So, I purchased this originally because I wanted to get a "Squatty Potty"... but I didn't want some ugly white plastic stool or something double the price with that branding plastered on it. I wanted it a bit more discreet. This is the perfect addition to the bathroom! When not in use, I have a basket of towels or a plant perched on it so it looks like it has a purpose. My nephew also uses it to reach the sink when he comes over. So all in all, I love this little stool and I recommend it!
