On the Go Potty A Must for Kids in Tokyo
March 10,2008 — Went to Babies-R-Us here in Tokyo a while back so I could buy some more portable potty bags for the little folding toilet I bought for T. That thing is so cool. I can’t believe I’ve never seen them in American stores. The potty is called the Potette, and it folds flat when not in use for easy storage. When needed, however, the feet fold down and you insert a plastic bag into the seat to serve as the “pot”. The bag has an absorption pad in the bottom of it, which absorbs all of the liquid making it clean and easy to use. Since driving time here in Tokyo can take sooo long, and bathrooms are not always easy to find or easy to gain access to, the Potette allows us to stop anywhere and let our preschooler go potty. It’s a wonderful invention that I think EVERY parent would love to have — because you know how little ones are, when they have to go, they HAVE to go.
Ok, I just found this potty available all over the internet, so maybe it’s a relatively new product that I just had never seen before. Either way, it’s saved us from many disasters.
