Got this for my daughter's 1st birthday and potty training has been a breeze. My daughter can easily lift the lid herself and sit down. The seat has fit every toilet I have tried and snaps on and off easily. The potty is easy to dump and clean and my daughter even enjoys putting it back together, it's that simple, just drops right back in. Every time she goes potty, it will play a little tune for her and she smiles and claps, but if you want to just praise them for sitting on the potty, there is a button that you can easily reach underneath to play a tune, beware you don't let them figure that out or they'll be in there just pushing that button. The step part also has different size circles that help my daughter step up and down. It's easy to clean, easy to use, it's adorable, durable, you can take the seat or whole potty with you and my daughter loves to use it.
