The cache is located not terribly far off the Ellicott Creek trailway. A short description from wnyrin.com:
Ellicott Creek Bike Path is a town owned developed park in the Town of Amherst in Erie County, a 7.2 mile bike-way that starts on North Forest Road near the corner of Maple Road and goes to Ellicott Creek Park in the Town of Tonawanda .

Park at N42 59.607 W078 45.618 (Mapquest 42.9934,-78.7603). The cache is a large (2 gallon) Rubbermaid container, and, you guessed it, contains a talking toilet.

The cache is huge, larger than a .50 cal box, so the Talking Toilet cache is extremely Travel Bug Friendly.

The talking toilet was a gift given to me by my dear Mother-in-law, which sat on a shelf unopened for I'm guessing over two years. But no more; Since I've decided I can hide it in the woods to let people find it, it's not my problem anymore.

THE TALKING TOILET IS EXTREMELY LOUD AND BOISTEROUS!! The screaming toilet may have been a more appropriate name. You may want to muffle the speaker, on the bottom.

Feel free to trade items for sacrifice to this pint-sized porcelain God, but the only original contents are the toilet itself, and a log book.

The talking toilet is also a functioning liquid soap dispenser, and is filled with Purell brand soap (no water required, just rub it in). It would be unwise to leave the area without remembering to wash your hands.

After almost 3 years of caching, HB has finally found the amazing talking toilet! This was an excellent walk down the Amherst bike path. I last remember being here about two years ago DNF'ing on that pesky BEE cache. No, not that kind of BEE cache. Anyway, I found the cache quickly and admired the years worth of previous entries in the logbook. This cache is an oldie, almost 4 years! The toilet is still loud as ever. Now if only I knew what to do with my talking toilet...

Ahh...finally I was able to hear the wonderfully melodic tones of the Amherst's one and only Amazing Screeching Toilet. Hahaha. Imagine the confusion passer-bys would experience if they heard this magnificent creature’s squeal echoing from the middle of the woods. Man, I’d love to borrow that for a spooky night cache…haha.

Urk, this cache find has been a long time in the works as I’ve always heard great stories about this toilet (even seen it mentioned on the forums a few times) so when I knew we’d be up in the area today this cache was on the to-do list. The hike in was mostly a bushwhacking-free expedition. The trails here are fantastic, and it was pretty sweet exploring them for the first time. Once we got near the cache we struggled to find the best way in. We didn’t see legit trails leading in, but that certainly does it mean it wasn’t there with a big neon sign point us the way.

So we walked a little bit farther and walked along the creek in. This wasn’t too bad, and pretty soon we were at the cache site. Great area in what pretty much resembles a jungle. A perfect spot to let the toilet unleash it’s sensible advice unto the world. Thanks for one of the more unique caches in WNY, and for sharing this porcelain prophet with us worthy geo-folks. Haha.

This cache was a double bonus for me...

Found the talking toilet with no problem - it was definitely loud! Lots of mosquitoes around and lots of nettles stuck to my socks (of course I had to take the hard way in) :)

On the way back to the car (looking foran easier way), I came across bunches of giant puffballs! It's one thing to read about them in a field guide, but this is the first time I've actually seen them growing in the wild... they are *huge*!

Finding the mushrooms was just as excitingas finding the cache :) I wish I had brought my camera...

I think there were more bugs on the trail than there were off it! I began looking in the wrong place because I didn't want to believe my GPS. Eventually I listened to it and found it easily. Coordinates right on. Of course, I had to push the button too. Loud!! Thanks for the cache.

Talking toilet and golden spikes.
Another FUN find for the Cayuga Crew.
Found with minimal difficulty. Toilet is still talking. We did note that the log was damp as ziplock was split on a corner. Placed log in a new smaller ziplock. Took the golden spike. The youngest crew member can't resist them. Bushwhachked out to the bridge as the walking trails were iced over and provided poor footing

Thanks Urkel for yet another QUALITY HIDE!!!
The toilet is still talking, or should I say screaming, but is out of hand cleaner.
Traded a coin purse for the pkg of kleenex that was in the cache.

Found the "toilet" with no problem. Had to listen to it. Fortunately, no one was in the area. Took nothing, left nothing.

MrMom, the Goo and I put aside a little time on a school night to come find this one. Although I know the neighborhood well from my High School days I had never been on this section of the bike path before. This was not you're average bike path cache...very well done. By the way...the Goo is much louder than the toilet!
