A Roomba robot vacuum for 37% off so you can watch your house get cleaned while you cook dinner, help your fifth-grader with their math homework, or collapse on the couch after the kids go to bed. Technology can be great.

Promising review: “So far it is amazing! It picks up SO much dirt and hair. We have three dogs and a cat and my floors are spotless. We decided to get this cheaper one to see if it was something that would work for us and I am amazed! For the first week, we let it run everyday. We made sure we picked everything up and it only got stuck one time and that was because it went behind our couch that had been moved out accident. During week two, I did the maintenance on it and it was super simple. We use it every other day and have it schedule to run just before we get home. This thing even picks up cat litter! If you are on the fence, try it. Has made my life so much easier not having to sweep everyday!” —Kathryn P.

Price: $169.99 (originally $269)


A lightweight Dyson V8 cordless vacuum for 26% off. It’s engineered to pick up ground-in dirt and fine dust from hard floors and carpets, and it’s so easy to use you won’t mind pulling it out (or assigning the chore to your teen) a couple of times of week.

Promising review: “So far I am happy with this vac. Its strong suction made my area rugs look like they had been professionally cleaned. It is quiet and basically lightweight, but heavier than some small vacs on the market. It runs smooth, handles well, and one charge is all I need to thoroughly clean my apartment. I haven’t tried all the attachments yet, but I love the soft floor brush for hardwood floors. They looked like they had been polished after I vacuumed.” —J. Ellen Fisher

Price: $349+ (originally $469.99; available in two styles)


Or a Shark vacuum for 32% off designed for people with allergies (your teen’s about to breathe a sigh of relief between sneezes) — it deep cleans powerfully according to reviewers, has a HEPA filter to trap dust inside, and an extra-large dust capacity so you can clean longer without emptying the bin.

And the included attachments (including an upholstery brush) are designed to pick up pet hair, no problem!

Promising review: “So I never write reviews but I just had to write this one. I usually use a Dyson multiple times a week on the area rug in my living room. This $500 piece of junk really wasn’t doing a great job at anything related to cleaning. So my cleaning ladies recommended this vacuum, and When it arrived I immediately vacuumed the 5×7 foot rug in the living room. In the picture, you can see what came out of that rug in less than a minute. I am amazed and disgusted at the same time but the fact is, this thing is great! Not just for the price, but generally – for any price, this is the best vacuum I’ve ever owned. It has great suction power on carpet and hardwood floors and for stairs, it even gets the tight corners because it’s so powerful. As for cleaning up hair — I have three dogs, and all the hair is gone off my rug. I used to have to do this by hand with the dyson attachment for upholstery, on all fours, etc. it would take me over an hour. I am so glad I bought this thing! The only couple of cons I need to mention is that it’s definitely on the heavier side and doesn’t fit into the areas under the couch. I used the hose but it’s very stiff so it’s kind of difficult to maneuver without having the vacuum fall over. This may have to do with how new the unit is, but it’s just something to note. Still definitely highly recommend this vacuum. It’s a no brainer.” —Verenice B.

Price: $149.99 (originally $219.99)


Or! A Hoover ~PowerMax~ vacuum for 29% off specifically made with pet households in mind — which, if you have pets AND kids, you REALLY need a good vac. It has a HEPA filter, multipurpose pet tools, and an extra large dirt container so you can clean for longer. I stopped sneezing just thinking about this.

Promising review: “This vacuum is AMAZING! I have two dogs and two cats, meaning I have a lot of hair, dander, sand and dirt in my home. This vacuum gets ALL the hair off everything. Has attachments to reach hair in hard to reach areas! The suction power is so strong, gets every grain of sand.” —Ally C.

Price: $149.99 (originally $209.99)


*THE* leak-proof, dishwasher-safe Bentgo bento lunch box for 30% off to revolutionize the school lunch game. The compartments make it easy to pack perfectly portioned lunches (and to ensure those cookies don’t get soggy from the mac ‘n’ cheese).

