When it’s time to potty train your little one, Elmo leads the way! The Potty Time with Elmo app is a fun way to ease the transition from diapers to big-kid underpants. Developed for children ready to potty train, this charming app features everyone’s favorite furry red monster, Elmo, helping his toy Baby David learn to use the potty. Also included are animated stickers, a reward chart, puzzles, and 5 fun songs:
+ When It’s Potty Time, You Feel It
+ I Am Waiting on the Potty
+ Flush Goes the Potty
+ I Wash, Wash, Wash My Hands
+ Boom, Boom, Ain’t It Great to Be a Big Kid
With familiar tunes and instructive, easy-to-sing lyrics, the songs provide a super fun way to learn good bathroom habits.
The Potty Time with Elmo app will engage, encourage, and delight even the youngest kids. Learn the basics of potty use by listening to the story and interacting with it. Wait for the giggles to start! Tap around to hear fun sounds and Elmo’s encouraging words. Tap Elmo’s radio to hear catchy potty-time songs and sing along. Find stickers to collect on every story screen and add them to the sticker book. And track potty progress with the Sticker Reward Chart.
This comprehensive potty-training app includes:
+ Elmo, a favorite Sesame Street friend!
+ Elmo-voiced catch phrases and positive reinforcement
+ Lively storybook narration, with sound effects
+ 5 fun-to-sing potty-time songs
+ 15 animated stickers that are collected in a sticker book
+ Sticker Reward Chart to track your child’s progress
+ 5 potty-themed puzzles
+ Helpful training tips for parents of would-be potty-goers
+ 3 reading modes to choose from:
. . . • “Read to Me” mode, which lets you hear the story read aloud; find stickers, sounds, and songs; and turn the pages
. . . • “Read It Myself” mode, which lets you read the story yourself OR hear it read aloud; find stickers, sounds, and songs; and turn the pages
. . . • “Just Watch” mode, which automatically plays the story, sounds, and songs, and turns the pages—no interaction required.
Audio issues? If you do not hear any sound while playing this app, try one of the following:
1) Check the volume buttons on the outside edge of your device to make sure the volume is not set to the lowest setting.
2) Check the Ring/Silent switch (or Side Switch on the iPad) on the outside edge of your device to make sure it is not set to silent (mute).
3) If #2 above does not work, please note that, on an iPad, the Side Switch can be used in two different ways: as a Mute button or as a Rotation Lock button (so the screen doesn’t rotate when you tilt the device). It is possible that the sound is muted and the functionality of the switch is set to Rotation Lock. In this case, flipping the switch back and forth will not turn the sound on and off. It will only affect the rotation of the screen.
To change the functionality of the switch back to Mute On/Off, go into your Settings. Under the "General" category , find the “Use Side Switch to” box, and check Mute. Then exit Settings and return to the app. Now the Side Switch should work to turn the audio on or off.
Once you turn on the audio, you can change the Side Switch back to a Rotation Lock button, and the audio will remain on.

Awesome potty resource!
My son would wear undies at school but not at home & then would have accidents. After playing with this app, he wanted to wear solely undies & loves them! He likes the songs (yes, there is sound despite what another reviewer said!) & the puzzles. If this app got my STUBBORN potty-trainer going, it will work for yours!
This moves very slow and my 16 month old loses interest immediately. He has more fun shaking my bottle of mouthwash. He loves the monster at the end of the book apps, I wish there were more of those types of interactive and character voiced apps available. Guess we will stick to those while waiting on the potty.
This would have been loads better if elmo was the one actually using the potty, instead it is his bear, 'David,' that is the potty person. My kids don't really pay attention because of that.
