    Promising review: "Fun educational toy! My 2-year-old daughter has been obsessed with shapes and colors. She loves looking through them, then naming the color and shape.

    Reviewers say this spray will leave wavy or curly hair (from 2a–4c hair) shiny, soft, and bouncy.

    Promising review: "My 2-year-old daughter has curly frizzy hair. And I have tried sooo many leave in conditioners to define her hair. Nothing thus far has worked. But this stuff is amazing! Truly defines her curls without any hold or crunch. Soft bouncy curls. The smell is quite strong — but it does smell good. If you are sensitive to smells you might want to prepare yourself ahead of time for this. I will buy this again and again. So glad I found something that works for my toddlers curls." —mike

    4. A pack of five clear stove knob covers that'll prevent your little whirlwind of destruction from unknowingly starting a a fire in the kitchen. (Why are they so obsessed with appliances at this age? *sigh*)

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Are you tired of running to the stove every time your toddler is near it, and saying 'No, HOT' in your sleep? When toddlers can walk they are into everything, and especially curious in touching, pushing, turning, etc. When they reach those little fingers up to the stove knob, it’s not always that difficult to turn. These safety stove covers are literally lifesavers. They are so easy to open and close with one hand for an adult but not for a child. They are easily seen through while cooking and can be easily put on and removed without leaving a trace of anything or marks behind. Best child-proofing ever, and you can’t beat the price!." —SAHM Teacher

    amazon.com

    The urinal is easy to install — simply suction it onto tiles.

    Promising review: "You guys! My son is 3 years old, we've been sort-of potty training for the past year (off and on). I couldn't figure out why he would only go when he wanted to and not other times, I mean at one point he literally told me "I don't want underwear, I tee-tee in a pull-up." That was my breaking point! If you can look me in the eye and tell me you prefer peeing on yourself something must be done. We had tried the ugly Mickey potty that sat on the floor, we tried the toilet trainer that goes on the actual potty, I even spent the $40 for the toddler toilet that looks just like real one — NOTHING! So I decided to buy this urinal, I had seen them on Facebook and thought 'What the hell's ANOTHER toilet!' It came in and the next day was history. He loves tee-teeing in the frog. We have now been potty trained for two months and I owe it all to this stupid toilet. We had tried lollipops, we tried stickers, we tried rewards — nothing worked until this urinal! Best thing I could have put my money on. It's easy to clean, and holds up by a command hook on my wall!" —Danielle Boggs

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in three colors).

    You can preset intervals of 30 minutes, 60 minutes, 90 minutes, 2 hours, and 3 hours. The watch has an inbuilt proximity sensor and only sounds alerts when it is worn so no need to turn it off at night. How smart is that?

    Promising review: "Love this watch! My 3 year old was giving me a run for my money. He was by far my most stubborn child to potty train. This watch has made a night and day difference. He puts it on when he wakes up and leaves it on all day. He gets super excited when the the countdown timer starts to okay music and lights up. He now will yell 'potty' and run to the bathroom. This watch is a must-have if you have a stubborn little one!"MamaBear3

    Get it from Amazon for $23.95.

    8. A Melissa & Doug reusable puffy sticker activity book with princesses and mermaids galore that'll keep them enchanted for hours — whether decorating a castle or styling an under-the-sea outfit (the world is their creative oyster).

    Amazon

    The set includes three reusable puffy sticker activity books with dress-up, princess, and mermaid themes. Each book comes with 65+ reusable puffy stickers.

    Promising review: "These are perfect sticker books for younger kids and toddlers because of the puffy stickers. The stickers aren’t very sticky, but that’s why I like them. My 2-year-old can play and play with them and I don’t have to worry about them damaging my coffee table! Also, they make great gifts and are wonderful to bring on planes or to restaurants to keep kids busy!" —RaeK

    Promising review: "I know all kids are different but these kept my toddler busy and interested like almost nothing else I bought during this shelter-in! She has had for weeks and continues to go back and reuse quietly for up to 30 minutes by herself! We've tried some other similar products, but these stickers are so easy for her to peel off and they stick over and over again. Very very happy with this pretty simple product!" —Stephanie McCullen

    Get a set from Amazon for $12.99.

