Cacabine, for privacy at potty time
Its name is a kind of French portmanteau word, combining 'poop' and 'cabin', so you can perhaps guess the purpose of the latest assemble-it-yourself cardboard construction.
Yes, for those kids who would rather be left alone to the rather delicate business of potty training, comes this rather spiffy privy. All the benefits of the brick outhouse, *in* the house.
Inside, cute cartoon animals will keep your kid company while he treads the lonely path towards nappy liberation. And, although he will feel unwatched, the walls contain little windows just so that you can make sure everything's going the way it should.
Is it necessary? Absolutely not. Will it make your kid feel like you've bought him his own walk-in litter tray, just like the cats have? Yes, but that need not be a bad thing. Try to think of it from your kid's point of view.
Will it be used the way it was intended? Quite possibly not, but then you've also gained a playhouse, so who's complaining.
The Cacabine is available from Pirouette Cacahouete at 46 €. Apologies to the blog where I first saw this; my system has failed me. Shout if you think it was you!
