    "I would give it 10 stars if I could."

Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. The Honest Company conditioning detangler with 30,000 5-star reviews (!!!) that works wonders on all hair types and leaves tresses smelling like orange Creamsicle. Just a few spritzes and....voila...no more knots! I mean, just look at how this stuff untangled this reviewer's "rat's nest."

    amazon.com

    BTW, it's not just for kids, adults love it too and say it detangles and softens straight and curly (including 4a–4c) hair!

    Promising review: "We have tried it all and read a ton of reviews before settling on this one. Brushing after a shower has always been a dreaded task but not anymore. My daughter who has long naturally curly hair brushed right through it and her hair is left feeling soft and beautiful! I would give this product 10 stars if I could!!"—jennalynn365

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    2. And a Revlon hot air brush because you absolutely despise how long it takes to blow-dry and style your mane. This tool will give you a sleek, shiny salon-quality blowout in minutes so you can use that extra time to hide in the bathroom from your kids (Just kidding!)

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Reviewers swear this magical tool works on all hair types, whether straight, wavy or curly (from 3a–4c hair).

    Promising review: "If I could give this product 10 stars, I would. I have been heat styling my hair once every other day for the past 12–14 years and for almost all of that time, that entailed drying it with a hair dryer first, then straightening it with a flat iron. I finally ended up buying this product to try after an overwhelming endorsement from a shopping group I belong to and it is a GAME-CHANGER. The thing I like the most about it is that it feels like it does significantly less damage to my hair than my usual method of styling. It does a better job turning out fresh looking, bouncy hair in a shorter time than even my best hair day used to be with the hair dryer and straightener. Even my 13-year-old daughter, who has very fine, flat hair was able to get some wave and volume using this. We both love it, and she can do it to herself with no trouble. Stop considering it and buy this thing right now." —Jen Em

    3. A leakproof bento box with five compartments so you can finally pack the healthy, perfectly portioned lunches you've seen all over Instagram.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    It's hard for me to overstate just how much I love this lunch box for my preschooler. Features include: Easy to open and close latches for little hands, leak-proof technology to prevent messes, rubber-coated edges to stand up to falls and drops. Plus, it's microwave and dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "Love this! Would give 10 stars if I had the option. Originally I was hesitant because of the price but I wanted another option to ziplock bags and Tupperware without dividers. Now that I have used this, I know the investment was worth it! It truly is leak proof and easy to clean. It’s great for portion control, encouraging different kinds of foods and fine motor skills. Highly recommend this to all parents!"—Harrison Joling

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in three colors).

    4. A pack of Melissa & Doug Reusable Water-Reveal Activity Pads aka a *godsend* in a car, plane, or restaurant. Just fill the pen with water and watch the kiddos color ~over and over.~ Who knew you could enjoy glass of wine without fearing a crayon explosion?

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love the brand and know it will give me quality products, but these are a 10 star product! They are awesome! You fill up the water pen, hand to your kid, and let them be entertained with no mess, and no lost market caps etc. good designs, good educational component with numbers and ABC's, and a lot of fun. The little books dry, and they are ready very quickly to be painted with water again. My 19-month-old and my almost three-year-old are very into these. My older nieces and nephews love them too. The two pieces of the pen unscrew and screw together fairly easily, but not too easily. My little one likes to eat markers and crayons, but with these, if she takes it apart, she is only drinking water. Genius!"—truc

    Promising review: "Giving 5 stars is not enough! This is such a wonderful product. It is mess free and after it dries, the work book is back to new and the kids can "paint" all over again. This would be perfect for traveling."—Keri T.

    You'll be eternally grateful to catch a few extra ZZZs in the morning.

