    Promising review: "Great bib for toddlers to carry their food. Leaves one hand for drinks and one empty hand." —Jennie from the city

    "Amazing idea! Love this bib! Super easy clean up and easy way for kids to snack. Only thing I would change would be the snap to hold the bib closed- it’s silicon like the bib is and can come apart more easily than if it was a metal snap." —BRJ

    Get it from Amazon for $12.81+ (available in two colors). 

    2. An elephant bath sprayer to help bath time go even smoother. It's a battery baby shower that releases a gentle stream of water for rinsing baby. Older kids will have fun with it, too.

    Promising review: "This has been great for washing our baby’s hair so that it keeps the water out of her eyes. She loves it. I imagine she’ll play with it when she’s older. Cute little design!" —SamD

    Get it from Target for $24.99 (available in five colors). 

    3. A mushroom pacifier and teether reviewers have given a whopping 17,000 5-star reviews! They say it contains ~magical~ soothing powers like no other paci out there. 

    Watch this parent test this out on their baby in this review on TikTok.

    Note: Please supervise your baby when using this, and make sure it's never flipped inside out. 

    Promising review: "MUST-HAVE FOR TEETHING BABY. We have tried so many teethers, and none of them gave my little guy relief, and he had trouble holding, etc. He loves to chew on his hand, so this is perfect as it has grips in the middle under the mushroom. He chews on it for teething and uses it as a pacifier. LOVE THESE!! I already ordered two more. 🤣" —Mark

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (available in five colors).

    4. A cup catcher ready to survive the tossing action from your fussiest baby. Think of it as a sippy cup bungee chord because it may leap off the high chair, but it won't hit the ground.

    Promising review: "These are fantastic for keeping my child from dropping her sippy cup over and over during meals. I'd recommend to any parent who just wants one thing to be easier. But isn't that all of us?" —Leigh Powers

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in six colors). 

    5. Contigo spill-proof tumbler pretty much the "holy grail" of toddler-approved sippy cups. Parents also marvel at the fact that it doesn't leak. So the kids can shake it, drop it, roll it, and whatever else they do to their belongings while their beverage remains inside the tumbler.

    Watch the spill-proof action in this video on TikTok.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical that these were ACTUALLY leak-proof. After all I have a toddler, they can make literally anything leak or spill. I have been through sooooo many cups trying to find ones that will not leave a puddle of water behind when it's left in its near permanent horizontal resting place on the floor or break or pour when my son inevitably bashes it onto the hardwood floor. The only liquid that comes out is what is left behind in the top of the straw after he drinks from it, which there is nothing you can do to even fix that. These are magnificent! They are easy to clean but then again I only use these for water so thicker liquid or drinks that tend to spoil may be more difficult to clean out. Overall this is the BEST cup I've come across when it comes to capacity, functionality, and most importantly ACTUALLY NOT LEAKING!"Ashley

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in 11 prints and two sizes).

    6. A truly fantastic diaper bag complete with a compartment that pulls out into a changing bed for baby. It also has a USB charging port, pretty much begging you to make it your must-have errand diaper bag. And, there's a canopy!

    Promising review: "I really like this as my diaper bag. It has more space then any others I’ve purchased. This is my fourth diaper bag and I really love it! The changing pad is very good and easy to use, plus it fits my 38-lb toddler." —Ramon natal

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in six colors). 

    7. A cereal and snack dispenser for easy breezy mornings. It's like a hotel complimentary breakfast only the people vacationing in your home won't be checking out by noon. 

    Watch this parent use the dispenser in this review video on TikTok

    Promising review: "We have three kids and a very small kitchen with very little cabinet/counter space. We used to keep our cereal boxes on top of our refrigerator, but I've been trying to de-clutter, and also come up with a solution for our kids to be able to get their own cereal in the mornings. THIS IS IT!!!! It looks great on our counter and we have very little space, so it fits just right! This has been the perfect solution to giving our kids the independence they need to get their own breakfast! It has been a lifesaver!!! Love it!!!" —tenle

    Get it from Amazon for $17.68+ (available in different quantities and three colors). 

