    "Worth every penny! My little one loves bath time, and this makes it even more fun! The water spout is awesome and gets taller the longer it sits in the water. The lights are an extra bonus! If you're thinking about buying — do it! Your little one will love this." —Ahliilai

    Watch this mom explain why Globbles are her "new favorite thing ever" on TikTok.

    Promising review: "My 15-year-old asked for these after seeing them on TikTok. I got them as a stocking stuffer thinking they’d be tossed aside. Unbelievably he and his 17-year-old brother have spent time lying in the floor, tossing them up to the ceiling, and waiting for them to fall so they can catch them. I never expected them to get this much use. Bonus is they’re off their phones and in the family room with us." —Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "I don't usually write reviews, but this has been a game changer for us! I have a 13-month-old who hates having her teeth brushed (we tried EVERYTHING before getting this). We've only had it for two days, and there have been no tears since getting it! I let her brush with her regular toothbrush and then follow up with this. She loves it!" —Tyler Parsons

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95 (available in four colors). 

    4. foldable indoor slide because rain shouldn't ruin your little one's day. This slide will come to the rescue if you need a fun indoor activity when you can't make a trip to the park.

    Promising review: "I got this for my 2-year-old daughter's birthday and she LOVES it. She is a little nervous on the playground and she took to this right away. It folds down easily and sets up easily — the design is brilliant. It was actually so easy that I watched the 30 second set up video just to be sure I got it right lol. My 8-year-old son got on it too and it held up. We live in an apartment so this is something that she can climb on safely without taking up a ton of space. Love this product!!" —jenna

    Get it from Amazon for $22.49.

    Promising review: "This is a very cute gadget. I saw this on a TikTok and fell for it lol. I'm glad I did. My kids and I have so much fun making instant s'mores. They're done in about 30–40 seconds with literally no cleanup. The marshmallow doesn't melt over so you basically can just run hot water over it to remove a few crumbs from crackers and be done." —Shawna G.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    7. A grape cutter because dicing grapes to reduce the risk of choking is super important but soooooo time consuming. You can get your kiddo's fave snack ready in minutes so they won't have to wait too long to bite into a juicy grape.

    Promising review: "I love this travel urinal. My son often has to pee when we are out running errands, and it’s not always easy to get to a restroom. I have two young boys; it’s hard to get them in and out of the car to use the restroom. This also helps because in the age of COVID-19 I’m not very comfortable having my kids use public restrooms. If I can avoid it I will, and this makes it possible. Often I’ve used sippy cups, water bottles, or whatever I could find for my son to pee in. This makes it so much easier. It’s also cute so my son actually wants to use it and it doesn’t spill. It could be tipped upside down and it won’t come out. This is a great product. I would buy it again." —Emily

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

    9. A snack spinner so you'll have snacks on deck and in rotation for your *always hungry* little one.

    Promising review: "My 2-year-old loves it, he gets excited every time he pushes the button and sees it spin. He spins it, grabs a piece of strawberry, spins it again, grabs a blueberry; keeps him entertained. It’s easy to clean and compact for easy on-the-go snacks. Great product!" —Noe G.

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in three colors).

    Promising review: "If you have babies or toddlers, this is a must-buy! I saw this on TikTok and decided to try it out. I love this and my kids love this. My kids were so scared for me to rinse their hair and now that we have this they even want to do it themselves! I also just had a baby and she loves it as well! We have had it for a couple of months now and the batteries are still going strong....which if you have kids you know some stuff it feels like you can never get the batteries to last because they are always playing with them. I highly recommend this to every parent!!!" —Amber

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95+ (available in six colors). 

    12. A set of kid-safe plastic knives so you can say yes when your little chef wants to help out in the kitchen. These knives can chop but are not sharp enough to slice your little helper's finger.

    PSA: children should still be supervised while using these knives!

    Promising reviews: "My daughter loves these. I saw these on TikTok then ordered them for my little kitchen helper. We cut up all types of veggies with no problem." —Maia

    "I’ve only had these for a couple of days, but already my 4-year-old daughter keeps asking me for things to chop up. They’re perfect for the little chef in your life or the kid who want to be a big helper. So far she’s easily (and safely) chopped up: lettuce, apples, bananas, strawberries, potatoes, even carrots! I can run my hand along the blade and not cut myself and yet it’s designed in a way that you can still chop through veggies and fruits. Another pro is they are super easy to clean and dishwasher safe. They came exactly as pictures for me: in three different sizes and colors, with a slight grip texture on the handle for little hands. They’re nice and lightweight as well so it’s not cumbersome for younger kids. Love them!" —Abby Roeller

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $8.95 (available in two color combinations).

    13. Some reusable water balloons made of eco-friendly material that can be reused over and over. No need to turn down a water balloon fight because you'll never run out, and these are better for the planet. Go ahead...throw a few of these, I know you want to.

    Promising review: "The adults in this house love water balloons but not the mess…plus with toddlers around, it didn’t quite make sense to have water balloons but we saw a random video on TikTok and HAD to find reusable water balloons to try out. These were the first ones we bought to try out, and WHOA we were blown away! Super easy to for the 2- and 3-year-old to use, which means more fun for all of us!! Do not think twice or continue with regular water balloons, you’ll waste precious time cleaning up and filling that could be used to make memories." —Taurus

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $19.99 (also available in packs of six, 12, and 16). 