    Promising review: "OK, so I never write reviews, but this product has changed our lives. My 3-year-old son has always been a horrible sleeper but got worse when we transitioned him to a toddler bed. He was getting up anywhere between two to five times per night. We were exhausted and so was he. We were willing to try anything. Then I came across the Hatch Baby. I really didn’t think it would work but we were desperate. The key is consistency. We had a yellow light set as a getting ready for bed with soft music and then we used a red light with the rain setting for night time. My son loved it in the morning when the green light would come on. He would run in our room and say, "It’s time to wake up, the birds are chirping." The first week was hit and miss. We just kept saying if it’s the red light you must stay in bed. Then it happened.....the seventh night he didn’t get up. I thought maybe it was a fluke....nope. He hasn’t gotten up once since then. This product has seriously changed our lives. We are all finally getting some much needed sleep. My son is much happier and less moody. Please do not hesitate to buy this product if you need your little one to get more sleep. I would give it 10 stars if I could!!!Julia Platt

    Just fill with warm water, plop in and let the fizzing action work its magic (no scrubbing required!).

    Promising review: "These are great! I cannot say enough great things about them. My yeti was Nasty. I plopped one in, let it sit over night and it looks like brand-new. I also use them in my glass water bottles to clean them out. I got some for my son as he drinks protein shakes on the regular and his shakers are funky too. But after one of these they are clean and ready to go. I would give 10 stars if I could."—Amy Brady

    9. A game-changing diaper rash spray so your fingernails are never victimized again by that greasy, sticky paste. Reviewers say this mist ~works wonders~ on sore baby bottoms.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this product and wish I could give it more stars! It's so easy to use, definitely worth the price. I used to use gloves to spread diaper cream because I didn't want it under my nails. Now, I just spray and done."—Shannon

    Promising review: "🙌🏼🙌🏼This is the holy grail of diaper cream! So easy, I wish I could give it 10 stars."—Courtney Burch

    10. A nonslip portable potty seat perfect for families on the go that won't slip and slide under a wiggly child and ~folds so compact,~ you can practically fit it into a pocket.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I wish I could give this a 6-star rating. I purchased an in-store circular folding potty reducer, and it was useless. Slipped all over the toilet seat, and made my son afraid he was going to fall in. This reducer is a game-changer. It fits every public toilet we've tried and sits securely on the toilet. I'm planning to get another for my husband's truck, and this is definitely my new favorite baby shower gift."—mchmeh

    Get it from Amazon for $14.76+ (available in three colors).

    11. Or a pack of six disposable urinals that'll save the day when you're on on a road trip, camping or hiking and there are no restrooms nearby (or, eww, they're too gross to use).

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "We just traveled across states and visited places with some gross porto-potties. This product worked great for my little girl who won't use them. She was even able to use them in the car. Such a great product!!!! I would give it 10 stars if I could. I am thankful for all the reviews as well, to make sure to put each one in a large Ziploc bag before traveling. That really helped us out to dispose of each one." —Dfam

    Get them from Amazon for $17.99.

    12. Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer with a convenient built-in sponge applicator to erase dark circles and puffiness because you can't remember the last time you had a full night of sleep *and* because you're tired of hearing "you look tired."

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I rarely give cosmetic products a five star review, but I would be happy to give this one six stars if I could. That's because this works so much better than any other under eye concealer I have tried, including those from department stores which cost a ton of money. The concealer is great — it covers well, hiding evidence of a sleepless night with ease. But it doesn't go on too strongly, making you look as if you are wearing a couple of crescents of beige paint under your eyes. The 'Age Rewinder' name is misleading: my twenty-year old-daughter grabbed it, and it worked as well on her youthfully-perfect skin as on my not-so-youthful skin. At less than $10, this is a bargain compared to all but the cheapest bottom-of-the-barrel cosmetics. It makes you look a whole lot more than $10 better, and comes in enough shades that many of us can share in this not-just-for-the-wrinkled treat." —K. Varraso

    Get it from Amazon for $5.86 (available in 18 shades).

    13. A splurge-worthy bumper car that'll make you, so, so jealous as your little Kardashian cruises around the living room looking a bit too smug.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "If I could give this item more stars I would. Bought this for my one-year-old grand-daughter. She LOVES it! REMOTE: love this idea so adults can control it. There's even a pause button so if the kids touch the controls on the car it doesn't move until you unpause It. It goes great up and down hills, always getting neighbors and people driving by asking where we got it from. We put the lights on at night while outside. Battery lasts a long time too. Highly recommend this item."—Jennifer

    Get it from Amazon for $169.96+ (available in 10 colors).