Promising review: “We use these boxes daily for my 2- and 3-year-old! They work great to pack a little snack in (which we often do for car rides) or to pack an entire lunch in. The different compartments allow for providing a variation of foods. We use fairly large whole grain bread so an entire sandwich does not fit in (usually 3/4). I do wish that spot was a wee bit bigger to fit an entire sandwich. But with that said, we own three of these and also a Bentgo Fresh box, which does fit the whole sandwich. Customer service is also amazing. First of all, I think a two-year warranty is fantastic. One of our Bentgo kids boxes somehow broke at a really weird spot making it not latch properly. I reached out to Bentgo and with just providing a picture, they sent out a brand new box! All in all I highly recommend. If you have a kid with a larger appetite, also look in to the Bentgo Fresh as it’s slightly larger.” —Sam

Price: $27.99 (originally $39.99; available in eight colors — don’t forget to clip the $5 off coupon for this price)


A National Geographic fossil dig kit for 32% off to encourage their inner paleontologist with 15 REAL fossils they can carefully excavate — including a trilobite, an ammonite, and a mosasaur tooth — with a magnifying glass, chisel, and brush.


Promising review: “My granddaughter loved this. She loved digging for the different gems and fossils buried. It is messy but we found if you spray it with water often it helped loosen and make it easier to dig. The product that the gems are hidden in is like a wet drywall consistency.. very messy but worth the fun and excited for my granddaughter.” —Amazon Customer

Price: $16.99 (originally $24.99)


The 2nd Gen AirPods Pro for 20% off, which is perfect timing if it’s been on your teen’s birthday gift list for months. With active noise cancellation, spatial audio, three silicone tips for customized fit, and over 24 hours of listening time with the included case, the AirPods Pro 2 give you a *ton* of bang for your buck.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “First, I’d like to say I wear the ‘ear buds’ for about 4-5 hours every day regardless of the brand: gym, work, jogging, calls, etc. AirPods Pro were a defining product for Apple but the lack of battery life truly disappointed me. Apple did make over $12 billion in 2021 on AirPods Pro alone, just in that year. So, it’s a widely adopted and successful product. I’ve owned many others… and in my opinion, the first generation AirPods Pro set a standard for wireless earbuds. This new, 2nd generation has only improved upon what I thought was the best (for $250 ~). The AirPods Pro 2 take everything great about the first generation, refines and amplifies it, and demonstrates it proudly. I highly recommended these over every other product within the same price range. And now I have the battery life I always needed and desired!” —Justin

Price: $199 (originally $249)


Or second-gen AirPods for 23% off, because if you don’t care about the newer features, this is a good deal on the tried-and-true headphones — especially if your high school sophomore’s managed to misplace TWO different pairs somehow, but you know they love them enough it’s worth replacing them.

Promising review: “I bought these Apple AirPods as a backup. I love my original pair so much, that I want to have these for when my other pair goes bad or I lose them. They have wonderful sound and stay in my ears when running. You can’t go wrong with Apple products. I just love them!!” —Me

Price: $99.99 (originally $129)


Or a pair of wireless Bluetooth earbuds for up to 53% off if you’re not about to spend $100 on the fancy name brand. Reviewers say the sound quality is surprisingly good given the earbuds’ under-$25 price tag. And the battery life is equally amazing — you can listen for over six hours on a single charge (and get up to 30 hours of enjoyment with the charging case).

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “These headphones were a home run. I bought them for my husband to use at the gym. The battery lasts the entire three hours he works out and then some. The noise cancellation is phenomenal. They are truly wireless. The sound quality is astounding, and they don’t fall out of my husband’s ears while he runs (which is an issue he has had with all of his headphones in the past). They are the best headphones he has ever had.” —Synee

Price: $18.99+ (originally $39.99; available in five colors)


The fan-fave Silly Poopy’s Hide & Seek game for 24% off that’ll be perfect for those times when your kiddo is down for a round of their fave game but you’re way too tired to play. You can hide this toy and plop yourself on the couch while your child listens for sounds and clues to find the hiding place. It’ll be a gift for them, but really for you LOL.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review:My 6- and 3-year-olds are OBSESSED. They play for an hour, at least! Played with daily since we got it. When it’s my turn to hide, I make it tricky enough that I can actually be productive until it’s my turn again.” —Cara Lentz

Price: $9.89 (originally $12.99)


A light-up basketball that glows on impact for 42% off, to add a little fun and excitement to your driveway pickup games with your kids — and for a bit of a practical element when it rolls down to the street on accident after the sun goes down.