    14. A Tushbaby hip carrier so you can carry your mini when they want to cling to you. You'll be able to provide the comfort they need while also preventing back strain. It's a win-win.

    It's recommended for children between 8 and 45 pounds and can be used in four different holding positions — feeding/breastfeeding, side carrying, front facing, and face-to-face. 

    Tushbaby is a small biz run by three California mamas and specializes in products that bring ease to everyday parenting life.

    See why this mama calls the Tushbaby "the best invention for parents of young children" on TikTok

    Promising review: "This has been one of MANY items I have purchased thanks to TikTok, and I'm glad I did. Super easy to use, easy to adjust, and most importantly it helps with support tremendously. It comes with pockets and a place to hold bottles/sippy cups, which can be very handy. My 8-month-old weights around 30–35lbs, and he's basically attached to me 24/7, carrying all day was killing my back and arms! Thank God for this invention, my arms and back can rest." —Jennifer Calle

    Get it from Amazon for $84.99 (available in two colors).

    15. A flying orb that floats and hovers like it came straight off of the pages of Harry Potter. It has flashing lights and will boomerang right back to you when you toss it. This cool toy will earn you some cool points with your kid.

    Promising review: "This toy is so much fun, it can be used in so many ways. It’s not your usual floating toy. It can be used to float and play with like others in its class but this one can do a few extra things like a boomerang you can throw it at an angle and it actually comes back to you. You can also throw it directly at a target, which also makes fun for throwing it back and forth with a friend or you can hover it and have it fly around the room. It charges fast and can be played with for around 20 minutes before needing another charge. My son really enjoyed this toy!" —Natalie

    Get it from Amazon for $34.98 (available in seven colors).

    16. A Mattel Flushin' Frenzy game for laugh out loud fun. This hilarious game will become your kid's new fave quickly (probably yours too). The goal is for players to plunge the toilet, anticipating fake poop to fly out. Players will have to be quick and try to grab the flying poop before another player does first.  TBH, I feel like I have an unfair advantage here because this totally sounds like something every parent has actually done before.

    Check out how to play this funny game on TikTok.

    Promising reviews: "My 5-year-old niece loves it! What can be said really? It's a game where you use a toy plunger to make a smiling rubber poop fly through the air to be caught for points. My niece, like many little kids, is going through a phase where anything related to poop is absolutely hilarious, so I thought this game would be just the thing for her. She loves it! The game is very easy to pick up for 4- and 5-year-olds, the components are well-made, and the poop is...oddly realistic, except for its smiling face of course. This is without a doubt the cleanest option for playing with poop on the market. Your kids'll love it." —Brendan Williams

    "This game is hilarious, my 2 1/2-year-old couldn't get enough of it. As a 44-year-old adult male, I had a great time playing it. I bought this into my work, some colleagues and myself had a good time playing this, I think it could make for a fun drinking game as well." —Buyer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.98+ (available in two styles).

    17. A fairy finder jar that is better than the DIY jar I made to convince my 6-year-old that fairies would visit our garden. This lights up and your little one can catch virtual fairies that they can feed and play with.

    Promising review: "My kids are obsessed with this toy. They really think there are fairies flying around in there =) My son took it and found a bunch of fairies in the backyard so I had to grab it and give it back to his sister so she could find some too! Super easy to use, and so fun to see the fairies on the little screen. The lights are really magical, especially in the dark. It's becoming part of our bedtime routine. I got one for her cousin too, so they're going to try trading fairies this weekend. The only problem is now they want the other two jars!" —Walmart customer

    Get it from Walmart for $39.97 or get a similar version from Amazon for $5.98+ (available in two styles).

    18. A pop-it puzzle toy because it combines two things things kids are obsessed with — bubble wrap and games. This 2-in-1 toy is a pop-it and a Tetris-like puzzle game.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.77+ (available in two color combinations).

    19. And for babies and toddlers, the Dimpl with five silicone bubbles for your child to pop over and over again. It has over 18,000 5-star ratings and will definitely hold your child's attention. Bonus: it's portable making it perfect to keep your kiddo occupied during car rides and doctor visits.

    This BPA-free toy is recommended for babies and toddlers ages 10 months+.

    Promising reviews: "I bought this toy for a long-haul plane ride (12 hours) with a 15-month-old child. It was the perfect toy as there were no parts to lose, and she loved it! It was just challenging enough to keep her occupied for small chunks of time. When we arrived at our destination, she continued to play with it. It's great for restaurants and at home. Once she pushed all the 'dimples' through to one side, she would turn it over and start again. It's also small enough to pop into a pocket or bag for transport. Excellent toy!" —EK

    "This toy is so simple yet very versatile. I'm a pediatric physical therapist, who works with infants with special needs. I bought this toy to use for work to keep babies busy and to use as motivation. I use it for tracking, motivation, teething, reaching, hand and arm strengthening. Surprisingly however, the older children I work with, many school aged with autism also love this toy! It provides wonderful sensory input and sensory stimulation but also acts as a perfect fidget toy for all ages. THE ONLY DOWN SIDE: This toy needs a strap!!! to hook onto strollers or diaper bags, so it doesn't get lost." —cmrvs

    Get it from Amazon for $12.89.