    14. An over the door shoe organizer so versatile you can use this bad boy to store your family's ever-growing collection of Crocs, water bottles, sneakers, squishmallows — you name it!

    amazon.com, amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "It’s the perfect product for EVERY home! I can’t get over how much space this saved in my closet. I have a very small closet in front of the house, not enough to store our mitts, hats and slippers. This is where I use this organizer. It literally fits everything and makes the closet itself so neat and tidy. 10 stars"—Lena

    Get it from Amazon for $8.97.

    15. An ~egg-ceptional~ rapid egg cooker to take the guesswork — and the dirty pans — out of your morning routine. No matter what type of eggs your ravenous teen requests (poached, hard-boiled, soft-boiled or scrambled) you can set it and forget it...until the timer goes off.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this on a whim because I need an easier way to add protein to my diet. Holy freaking crap...I wish I had one of these for years! I made my daughter eggs using the poached egg method but added more water so they wouldn't be so runny and she ate them in about five seconds. I then made myself dippy eggs (pictured) using the poaching trays and it is a game changer! No more messy pans, no lost egg whites, no flipping...all easy! You have to mess with the water level but once you find the right level I'd suggest just marking it on the little measuring cup for what works for you. It is super easy to clean. Idiot proof to use. And makes deliciously perfect eggs. 10 stars. I would buy this over and over again!" —Allycia Goodpaster

    16. A weighted blanket that'll encapsulate your restless sleeper in a deep, calming hug to help them fall asleep...and *stay* asleep.

    The blue weighted blanket in dinosaur print
    Amazon

    Promising review: "This blanket has been a godsend for my extremely restless toddler. I have probably the worst sleeping child on the planet and was at my wit's end. This blanket not only keeps him asleep but keeps him in his bed. Now I’m the one waking up constantly checking on him after the past few years of him waking up nonstop. I can not recommend enough and would give this item 10 stars if I could."—Nic

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in 17 prints and in four sizes and weights).

    17. Or a snuggly mermaid tale blanket to transport any Ariel-loving kids in your life to a tropical island so they can live out their ~mermazing fantasies.~

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Bonus: The rainbow glitter version comes with an adorable sleep mask.

    Promising review: "This was a Christmas gift for our 5-year-old. A new mermaid tail blanket was #1 on her list. This mermaid tail blanket is so much cooler than any other ones I have seen. She is over the moon about it. She loves that her feet can go down into the fins so she can walk around in it. It’s much bigger than I thought so she can sleep in it and will be able to for a long time. I am so happy with the purchase and would give more stars if I could! The sleeping mask was an extra bonus. Who knew a 5-year-old would love that so much?"—myki

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in sizes 18 months–12 years and in 13 colors).

    18. An electric toothbrush set with a rinse cup and a sand timer that worked some unicorn magic on my toddler (who haaaated brushing her teeth). Now, she not only *volunteers* twice a day but also rinses after. I'd call that a win win.

    The unicorn electric toothbrush with a rinse cup and sand timer
    Amazon

    Promising review: "My kids were so excited to receive these tooth brushes as a Christmas present from their Grandma, they all love using them and never complain about mom asking them to brush their teeth three times a day ! The toothbrush is super effective but gentle enough for my 2-year-old and the decorative designs are so fun for your child! The tooth brush is excellent and makes my mom life so much easier! I give 10 stars out of 10!! Love everything about Brusheez"—Joy Dudley

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in three styles).