A hand holds up a FLASHCATCH basketball — it glows a bright red orange


It automatically shuts the light off after a period of time, so it doesn’t waste batteries! And it comes with an extra set of batteries, so you can play for ages. 

Promising review: “Looks awesome at night! My son loves to go out in the evenings and shoot with it. It is very bright. The lights come on as soon as he bumps it and shut off shortly after sitting still. Very happy. My son has been playing basketball in middle and high school and says this ball has a good feel to it.” —S. Campbell

Price: $28.98 (originally $34.99; clip the $10 off coupon to get the full discount!)


Select American Girl Wellie Wishers dolls for up to 31% off — including Ashlyn (the ballerina) Willa (the nature fairy), and Bryant (the dragon) — they’re all SO cute, and reviewers say children love to spend hours playing imaginative games with them!

amazon.com, Amazon

See the other American Girl dolls and accessories on sale here!

Promising review (for Bryant): “This is the most well made doll ever. Bought it for my son for Christmas and I am glad I invested. It’s expensive but it will be worth it when you see your child’s face light up. His hair is very well attached, his face isn’t creepy and every piece of his outfit is durable. He’s precious and I love him as much as my son. His tail and wings are detachable as well.” —Tiffany M

Prices: $45.49 (originally $65; each doll is at a separate listing — Ashlyn, Willa, and Bryant)


The Amazon 4K Fire TV Stick for 40% off that you can simply plug into your existing TV and stream all the shows, movies, and music you want at the push of a button. Yes, that means it can basically turn the upstairs TV into the smart TV your teen’s been wishing for!

Ad for new Fire TV Stick 4K listing compatible streaming services, showcasing remote and device


Use the voice button to find shows, launch apps, search for type of movie (“Alexa find suspense thrillers”) OR EVEN ORDER A PIZZA from Domino’s! And with this gen, you can control your TV and sound bar right from the remote too, and it even has preset buttons to open your favorite apps in one click.

Promising review: “I recently purchased the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K, and it has completely transformed my TV viewing experience. This streaming device is a must-have for anyone looking to upgrade their home entertainment system. The setup process was a breeze. The video quality is outstanding. The 4K resolution, along with support for HDR10+, brings a remarkable level of clarity and color depth to the content. Watching my favorite shows and movies has never been more immersive. Whether it’s fast-paced action scenes or beautifully shot landscapes, the detail is incredible. The Fire TV Stick 4K also offers a vast selection of streaming services, including Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, Hulu, and many more. The interface is user-friendly and makes it easy to find what I want to watch. I also love the integration with Alexa, which allows me to use voice commands to control the TV, search for shows, or even control smart home devices. Another great feature is the remote control. It’s ergonomically designed and has dedicated buttons for power, volume, and mute, which means I don’t have to juggle multiple remotes. Apps load quickly, and navigating through menus is smooth and lag-free. I’ve also noticed that the Wi-Fi connectivity is strong and stable, which is essential for streaming high-quality content.” —Tye

Price: $29.99 (originally $49.99)

You can also get 38% off the basic Amazon Fire TV Stick, which brings the price down to $24.99!


The new Beats Studio Pro headphones for 43% off — they feature active noise-canceling, personalized spacial audio, and up to *40* hours of battery life. This could be just the treat for your music-obsessed eighth grader that could also help them concentrate better on homework in noisy environments thanks to that ANC.

amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review: “My hair is on the ‘bigger’ side, so headphones tend to become uncomfortable after an hour or two of usage. However, these are so comfortable and light that I often forget I’ve got them on. I’m by no means an expert on this topic, but the sound quality these headphones provide is unreal. When listening to my favorite songs, I pick up on background instruments I was previously unable to. It’s just so amazing to be able to listen to music like this. The noise cancellation is also top tier. Even in a crowded room, noise just disappears with the press of a button. Transparent mode works extremely well, too. I love being able to hold a conversation while still being able to hear my music. I HIGHLY recommend these headphones for anyone looking for a more budget-friendly alternative to more pricy competitors.” —Shanae

Price: $199.95 (originally $349.99; available in four colors)


The mighty Bissell Little Green machine for 21% off that’ll become your new cleaning BFF the minute your flu-stricken second grader barfs on the carpet and this thing sucks up all the mess like it’s nothing. It also works wonders for pet stains!

