Ready for potty training but refusing to go on potty/wc

Mummy going potty but not DD - HELP needed please!

I have a child who is shy of 3yo by 1.5 months. She refuses the potty and the toilet but can go accident free all day - she just asks for a nappy. She has two older siblings who have had no problems going on the toilet, etc. She is ready to go nappy free but totally refuses. The reason I suspect is that she does get constipated a couple of times a month.. She has had a very sore incident a few times.. But she is clever and remembers things (like a nebuliser incident at GP's after which she cries blue murder when I go anywhere the clinic again).. I try to ram in as much fruit as possible, but like with everything, tastes go through cycles.. I could get the medicine for her from our GP but she isn't always constipated so am wondering if there are any other clever tips any of you would have. ....I'm so fed up of nappies after seven years...

We did a magazine in the bathroom with lots of stickers

Throw the mappies away or don't buy anymore - All gone!

Then she (or more importantly you) don't have the choice

She's not using these things because it interrupts her play - rather than not being able

We used a bag of m&m's and he had one for each wee on potty and two for a poo, worked a treat! He is 3 and we potty trained him about 7 weeks ago and he is completely dry now.
I brought one big pack (the type you get at the cinema) and he didn't eat them all, after a while they forget about them and just use potty.
Oh and we did use a little bribery of the peppa pig variety lol - he is the proud owner of the aeroplane which he was desperate for!

I already ran out of nappies yesterday and thought, that's it!! But here we go again.... Not sure she's ready for night time 'nappylessness' but certainly is dry during the day.. Is there a phobia they could develop for the loo??

@Astro, we read books! Also, I have bribed with sweets but it turns into hysterics when I mention the word 'toilet'....

I wrote a little book about the pop fairy coming and leaving gifts - I think there's a signaled book now damn should've publicized

Kids are usually dry overnight first

@Astro That's exactly what happened with my first DD!! She refused any pottytraining until she was ready to sleep through without a nappy!! She just said one day, that's it, I'm ready. We had two night time accidents that week and none since! You might be soooo right! This was way earlier than her sister though which got me wondering.. Maybe that's it.