    8. A kids' picnic table in case you're looking for a multifunctional surface that'll make mealtime, craft time, or homework that much easier. It folds flat for easy storing and sets up in no time. Got a play date? Just pop this table up indoors or outdoors, it can seat up to four children and is recommended for ages 3–8.

    9. A sleep-training alarm clock complete with a sound machine so your child knows when it's time to go to sleep, when it's almost time to wake up, and when it's time to actually get up and get out of bed. It's also handy for time-outs and naps.

    Watch this parent explain why they love this sleep trainer in this TikTok video

    Promising review: "LOVE this clock so much!!! We got it when my son hit some serious sleep disruptions shortly after turning 2. Along with adjusting his nap time, we taught him that when Mella is red, he has to stay in bed, and we have nap time set for an hour and a half. So after the time is up Mella turns green and he’s allowed to leave his room and go play. He still skips many naps, but now he stays in his room and plays quietly. He LOVES Mella. It took some training, but it has been a lifesaver because he gets quiet time regardless of whether or not he naps, and I get quiet time as well!!" —Brittany Agin

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99 (available in four colors).

    10. A nifty car seat buckle release tool because you love that the carseat buckle is so secure but you'd also like to be able to get your kid out of it, too. As a top tier aunt, I've bruised many a fingers trying to release my nieces and nephews from their carseat. With this little tool, you can save your fingers and your manicure, too.

    Promising review: "I got this because I have three kids, and since I have captain chairs, my 4-year-old sits in the third row. I can toss it back to him after I’ve parked or when I’m in the carpool line and he can unbuckle himself and then unbuckle his siblings and I don’t have to climb in the car. It’s GREAT! I also like how it doesn’t attach to the car seat like some similar products, and I can keep it up front while the car is moving. So much safer!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in five colors). 

    11. A snack spinner that will make snacks more fun and settle them down when you're on the go. Try this with your picky eaters, rotating the snacks might make them finally try strawberries.

    Promising review: "My 2-year-old loves it, he gets excited every time he pushes the button and sees it spin. He spins it grabs a piece of strawberry spins it again grabs a blueberry keeps him entertained. It’s easy to clean and compact for easy on-the-go snacks. Great product!" —Noe G.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95 (available in three colors).

    12. A foldable playground, which is pretty much the coolest thing ever. Even if you have a small space, you'll still have just enough room for this play structure that can be used both indoors and outdoors. When you're done, just fold it up and slide it way. 

    Watch how this dad sets up and takes down the playground in seconds in video on TikTok

    Promising review: "I couldn’t be happier with this play set! My son is 18-months-old and it is perfect for his age and up. I know some reviews complained that it was to0 small but if you are getting it for a younger child it’s perfect. I have limited space so the fact that it can fold up and be stored is what sold me on it. The quality is great, I worried with it being a fold up that it might now be sturdy but it is. It folds up easy and can easy be stored out of the way. I highly recommend!" —Nikki

    Get it from Amazon for $179.99 (available in two styles). 

    13. A foldable indoor slide to bring the playground to you when it's too cold to go outside. This slide pops up in minutes and can withstand a group of Rugrats for hours of play. Afterward, just pop it back down for easy storing.

    Promising review: "We are so happy with this slide. My almost-3-year-old is VERY rough and this slide still looks in the same condition as when I first opened it. It is very sturdy and durable but easy to fold and take on the go or store. This is going to be perfect to bring to my extended family’s house or for play dates. It provides a lot of entertainment so far. We had three toddlers ages 1 to 3 years old playing at once, taking turns, and it really impressed. My daughter spilt her milk on it at one point and it wiped away beautifully. It is the perfect indoor slide!" —John

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in two styles).

    14. A sunscreen applicator for a mess-free way to get your kiddos protected from the sun.

    Promising review: "I wish I had invented this thing. It's so beyond genius. I no longer fight with my 2-year-old to get sunscreen on, and even better my 12-year-old prefers this to the spray so he wears it, too! The only complaint I have is that it does go on thinly, so I don't always feel confident that I got everywhere without further rubbing on my kid, but overall it does a fantastic job. It's pleasant enough for them that I go a little overboard with coverage to make myself feel better. So far I've used with two different types of sunscreen and both work well." —BMF

    Get it from Amazon for $22.98 (available in four colors). 

