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.


The cute play tent comes with a set of poles to build the tent and a comfy nonslip mat for playing, reading, or taking a nap.

Promising review: "My children love this play tent (ages 6, 4, and 2) and I don't mind it sitting in my house because it's all cream and pretty to look at. Fits my house decor and is cute! Was easy to assemble and fairly sturdy. The size is generous, too. I really like how the canvas tucks under the base to keep it in place." —Outdoor E.

Get it from Amazon for $69.99.

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?,

Promising review: "I’ve been wanting this rug from the brand name for over a year now but I couldn’t justify spending $200 on a child’s rug. I was so happy I found this one, it looks exactly the same for less than half the price! I was even more surprised when it came, it’s incredibly soft and fluffy. I didn’t even have to put a rug pad under it because it is so plush. I got the pink and white, which is a beautiful muted blush color and the white lettering stands out perfectly. I am very happy with this purchase. I have not washed It yet, but from the other reviews it seems pretty straightforward. I will probably have to hang dry just out of fear of ruining it. Overall, great purchase and I will definitely recommend this next time somebody wants to buy that designer rug." —Paige

Get it from Amazon for $65.88 (available in two sizes and in four colors).

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.


Promising review: "Absolutely love this wall hanging! It’s so beautiful and it ties my kids playroom perfectly together!" —Kandace

Promising review: "So happy with this purchase! Can be used as just a rustic decor item, in a child’s room for drawings, or put it to use writing sweet notes around your house for your loved ones to find! I was impressed by how sturdy the bracketing and paper is. Definitely would buy again, but I think the large roll might last me forever. I bought the 12-inch." —Joyce Hales
