With either of those I'd guess one of the most important issues to get straight is the availability of replacement bags.

I like the look of the buckets with the toilet seat on, but my kids are old enough to be left while I pop to the toilet block, or to wake me up to walk with them  :)

OOOOOh Annie just what you were talking about, very affordable and space saving!
 
Lind - well done finding this. I think go for it or a kampa khazi approx same price but more space taken up in car http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/kampa-khazi-portable-chemical-toilet-/251282605138?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item3a819c4452

Or bucket? ice cream tub?

I think if for a child in the night, anything a child is comfortable using, but best to know before the 1.30 am emergency call or there could be some accidents  :)

Kampa Khazi for me - upgraded from bucket with a lid last year! 

Noooooooooooooooo to 1 am, 3 am trips to toilet for daughter or leaving her alone while I go.  And nooooooooooooooo to waking up in the morning, needing a wee and having the time to get myself into a state that doesnt frighten the wildlife ........... :-[

I have just ordered one of these and a cover for it.

http://www.leisureoutlet.com/caravans-and-motorhomes/Portable-Toilets/Sunncamp-Lulu-Tourlet-Portable-Toilet.html

It is just for nighttime use and is basically a bucket with a seat and a lid.

Been doing a bit of research and need to decide whether to go for emptying and rinsing in the mornings or the bin liner and cat litter approach!!!  :o

Tried the bin liner/cat litter approach - gets all twangled up and messy.

Bit of dettol/dettox in the empty bucket keeps it smelling fresh - empty and rinse, add bit of dettol and repeat. 

Job done!

I used a Kampa Khazi for a few trips but if you have the space for one in the car might as well get a proper chemical camping toilet Clean easy to use and more important little ones cant knock them over in the middle of the night. Check ebay and local adds for second hand one if cant afford a new one well worth the money
on another planet or so I'm told

I vote for bog in a bag. Worked brilliantly for me and my littlies when camping at the peaks.
Light weight and simple to use. Best of all it now lives in boot of car with spare bag incase emergency toilet is needed on days out or long journeys for my daughter. The boys just get use of any empty drinks bottle to hand as boys come supplied with their own spout! lol
