I say that is a good sign he understands the process of using toilet and on his way to being ready himself.  Next time Pinocchio goes to potty, request that he tries as well to show pinocchio how he is a big boy too.

Quoting Pna1Dra6on:

Sure why not.  My kids learned at 2. 

 Ask him, Does he want  "BIG - BOY UNDERWEAR"?

Let him ,pick them out.

  Buy PULL-UPS For BED TIME.

Have you tried any toilet training or were you just waiting for him to do it on his own? Generally, they are ready when they wake up dry more nights than they are wet AND when they can go a couple of hours being dry during the day. But that is still subjective to the child because some kids still wet the bed well in to elementary age but are still potty trained. If your child goes to daycare they may require pull-ups until he is fully trained. In that case, take a week off of work and devote it to potty boot camp. Let him pick out some big boy undies and be prepared to clean up a lot of puddles. Always keep positive...VERY important. The first day or two may be rough but do not give up. They will always test your readiness and commitment to New things. I've potty trained two boys and both of mine were trained right after their 3rd bday. Once trained, they might start to slip up a few weeks down the road because it isn't new to them anymore and they aren't really thinking about it constantly being reminded. Do not put him in pull ups. Stay positive and remind him when you see the peeled dance going on. Kids at this age often hold urine because they don't want to waste precious play time going potty.

I'd say he's almost ready and has reached the concept of what he needs to do. Go along with him and let him lead you and teach you what he means and understands. Sometimes what we think is developed in their minds in a different way. Its like the both of you speaking two different languages. Let him lead and you might be surprised at how smart he is.
