Always be prepared for on-the-go potty emergencies with the OXO Tot 2-in-1 go potty. The potty opens quickly and easily so it can be ready in a snap, whether you need a standalone potty to use with disposable bags or a potty seat to use on a grown-up toilet. It makes a brilliant travel potty too. When using the 2-in-1 go potty as a stand-alone potty, the legs lock securely in place at the ideal height for growing tots, and the soft, flexible flaps hold the disposable bags securely in place. Three disposable bags with absorbent pads are included and refills are available.

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Sarah Jayne: This OXO Tot 2-in-1 Go Potty is extremely convenient. It is expensive but it is good quality and comparable to the cost of the average nappy brand. It is so easy to carry, folds up, fits into my bag and it has its own bag too to keep everything contained. The disposable bags are very sturdy. It can be used as a standalone potty with the legs flipped down or as a toilet seat suitable for little bottoms on any normal toilet either at home or out and about.

Sarah: It’s super easy to fold up with push buttons for the release on each side. It has a high front which is really useful in preventing ‘splashes’ from coming over the seat and getting any underwear wet. It is light to carry and the bag and seat are both wipe clean materials which makes it nice and easy to keep hygienic.

Jade: I would recommend this as it did make life easier and with young children, it is always needed. You can use this anywhere and within two clicks it’s ready to be used. Once it has been used, even when you are out and about it is easy to clean with some antibacterial wipes. It is so quick and easy to use with small children.

How did this product make your life easier?

Carly: This OXO Tot 2-in-1 Go Potty is a life saver for parents when you are potty training. It fits easily into our rucksack and comes with a hygienic drawstring bag. It is so easy to whip out and turn into a potty and the absorbent bags you can buy to go with it can be easily tied up for a mess-free urgent potty moment!

Annie: This product is fantastic. It’s lightweight, portable and the disposable bags mean it's easy to use on the go. It fits easily into a changing bag, is suitable for any UK toilet and the easy opening and closing of the product makes it simple and stress-free to use even in emergencies. It’s much more portable and compact than a standard potty.

Tara: The potty is fantastic! It is a brilliant idea and I think it really helped my son to potty train. There’s no worrying about finding a toilet if we have it with us.

Would you choose this product to win?

Laura: I would consider the OXO Tot 2-in-1 Go Potty compared to other travel potties because it is more hygienic when out and about. It has a dual use being both a potty and a toilet. it will last a lot longer as my children grow as they won't always want to use a potty. The grips are great as it means my children feel more secure. Other travel toilet seats do not have these and so don't feel as safe when sitting my child on the toilet.

Hannah: I would choose the OXO Tot 2-in-1 Go Potty over any other on the market because it’s handy, easy to travel with and easy to clean. It makes potty training easy on-the-go and at home. It removes confusion as the seat is always the same and makes my little one feel secure as he is learning something new. The handy size is very appealing.

Laura: This potty is robust, strong and simple in design. We have also used a competitor and the Oxo is much better in build quality. The folding mechanism is much better as it is easier to erect, to use and put away after. It can be used on a toilet as a smaller seat which is perfect.

What changes would you make to this product?

Amy: If I could change one thing about this product it would be the size as I couldn’t imagine you fitting it in a changing bag or handbag. However, changing the size might negatively affect the product. I would also have expected more disposable bags with the product.

Sarah Jayne: Prices of the refill bags can vary. Maybe larger value refill packs and more colour variety or pattern. It can slide about on the toilet seat so I have to lift my little boy on to it and off the toilet so perhaps more grip would be helpful.

Sarah: The refills. We struggled to find them so ended up using it as a toddler seat on adult toilets. This was great from a transitioning perspective but meant we ended up transitioning sooner than we would have if we had been able to find the refills more easily. Can’t fault the overall design of the product though as we found it excellent in comparison to others.
