‘Mummy I really need a wee!’

It’s mostly always a phrase heard when in traffic, in the middle of nowhere or in a busy public place that doesn’t have toilets. Has this ever happened to you?

Introducing the Petit En Suite, a fully portable child’s pop-up privacy room, designed to aid the toilet training process.

Petite Ensuite
My daughter is a ‘hider’. Is your little one too?

She runs behind curtains, chairs, sofas, anything; so she won’t be seen going to the potty. It’s apparently so common for children to hide themselves when needing to go to the bathroom, so don’t worry, you’re not alone!

At the moment we’re working with Huggie’s on getting Evie potty trained. They’ve given us some great tips so far, but one of our issues is getting Evie to feel comfortable, with going to the toilet publicly.

We were recently sent a Petit En Suite to review, and knew straight away that it was a fun way to encourage Evie to use the toilet more, when we’re both at home and out and about.

Petit Ensuite

The idea behind the Petit En Suite is to give little ones a safe, familiar, fun private environment, where they can go to the bathroom. We love that it’s portable and that it can be packed down really easily, so that it can be taken anywhere.

Look how easy it is to set up and put down!

When we were sent the Petit En Suite, I must admit, I had a bit of a giggle. It sounds a bit ludicrous at first to have a pop-up toilet, but it’s actually, absolutely genius! The design is not only adorable, but it’s really clever too.

Here are some of the features…


Within seconds of opening the tent up and showing Evie, she excitedly danced about shouting;

‘I need a weewee!’

I’ve never seen her so excited to use the toilet. We’ve had the tent for 24 hours now and Evie loves it! It has been used more times than I can count.

Inside the tent, it is designed to look like a bathroom, with a picture of a toilet, a sink and even a mirror on the wall.


My favourite part is that there is actually a little pocket to put some toilet roll and hand sanitiser in!

Privacy is the choice of your little ones, as there are two windows that can be rolled up or down and even a skylight to let light in.

Another great feature, is that the floor of the tent can be removed for easy cleaning. Plus, the material has been designed so any ‘spillages’ that are bound to happen, can easily be wiped off.


The Petit En Suite comes complete with a travel potty, that comes in two detachable pieces. This is so that you can add potty liners in-between, for easier disposal.

They really have thought of everything, with tent pegs for windy days and UV protection for sunny.

We have a feeling that the Petit En Suite, is going to be more than worth it for the foreseeable future, as it even doubles up as a great role play toy.

At the moment it’s not only Evie that’s getting full use of the Petit En Suite, but all of her toys are too!


Our Verdict

We love the Petit En Suite. It will come in handy for those roadside emergency potty moments. Plus, it’ll make a great essential addition for festivals, camping or if you’re going travelling!

If you haven’t seen yet, we’re heading off travelling around Europe for a whole month. The Petite En Suite will be coming with us, so keep an eye out for our travel posts.

    I think that solves a problem that never really existed in the first place! Both our kids have potty trained and I don’t think them or anyone else minds seeing a toddler using a potty in public when they’re caught short. It doesn’t happen often and I think this really just draws attention to it x

  • OMG! this is such an amazing idea! I tried training my little one but we go over that in 3 hours! I think i still have time till his 3rd birthday! I am just not ready myself! But this is such a good initiative to get the little ones do their business! I know my son will love it!

  • Lisa lambert says:

    I like the concept of it but with twins I think it would cause more hassle for me rather than help with arguments over who is using it. Although I may come back and visit this as I go through potty training over the coming weeks x

    I had this problem with my friend’s 3 year old today, he wanted to go for a wee whist on a car and we were stuck in traffic. He ended up using a bottle. But this is amazing, will send this post to my friend. x

  • This fab, I have neve seen anything like this before! We are potty training my son at the moment and he has a bit of a phobia of toilets and will only use a potty, he won’t use it in public though as he likes to hide on his potty x

  • Wow this is very different. Love your video 🙂
    Although I can see why the idea of the concept was created, I’m not too sure if this would just attract more attention? xx

    This is such a cool idea! I wish I had seen this when we were potty training because my little guy was a bit shy and this would have given him a bit more peace of mind!

    That is super cute and SUCH a good idea. Great for camping and travelling 🙂

  • Lauren says:

    This is a fabulous idea, I can’t tell you how many of my friends’ children have hidden behind the couch with their potty, as who wants to sit in front of everyone going to the loo (think we all have nightmares about this ) I also work with disabled children and this is so clever as it can often take much longer to toilet train and the toilet like renvironment can help with familiarisation Well done…

  • Faye Grainger says:

    Am delighted to say I actually have one of these! I discovered it on Twitter where it has lots of interest from mums (like me) who were looking for a solution to ‘potty shy toddlers’! It’s been really useful to help my little one find the privacy he needed to to relax and let go as it were 😉 I am passing it on to my sister-in-law for when her baby reaches potty training stage.