    9. And a Melissa & Doug magnetic calendar that'll teach your nugget the days of the week, months and the weather in a hands-on, interactive way. They'll jump out of bed eagerly to update it every morning.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Almost-3-year-old loves it. After getting this he’s now asking me 'today’s Tuesday mom?' And 'it’s winter now?' He likes the holiday magnets and trying to figure out where to put the arrow for the temperature each day. It is sort of heavy, so I would recommend using a nail to hang it or Command strips around the rope so you don’t damage your wall. I used a Velcro heavy weight Command strip and it has held up for a few months now. We tried attaching Command strips to the back of the wood and it wasn’t holding to that material. This is a must have for toddlers." —Steph

    Get it from Amazon for $13.74.

    10. A realistic wooden pretend play magnetic cutting set for challenging your budding chef's dexterity as they chop up fruits and veggies to their heart's content. Reviewers rave about the durability of this set.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This set comes includes 26 items of food including fruits, vegetables, fish, burger, bread, ice cream, steak and more! It also comes with a cutting board, two knives and a storage bucket.

    Parents please supervise as some of the smaller pieces might be a choking hazard.

    Promising review: "I've seen a lot of wooden food cutting sets over the years, but this one is the best by far. First of all, the pieces connect by magnet rather than velcro. The velcro sets tend to stop sticking once they've been used for a while. This one has well made and sturdy pieces with some unique pieces like dragon fruit and spring onion. My personal favorite is the grapes, which can be pulled off the vine in groups of two (too big to choke on) and stuck back together. It also comes with a cutting board, two knives, and a little vegetable peeler. My 3-year-old loves this set and has been playing with it over and over. Well worth the money." —Michael Bower

    Get a set from Amazon for $41.99.

    11. A canvas growth chart so you can keep track of your munchkin's height (who is growing up waayyy too fast 😢) without marking up the walls. Reviewers love that it can be rolled up and stored away as a cute keepsake.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "The designs on this are adorable and look great in my toddler's room. It's soooo tall, too. You'll be able to measure even your giant kids before they go off to college. It rolls up nice and small so it will be easy to store and take out when they are too big for the cutesy designs but you still want to torture them with your parental nostalgia." —Justina Schneeweis

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    12. A minimal silicone placemat that comes in a variety of chic designs perfect for toting to brunch with your little BFF. (They'll be excused for demanding avocado toast).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "The best placemat for kids!!! I can't emphasize this enough — it really easy the best. This is the only one that grips well to our rough wood table, it cleans easy, and the graphics don't flake off like other patterned silicone mats. Not to mention the cutest colors and patterns. Every who comes over asks where we got them!" —Michael Sciarra

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in 13 colors).

    13. A pack of sippy cups made from recycled milk jugs with 10,000 5-star (!!!) reviews. Basically holy grail status because they'll withstand rough-and-tumble antics without leaking or breaking.

    Reviewer's photo of the cups in green, teal, yellow, and aqua
    amazon.com

    P.S. they're dishwasher safe and microwave safe.

    Promising review: "These cups are very well made!! Q.U.A.L.I.T.Y. They’re very THICK which makes them super durable and strong! My toddler has put these cups through it all, thrown, tossed, chewed, you name it and they still look perfect! I’ve put them through the dishwasher with zero problems and have not seen any staining (but I also bought the blue colored set). I’m extremely pleased with the quality of these cups. They don’t leak, not even when you put them upside down. The only little annoyance is having to remove the plastic stopper from inside the lid every time I wash and then re-inserting them once they’re dry. Another thing I like is that I won’t have to purchase any more cups as my son gets older because the kids can just be removed and the cups can still be used as 'big kid cups.'" —Sofia I

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $19.99 (available in 18 color combos).

    14. Or an EZPZ silicone mini training cup and straw combo designed by a pediatric feeding specialist to teach toddlers to safely drink from an open cup and straw. It'll fit perfectly in chubby little hands (thanks to the weighted bottom) and make the transition from the bottle to the cup, well, eazy peazy.

    EZPZ

    EZPZ is is a woman-owned biz that creates developmentally-focused, minimalist tableware for little ones.

    P.S. The cup and straw are made from 100% toxin-free silicone (no BPA, BPS, PVC, latex, or phthalates). The food-grade silicone is safe for your toddler’s developing teeth + gums and dishwasher safe.

