About Potty Time with Elmo

Potty-time with Elmo is an interactive e-book with two modes: Read and Play and Listen and Play. The story includes songs about toilet training that are set to familiar tunes; this makes them easy for children to learn and the lyrics help them remember what to do. Several pages of the book have potty-themed games such as jumping over obstacles to get Elmo to the potty, popping bubbles while washing hands, and puzzles.

Not only do these features engage children in the story, but they can also serve to entertain children while they sit on the potty. Additionally, from a developmental perspective, they help to hone hand-eye coordination, concentration, and fine motor skills. The app features a virtual Potty Chart and a variety of trophies for children to earn as they progress through the book, its activities, and their becoming toilet-trained. The app is a cute, engaging way to get children excited about learning how to use the toilet.
