Potty training goes high-tech with new iPotty

|
iPotty

The iPotty aims to keep kids entertained during toilet training.

Which product is stopping people in their tracks at the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week?

The new iPotty, from CTA Digital. Who would have ever guessed?

“Everybody walking by the CTA Digital booth at CES 2013 does a double-take at a colorful plastic object on the ground,” writes Amanda Kooser in a story for CNET. “They stop and stare. They take pictures. One woman declares it the best thing she’s seen at CES.”

This toilet-training device with a special holder for an iPad allows kids to be entertained while learning to use the potty. At only $40, the iPad doesn’t come with this potty, but it does include a special splash guard for your iPad as well as a pee guard that’s placed at the tip of the pot so your fancy tech gadget doesn’t get wet.

Ridiculous? I certainly think so! The American Academy of Pediatrics has made it clear that young kids shouldn’t be in front of screens and as a mom, I’d recommend training kids the old-fashioned way: with a good picture book. But this crazy product, which will be available on Amazon next month, does win a few bonus points for cleverness.

Is the iPotty the craziest baby invention ever? Take a look at these other weird and wacky baby products and then decide.

  2. I agree this is completely ridiculous! What happened to good old fashioned techniques? Parents need to spend time teaching their children and not replacing it with technology!
