun toilet seat colors – how about the kid’s potty is purple or green – make it pop, give it a little flare and fun! Why do we go for boring old white all the time – come on Potty designers how about a little color therapy in the bathroom! And what about eco materials? Bemis didn’t use FSC certified wood on OUR potty seat – why not Bemis? Get with the program! Streamline your business to help save the planet, how hard is it to source readily accessible recyclable/reusable materials!?
My toddler can not pull the seat down on his own either, how about a little loop or something that he can get his pudgy little fingers around and pull that sucker down so he can really embrace that independence of his.
Overall I am super impressed and excited by this style of toddler potty. Way cleaner, in hygiene and design, than the ones you have to hang on the wall or leave in the tub when not in use.
And don’t forget to check out The Warehouse Cafe in Portland Or. Tell em’ we say hi!
