Because if you leave it up to them, they'll be their own season of Hoarders.

1. A foam puzzle mat that'll be great for corralling your kid while you frantically clean.

Includes 40 interlocking triangles and 32 edge pieces.

Promising Review: "We love that this play mat can be configured into different patterns and sizes to fit our needs! It assembles and breaks down with ease but stays put while in use. It cleans easily and provides the protection for our little ones that we were hoping for!" —Leenie

Get it from Amazon for $78.99.

3. A sweet children's storage box to help keep their room clean (it'll definitely make *you* crave a doughnut).

Get it from Amazon for $18.95 (available in a donut, ice cream, popsicle, jam, cupcake, and pizza print).


5. A storage hammock — it might be a more unique definition of organized, but it'll make cleaning up with your kiddo so much easier and, let's be real, it's gonna look crazy cool.

Promising Review: "This hammock is nicely made and super easy to install. It is large enough to hold a ton of stuffed animals and the elastic stretches nicely so that the animals don't fall out. I would absolutely purchase this item again." —Megan T.

Get it from Amazon for $14.98 (available in three colors).


10. Or a classic basketball hoop hamper for when they'd rather play than clean.

Promising Review: "My son loves this basketball hoop. It's an easy way to get him to put his dirty laundry away. It makes him feel like he is not doing work and just playing around." —DJ

Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

11. A brilliant bean bag you can fill with stuffed animals that'd otherwise be left on the floor.

Promising Review: "This is such a great way to store stuffed animals, extra blankets, etc. The bag holds a lot, yet isn't huge. Perfect size for kids. Sturdy fabric and easy to use zipper. The handle is very nice, too!" —Meghan Ude

Get it from Amazon for $23.49.


13. A modular closet that'll make it much easier for your child to access and put away their clothing (with the help of some insanely cute critters).

Includes two hanging cubbies, eight storage cubes, stainless-steel frames, no-tool assembly, and magnets to close each section.

Promising Review: "This closet is very adorable. The materials are of high quality. The characters on each door are so cute and colorful. The magnets that came with it are well-designed to keep the door from opening. Overall, I'm happy with my purchase and would recommend it to my friends who are looking for an affordable, yet sturdy, closet." —Helwa

Get it from Amazon for $59.99 (available in pink and blue).

14. A storage building block table for keeping Lego pieces off the floor, because we know stepping on a Lego piece hurts so bad you'll want to give away your kid.

Includes a multi-surface table top, construction panels for brick toys, and two storage drawers.

Promising Review: "I absolutely love this table. It is very well-made. Holds lots of Legos, as well as other toys in the two pull-out drawers." —Chris Vilcinskas

Get it from Amazon for $105.98.


16. A storage bag for hiding your stockpile of seasonal clothes under the bed, which'll also thwart your child's best efforts at making the bottom of the bed a real-life nightmare.

Includes two-way zipper, breathable material, and wide handles, and is machine-washable.

Get it from Amazon for $11.89+ (available in two sizes).

17. A kid-friendly pocket bookshelf that'll keep your books organized and your children well-read.

Promising Review: "This is a great addition to our kids' living room layout. We previously had trouble getting our kids (18 months and 3 years) to pick up their books. The way the pockets on this shelf face out has made a huge difference, as the kids will now pull books out because they can see the covers." —Daniel Scalph

Get it from Amazon for $22.99.


22. A loft tent bed with a slide that'll give you more usable floor space and make your kid that friend with the coolest bed ever.

Includes ladder, slide, guard rails, and tent.

Promising Review: "This is the perfect loft for little ones. Or with a mattress below, it makes a perfect bunk for emergency situations. Great purchase, easy to put together, and the slide is the bomb to all who visit. I would recommend this to anyone with younger kids." —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $332.02 (available in five colors).


25. A mini locker that'll let your kids keep their tiny treasures safe while making their room look as cool as you wish yours had been when you were their age.

Includes a padlock (which you can maybe keep away from children to prevent important valuables from being locked inside), two keys, removable shelves and hooks, and padded feet to protect tabletops.

Get it from Amazon for $20.95 (available in seven colors).
