    Promising review: "Wonderful little lamp, great for a small space! I use it as a desk lamp, where both my 10-year-old and I work, and it’s ideal for this purpose. The light controlling mechanism on the cord works well for different levels of natural light, and the openwork shade is very airy and pretty without adding any visual 'weight' to a small space. A perfect lamp for us, overall." —MrsA 

    Price: $55

    5. And an adorable rattan arch leaf shelf so they can store all their favorite knickknacks (a nicer word for junk). I love giving my kids their own space so they can feel like they are a little bit responsible.

They are not very deep but work for my needs. Would definitely buy again due to great quality and durability. P.S. The boxes were super heavy and took two to three people to lift up my stairs." —Sha

    Promising reviews: "I was looking for a storage box for my kids toys with a lid. This storage box is adorable and a very large size it holds all of their toys with extra room. I do wish that it was a little bit sturdier since it is the cardboard box but so far it is held up good. I also really love the fact that the lid has a magnetic closure so that it does stay closed." —Kelly

    Price: $30 (available in two colors)

    21. A storage bench and reading nook that we just purchased — our kids can't get enough of it! This nook is sure to get your little ones excited about reading and is so cute. We love its modern style.

    Promising Review: "I have a toddler and four cats so this is a must. This is the third one I’ve purchased and the only one I’m thrilled with so far. The design is lightweight and practical, and the only design flaw I’ve noticed is that the crevice tool is a little bit flimsy and might break easily. This product charges well and quickly and clearly indicates when it’s ready to be used. It’s a little loud, but my toddler still tried it out! He had fun with his new cleaning tool." –Erin

    Price: $54.99

    26. A kitchen helper so they stop climbing all over your nice dining chairs. Here is another product I will swear by. This kitchen helper is perfect for your little one who is interested in everything you do in the kitchen. It is also super sturdy.

    Promising review: "The kitchen stool comes completely assembled except for some stabilizers at the feet. It folds down to a small size that I can tuck away in my kitchen. My 1-year-old loves standing next to me to help with dinner. Would recommend, worth every penny. Feels well-built and sturdy with good safety features." —Autumn

    Price: $229.95

    27. A bath armrest because you need to do your elbows a favor and invest in one of these babies. You spend every night with them in the bath, trust me — this is a necessity!

    Target

    Promising review: "Super-cushy. I love to watch my baby splish and splash and the cushion means I can comfortably lean over to support her without getting cold. Our bath is really cold to the touch and a towel doesn't stay put, plus it kept getting wet. Definitely don't need more laundry! If the pad gets wet, I can just hang it on a hook by the loop and it gets dry really quickly. It also looks nicer than the other ones I looked at buying. I don't like all those animal-themed ones — this is for my use, not my baby and it's to fit in with our bathroom decor that is very modern." —carrie123

    Price: $14.99

    28. A bath storage basket that will change your life. Ditch those suction cup bath storage bags — this is the way to go. Plus, it also has draining capabilities so you can avoid mildew build-up.

    Promising review: "This is, by far, the best and most practical bath toy storage I have used. This is our third or fourth bath toy storage system used and I know it will be the last because it works the best. All other we have tried suction to the wall, and without fail, during the night we hear a big crash and all of the bath toys are in the tub. We do not have that issue any longer with this. It is also super convenient for my 3-year-old to reach into while bathing and to help clean up. 10/10 would recommend!" —Kimpa

    Price: $13.99

    29. A safe all-purpose cleaner our family uses and trusts. Little kids are dirty and this cleaner helps clean up all those tough messes!

    31. A bottle of soothing Epsom salt foaming bubble bath because all parents need to relax at the end of the day to get ready for the next. If you can find time away from the kiddos to take a bath, you'll definitely want this in your bathroom!
