Babyway Deluxe Tot Pot/ Step Stool/ Padded Toilet &hellip by Babyway
You'd think a potty was a simple item; it is essentially a bucket. A bucket that really must not leak. This one does leak. Every time.
The stream diverter thing appears to be the root cause of it (and our) woes; liquid gets under the seat, and from there it drips all over - some goes in the bucket, some goes on the white part around the bucket, quite a bit ends up on the carpet.

It does make a handy stool and dispense toilet roll, but if you value 'water' tightness in a potty, get a one piece moulding - that's where we're looking now.

The layout is just as all of DK's books; looks great and does contain an amazing number of words for its size. I can't fault the layout at all, but as a new Italian learner, I needed a dictionary and thought this looked good for beginners, but it's a phrase/vocab book and not a dictionary.
For improving your vocab by subject area it's great, but for looking up words quickly, it's a bit awkward. It has a comprehensive index at the back, but if it's a dictionary you need this might not be your best place to start.

In many ways it reads more like a thriller than an historical account, flipping by chapter from the Soviet side to the American side.

I disagree with the reviews that suggest Brzezinski is biased against the Russians, I… Read more
