At One Proud Toddler, it isn’t really about ‘us’ at all. Instead, it's about making the best children’s products possible for our customers—you and your children. Based in San Diego County, California we spend every day pouring our hearts and souls into the products we develop. We strive to do things the right way, always, because as a family-owned company and parents ourselves we really care.

We were started by two real parents, Ryan and Ji Hyun. Former supply chain and fashion executives, they were surprised at the lack of functional potty training products available were when it came time to potty train their first child (the original "Proud Toddler"). Nothing seemed aimed at meeting the challenges of normal daily life, especially when it came to helping a newly potty-trained toddler use the restroom outside the home. There had to be a better way . . .

So Ryan and Ji Hyun set out to design a folding potty seat with the functionality of a standard “fixed ring” potty seat that was also compact enough for parents to carry with them whenever and wherever ‘potty time’ might call, be it during story time, at the museum, on the airplane, in a big box store or during a visit to grandma’s house. The goal was to create a product that would make “grown up” restrooms accessible for all small children while also helping new potty learners to bridge the gap between using the restroom at home and in public.

After countless modifications, ups, downs, trials and tribulations the One Proud Toddler team finally brought the Potty Proud Folding Potty Seat to the market. We feel the end result is the safest, most functional product of its kind on the market and think you'll agree after giving it a try!
