Review: Toilet Tales!

Parents struggling with potty training, don't fret a moment longer. The perfect toileting accompaniment has arrived in these gorgeous board books from Ice Water Press.

Featuring sturdy (practically wipeable!) covers and board pages, perfect for your toddler's determined grip, these adorable books follow the trials of a wee little queen and wee little captain as they learn how to progress from potty to loo.

Captain Jack is fascinated by the toilet's flush. He likes to hear it before he braves the briny depths of the cavernous hole before him. Can he tinkle and maybe even go for no 2s without a care in the world?

Our little Queen Bella wants to wear underpants. She liketh the nappy no more. If she learns to use the toilet, she can wear spotty new undies or even undies with hearts, flowers and stripes. My, that would perfectly fulfill a royal desire. Can Bella make a grand splash or even a royal flush?

Both books feature a sound effect button on the front cover that little fingers will delight in pushing to hear the loo flush. Cute.
