Lillipad is taking a sabbatical : ) We have been volunteering in Vanuatu for a year and will be returning in April 2024.
The Lillipads are unavailable until February 2024 at the earliest. Please email via the contact boxes below with your country and request.
View the 8 minute video and decide if you (or your woodworker) have the basic tools and materials necessary to make the Lillipad Squat Stool. Then down load the plans that the video supplements.
At US$8 they are a great option. Available on the ‘D.I.Y. Plans’ page

To ensure a great fit, the Lillipad Squatting Platform has adjustable footpads, and is available in 330 mm (13 in.), 380 mm (15 in.), and 430 mm heights.
The Lillipad is designed to sit level with or lower than the rim of the toilet (see photos below). The footpads slope forward, and tilt slightly towards each other for comfort.
The short Lillipad is 330 mm (13 in.) high, 555 mm (21¾ in.) wide, and 282 mm (11⅛ in.) deep.
The tall Lillipad is 380 mm (15 in.) high, 575 mm (22¾ in.) wide, and 285 mm (11¼ in.) deep.
The shorter height adjustable Lillipad has two height settings 380 mm (15 in.) high and 330 mm (13 in.) high.
The taller height adjustable Lillipad has two height settings 380 mm (15 in.) high and 430 mm (17 in.) high.
To order the best Lillipad for your toilet — lift the toilet seat and measure from floor level to the porcelain rim of the toilet.
If the measurement is greater than 330 mm (13 in.) but less than 380 mm (15 in.) choose the short Lillipad.
If the measurement is greater than or equal to 380 mm (15 in.) choose the tall Lillipad.
If the measurement is greater than or equal to 430 mm (17 in.) choose the taller height adjustable Lillipad.
We recommend one of the height adjustable Lillipads — for more squatting options, if you shift house often, or are buying for a friend.

Please note — the footstool does not facilitate the full squatting position, if you are looking to take the next step — to the squat position — then you will require a Lillipad Squatting Platform. The Lillipad Squatting Platform is durable, functional, and attractive, our reviews page is full of quotes from very happy customers. It is not, however, a made-to-measure solution for your particular squatting posture or your toilet’s location and shape. For a made-to-measure solution — we recommend the DIY plans available on this website.

You can help to promote squatting by telling your friends, or link to this website.

We recommend people practice the squat position before they purchase, and are prepared to give squatting on the Lillipad a few weeks to get used to. The video on the home page of this website shows how to easily get on and off the Lillipad.

Our payment method is via PayPal, an online payment service which uses the latest anti-fraud technology, we never see your bank or credit card numbers.
People prone to dizziness or loss of balance should hold onto a secure handle or chair placed in front of the toilet when using the Lillipad Squatting Platform.
The Lillipad Squatting Platform and the Lillipad footstool are not guaranteed to prevent or cure any particular ailment. Information in this website should not be a substitute for qualified medical advice.
Sitting with your feet up is squat-like but it is not true squatting, judge for yourself from the photos. Squatting is a graceful yoga pose achievable without props. A recent 2010 Japanese medical study, titled “Influence of body position on defecation” concluded, “The greater the hip flexion achieved by squatting the straighter the recto-anal canal will be, and accordingly, less strain will be required for defecation.”
If you would like the option of both short (13 in.) and tall (15 in.) settings choose the shorter height adjustable Lillipad.