    19. A set of packing cubes perfect for keeping everyone's clothes separate, organized and wrinkle-free on vacay. Say ~bon voyage~ to messy jumbled suitcases.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are unbelievable. Packed my granddaughter for England. She is going to school in England for five months. I packed all her clothes and had room left to put in two blankets, sheet set with mattress cover and her pillow. Until I started packing with these cubes she was going to have to purchase these items in England after she arrived. I still cannot believe what we were able to pack and stay within the weight limit for international flights. AND she will be able to take these cubes right out of the suitcase and put in her allotted dresser space and find what she needs on a daily basis. For goodness sake, if you are traveling, purchase these cubes. You will not be sorry. If I could rate these as a 10-star I would!!!"—S. J.

    A set of three reusable ice packs
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I would give these cooler/ice packs 10+ STARS if possible!!! These are the best ice packs I have ever owned and I am 68 yrs old. They stay super cold all day long. I use two in my son's Igloo lunch bag and he complains his sandwiches are almost frozen when he has lunch. They take up very little room and lay flat. The packs arrive empty and you add water to activate them. You only need to do this once. So far I have only activated two of them and have used them everyday for the past six months. No holes, no leaks. Wish I had discovered these years ago! I highly, highly recommend!!!"—Eric W.

    22. A TubShroom to catch the absurd amount of hair shed by your human or fur babies — and to save you the frustration of standing in ankle-deep water to shower because your drain is clogged *again.*

    The tub drain hair catcher
    Amazon

    Promising review: "Cleaning out the tub drain was something I despised, but was forced to do since my daughter and I both have long hair and both shed about as much as our dog. It was a long disgusting process which included having to take the drain apart and use a small drain snake with a velcro-type end on it. It was always so gross to pull out all the slimy hair and soap scum that had accumulated every few days. Then this little thing popped up during a Lightning Deal. I took off my drain cover and popped it in place. It fit perfectly. Then the family showered as usual. The drain worked fine. Water flowed right under the 'mushroom cap' taking with it all hair that escaped our bodies along with it. The Tubshroom caught all the hair. After two days, I pulled it out to see if it worked! DID IT EVER!! It has been invaluable when it comes to washing the dog! No more clogged drains and standing water. All I have to do is wipe/pull off the hair with a piece of paper towel and throw it in the trash. Couldn't believe it could be so simple!! No more disassembling the drain, donning rubber gloves, running a snake down the drain, and pulling out globs of hair and gunk to clean the drain and get it flowing properly. When I notice it begins draining slowly, that is my hint to clean it. This thing is amazing. It has been such a time saver and made cleaning the tub a breeze! Wish I could give it 10 stars!!" —hickchick67

    23. An inflatable water mat with floating foam fishies to cast a mesmerizing spell on your bubba — until they temporarily forget that they, um, detest tummy time.

    Promising review: "I have never used any product of this type before...never knew something like this existed! Just finished a week at Disneyworld and Universal walking miles per day. Have always had problems with blisters on my feet after walking for miles in these types of parks, so I tried this on my feet bottoms, sides and tops of my toes....voila...this stuff really works!!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "If I could give 10 stars I would. The only stain remover I use! Not just on baby things, but adult clothes too! This stuff takes out anything. For example, my little girl spit blueberries literally all over a white Aden and Anais blanket (the thick expensive dream blanket). I was like, oh no, it's ruined :( BUT I just sprayed the spots (pretty much the entire blanket), soaked it in hot water, let it dry and then threw it in the wash. Badda bing, badda boom, not a single stain left. Nothing! Also, this was the only thing that worked to get out that bright orange baby blow outs on white onesies." —Kate

My son get really bad large acne breakouts that are really hard to heal. He put these on before bed and woke up to his large white pimples being gone! Like completely gone.

