How Potty Rider Started
The Wild RIDE from a “Good Laugh” to the BEST #PottyTraining Stool for Kids & Parents!
Sometimes the best ideas come from a good laugh! This is exactly how the Potty Rider® potty training stool, the brain-child of Fred & Elna Mulford, began. Originally an idea for a gag gift for a motorcycle lover, the Potty Rider® prototype instantly gave Fred & Elna the idea of the perfect tool for parents potty training their children. The Potty Rider’s design evolved from the PVC original to a beautiful Baltic Birch plywood that is sturdy, safe and long lasting potty stool.
When Potty Rider® launched in June of 2017, the Mulford’s expected a measure of success because there was no other product like it on the market. But they were unprepared for the overwhelming, positive response from parents (over 13M views of the Potty Rider® introduction YouTube Video); and the tidal wave of orders. The success of the patented Potty Rider® comes from the commitment to quality that Fred & Elna have established in its’ design. Every Potty Rider is handcrafted here in the U.S. and absolutely focused on the safety. The built-in step platform is outfitted with non-slip treads, cool grip handlebars, and a sturdy stool platform – all of which helps your child feel safe, supported & encourages them to use the “Big Potty”. And the small footprint design is light & easy to store in the shower or bathtub when not in use.
But as important as the safety features are, what makes Potty Rider such an excellent potty training (s)tool 😊 is the child-friendly designs (motorcycles, ponies & more, Oh My!) and the cool accessories (sound boxes, iPad holder, etc.) that turn potty training from trauma to FUN! For parents & children (including children with special needs); Potty Rider® is the perfect #PottyTraining solution; ensuring No Tears – No Fears – Just Cheers!
