The Cool Gear Travel Potty is a great buy for parents who like to get out and about with a potty training child. Actually, that's limiting it's use. It's a great potty for parents with young children, potty training, potty trained, still in diapers, etc.
This travel potty uses gallon-size zipper storage bags (Ziploc bags) that you place inside the potty seat. Your child uses the potty and then you can zip the bag shut and dispose of the waste. The blue/green sides are actually storage areas to keep wipes and extra zipper bags (and plastic grocery bags if you want to be a bit more discreet). The green/blue sides fold down and slide across the white seat area to make the potty a compact package that you can store just about anywhere. It even slides into the basket of a stroller, trust me, I know! It is entirely plastic and easy to clean. My only complaint about it, if I have to name one, is that the carry handle on ours came off. It's not a big deal because we never really carried it by the handle anyway, but it is something to mention, I suppose.
We keep our Cool Gear Potty in our van all the time. I can't tell you how many times we have been out at a park somewhere when the preschooler calls, "Mom! I have to pee! NOW!" only to find either the park has no bathrooms or the bathrooms are locked. (Or worse yet, there is a bathroom but it is so foul that even I would risk getting poison ivy on my bum to avoid using it. Seriously. What is it about porta-potties that people can't seem to get their pee into the hole? I mean, if everyone used it like it was a regular potty, it wouldn't get disgusting and we wouldn't desire to not touch our butts to the seat. Gross.) So we bring out the go-go potty and all is right with the world again.
I can't say, although I've really considered it for myself a couple of times, how this potty would stand up to a heavier person trying to use it, but it works for our 40 pound five year old!
If you're looking for a good travel potty, this is it. I don't think you'll be disappointed!
