Lillipad Toilet Squatting Platform

Squat on the loo its good for you!

Empty both bowel and bladder using the natural squatting position.

Supporting toilet squatters since 1991

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

For a true squat posture

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 ensure 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 assists a beneficial squat-like position for less flexible people.

Squatting straightens our internal pipes releasing waste to flow.
True 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 New Zealand using plywood made from local, sustainably grown pine and finished with a durable, certified ‘toy safe’ oil/varnish for decades of daily use.

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

I have bought 2 Lillipads and given one to my daughter. They are perfect, and I really admire the care, craftsmanship and aesthetic.

Thanks for sending the Lillipad promptly. It arrived in good condition. Your wood work is excellent. It assembled well. I am impressed with its design and sturdiness. It's a cut above what I'm used to seeing. It exceeded my expectations. Thanks again,
