Lillipad Toilet Squatting Platform

How to squat on the toilet.

Empty both bowel and bladder using the natural squatting position.


The Lillipad Squatting Platform makes your toilet more usable for you, your family and guests.


The Lillipad is designed to sit level with or lower than the rim of the toilet. It is available in short, tall and height adjustable models.
To aid comfort, the footpads slope forward and tilt slightly towards each other.


The Lillipad supports a true squat posture for the best bowel movements and an empty bladder.


The rim of the toilet can be used in conjunction with the Lillipad to raise the heels slightly, supporting an easy, narrower, squat.


The step on the Lillipad provides access for children, and assists a beneficial squat-like position. Perfect for those new to squatting looking to graduate to a proper, full squat.


When in position the toilet can still be used in the sitting posture. The Lillipad encourages healthy and hygienic squatting.


The separate Lillipad footstool provides access for children, and aids a beneficial squat-like position for less flexible people.

Squatting straightens our internal pipes releasing waste to flow.
Deep squatting is balanced and requires no props. Infants instinctively squat, it is the natural way we evolved to go!

The height adjustable Lillipad (above) has additional feet allowing it to change between the tall model and the short model height settings. The plywood feet store conveniently out of sight under the footpads when not in use.

The footpads on all models can be adjusted side to side to ensure a good fit around your toilet.


The tall Lillipad is 381 mm (15 in.) high, the short Lillipad is 323 mm (12 ¾ in.) high, and the Lillipad footstool is 203 mm (8 in.) high.

The Lillipad footstool is stable, strong and easy to clean. It also provides a step up to the hand basin for kids.

All the Lillipads are proudly made in Aotearoa /New Zealand, using plywood made from sustainably grown NZ pine. We apply a durable oil/varnish which is certified “toy safe”. This is easy to clean, and can be reapplied to give you decades of daily use.

The first Lillipad was made in 1991 after using the squat toilets while traveling through Asia.
Making something helpful motivates us, as does wonderful customer feedback, and a certainty that squatting is the way to go!

The Lillipad transformed our lives. As we used to squat on the toilet in India it was always hard for me to sit instead of squat. Now, I use Lillipad every day.  Even more importantly, my daughter (10yrs old) is into the habit of squatting daily on the toilet which is very good.

So happy with the Lillipad, it's a fantastic product. My bladder issues have improved significantly and very quickly, with no more straining to feel like I'm finished. I got the tall model and I'd like to purchase a second one for my other bathroom.

As you know, I have a Squatty Potty. Well, I prefer the Lillipad to the Squatty Potty by a significant margin. The Lillipad is actually easier to get situated on initially. But, its real advantage is that it allows for a much more complete squatting posture. That's what I was hoping would be true, and it is. So, functionally, the nod goes to the Lillipad. It's not even close. Obviously, the SP is a lot cheaper. But, that doesn't really count for much since the thing doesn't function as effectively. The SP doesn't require any assembly either, but that also is not a big deal in my book. So, I'm very pleased that you guys invented this device. I also appreciate the Lillipad's careful design and nice workmanship. Also, it is very stable, that’s no small thing either. Again, thanks very much for the nice product. Much appreciated.
