    Picked up a pack in Sainsbury's last week.
    Reduced to 10p :D
    It was a manual reduction (yellow reduced barcode label) so won't be national but you may find other stores are delisting this product and have reduced them.

    Don't have toddlers but the cat loves chasing them round the house.:D
    Smile and be happy, things can usually get worse!

    I've seen these in Sainsburys too and don't see the point in them. My 2.5 yr has no problem peeing standing up either in the toilet or potty.
    Is it one of those many baby/toddler products they've designed that we just don't really need?

    in my experience of kids and toilet training, the main problems are:

    -persuading them not do put hands, toys, car keys, etc down the toilet
    -encouraging them not to !!!! on the carpet

    can't really see how this product would help in either respect TBH

    :confused:

    I dont understand why it is important to get a boy to pee standing up anyway!! Surely its easier and less messy to just keep them sat down until they are curious and confident enough to do it standing up? Thats what I did with DS, he has only just started to pee standing up at age 4 as he's seen the other boys at school doing it. The only other times he has pee'd standing up is in an emergency outside!

    If he's anything like mine, the reason I want him to pee standing up is that when sitting, it points between the seat and the bowl, and so he pees on the floor! :eek:

    Just been reading about the man who came up with the idea for these, think he's going to be on the new series of Dragons' Den. Apparently the product is called "Max" after his son, as he had problems when toilet training. He has spent £80,000 on the project so far (from personal loans & a second mortgage) so maybe we should support him or he might be on here soon asking for advice!
  • think ping pong balls work ok or even wine bottle corks with faces drawn on. thats even cheaper.

    Give me strength ... has every Englishman gone into 'brain dead' mode? If you want to P, just P why do you need to be told how to do it? Is it such an educationally demanding task? - Come on, everyone knows how to P