Negesti Kaudo / BuzzFeed

Here’s BuzzFeed Shopping writer Negesti Kaudo’s take on the Little Green: “This thing is a miracle worker! I have a nine-month old chow chow puppy and we are just hitting the no-more-accidents-in-the-house phase of life 🙌 , but I had five months of poorly-cleaned stains from vomit and urine on my carpets that needed some serious power put behind them. I nabbed the Little Green on a discount during Fall Prime Day and a week later, my puppy threw up SEVEN times after a later dinner and very exciting round of the zoomies throughout the night. Long story short: this portable carpet cleaner removed every single stain, including older stains that I thought had set into the carpet and were a lost cause, and I learned I can use it on my couch from a previous vinegar and baking soda stain! If you have pets of children, I seriously recommend adding this portable cleaner to your arsenal. I wish it came with a storage bag because I literally take it to other people’s houses to tackle their stains. So satisfying!”

Price: $98 (originally $123.59)


An Oral-B Genius X Limited electric toothbrush (the lowest price I’ve seen!) for 25% off for an upgrade that will make your childs (and your!) dentist *sing* the next time y’all see them. It’s equipped with AI that works to instantly recognize your unique brushing style and adapt to guide you to your best, deepest clean, with up to 500% more plaque removed than a traditional manual toothbrush.

Promising review: “Amazing clean. I was at first hesitant to spend that much on a toothbrush but it’s worth every penny. It works at least 10x better than my $20 Oral B electronic toothbrush. The motion sensing is very cool and helpful. After just one brush my teeth feel almost like they do after a professional cleaning as opposed to how they felt after brushing with my cheap electronic toothbrush.” —Anne E La Perla

Price: $149.99 (originally $199.99; available in three colors) 


A 100-piece set of Picasso Tiles for 29% off, which reviewers say work with and are comparable to Magnatiles, for some extra bang for your buck *and* a sale on top of that.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “I wish I had known about these sooner! PicassoTiles are *exactly* like Magna-tiles but way more affordable. We just received the 100 tile set today – an early birthday gift for our soon-to-be-four-year-old. We have two sets of Magna-tiles – one with the grommets (purchased new last year) and one without (purchased second hand [no idea how old they are]). The PicassoTiles are the same weight and size as the MagnaTiles and have the same exact magnets. They do not have metal grommets, but the old MagnaTiles are indestructible, so I know that these will be too. And PicassoTiles are much prettier in my opinion, because they are slightly more translucent and have brighter colors. They integrate into the collection seamlessly. I highly recommend this product. And if you are considering buying any kind of magnetic tile toy for your child, I recommend purchasing as big a set a you can for versatility of play. Our son has played with these all day and night off and on every single day since we bought them last year. After integrating the new PicassoTile set, he hugged his enormous structure and declared them his favorite…twice. A wonderful toy!” —skater mom

Price: $39.99 (originally $56.65)


The Play-Doh Kitchen Creations set for 33% off so they can live out their GBBO dreams and “bake” tiny cakes, pies, cupcakes, cinnamon rolls, pizzas and whatever their little minds can dream up out of the six included fun colors!


In addition to the dough, it comes with a play oven that dings, a star mold, heart mold, and pie crust mold, a mini plate and utensils, a small rolling pin, and a cake, pie, cinnamon roll, muffin, and pizza mold.

