Got a potty training toddler, but gotta get out of the house? Never fear. Not all public bathrooms are scary. Plan your trip around these intown locations, and you won’t have to worry about wet pants. Because these awesome kid bathrooms will have even the most potty-phobic toddler happily sitting high and dry.
Walk in the front door. Don’t take the stairs, don’t pass go and definitely don’t collect $200. Before you go searching for curtain rods and cabinetry, make a pit stop in the family bathroom just inside the entrance. The comfy lounge has toys (because everybody needs toys to entertain them on the pot!) and a changing table for younger siblings. The sink has a stool that’s just the right height. And when you’re finished with business, you can head upstairs to the cafeteria for a snack. And curtains, of course.
The family bathroom in Lenox Mall isn’t anything special, really. It’s just your basic bathroom: sink, stool, kid-sized toilet. Yes, kid-sized toilet. Do we need to say more?
No matter the age range of your brood, the upstairs Fernbank bathrooms (near Nature Quest) have everything you need. From a nursing nook with a comfie glider to a set of toddler books and a sturdy step stool, taking all your kids to the bathroom here is as easy as home. Actually easier, because your bathroom isn’t this roomy.

Although the toilets are all standard size (which is a little disappointing, given the location), the low sinks make up for it. Plus, they’re clean, and the quartz counter is purplish and sparkly. What toddler doesn’t like a sparkly bathroom?
It’s not always the cleanest bathroom (hey, it is home to a bunch of animals), but the zoo kid bathrooms have one feature that makes up for a lot: not just kid-sized toilets, but brightly colored kid-sized toilets. Yes, your picky toddler can choose the color where she wants to place her pee: blue, red or yellow. Lines are longest for the red potty, but that’s ok — it’s worth the wait. There’s also a built-in step for the sink that should forestall handwashing battles.
