I would certainly recommend this bare bones toilet. It does exactly what you need it to do. She had a "fancy" potty, but she was more interested in playing with it than pottying. We have 4 of these potties, for each bathroom and her room, as well as on to take to grandma's house or when she spends the night with her cousins. She is able to completely go to the bathroom by herself with this potty, because she is able to reach it, and its a breeze to clean also. No parts to get all messy. For as little as they cost, its also easy to have multiple potties all over the house. It has really helped her to have a potty right at her access.
