Callahead Hits A Home Run With The Purple Potty
It’s that time of year again. The sun is shining, the bees are buzzing, the evening breezes are warm, and the call of the local fair brings thousands of families together to celebrate. Eat cotton candy. Ride the rides. Stroll the boardwalk.
And try to make your kid use the disgusting, smelly, dank-and-poopy, adult-sized porta-potties provided by the county.
But fear not, harried parent, if you live near New York City, for help is on the way. Local portable toilet company Callahead has made porta-potty history and developed a children’s-based portable toilet: Introducing the Purple Potty.
The Purple Potty, as named by Callahead, was designed by some playful mad genius who thought of it all. The toilet’s opening is smaller than normal, so Junior doesn’t fall into the murky abyss. There is a step stool built into the frame of the device, too, so he doesn’t have to be lifted onto the seat or worry about how he’s going to get down on his own. The toilet seat is ingeniously placed in one of the corners of the structure, giving Junior a little more room to pull up his ‘Roos and Oshkosh overalls. Seat covers and antibacterial soap are placed at kid level, as is the sink, which holds an impressive 60 gallons of fresh water (because there's no fun in washing one's hands unless there's enough water to splash all over the place). In fact, everything about this little purple gem is smaller with the exception of floor space, including the height: whereas regular porta-potties are over seven-and-a-half feet in height, the Purple Potty is six-and-a-half feet in height. It’s a miniature shitter for miniature shitters.
Yet with all the wonderful features these porta-potty geniuses provide in the Purple Potty, the most noticeable is held within its appearance: these tiny crappers are as purple as hell. I mean purple. And little fluorescent hand and footprints are peppered on the outside, because, well, I don’t know. How the hell did a kid get his feet five feet in the air, anyway? They look cute, though, and cute is important. The Callahead people even offer to tie balloons to the darned things. Furthermore, I suspect that one of the engineers was afraid of the dark as a child, because they are equipped with fun rope lighting on the inside ... lest it get dark and the monsters come out. Just lookit' at how cute it is.
Seriously, why has no one ever thought of this before?
Hats off to Callahead’s CEO Charles Howard for a jobby well done. I can only suspect that he is a closet Captain Underpants fan!
