Little Looster Review

I don't how well you remember your childhood, but do you remember back to the time when your feet didn't reach the floor when you sat on the toilet? I remember it, because I am so short that I STILL have trouble... :-) It can be very disconcerting for a child to try to use the "big potty" and then have his/her feet dangling in the air. The Little Looster provides comfort and leg support for all of those years when a child's legs just won't reach the floor yet. This can be SO helpful in potty training and make using the "big potty" less frightening.

My Take
The twins are still too young for potty training, but I put the Little Looster in the bathroom anyway. This may be TMI, but when I was seeing an acupuncturist a while back, I remember in the bathroom of her office building there was a foot stool right in front of each toilet with a sign that said "Please feel free to use this foot stool. When the feet are propped up, the body is in the position for optimal release." And you know something? Propping your feet up does help! And for someone who's pregnant and going all the flipping time, making sure you're "fully empty" every time you go is really important. :-) And I'm really excited about using it when the twins are ready for potty training. They'll be able to get up to the toilet all by themselves without worrying about it being too tall, and they'll have something to put their feet on while they're sitting so their feet aren't dangling.

Pros:
  • Provides comfort, confidence and cleanliness for kids in the bathroom.
  • Supports kids (and parents) legs while using the bathroom--no dangling legs!
  • No more scary feeling of “falling in" for kids.
  • Allows children to have their hands free at all times.
  • No need to grip the back of the toilet seat or the inner, germ covered rim.
Cons:
  • The Little Looster is supposed to be an extension of the toilet with no need to shuffle it around the bathroom, but our bathroom is tiny and having the Little Looster in front of the toilet makes closing the door of the bathroom difficult without moving the stool.
  • Also, the Little Looster should be able to sit in front of the toilet without interfering with adults using the bathroom, but since I'm very short it makes it hard for me to actually get up onto the toilet without stepping on it. So far I haven't broken it, so it must be able to take a lot of weight, but I try my best to not to stand on it.
  • It is quite expensive to buy.
Cost: You can buy the Little Looster for $39.99 + shipping ($$$$$).

Overall: I give the Little Looster an 8/10.

For everyone that would like to have a Little Looster in their own home, here's a discount code good for $7 off. Just put in "FL81" without the quotes when you check out. This will be active until 8/15/10!
