Forget about the gadgets at CES in Las Vegas and get down to basics: toilets.
Specifically toilet seats, made by injection molder Bemis Manufacturing Co., and its introduction of the NextStep2 which integrates a toddler training seat into a regular toilet seat. That means one seat can serve the whole family.
"Children will use the built-in seat confidently, knowing it's sized right for them. They can also lower the potty seat themselves when needed," Bemis said in a Jan. 7 news release.
And the seat has a "WhisperClose" design so it won't slam or clang down. And when the child gets older, just remove the smaller potty training seat.
Bemis may not get the same ... splash ... as those products shown at CES this week, but you can bet it's products will show up in a lot more homes. Now if they could just create something to make sure men don't leave the seat up.
