Tori Spelling, who will be making her long-awaited return to the world of 90210 this April, was on hand at the Helen Mills Theater in NYC today to play celebrity host at the Pull-Ups brand Potty Dance Party … which is an event that pairs parents and their toddlers at a dance event that is meant to help children learn potty training by congratulating them with their own Potty Dance Party … or something to that effect. Here are a few photos of Tori with her children Liam and Stella at today’s event along with information about this odd affair:
This year, nearly six million parents will begin potty training their toddlers, an exciting and sometimes intimidating milestone for many — and celebrity mom of two Tori Spelling, star of the reality series “Tori & Dean Home Sweet Hollywood” is no exception. To celebrate her almost 2-year-old son Liam’s potty training debut, and help families across the country say farewell to diapers, Tori has teamed up with Pull-Ups training pants to groove to the Potty Dance — the new toddler dance craze introduced by the Pull-Ups brand — to help motivate her son to success. “Liam is growing up so fast, including his growing interest in the potty,” said Spelling. “While as a mom it’s bittersweet to watch my little boy grow up, we want to applaud this big moment with an activity he’s already crazy for — dancing. I’ve partnered with the Pull-Ups brand to kick-off Liam’s potty training with a celebration I know he will love, and an activity I know will keep me positive, the Potty Dance.” Spelling [introduced] the Potty Dance to eager-to-boogie parents and toddlers at the Pull-Ups brand Potty Dance Party, a parent-tot dance bash held today from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Helen Mills Theater in New York City. Ready-to-celebrate families, and their ready-to-potty train tots, [were] invited to be among the first to learn the catchy Potty Dance moves and help congratulate their tots on becoming a Big Kid. Along with learning the dance, parents can discover other potty training resources, have a personal consultation with a Pull-Ups brand parenting expert and participate in fun activities — all designed to grow excitement around potty training for toddlers. “We know children need to be recognized for their success during potty training, which is the reason we created the Pull-Ups brand Potty Dance,” said Bob Thibault, President, Kimberly-Clark North American Personal Care. “We are thrilled to partner with Tori, a celebrity mom who remains hands-on as she openly encounters the daily adventures and realities of motherhood, to encourage parents to embrace potty training with their children.” The Pull-Ups brand recognizes parents can often be overwhelmed or unmotivated about potty training — even celebrity moms. The Potty Dance is designed to encourage and support tots during any stage of the potty training process by celebrating their achievements towards becoming a Big Kid. The step-by-step moves are easy for kids (and parents) to learn, so families can break into the dance no matter what potty training step they are on or milestone they have reached.
You know, a paying gig is a paying gig. Until Tori actually appears on TV again as Donna Martin, I suspect that the big endorsement deals will be few and far between … in these trying economic times, can we really fault her participating in an event like this? She does have the cute kids to work with … it’s not a totally bad idea. I may not have a toddler of my own and I may be fully potty trained (I swear) but if I were given the opportunity to watch Tori Spelling do the crossed legs, hopping back and forth I Gotta Pee dance I’d SO be there. Be honest … wouldn’t YOU be there, too? :)
