Inventors of the Potty Watch Find Success Despite Bad Economy

SANDY, Utah, May 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The American economy may be slowly recovering from the worst recession in decades, but don't expect Alan and Pamela Parkinson to be looking for a bailout anytime soon. These parent-inventors have turned an idea for a toilet training timer into a successful business that recently cleared one million dollars in sales, thanks to word-of-mouth advertising and the power of the internet.

The Potty Watch(R) lets your little one know when it's time to "GO!" The Potty Watch toilet training timer can be set to go off every 30, 60, or 90 minutes.  Fun "potty time" songs and flashing lights let kids know it's time to "try," then the timer automatically resets for consistent reminders all day long.  The Potty Watch does the reminding so you don't have to!  This Pediatrician recommended toilet training timer is available at Babies "R" Us, BuyBuy Baby, and independent retailers nationwide.  www.pottytimeinc.com  (801) 523-5080

"The old adage 'build a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door' still holds true, and the internet makes it easier to get the word out," said Alan, president of Potty Time, Inc. (pottytimeinc.com) After being laid off from a kitchen appliance company, Alan took an early 401K withdrawal to design and manufacture the Potty Watch®, a wristwatch shaped toilet training timer which uses music and flashing lights to remind toddlers when it's time to "go."   The Potty Watch® does the reminding so you don't have to.

"Everyone thought we were crazy," said Pamela, CEO of the company, "but the investment has paid for itself several times over. We've sold over 250,000 units in all 50 states, mostly from word of mouth referrals. Our sales just keep growing! The average family will spend about $2000 on diapers before a child is potty trained, so spending $10 to speed up potty training makes sense to a lot of parents. And the great part is, those parents are happy and tell their friends about us."

"It has been fun to watch our small business grow from selling on our own website to expanding to specialty catalogues like One Step Ahead & Lillian Vernon.  Now we have placement nationwide in Babies R Us, BuyBuy Baby, and over 300 independent retailers. We are living proof that the American Dream is still alive and well, and that there's no bad time to have a good idea!"
