(RNN) - The woes of potty training are well known, but technology is helping kids who can't master the toilet. It's called the iPotty.
The base of the iPotty looks like a traditional potty with a removable bowl, seat and a pee-guard.
But … wait for it ... it also holds an iPad.
It was designed to help children learn to use the potty by keeping them entertained when nature calls.
The stand can be rotated between vertical and horizontal views and adjusted to three positions.
The iPotty is marketed for children from 6 months to 3 years. There's also a removable screen guard cover to protect it from any "accidents."
It can also convert to a child activity seat with the included seat cover so they can safely play apps, read and watch videos at any time.
"We've been delighted and overwhelmed at the response we've had; apparently we hit upon something that could be quite useful for many frustrated parents," said Steve Stern, CTA Digital's VP of sales, in a news release.
While Stern speaks highly of this techno-training potty, many user reviews on Amazon beg to differ.
"So I bought this potty trainer with every intention of teaching my toddler the joys of pottying while fully distracted by technological media," K. W. McCade wrote.
"Everything was going just wonderfully until, in a fit of excitement and hand-waving over the wonderfully detailed graphics on my pads HD screen - my 2-year-old sprayed the walls, the floor, me - and my iPad!
"It was too late to return the iPad and unfortunately my insurance does not cover urination-by-toddler, but I am most DEFINITELY returning this pee magnet."
Other buyers jokingly say it's good for contingencies ranging from airplane travel to increased productivity.
Maker CTA Digital said the iPotty is compatible with the iPad 2 and the third or fourth generation iPad.
There are dozens of helpful potty training apps and interactive books already available in the app store that will work well in conjunction with the iPotty, according to CTA Digital.
This potty training seat is now for sale on Amazon for $39.99. Sadly, the iPad is sold separately.
