Updated on October 6, 2015

Portable toilet seat which is also commonly known as portable potty seat is a very handy tool shall you bring along your small kid when traveling to new places. It works just like any normal potty training seat that you might have in your home; the only difference is that portable toilet seat can be folded and packed into your traveling bag easily. You might break the normal potty seat should you pack it into a bag.

In case if you haven't heard of it, potty seat is the extra piece of seat that you place on the normal toilet seat at your home. Wit a smaller opening, your kid can feel more secured when sitting on it. Some people prefer using a family toilet seat instead of a potty training seat. Family toilet seat is more convenient compares to potty seat since it incorporates both usage (adult and kids) into one single piece.

As said, family seat is basically made up of two different seats that is combined into one (plus the lid which makes it a three pieces seat). One bigger seat for the adult and the other smaller seat for the kids. When an adult need to use the toilet, all he or she has to do it just lift up the smaller seat. And when it's time for the kid, all your child has to do is just put down the smaller seat.

As seen in the picture on the right, the Mommy's Helper Cushie Traveler seat is a cushioned portable toilet seat that can be folded into about quarter of its size.

With that kind of size and which it is made of cushion, you don't have to worry that it will break when jam packed into your bag.

Another plus is the cushion layer can provide a more comfortable potty training environment for your kids whether it is at home or during traveling.

Your kid will definitely love to have it own seat when when using public toilet which quite dirty most of the time.

Just like the first seat, the PRI Folding Potty with handles can also be folded into fourths for easy storing during traveling. It also comes with a large ziptop bag which you can slip the seat neatly into it.

The only down size about this seat is that it does not have the cushion layer of the first model. Well, I believer it won't make a huge difference since your kid will feel good sitting on it.

    Interesting hub so many different toilet seats for kids. We always carried one for our kids. The US does have toilet seat covers in many public restrooms but they are a pain to use. Voted up.

    I see, yeap it's not good for the environment and our constraint budget. Well, the only way is to choose the right toilet at the right time at the right place :)

    Public toilet in South Korea also provide disposable toilet.

    Yeah, but disposable is not very environmental friendly and it will add up to my already increasing living expenses! I think in US, they have disposable toilet seat cover in the public toilets.

    Yeap, agree with you, men's toilets are mostly dirty, particular over here in Malaysia where cleanliness is at the bottom of priority.

    BTW, you can use disposable toilet seat cover. A pack normally contains 10 pcs and it's very easy to use.

    I wonder if there's one for adult. Using the public toilet can be quite a nuisance as not many people use the toilet seats with the right attitude. I have seen men's toilet seat covered with urine. I just don't get it sometimes why can't they use the designated urinal bowls.