    15. A travel urinal perfect for long car rides or on days when you're trying to get all of your errands done before the first drop of rain, but there's no toilet (or empty fast food cup) in sight. 😬

    Promising review: "I love this travel urinal. My son often has to pee when we are out running errands, and it’s not always easy to get to a restroom. I have two young boys; it’s hard to get them in and out of the car to use the restroom. This also helps because in the age of COVID-19 I’m not very comfortable having my kids use public restrooms. If I can avoid it I will, and this makes it possible. Often I’ve used sippy cups, water bottles, or whatever I could find for my son to pee in. This makes it so much easier. It’s also cute so my son actually wants to use it and it doesn’t spill. It could be tipped upside down and it won’t come out. This is a great product. I would buy it again." —Emily

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in two styles and four colors).

    16. An Oogiebear nose and ear cleaner you can use to safely and gently clean out baby's nose and ears without hurting them. The rubber scoop and loop gently loosens the wax and boogers, making it easy to remove.

    Promising review: "Must have! This thing is amazing, it works very well for us. Good length and it's soft/firm. I was able to gently scoop my 4-month-old's ear wax and pick out her sticky, crusty boogers. She enjoys being clean so she sat/laid down very still for us. I would definitely buy this for a baby shower gift and definitely recommend to anyone." —P. T.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    17. CeraVe moisturizing cream parents say works wonders on their kids' eczema, keeping their skin moisturized and their flare-ups at bay.

    I can personally attest to how amazing CeraVe is for kids with eczema flare-ups. My nephew had really bad eczema on his cheeks and we tried everything, CeraVe was the only thing that gave huge results in such a small amount of time. It's fragrance and paraben-free, and can be used on all kids, not just kids with extremely dry skin. 

    Watch a before and after video on TikTok

    Promising review: "We tried so many creams marketed for eczema (most containing oatmeal) and they all made my baby's eczema worse. We were desperate to find a cream that would help and stumbled upon this cream. It did wonders clearing up his eczema and as long as we use it daily it keeps it from flaring up again, this is glycerin-based and doesn't contain oatmeal." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in two sizes).

    18. A compact 2-in-1 table for crafts and building. One side is a desk surface for homework and crafts while the other side is made specifically for building Legos. And, there are drawers where you can store their supplies and Lego pieces.

    Promising review: "My boys love it, they play together and build all sorts of things. It works with Lego products, meaning DUPLO Legos do fit without problem. Table is sturdy and very well made. The drawers make it convenient to store Legos or other items so the kids can play in a small area and not have to run around trying to find their Legos. That being said it saves your feet. Get it for any Lego youngsters out there, they'll love it." —TrippyLippy

    Get it from Amazon for $112.59 (available in three colors).

    19. A diaper cream spatula applicator to keep that greasy, sticky, diaper cream paste out of your nails.

    Promising review: "Yes, it’s weird. I laughed (to myself) when I got one as a baby gift. Then my baby got her first rash and after wrestling a diaper closed with fingers covered in diaper cream I remembered this and oh boy what a lifesaver. It applies cream evenly and wipes clean. I now have two and will probably buy a third for the diaper bag. It’s also nice for people who have sensory issues or are new to diaper-changing. Yes it’s weird, but it’s also crazy useful." —jp

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (available in five colors).

    20. A food and juice box holder because we know all too well that one mild squeeze will send that food or juice flying out onto the floor. This holder helps your tiny human feed themselves without making a mess. They get to keep their independence and you get to keep your floors and your baby clean.

    Promising review: "BEST THINGS EVER!! My little one is 10m old and a little miss independent. She HATES when I have to help feed her. She LOVES the applesauce pouches, but always squeezes them and makes the biggest mess ever! I thought these would be worth a shot, I was right!! Works awesome for her with juice boxes too! AND she's happy because mommy doesn't have to help!! I would definitely buy them again, and I told EVERYONE with littles how much they need to buy these!" —
