My daughter will be 2 in June, and some of the other potties we have tried were too big, she couldn't sit down on them by herself, but that's not the case with this one. the padded seat had a slight tear in a seam when it arrived, but it wasn't big enough to worry about. it really is a great potty. my daughter loves it. It is colorful, and not a pain when it comes to cleaning. I love the lid, we use it as a seat back, just popped it out and flipped it around, that made the potty more comfortable for my little girl. This is the 4th potty we have bought, and it is by far the best choice we have made as far as potty chairs go.
