Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
Sesame Street's goodwill ambassador, Elmo, hosts this upbeat and reassuring program that will leave toddlers flush with the excitement about learning to use the potty or toilet by themselves. Reassuring words, comical vignettes, animation, and encouraging songs foster themes of independence and perseverance ("It just takes time," is a sample lyric) while fostering a sense of pride and accomplishment, not just in using a potty but in the many things kids learn to do as they grow, such as hitting a baseball and tying a shoe ("Look at what you can do now"). Viewers are encouraged to "listen to your body" and are reassured that "accidents do happen sometimes." Other songs ease the transition from diapers to training pants and underpants, and promote good hygiene habits -- a tour of a toilet paper factory is a fun diversion. A montage of the many different age-appropriate names children have for bodily excretions will produce giggles. This is a lot to fit into a 45-minute program, but all the themes are indelibly reinforced in the progress of Baby Bear's sister Curly, who, by program's end, will have successfully used the potty for the first time. As Elmo states, "When you gotta go, you gotta go." Elmo's Potty Time will make this rite of passage a positive experience. It is certain to be No. 1 one with viewers; and perhaps No. 2 as well.

My son is 16 months and we have been watching this for some time now. It is fun, educational and easily watched repetitively. My son was showing signs of being ready to potty train which, is why I made the purchase but ended up not quite being ready. Now, we watch it so that he is familiar with it and all potty training foibles for when we start in a couple of months. I love how it includes the bears, Elmo's family and so many others. the music is phenomenal and imaginative. they did not rehash old segments but made new ones completely.

My Niece lent me a copy of this video because it worked so well with her daughter. Our Granddaughter liked it so much that we bought her her own copy for home. The problem is that she hasn't made the connection between the video and what she's supposed to do on her own potty. I'm sure it will be a big help potty training a lot of kids and there will be some whom it won't work with. Still, it's a real good video that I highly recommend for toddlers.

We bought this DVD in preparation for Potty training. Our 2.5 year old decided that she wanted to do it on her own, but she had a lot of accidents. She was mentally ready, but she couldn't understand what was physically going on. Elmo taught her to "listen to her body", and it was a breakthrough for her. I find that in her case, she can much easier relate to characters on TV as well as her peers in school than to her parents. This DVD took a lot of stress out of the potty training situation, and gave the control to our daughter.

My 1 1/2 yr old daughter LOVES this dvd. It has great songs and she's also learning all about the potty, that it's ok to have accidents, about washing and drying her hands afterwards. They repeat the messages quite a bit which is great!

This video is sooo cute. I purchase it for all my relatives and friends as their infants become toddlers. Adults will get a kick out of it as well as the kids. Doesn't get irritating like so many kids movies do when you play it again and again.

My grandson loved getting this for his 2nd birthday!! I don't know how well it works as a potty training aid but he sure loves watching it! It was an excellent price and I already bought another Elmo DVD for him for Christmas. His parents can't afford cable so this gets him that all important PBS time.

I bought this for my Granddaughter--it is her favorite video. Elmo & friends do a great job explaining how & when to use the potty. My granddaughter is only 20 months old but already is grasping the idea of using the potty chair. I would reoommend for the toddler starting to use the potty.

Although my 3 yr old son LOVES Elmo, he doesnt want to follow what he does. this video is very educational and fun. the storyline is to-the-point and gives the right idea of what to do and when to go on the potty. Elmo was delightful and charming and my son loves singing along with him.

Our daughter seems motivated and engaged while watching this DVD, and has asked about potty since; although we're not there yet, it's the right direction
