1. A neutral play tent that'll blend into any decor and comes with all the fixin's, so the kiddos can have their own ~glamping~ experience, whenever they need a little pretend getaway.

2. A Pottery Barn dupe round rug to make any room feel luxe without spending nearly $200. Who knew teaching the ABC's could look très chic?

3. A nature-inspired tree trunk stool that looks so realistic no one will believe ~it's actually a storage bin in disguise~. Plus, it can hold kids or adults up to 220 lbs. Are you as *stumped* as I am by this clever invention?

Promising review: "I was very pleased with this stool. It actually looks very good in person, just like the picture. Goes great with my son's tree house theme in playroom. He and his older cousins use it for a table more than they do to sit on, because it does sit up pretty tall (and he's over 3-ft tall). It stores A LOT, right now we have several Melissa and Doug dress up costumes in ours. It's also very sturdy as a stool, I can sit on it, and my son's very large dad can too without issue. However, the way you put it together is with a plastic ring in the top that is easy to take out, so if you have a young one who likes to take things apart like me, you'll be putting this back together frequently, which is annoying." —Olivia

Get it from Amazon for $28 (available in 15 styles).

4. A handmade moon phase garland to add a celestial vibe to your kiddo's space *and* to show them you love them to the moon and back.

5. A gray crochet fox basket that's ~wildly~ crushworthy. Hello, woodland themed playroom.

Promising review: "I was surprised by the quality. They are perfect; I tried to set up one up and put some Funkos on and it’s perfect!! Because they are clear it looks like the Funkos are floating in the air. I’m ordering more later. They are worth the price. Thanks!!" —Luisa

Promising review: "Absolutely worth the money. The set was a steal. We’re obsessed with my daughter's library corner (at least mom is). Also super easy to install, took me less than 45 mins to install (with all the measurements and all). No words but love love love. Definitely recommend!" —Princess Misay

10. A kraft paper roll display so you can handwrite a to-do list or a sweet note to make your little one's day. When you're done, the kid-friendly easy-tear bar lets you quickly dispose of old messages to create new ones.

11. A canvas growth chart so you can keep track of your munchkin's height (who is growing up waayyy too fast 😢). Reviewers love that it can be rolled up and stored away as a cute keepsake.

Promising review: "Use them for my daughter's play area and everybody loves them. We bought rechargeable batteries. One battery charge lasts at least three weeks so we don’t have to take the letters down overnight. We just leave them running." —Nina Redzovic

Get it from Amazon for $8.98 (available in letters A–Z and numbers 0–9).

17. A minimal foam play mat because kid-friendly floors don't have to be a total eyesore. Honestly, I wouldn't blame you for trading your trendy rug for this mat in ~grown-up~ areas.