    Promising review: "Must-have! I had been concerned that my 1-year-old wasn’t picking up straw drinking easily. The day the straw training cup arrived, she began drinking from a straw!! Yay! Made me so unbelievably happy! Of course, the cup is darling and the design detail is excellent. The speech pathologist who constructed the cup knew exactly what she was doing. I highly recommend you get this cup!" —Rachel

    Get it from EZPZ for $14.99.

    15. A nasal aspirator strong enough to suck the snot out but gentle enough for your toddler's tiny nose so there's a 99.9% chance (🤞🤞🤞) they won't fight you when you use it.

    The nasal aspirator, nose tips, manual sucker and the box
    Amazon

    Promising review: "My toddler is constantly catching a cold with a runny nose and we found that the typical suction bulb just wasn't cutting it. We've also tried the Nose Frida a couple times but that was hard to use with only one adult and a screaming toddler that needs to be pinned down. I was skeptical about this tool at first because of the price and also because I first saw it on an Instagram ad and it seemed gimmicky. However, after using this tool for about two months I am extremely happy that I've found a solution for my baby's runny nose. The suction is great and I love that it sucks constantly. Also this doesn't seem to bother my baby at all, in fact she laughs when we use this." —Stephanie

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    16. A pack of stick-on fever indicators that'll come in handy during cold and flu season. Simply stick the bug on their head and it'll change color to indicate temp letting you monitor your child's fever for up to 48 hours.

    Amazon

    It goes without saying that these stickers aren't a replacement for a thermometer. But, if your kid has a temp, these will help you keep track of whether their fever is spiking or going down.

    Promising review: "We had a stressful day of trying to keep our 3-year-old's fever down and he was exhausted. I had these in the cabinet and stuck one on at bedtime. It immediately lit up N, which matched the thermometer. While putting him to bed I saw it go to 99 so when I checked on him in 30 min I brought the thermometer '99.3.' We used it throughout the night to monitor whether or not we should wake him for more medicine. I think of it as a peace of mind sticker. He loves stickers and got a big kick out of it. He’s had it on about 13 hours now with no complaints. There’s a shiny N there now, and this paranoid mama still checks with a thermometer occasionally to make sure it’s accurate." —Nateric

    Get eight stickers from Amazon for $6.50.

    17. An inexpensive foldable indoor slide capable of holding up to 50 lbs that'll come to the rescue when it's freezing outside. The best part? Just pop it up for playtime and fold it down flat for storage.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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).

    18. A pack of sink extenders to save your back the strain of hoisting your little one over the sink. Not to mention they'll love the independence of washing their hands all by themselves.

    Amazon, Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "Must have for toddlers and small children! LOVE this! My 1- and 3-year-old love washing their hands now and my back gets a nice break. Adding the faucet extenders and a stepstool to our bed time/morning routine has been a godsend. Great bargain for the price." —TeaBea21

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $10.95.

    19. And a Crayola step stool with grippy colored dots and anti-skid footpad to give your munchkin a confident boost when they're going through the "I can do it all by myself" phase. Plus, it folds up neatly once they're done using it.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is amazing! I keep one with me wherever and whenever I have my toddler with me when not at home. He adjusted to using it right away and it actually made him more comfortable using public potties than without this coverage. There is plenty of seat coverage and the adhesion works perfectly. In these times of germophobia, this puts my mind at ease a little more and makes us feel just a little safer." —Jessica

    Get a pack of 24 covers from Amazon for $9.79.

    21. A child-safe wooden knife for budding sous chefs eager to help in the kitchen. This tool will keep their little fingers protected and spark interest in the food they eat.

    Leap Frog

    Promising review: "One of the best gifts we bought for our 1-year-old on his first birthday!! This is an amazing electronic book for toddlers or little ones that are learning their first words. It is also something they can continue to learn with as they grow because there are different settings. I couldn’t believe how nice it was for the price. Great buy and very educational/fun!" —slowdown&lookup12

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    23. And a coconut and shea butter kids' conditioning detangler with 9,500 5-star reviews (!!!) raving that it's the BEST STUFF ON THE PLANET. Just a few spritzes will combat hair woes — from making knots vanish after a swim to taming frizz when humidity is *through the roof*.

