Okay, I don't know what to make of this, but the Lavatory Navigator, or Lav Nav is on sale at Play.com for £12.19, a 39% saving of the RRP of £19.99
I think if someone gave me this as a gift, I might be worried they were saying my bathroom stank, but then, hearing the toilet training woes of my friends with sons, I can see the possibilities of this rather bizarre product.
According to the website, when you approach the toilet in the dark, the light turns on thanks to a sensor. It incorporates a night-light so as not to wake anyone else in the house, a visual targeting system (say what now?) and 'put the seat down' reminder technology – which probably negates the night-light.
The Lav Nav light comes on when you approach in the dark, and turns off after you leave, shining gentle yet sufficient light where you need it, when you need it.
Better yet, they say, the Lav Nav uses a red or greed light to cleverly show the position of the seat. It's very bright, very fun and above all else very useful!
I'm not sure how a child will feel about the eerie light in the middle of the night, but if it saves a few mop ups in the morning, it might be worth a try, if not a wacky little gift.
