A disposable, inflatable, sanitary toilet seat cover which both prevents contact of a person with the surface of the seat and creates a restricted seat opening for use by a small child. A pair of preshaped vinyl or plastic layered sheets form a top and a bottom layer, secured to one another by welds, which welds are permanent and air-tight, to form an inflatable, generally U-shaped cover adapted in size and dimension to seat on the upper surface and over edges of a standard hard toilet seat. The top layer is preformed and dimensioned to be slightly larger in surface area than the bottom layer. Upon inflation, this added surface area results in a greater curvature of the upper surface of the cover than its lower surface with resultant bulging. A series of approximately parallel, spaced welds extend generally perpendicularly from near the peripheral weld across the width of the cover, whereby the top layer and the bottom layers are bonded to one another on their interior surfaces. The space between the welds define air-filled sections with a downward extending gripping lip to prevent lateral movement of the seat cover.
