    If The Kids Are Super Quiet, They're Probably Playing With One Of These 30 Walmart Products

    And by "quiet," we mean preoccupied with these products and not destroying the house from boredom.

    1. A tunnel that should provide at least 30 minutes of entertainment. Your tiny humans can crawl through colorful areas and have their own mini indoor gym.

    2. And a set of balls for the tunnel and ball pit combo above. The balls can be used in other various play tent/activity sets — Think Chuck E. Cheese but at home!

    3. A set of liquid floor tiles to appease sensory needs and parent wants for a moment of calmness in the house. Touch each square with your hands *or* have a dance party with your feet to reveal cool colors.

    4. A double dance mat so you can dance with your kiddo and burn some calories while working out in your living room. No need to go to the gym later on.

    5. A bounce house designed to be used indoors or outdoors. Kid math states that 1 hour of jumping equates to wiggles being gone for 15 minutes — use your 15 minutes of peace wisely.
