    1. A handy kitchen gadget that'll tempt you to peel, core, and slice every apple in sight.

    Promising review: "We recently moved to a property with apple trees. I was peeling the apples by hand, and it got old fast! Then I saw this product and ordered it. It worked so well that the same day I received it, I ordered two more (one for my husband to help and another as a spare). It is the BOMB! It works on small apples, large apples, and deformed apples. I cannot say enough good things about this product. It is so efficient, and there is minimal waste (unlike when I was doing it all by hand). I cannot recall when I have been so enamored with a kitchen gadget purchase. If you have apples or love to cook with apples, this product is a must for you!" —Dena D

    Get it from Amazon for $18.95.

    2. A box of Kinetic Sand (aka squeezable/moldable sand) you'll want to run your hands through over and over again.

    Promising review: "I bought this for my 3-year-old daughter, but I think I play with it just as much as she does. This set is so much fun. I know as a parent when I think sand, I think messy, stuck-to-everything disaster. But this sand somehow stays together. Even if the sand spills outside of the tray, it's an easy cleanup. There aren't a million grains of sand everywhere. My daughter loves this set, and it keeps her occupied for hours. You can also use Play-Doh molds and toys with this, and they work great. Very happy with my purchase." —Mommyof2

    Get it from Amazon for $37.99.

    3. A nifty knife for instantly turning a cold, hard chunk of butter into spreadable ribbons. / Via,

    Get it from the MoMa Design Store for $20 or a similar one from Amazon for $10.87.

    4. A set of magnetic tiles to piece together and make pretty much anything you want.,

    Promising review: "I LOVE these and so do my kids! I have NO idea how I missed these all these years. The magnets are enclosed in the plastic and they hold up pretty well; so far none have broken, and my kids have thrown their 'balls' onto the tile floor. You can make lots of cool stuff, and Google searches or Youtube show you plenty of possibilities, but my kids haven't needed that." —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon: 30-pack for $32.68, 60-pack for $60.88, 112-pack for $76.59, 144-pack for $99.

    5. A lamp that opens like a book. The cover is magnetic, so it sticks to any metal surface.,

    It runs up to eight hours on a rechargeable battery!

    Get the mini version from Design Within Reach for $125 (available in three colors) or the full-size version for $200 (available in two colors).

    6. A decorating kit for making cupcakes with tri-color frosting and convincing people you're some sort of baking whiz.,

    Promising review: "Worked AWESOME! I'm not a professional but with this decorating set, my cupcakes looked like I am. Easy to work with." —Luanne Lobdell

    Get it from Amazon for $9.23.

    7. A fidget toy appropriately named the "Lollipopter," because it's like candy for your eyes.

    Promising review: "Everybody who comes to our house picks this up, and once they get the hang of it, they can't stop playing with it. It sounds simple, but it's very mesmerizing and satisfying to do. The plastic all falls into place one way or the other with this clicking sound, and all the pieces line up so nicely if you get it right that it just feels very satisfying. I know it's technically a math toy, related to the golden mean, but you don't have to be a math-head to like it." —Una the Tuna

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95 (available in four colors).

    8. A magical 3D-printing pen — it's a toy that lets you make other toys (and whatever else you can think of).

    Promising review: "GREAT TOY that uses imagination and introduces engineering and design concepts. This is a toy you might play with after your child goes to sleep. The possibilities are endless..." —nicole

    Get it from Amazon for $47.49.

    9. A can of cleaning slime that'll mold itself to fit the otherwise unreachable crevices on electronic devices and pick up all the dirt.

    It is nontoxic and biodegradable!

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99 or The Grommet for $19.95+ (includes one regular container and two refill bags).

    10. A set of brush pens perfect for pursuing the art of calligraphy.

    Promising review: "I purchased these after seeing several well-known artists utilize them, and was not disappointed! They are incredibly pigmented but easy to work with. I use them for hand lettering and calligraphy, and they flow smoothly and are perfect for people starting to hand-letter or just looking to draw with quality brush pens. I'm very impressed, and would definitely repurchase." —Maesie Saffle

    Get a 10-pack from Amazon for $17.95.

    11. A pack of squishy Orbeez to sink your hands (or feet) into.

    Get a 1,000-pack from Amazon for $10.90.

    12. An electric pressure washer that'll get rid of any grime stuck on your walls, driveway, or car.

    Promising review: "This is my first pressure washer, and I'm very pleased! I wasn't sure what to expect, but I can say this is doing exactly what I wanted. Now I look for things to clean. So far I've done the exterior walls of the house, the driveway, windows, and the car. I feel so much better pulling up to a home without all that moldy crud growing two feet up the walls. I'm terrible at maintenance, and this tool makes it easy, fun, and satisfying." —Kevin and Barbara

    Get it from Amazon for $145.72.

    13. A peel-off polish barrier so you can paint outside the lines and then peel the excess product right off.

    This is great for creating flawless French manicure tips as well!

