It seems like only yesterday I was bringing home my tiny new born baby. Cliche I know but the time really does fly. Now at nearly nineteen months were on the fast track to the terrible twos. Wave farewell to the wonder weeks as we come face to face with a brand new set of challenges. This time it’s all about tantrums, tears and the arrival of everyone’s favourite milestone, potty training!
It’s a stage I’ve been secretly dreading (which I suspect isn’t uncommon) mainly because I have literally no idea where to even begin! So when the lovely folks over at Fisher-Price got in touch to see if we’d like to try out the latest toilet training must have, I practically snatched it from their hands.
Toilet Train Bing is a fun way to help guide children through their potty training experience. Bing incorporates interactive learning with fun and games by letting your child know when it’s time to use the potty. During play, Bing will call out – it’s time to stop the game for the toilet train.
Once Bing is sitting on his very own potty you’ll hear him tinkle, if he’s feeling especially happy he’ll even hum you a little tune. When Bing’s finished, take him off the potty and listen out for him pulling the flush. If Bing doesn’t make it to the potty in time an illuminating feature will show you he’s wet himself.
What I really like about Toilet Train Bing is that it’s a unique way to help support your child while also making toilet training fun. Although Rory is a little young to fully benefit from the product (suitable from 2 years+) he took an instant like to Bing. We’ve already begun to encourage Rory to sit on his potty and he was more than happy to help Bing sit on his.
A key feature for me, which I love, is the fact that bing flushes the loo after doing his business. I’m still trying to teach my other half to flush every time. If Bing helps improve the toilet habits of even one man in my house then I’ll be a happy mama!
I know we have a long and testing road ahead when it comes to potty training. I may be completely clueless but it’s something I’m not going to rush. Rory will get there in his own time and with Bing to help us I know we’ll have fun along the way.
Like the look of Bing? Could he be the perfect addition to help your child through a challenging milestone? You’re just in luck. I’m going to give one reader the chance to win their very own Toilet Train Bing!
