I’m not going to lie: it was painful.
Sitting through HOURS of toilet training videos is not a fun way to spend a weekend. There’s only so many songs about ‘The Potty’ you can hear before starting to lose your mind. And while there are some training videos that are well-done and get the message across in a fun way, there are some that are just downright disturbing.
Luckily for you, I’ve taken the time to watch and review whatever potty training videos I could get my hands on. I also had my own toddler chime in whenever they were around and interested enough to comment on the video. Funny aside: near the end of day one, my son asked me with concern in his voice if I was having trouble with the potty.
Let me begin by saying this isn’t an exhaustive list. I’m sure if you went to the Library of Congress you could find many more DVD’s full of animated toilet delight. But I’m a parent – and a pretty busy one at that. And this is a hobby for me, so I went down to the library and checked out whatever videos that were available. I also had a couple around the house that are in our employ, so I added them to the mix. I ended up throwing out the worst videos – no need to waste your time with me making fun of a video. As you’ll see, there’s something for everyone available. I’d first see if your library has any of these available to see if the video works for your child before buying them – though all of these videos are under $20 as of the time of this review.
