Description:

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

    • (a) Technical Field of the Invention

The present invention concerns a moveable children's potty training chair with the bottom-rinsing function, especially a children's potty training chair design possessing extreme sanitation and convenient usage.

(b) Description of the Prior Art

There are many kinds of children's potty training chair structures seen on the market presently. Referring to FIG. 6 is a kind of model; the said potty training chair (80) has a body (81). The body (81) generally has cheery and lovable designs to attract children's attention. There is a leading opening (82) in the body (81), and a gathering basin (83), which can be drawn out installed at the base of the leading opening (82). When children need to defecate or is asked to defecate at fixed times, the action taken will not be limited to inside the bathrooms due to the easily moveable characteristic of the potty training chair (80), and children may defecate sitting on the toy-like potty training chair. In this case, it not only mean the grown-ups no longer have to guard the bathrooms to keep an eye on children's defecation conditions, but also increase children's interest in going to the toilets, virtually cultivating their physical timely regularity in going to the toilets.

Therefore, various designs of children's potty training chair can be seen on the market at the choice of consumers. However, the blemish in the otherwise perfect design is that in the past or the present, the designed function of the potty training chair is simply providing a mono function of the gathering basin gathering excrement. But in truth, children encounter many obstacles and problems when defecating. For example:

    • (1) With different diet habits, there are still some children who will encounter obstacles in defecation. Especially when children are mostly fond of high calorie food instead of food such as vegetable and fruit, they in turn caused excrement to be too hard. At times like these, even though children's attention will be attracted by the potty training chair design, the defecating pain will still cause children obstacle in defecation. With the potty training chair having no other assisting functions, there is no way to heighten its effectiveness.
    • (2) After children defecate, wiping tissue is still required to wipe clean the ordure near the anus area But after defecation, children still feel uncomfortable around the anus, if it is still being wiped directly by dry wiping tissue, it will bring uncomfortably painful feelings.
    • (3) Since the structure of the anus is more special, there are often cases of ordure remaining in the creases of the anus still after going to the toilet. If it is then wiped directly, not only might there be unsanitary cases of not being wiped clean, but also cause problems for the easy infection of germs.

Therefore, present children's potty training chair design with mono function is not satisfying to children. Especially on how to help children cultivate the habit of going to the toilet at fixed times since young with a more relaxed and happy mind, there is in fact much still needed in the present children's potty training chair structure designs.
