Max balls are brilliant toilet training aid created by a Dad who was frustrated at the lack of toilet training devices for little ones and they were featured on Dragon’s den! If you have read any of my potty diaries with BBand since how he has recently regressed you will no that my potty training days have not been easy. Trying to convert him from potty to toilet was really hard.
The lovely Helen from @jessie_online suggested I try out Max balls from her online store Munchkins and Poppets and because I am very proud to be a Munchkin Mummy she said they could be my first review! Great.
If you don’t already know the gorgeous Helen from @jessies_online then you should head to twitter now and follow her! She is just one of the most fabulous women on twitter and I have been fortunate enough to meet her in real life!
The max ball aim is to encourage children to sit on the toilet by having something funny to aim at. The Max Balls which come in packs or 2 or 4 balls are waterproof balls with smiley faces on them which boys can girls can use to aim and wee at. To begin with BBsat on the toilet and aimed at the ball, but now sometimes (and it is dependent on his mood) he will stand on a step at the toilet and aim! )
The Max ball is placed in toilet and can remain there for 4 weeks. For hygiene reasons you would replace after this time frame. The coated is specially formulated so that it kills 99.9%of bacteria on contact and continues working until replaced. You can flush your chain as normal without having to remove.
We have found the balls to be really fun and BBlikes to say hello and goodbye to Max now when we go! It has really made the transition from potty to toilet easier as he really was quite frightened of the toilet and because they have in been in there during his training the twins have both been happy to sit on the toilet from the beginning, although we are only getting the twins used to things at the moment, we have not actually started training yet! The only thing to be aware of are little hands that want to pick them out of the toilet – my advice, seat down!
My husband has also found them to be great fun (typical Daddy) and decided to created a point system for number of hits! To be honest I think he is only scoring himself!
They are priced at £3.25 for a 2 pack and £5.75 for a 4 pack! I think this is very reasonable for something that works so well!
I thoroughly recommend them!
I was sent a pack of two Max Ball for the purpose of this review. the opinions are my own.
