Brilliant toddler toilet seat. . There is not enough time in the day to write product reviews so i seldom do but i felt i had to review this product as the poor earlier reviews almost put me off buying it. I am so glad i decided to ignore them and buy it anyway as in my experience this product is excellent. The product i bought was supplied by plumbtap. I ordered it on friday at lunchtime and it arrived the next morning – saturday. When i unpacked it i recognised the blind hole fittings as i have used them on a different toilet seat in the past. They are necessary when you cannot get underneath to the other side of the fitting as is quite common in modern toilets. There were also fixings for if you can get to the bottom. I fitted the toilet seat quite easily as i had used these fittings before. It is a bit of a faff but a bit of patience and a cross head screwdriver is all that is required.

The description is misleading. The seats close softly but not the lid.

Only child seat is soft close. Only 3 stars as only the child seat is slow close which is a disappointment, apart from that good quality product, easy to assemble. Here are the specifications for the EcoSpa Premium Soft Close D-Shape Toilet Seat:

  • ECOSPA Premium Family Soft Closing Toilet Seat with Adjustable Top/Bottom Fixing Hinges
  • This Premium family toilet seat has a D-shape design and is very STRONG and hardwearing
  • Very hygienic and easy to clean – Width 360mm | Length 464mm
  • THE ONLY PREMIUM D-SHAPE TOILET SEAT FOR CHILDREN ON AMAZON
  • Easy to install, complete with instructions and a 5 Year Guarantee

Brilliant item, was wary due to some of the poor reviews. Colour is pure white and matches brand new bathroom suite perfectly. Only negative is while both toilet seats are soft closing, this does not apply to the lid – and as such as have already had a few instances of little fingers being nipped by the lid falling.

Good enough, but not perfect. Decent, well made and strong (i’m very heavy) as easy to fit as any other toilet seat and a handy quick removal feature for easy cleaning. Perfect for toilet training our toddler, he loves it. My one gripe is that the soft close mechanism could be a little stiffer, not as soft close as our previous seat. Not too bothered, we can live with it, but at the price i was expecting a little more quality in this particular area as it was a feature we bought this seat in particular for. Also it’s the two seats that are soft close and not the lid, which we knew when buying it. Again, not too much of an issue but would be nicer and a bit easier for the little one to close. Happy with it overall, hence the 4 stars.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Kids are using it already!
  • Good enough, but not perfect
  • Highly recommended for families with children learning to use the loo!

Good in quality, solid not just a plastic cover. If it can be delivered outside uk, that will be perfect.

This seat is great, and gives our little one independence in using the toilet and is great for his confidence. My one complaint though is that it is not entirely soft close – the two seats are, but the top cover is not – which is actually worse than none of them being soft close, as you sometimes forget about the lid and it crashes down – watch out little fingersthe quality is good, and delivery was quick, so generally no complaints.

I got this because it’s a pain to find a temporary potty seat cover for a d shaped toilet seat, and other covers (for regular toilet seats) aren’t stable. My daughter was refusing to sit on the toilet with the potty training cover because they were slipping and sliding while she was on it, and without the cover, she felt like she was going to fall in the toilet. I was a bit worried it wasn’t going to fit my toilet (which already had a broken toilet seat that was too small for the toilet), especially after one reviewer said it didn’t fit any standard toilets, but i’m glad i ignored that review and bought it anyway. My daughter (18 months) is very happy to sit on the toilet now. She finds it much more comfortable and is willing to go along with being potty trained. The other nice thing about this toilet seat is that you can remove the seat and give it a good wash if you want. The silver button releases the seat from the bolts. I only wish i had looked for this sooner.

Highly recommended for families with children learning to use the loo. Fine for the whole family to use. Very good quality and easy to fit (fixings supplied so you don’t have to reuse your old ones) with full fitting instructions as well. We fitted it to a new-style loo (d shaped with the new style seat fixings). If you have the older style oval-shaped loo – with the classic two bolts & wing nuts that fix the seat to the pan (and always get all manky underneath) then you need a different product as it won’t fit. Hint: the two bolts supplied are far too long so you’ll need to carefully measure how long they need to be, then chop them down to length with a hacksaw. Not hard but just needs a little care. Note to seller: why can’t you supply the correct length of bolts?.

No need for potties – hoorah. Has made toilet training so much easier. We don’t bother with a potty. Just wish the lid was soft close also.

Superb easy to follow instructions fits well and great for independant potty training kids. My 2 yr old loves this and he won’t use his potty so this is a great option.
