(Pocket-lint) - The iPotty for iPad is, as the name suggests, a potty for toilet training which - wait for it - has a built-in stand for the Apple iPad 2 and iPad 3rd and 4th-generation models.

In what has to be one of the more random accessories for the Apple tablet, the new plastic potty will cost $39.99 when it goes on sale in the US in the next few months. 

As far as potties go, the iPotty for iPad will come with an easy-to-clean and removable inner potty bowl, potty seat and splashguard, as well as a clip-on cover that converts the potty to a child activity seat for use at any time. 

As for the iPad, it clips into an adjustable stand that has a clear protector so you don't get stuff you don't want on your the device, and the ability to rotate the iPad between horizontal and vertical views. You can also adjust the angle of the iPad as well as remove it completely if you need to take it away. Bad baby.

The makers, CTA Digital, say the potty is good for toddlers from six months to three years. 

When the Apple marketing bods said using the iPad was like child's play, we don't think they had this in mind.
