potty seat (or something) for boys

So DS is showing A LOT of interest in standing while peeing (he is 16m). He's been using a potty seat on the toilet since he was 8 months or so...(we EC part-time)
anyway I've done a bit of research on boy potty "seats" and am not sure if ANY look like they are a good idea...
I've seen the Peter Potty and Weeman potty but are there more?
He does have a simple Baby Bjorn potty (the little one) but I don't think his aim is all that good....

I am posting this in the EC forum too
ideas? TIA

Don't know about potty seats for boys who want to stand, but you could have him try sitting backward on the toilet if he's too short and not able to aim well. Sometimes just the novelty of facing the back of the toilet (like the big guys do) will satisfy a little guy until he gets a little taller. If you think it's just an aim thing, try a sturdy step for the height he needs and give him targets - like a couple of Cheerios tossed in the toilet - to aim at.

We have the Peter Potty. The boys like it. I'd say it's half & half used for peeing by my daycare boys. I like that it flushes & is contained. You can height adjust it or even hang it on the wall! It was worth the $40 I paid.

We have this one & the cup in front is good at catching the pee. My son loves it although it took us a bunch of tries to get him on it. I got it at one of the discount stores.