    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: "I highly recommend this! My toddler hates getting her hair combed or tied up because of this she gets knots and her hair gets tangled. I had to cut her knots in the past but not anymore. I purchased this detangler and it has helped her hair so much. I feel it is most effective in my opinion if i use it when her hair is wet. I spray the detangler directly on her knots and comb thru repeatedly and it smoothes the hair out so well! I've noticed that after using this product for a long time her curls have taken a better shape and are more defined." —AJLiz

    Get it from Amazon for $3.97.

    24. And a detangling brush for any child who hates — repeat, HATES — having their hair brushed. This tool will glide through knots to turn a daily ordeal into a painless experience minus the *ouchies or tears*. Just trust the 40,000+ people who gave it a 5-star review.

    Amazon, amazon.com

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

    Promising review: "I bought this for my 2-year-old daughter who has fine hair, but a lot of it. She hated me brushing her hair, even with using nice shampoo and a detangler. I was battling her all the time to brush it. So after seeing pictures of other people that it worked for I decided why not give it a try. This brush is seriously awesome, my daughter is now brushing her hair on her own and offering to brush other people's hair. It was seriously the best thing we could hav bought. I highly recommend it!!" —Alan

I ran into this in Annapolis, Maryland, at a Muse paint bar and again randomly in TJ Maxx (I love the spray bottle for bigger stains), but since I'm a mom of a toddler this is ideal for clothing and spot treatment in the house or on the go.

    Promising review: "Holy moly having the knob on the side that allows you to retract the bag into the container makes this tiny contraption SO amazing.

    A child model sitting on the nonslip mat in the bathtub
    Amazon

    Promising review: "We had to replace our kids old bath mat because it started to look as if mildew was growing on it. The main reason we chose this one was it has holes that allow it to dry more fully. We always wipe it down and hang it off to the side so that all the water can run off and it can fully dry. This material doesn’t soak up water like our previous bath mat. I also love that it covers the area around the drain hole because for some reason my toddler loves to sit right there in the corner. He also has a bad habit of standing up and has even tried jumping around and dancing in the tub. Luckily this mat is textured and he has yet to slip. This extra-long mat covers the whole length of the tub and keeps our kids safe Great buy." —Sue

    Promising review: "Oh my goodness these are a LIFESAVER. My 2-year-old pees a lot overnight and was leaking through his overnight diapers every night. His pants would get soaked and I would have to change him in the middle of the night or feel horrible letting him sleep in his own pee. Then I read about these booster pads so I thought I'd give them a try. It totally worked. My kid doesn't leak through any more. I would definitely recommend this for heavy night wetters." —Christine

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These arrived quickly and were easy to install....you did need a good fingernail to get the tabs off for sticking, but other than that, piece of cake. And they look so good! When I showed my husband, he said they almost looked decorative on our glass table! And now I don't have to worry (as much) when our 2-year-old granddaughter races past that entry way table...she may get a little bump if she should hit the corner, but she won't get cut, and that was our big concern." —Sharon H

    Plus, it has anti-inflammatory ingredients like organic aloe leaf juice and organic eucalyptus leaf to soothe sore fingers.

    Promising review: "We got tired of stepping on our 2-year-old's toys or having to take them all out of the shower/bath to put in a tub where there was also a small amount of water at the bottom because of the toys draining, I've only had for few days but so far so good. My daughter likes it too, now she is just taking out the toys she wants instead of all of the toys. I also used the suction hooks, no falling so far. I also put it closer to the tub over lapping a bit so she can reach her toys herself. If you have toddlers who love bubbles and toys this is perfect!"—Jessica Kirby

    39. A pack of ingenious no-spill paint cups so budding artists can create their next masterpiece without leaving messy splatters and spills on the table. The best part? The lids keep any leftover paint from drying out.

    The set includes 10 cups and 10 color coordinated paintbrushes.

    Promising review: "These are the perfect size for a toddler (2-years-old) the cups are not too big or too small. We fill the cups up with about a half inch of paint. When we finish painting we put the kids on and put them away, the paint hasn’t dried out on us yet and they’ve sat unused for a week at a time with a quarter inch of paint in them. My son gets so excited when he see us pulling these out. I would buy these again. We haven’t had any spills with these but I think if you were to fill them up (a few inches) with more paint that you could have a spill. The matching color lids and brushes are great for helping kids learn to match."  —Krys
