Recently word got around the ManPossible office that there was a mystical object by the name of Squatty Potty captivating the bottomless curiosity of mankind. Being the adventurous heroes we are, the ManPossible team quickly assembled an independent unit to unravel the mystery behind this craze. With a little help from our trusty office dog, Marlo, our team of officially unofficial scientists were able to debunk the technology and replicate this asstronomical similar experience. You can read more about that particular asschievement here.
While our bootleg Squatty Potty did seemed functional, the trouble of having our office dog following everyone into the restroom is probably a dog overtime HR violation. Lucky for us, our friends over at Squatty Potty are animal lovers. In a matter of weeks, we had two Squatty Potties delivered to us!
This article is ManPossible’s official review of the Squatty Potty ECCO. Yes folks, this is the real deal!
If we were allowed only one word to describe the outward appearance of the Squatty Potty ECCO, then that word would have to be, Simplicity. A single look at the product is enough for anyone to scratch their heads and ask himself, “Now, why didn’t I think of that?” Made entirely of plastic, this single-piece “U” shaped stool sports a pure white coat to give a simple look of elegance to compliment your throne.
The ECCO comes in two versions differentiated by height: 7” and 9”. Depending on the type of setup you have at home, the two sizes should fit just about most standard toilets. In addition to the height, Squatty Potty is known for their patented “U” shape design, which allows the item to slide seamlessly underneath the toilet when not in use. As clever as the design is, some of us did find the overall size of the ECCO to be a bit large and inconvenient for regular bathroom usage. Of course, this is more subjective as each individual’s preference and toilet layout is different.
Of course, ManPossible likes to keep it real with our readers. As much as we enjoyed the easy come easy go experience, there were some “issues” (some good and some bad). First off, because of the clean white exterior, the ECCO is prone to getting dirty. It doesn’t matter if you go bare feet or wear shoes, you will find smudges of dirt or shoe marks across the top of the stool. Sure you can simply rinse or wipe it off, but be prepared to clean the thing just about as often as you take a >>>>>.
Our second and more important (personal) issue is the overall design of the item. The setup of the ECCO Squatty Potty is not meant for users who like to dwell a significant amount of time on the throne. Because the product is designed to expedite your “business”, in our experiment, we found the prolonged elevation of the knee in a squatting position often resulted in numbing of the lower body. So if you ever find yourself on a Squatty Potty, be sure to leave your laptops, notebooks, and TV behind… just get to “business”.
Let us be completely candid and cut out the bullshit. This product WORKS! Don’t let the rainbows and unicorn overwhelm you. The idea is simple; humans were meant to perform this beautiful act via an equally beautiful method: squatting. What Squatty Potty has done is take people’s traditional practices and apply it in our modern era.
More often than not, we found ourselves relying on this amazing product for those much rougher days. All you need to do is unzip, elevate, and let gravity do its thang!
For those dealing with chronicle constipation, look no further… With Squatty Potty, you’ll be sure to turn that RBF (Resting Bitch Face) into a beautiful smile. As a matter of fact, we at ManPossible believe one of the Squatty Potty products could be a pretty awesome gift for your loved ones for the holiday; the ECCO model can be yours for only $33.