    Reviewer making three different kinds of lasagna in the pan: meat, vegetarian, and vegan
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've been making lasagna for my family for YEARS and always used a lasagna pan without sections. What a PAIN! It was harder to prepare, and when it came to cutting and serving..it was something I dreaded. Everyone wanted an 'end' that was crispy, Everyone wanted either a small piece or a large piece...so cutting it was impossible. With these trays, prep was a breeze, as was cutting any size because it didn't slip and slide. It was as easy as pie...and everyone got a 'crispy edge.' Cleaning was one, two three...NONSTICK! If there were 10 stars for this item, I would give it 10." —Linda Tesoroni

Everyone who has stainless should own this." —Danielle

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are the BEST baby spoons we’ve ever bought. My daughter loves food but when it comes to using a spoon she tends to chew on them, bang them around, or throw them on the floor! Yesterday, while feeding her breakfast I tried to see if she would like to try out this spoon. Omg, she took the spoon herself (with the food already on it) and fed herself! To say I was shocked and super happy is the understatement of the year. Now, to work on using the spoon to scoop/pick up food lol. She’s actually trying to learn it with me now. I don’t know why but these spoons truly are the best. They bend in a very easy way and get everything on the spoon. I like the grip of them and the fact that she can teeth on them as well without ripping it apart (hasn’t happened...yet)! I think the reason she was able to use the spoon to feed herself is not only due to bendiness of it, but the grip! It’s also thicker than most spoons making it easier for her to use. Overall, I wish I could give ten stars."—Jennifer Spina

    Promising review: "Both my baby and I love these bottles! First, they are very easy to clean, and just as easy to assemble (important quality to have for my husband). They are dishwasher-safe and I like that there are not any small parts to take apart to wash. My baby latched on right away to this bottle, and transitions easily between bottle and breast. I recommend these bottles to all my friends expecting babies, and usually include one in a gift for baby showers. If I could give these 10 stars I would."—Amazon Customer

    The water bottles in sprinkles and wink
    Amazon

    Promising review: "These are excellent water bottles. I send them to school each day with my grade schoolers. They dump their backpacks on the floor as soon as they get home. Sometimes laying down all night, never ever leak one drop. Not hard to clean, just hold down the button while you swish out the lid with hot soapy water, then hold button down while you rinse through with running water. I wouldn’t use them with milk, but they are excellent as daily use water bottles for kids. Would give extra stars if I could!"—etmama

    33. An instant carpet stain remover that'll come to the rescue for those dreaded "oops" moments. Seriously, what is this magic it performed on this ketchup explosion?

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Can I give it 10 stars? I'm a clean freak and always concocting ways to get stains out of things. However, I have an overpriced wool carpet that my dogs have destroyed with accidents, bully sticks and just general recklessness. Moreover, my kids have taken to tossing all sorts of heavily colored foods on the floor for the pups. I gave up on this rug ever been clean again. I've had it professionally cleaned and tried a dozen things myself... and no difference. I thought I'd try this and assumed that it wouldn't work. I sprayed it on, and minutes later, freaking magic. My very pale blue and white rug is virginal again. I admit that I did rub it in a little on the harsher stains/discoloration but there were plenty of areas that didn't require any follow up rubbing. I'm sincerely blown away and just ordered a second bottle. The price of this product is minimal if you're looking to make your rug/carpet like new again so I would absolutely recommend trying it. I don't think I've ever been this impressed with anything I've ever purchased. I feel cheated for not knowing about this sooner."—bubbleslovesoap

    Promising review: "My 7-year-old son with ADHD and night terrors is finally going to sleep in peace. These gummies have been a complete game-changer for him. He only needs one and within 30 minutes, he's asking to go to bed. Prior to this, bedtime was a long process with brushing teeth, reading books, listening to relaxing music or children's meditation stories, long tuck-ins, a thousand questions, etc. Once he finally got to sleep, he would wake up with night terrors and run from room to room screaming and jumping. His dad and I would have to protect him and his younger brother until it would subside. It was awful. Last week, my son actually came to me and asked if there's anything he could take that would help him sleep, so we bought these. I am in complete amazement. He's getting the best sleep of his life and everyone else is too. As a result of going to bed at a reasonable time, he wakes up at a reasonable time and seems refreshed from a good night's sleep. This is a child who is adamantly opposed to medication of any kind no matter how sick he may be, but I think even he is relieved to be able to get to bed without a two hour battle of restless boredom followed by crazed lunacy in the night. If I could give this product 10 stars, I would."—Kim R. Bilbrey
