This month PBS KIDS launched Daniel Tiger’s Stop & Go Potty, an app that encourages kids to practice positive bathroom routines at the potty and at the sink.
Inspired by potty-related stories from the series and the effective related musical strategies featured in DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD, such as the “Stop & Go Potty” song, the new app helps kids practice stopping their play when Daniel Tiger and his friend have to go to the potty. I sure wish we had this when my daughter was learning how to how to be potty trained. I hadn’t realized how stressful it can be on both the parent and child! Luckily, she never used her Elmo potty we got her and learned on the “big person toilet.” I say thankfully because I could never figure out how best to clean that little one out correctly. It seemed like a no win situation because any way you looked at it, it was going to be a yucky job!
Daniel Tiger’s app helps teach children how to use the restroom properly. From washing their hands to using the toilet properly, he makes it seem less scary. I think that is part of the problem when teaching kids, they are frightened of using the big toilet! We only had a few mishaps along the way but a lot of worry went into making sure I was doing it in a way that wouldn’t traumatize my kid! Daniel Tiger’s Stop & Go Potty app helps parents with this important milestone in the most gentle way possible.
Daniel Tiger’s Stop & Go Potty is now available on the App Store, and is coming soon to Google Play and Amazon.
Daniel Tiger’s Stop & Go Potty App Features
- Helpful information for parents based on the teachings of Fred Rogers about using the potty
- Four games that let kids:
o Build blocks with Daniel and help him stop playing and go to the bathroom when it’s time to do so
o Play Katerina’s water game and work on self-control skills, especially about stopping and going potty
o Play a simple stacking game with Daniel’s baby sister, Margaret. She isn’t old enough to use the potty, so children can help Mom Tiger change Margaret’s diaper
