Lupi Lu is my best friend. Ok, I should explain that Lupi Lu is not in fact Lulu’s loopy sister, but rather an innovative toilet seat designed for toddlers and young children! The fantastic concept of having a smaller toilet seat hole, PLUS the normal sized toilet seat beneath that, makes for an easy transition in toilet training for your youngster.
Lupi Lu replaces your existing toilet seat entirely, and with the beautiful shiny white finish, what’s not to love! Our son’s toilet is also the toilet that guests use, so the mounting pile of toilet training insert seats, padded seats and potties that were beneath the cistern were unsightly and unhygienic. It was an issue I’d been trying to conquer for quite some time. With Lupi Lu, we no longer need to worry about any of these issues! It completely replaces all of this, and because it is perfectly stable and doesn’t pinch, nor do children need to be lifted over that front lip that some toilet seat inserts have, it easily exceeds any other toilet-training product I’ve tried thus far.
Made from strong polypropylene with a high quality finish, it’s super hygienic and easy to clean. The set-back hinge means I can clean right up to beneath the toilet seat. The classy design means it suits any decor, and overall the Lupi Lu looks and feels like a great, strong quality toilet training product!
Lupi Lu has quite a few commendable features. For instance, the soft-closing lid. Some time ago, my toilet-training son was frightened by an unexpected slamming toilet seat that slipped from his grasp as he lowered it, and he was scared of the toilet for about a week resulting in a setback in toilet training. Not to mention slammed fingers in the toilet…until I had kids, I had no idea how many things could go wrong with the simplest of tasks! The soft close hinge is a godsend, and it caught my 4-year old’s attention: he tried it out half a dozen times, becoming mesmerised! He loved it right from the start!
The installation of Lupi Lu is very simple and requires no tools. It comes with an instruction sheet, and the website also provides plenty of video tutorials and information. There are two nuts at the back of the toilet that hold the seat in place, and even better are the plastic bolt that are offset to allow for slight adjustments depending on your toilet requirements (distance from the cistern and between the two bolts). It took master 4 and I all of 5 minutes to fit: and that included giving the toilet a good clean beneath the old seat!
These features are all great, but my favourite thing about Lupi Lu is how user-friendly it is. It really is just like using a normal toilet seat for grownups, simply lifting up the lid and the toddler seat. I love that the child seat is hidden away when not in use, and my sons love that they’re just like big boys using the same toilet as mummy & daddy. I can’t speak highly enough of Lupi Lu, and the confidence that this fantastic toilet seat has instilled in my family over such a sensitive subject such as toilet-training. I wish I’d known about it years ago!
