Roundup: Potty Chairs

We're knee-deep in potty training around here. Er, that didn't quite come out right, but moving right along...

Part of our strategy involves having potties located conveniently throughout the house. So we got to thinking, if potty chairs are going to loom large on our visual horizon, wouldn't it be great if they looked kind of cool? You know, to distract us from what goes inside them. We've rounded up our favorites below the jump.

Little Colorado Classic Potty Chair ($79.95)
This is probably the same kind of chair your grandparents potty trained with. If you can get past that mental picture, the chair's simple design would look great in a modernist setting.

Baby Björn Potty Chair ($24.99)
This Panton-esque model seems to be the new classic among most parents we know. (A smaller version is available for $9.95.)

Boon Potty Bench ($34.95)
We blogged this sleek-looking model (pictured at the top of this post) a while back. We liked that not only does it have drawers for containing potty-related paraphernalia, it also can act as a bathroom bench when its lid is closed.

Travel Potty by Cool Gear ($24.95)
It's portable, which is fantastic. It comes with its own briefcase-style carrying case, also fantastic. But the best thing about this potty is the fact that it has a magazine holder.

Potty Scotty Musical Chair ($19.95)
In looks, similar to the Bjorn, but the Potty Scotty also provides an additional incentive by playing "Old Macdonald Had a Farm" when its sensor detects moisture in the bowl.

The pickings are slim, and of course, at the end of the day, we'd probably endure whatever garish atrocity it takes to get the job done. Any recommendations?