    Promising review: "SO helpful while doing nail art, also if you're just painting your nails and don't have the steadiest hands. I use it all the time, and it's really easy to remove once you're done." —Ivy Hasman

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    14. An automatic sand drawing machine that'll make symmetrical mandala patterns or random doodles.,

    Get it from ThinkGeek for $49.99.

    15. A stainless steel garlic crusher for people who have a morbid fascination with the way garlic gets pushed through tiny holes. It can't just be me.

    After you're done with it, just rinse under water, and it cleans right up! #gadgetgoals

    Promising review: "I eat a lot of garlic. Because of this, my fingers pretty much smell like garlic all the time. And it's not that I don't enjoy awkwardly clutching the tiny, milky clove delicately in two fingers while I clumsily slice its inconveniently shaped body first lengthwise, then crosswise — then inevitably get frustrated and go all Dexter on that pungent little bastard. I actually really do enjoy this, but sometimes I would rather not have garlicky fingers all day, and sometimes I don't have enough time for my sadistic little garlic ritual. But now I don't have to use a knife. Now I can use this delightful maxi pad–shaped piece of steel to mince my garlic in one fell swoop (or maybe two or three swift motions, side to side, back and forth) and let me tell you, I heartily enjoy it. I think you will, too." —Jennifer Hare

    Get it from Amazon for $10.49.

    16. A two-in-one device cleaner for finally getting rid of the nastiness collecting on your tablet/phone/computer screen.

    One side dispenses a cleaning solution that kills bacteria, and the other side polishes the surface off so it looks nice and shiny.

    Get it from Amazon, The Grommet, or HÄNS for $14.95.

    17. A fast-working wine stain remover, because people who enjoy red wine usually also enjoy wearing white shirts. (It's weird but true.)

    This stain-remover is chlorine-free!

    Promising review: "Had some red wine splash on me during a wedding. Not like a huge puddle, but left a few streaks on the pant leg of a 100% wool suit. I sprayed some of this on a paper towel and applied it (conservatively) to the stains, then used a clean, wet paper towel to remove the residue. Worked like magic." —Will B.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.69.

    18. A set of bowls that nest perfectly together to form a lotus flower.

    Get it from Wayfair for $59.99+ (available in four colors).

    19. A tin of magnetic putty to play with while you're doing some deep thinking.,

    It comes with a small cube magnet that you can watch get eaten by the putty.

    Promising review: "I'm an adult, and I love this stuff. Took it to work, and everyone played with it. Took it to my nephew's house, and they loved it. Watching it crawl up over a magnet is kinda creepy and science-y fun. It will completely swallow little neo magnets that I have around, and they absorb pretty quickly. I put it over a hard drive voice coil magnet (super strong) and the putty actually started standing up in field lines after an hour or so. Very cool." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $22.95.

    20. A multi-purpose slicer for getting perfectly uniform slices every time.

    Get it from Amazon for $37.95.

    21. A hand-painted flat candle that burns without dripping wax.

    Promising review: "Truly, this candle is the most beautiful one ever. Since it's so thin with intricate painting on it, this candle is like a work of art. It's made in Lithuania, so I purchased it for a friend of Lithuanian heritage." —Bonnie

    Get it from The Grommet for $11.95 (also available in a holiday design).

    22. An electric peeler named "Rotato Express" (lol). But don't let the name deceive you — it'll peel things other than potatoes, such as fruits.,

    Promising review: "Absolutely the most fun I have ever had peeling potatoes! Received quickly thanks to Prime, very reasonable price (I did shop around), and it works exactly as described. It’s fun to watch, easy to use, and makes the tedious job of peeling potatoes surprisingly painless and rather fast. I will recommend to my family and friends and would definitely buy again!" —LeesaRN

    Get it from Amazon for $17.30.

    23. An ergonomic one-handed bottle opener. Not only is it super easy to use, it keeps the caps unbent in case you want to collect them.

    Get it from Amazon, Jet, or The Grommet for $16+ (available in eight colors).

    24. A hot dog slicer that'll either make you feel super satisfied or super uncomfortable.

    It'll help hot dogs cook more evenly and keep condiments in place.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.88, The Grommet for $15, or Walmart for $16.99.

    25. A magnetic spot scrubber perfect for cleaning bottles with small openings.

    Promising review: "I bought this scrubber last week, and I've used it every day since! It works wonderfully, and it reaches the nooks and crannies of my bottles! Our family drinks a lot of water, and we go through water bottles a few times a year. I have yet to find anything that works anywhere near this well! If you are concerned about getting some things extra clean, this is a great way to get there!" —J. Amaya

    Get it from Amazon for $9.89.

    26. An ~a-maze-ing~ book filled with tactile labyrinths to solve with your fingertips.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.52 or Knock Knock for $14.

    27. A bottle filled with ferrofluid that changes shape in a magnet's presence. It's satisfying but also kind of terrifying.

    Each bottle comes with a magnet!

    Get it from Concept Zero for $32.99+ (available in two sizes).
