Boy Potty Training Doll - Potty Scotty
Boy Potty Training Doll - Potty ScottyCode: mi-scotty-00000
Potty training dolls are a great potty training tool because they allow your toddler to potty train the doll. By teaching the doll how to go potty, your toddler is learning the correct behavior for when he goes potty! Potty Scotty, potty training doll, can go potty in any potty chair, toilet or potty seat.
The Potty Scotty Doll was designed for the Potty Training in One Day method, but is a great tool potty training in general and is the perfect doll for boys!
The Potty Scotty Doll includes the following items:
1) Potty Scotty Drink-and-Wet Doll:
He is an anatomically correct drink and wet-on-demand doll. He can drink water and hold it until you want him to go pee. He can pee standing up or sitting down.
He is 16" tall and is dressed in a 2 piece outfit, so that the pants can be removed when potty training. He is also wearing a diaper underneath his clothes.
He conforms to the safety requirements of ASTM F963.
2) Bottles for Potty Scotty to be able to drink water.
3) Three Doll Training Pants
(These underwear are like the child's potty training pants .) Potty Scotty will change into this Big Kid underwear, along with your child on the day of the training which I like to call the Big Day. The additional underwear is to change the doll when he has an accident on the Big Day.
PLEASE NOTE: We do not include a potty chair for the doll for a couple of reasons. Since the doll is used to model the "going potty" behavior for your boy, Scotty should use the same potty that your child will use AND Scotty can potty anywhere - in a potty or in the toilet!

I gave Scotty four stars because he does indeed leak. However, if you feed him slowly like the directions indicate, he works well. To minimize leaking, you have got to follow the directions, which are very simple. My son loves this little guy. I did the one-day potty training method with our 37-month-old five days ago, and he has only had four pee accidents starting the day after training, two of which were waking up with wet training pants. I just wish Scotty could poop because that is our challenge now! Oh--and it is neat that Scotty comes with a diaper on because you can start the training showing your little guy that you are taking off the diaper and never putting it back on, just like you will do with your little boy once training starts!
My eight year old son is on the autism spectrum. We have been trying to potty train him for years with no success. He is nonverbal, and while we were trying to use pictures and books to give him visual prompts, nothing seemed to "click"--he just wasn't understanding what we wanted him to do when he was sitting on the toilet.
His ABA therapist recommended Potty Scotty, and I figured, why not give it a try? I ordered the doll and received it in less than a week; one week after that, my son was successfully using the toilet. Seeing the doll was the "a-ha" moment he needed, and for almost a month, he has been doing wonderfully, even during school.
I know many other parents of children on the spectrum deal with a lot of frustration when it comes to potty training, and I wanted to let you know your site should mention the doll's usefulness for those who need visual prompting. I actually read a review by a parent who had complained the doll was "too lifelike," and that's actually why I ordered it!
Thank you for creating this great product,
I trained my son using this method when he was 2 years, 2 months. (My mom used a similar method with me in 1977 and recommended it) It worked really really well! He took a bit longer to learn to go poopoo at first, until I realized that HE thought he was "making messies" if he went in the toilet. I solved this by taking him around the house and showing him that the dishes go in the cupboard, clothes in the closet, toys in the toy box and poopoo in the toilet. He totally got it after that. He only had a couple accidents that I recall. I reminded him to go pee pee quite a lot at first, which I believed helped. I stopped all liquid drinking an hour to and hour 1/2 before bedtime and had him pee right before bed and right after getting up. I would highly recommend this prodect to everyone who's ready to potty train. :)
I was excited about this product, having a toilet-resistant three-year-old. I was also excited to have an anatomically correct male doll. I think, however, because he is three (on the older side of potty training age) and a somewhat intelligent child, he immediately figured out how to make the doll go potty (literally within 5 seconds), and just became fascinated by the cause and effect of squeezing the dolls leg. He could not have cared less that we praised the doll for going potty. He just wanted to make it go potty again. Aside from that, the doll does leak, as mentioned by previous reviewers. I think this could be a useful tool for a younger toddler (18-24 month old) who is ready for potty training, but if your child is older and therefore more aware of making things function on their own (and also a headstrong child), it is not so great.
We just used this method to teach our son (2yrs, 8 mos) to use the potty. We love this product/method and highly recommend it! The book gave us some very helpful information about how to tell when your child is ready with social, emotional, physical and cognitive indicators. The author also explains the child development principles for why this method works. The 1 Day Method builds on the concepts that we learn best by example, that we learn when we "teach" others and that potty training principles naturally work with rewards and consequences. With this method, our son learned how to use the potty in one weekend. He feels very proud of himself and we are ecstatic, too! This is a fantastic product/method....truly a must-have for every parent!
My son has never taken any interest in dolls, so I wasn't sure he would buy into it. But he loved it. It's been a week since his party and he's completely potty trained, and still plays with the doll. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because if you put the legs in the sitting position and then squeeze one leg it is supposed to "pee". However, my doll will start to leak in the sitting position without squeezing the leg. And it's kind of difficult to "feed", I was never sure how much was enough.

Potty Scotty is a bit messy, hard to empty, and difficult to dress and undress. But my son really wanted him, so we counted down the days until a "big day," and got potty Scotty as a gift that day to jumpstart potty training. It went perfectly, with pretty much instant success, after months of resistance before then. I'm sure different techniques work for different kids, and proper timing is a big factor, but Potty Scotty definitely made our potty training process easier. Says my 3 year old: "we like it a lot because we like the clothes and the bottles."
