Our Analysis

The BabyBjorn Potty Chair is a great option for potty-training with its high back and armrests for comfort and super easy-to-clean design. Made with BPA-free plastic and available in several colors, the BabyBjorn Potty Chair has a sleek ergonomic design with a rubber bottom that helps to keep it firmly on the floor. However, more parents of boys than girls have mixed reviews about the splash guard; most say it works really well and contains the pee, while a few say it isn't high enough and the pee ends up all over the floor. But overall, parents love this product and a significant majority of them rated it with 5 stars.


The most commonly cited likes for this product are:
  • Very easy to clean
  • High back, armrests and contoured shape make it very comfortable for toddlers of many shapes and sizes


User reviews frequently note these disadvantages:
  • For little boys, some parents feel the design would be improved if the splash guard was a bit higher
  • Inner bowl may stick somewhat to child's bottom if they sit on the potty for a long time