Promising review: “This set keeps my kids entertained for a long time. It’s easy for them to use, the oven feature is a lot of fun. All of the other accessories are great too, lots to do with different shapes and “cooking”. And unlike some other play doh kits, there is minimal cleaning, the play doh doesn’t get stuck in the oven . Would highly recommend for kids 3+.” —M. Califano

Price: $19.99 (originally $29.99)


A single-serve Keurig coffee machine for 40% off since it’ll make the perfect amount of java those leave-the-house-at-7:30-a.m. high school mornings. This compact machine makes coffee in under one minute because it knows you need a second cup for yourself and a first cup to revive your sleepy teen.

reviewer image of the red Keurig machine on a kitchen countertop


Promising review: “Gotta love this Keurig!! Very easy to use and clean. Gives out the coffee you want every time. Like the different settings and is small enough that it doesn’t take up too much counter space. I use this every day and it has never failed me.” —M add

Price: $59.99 (originally $99.99; available in four colors)


A set of two produce-saver containers for 54% off to save you money (and unnecessary trips to the grocery store) by keeping produce fresher for longer — so it’ll actually be around when your kiddo genuinely asks for it and wants to eat fruit and veg — thanks to an air-tight seal that allows just the right amount of ventilation.

Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

These containers help keep your produce fresh by keeping moisture away. And they’re designed with a special vent filter, which you never have to replace, to regulate the carbon dioxide and oxygen flow to your produce.

Natalie Brown, an editor here at BuzzFeed, actually tried these containers for herself, and, well, you just gotta read her full Rubbermaid FreshWorks container review.

Promising review: “I ordered specifically for my cucumbers. So far, I have had great luck keeping my sliced cucumbers crispy and fresh in the container. The larger one has kept a precut salad mix perfect for a week. Wish I had more of these.” —J Case

Price: $12.49 (originally $26.99)

Grab a pack of three refill rolls for $24.83

Promising review: “My granddaughter was running us all out of printer paper with all her beautiful creations. I got this for her seventh birthday much to the relief of her parents! It’s got feet on the bottom and enough weight so it stays in place and it’s so easy to tear a page off. Thank you!” —Wooski

Price: $15.99 (originally $24.99)


The reviewer-fave Boudreaux’s Butt Paste for Sensitive Skin for 39% off because you know you’re going to go through the whole tub of diaper cream anyway. So might as well get the magic formula that helps prevent or vanish pesky diaper rash for a discount!

Woman packing a diaper bag with a container of Boudreaux's Butt Paste next to her


Promising review: “My grandson has very, very, VERY sensitive skin, so diaper rash is common regardless of how many times we change him. Other well known brands make it very uncomfortable for him during application as well as heartbreaking. Boudreaux’s Ointment for sensitive skin is a definite winner. No issues applying as it’s not thick like the pasty-peanut butter types. Buy this brand. There should be 6-stars for this stuff!” —Harry S. Balsak

Price: $12.79 (originally $20.99)


And a pack of 150 Pampers Swaddlers diapers — the kind with the ESSENTIAL blowout barrier and wetness indicator! — and 336 wipes for 20% off for the same reason: you know you’re gonna use them all and need to buy more, so why not get them on sale?


I’m linking to size 4, but they’re on sale for the same price in sizes 1–6 here!

Promising review: “The diapers are incredibly soft and gentle on my baby’s skin, providing excellent absorbency and a snug, comfortable fit. The wetness indicator is a helpful feature, making it easy to know when it’s time for a change. The Swaddlers have prevented any leaks or blowouts, ensuring my baby stays comfortable and dry. The Pampers Sensitive Wipes complement the diapers perfectly. They are thick, soft, and effectively clean while being gentle on sensitive skin. The pop-top packs are convenient, keeping the wipes moist and easy to dispense. This bundle has become a staple in our baby care routine, offering both quality and value.” —Nyfranco

Price: $55.10 (about $0.38 per diaper; originally $68.93)


Or if you (or your little one) prefer Huggies, a similar value pack of 140 diapers and 768 wipes for 20% off. Of course, these have the key little pocket to help prevent or at least contain blowouts as well!


Just like above, I’m linking to size 4, but they’re on sale for the same price in sizes n–7 here!

Promising review: “Love the stretch of Huggies. They go a lot further in my opinion than the weight listed so typically I can get through the rest of a box even when my son is sizing up.” —Jonathan Franklin

Price: $60.75 (about $0.43 per diaper; originally $75.94).


An EvenFlo all-terrain stroller wagon for 20% off that’ll work on the pavement, the beach, and other surfaces — key for summer, which is coming up fast. Oh, and it’ll help you cart quite a bit (including your kiddos).

the stroller with two toddlers in it


Promising review: “This was purchased on a whim after visiting the zoo one day and seeing all the fun wagons. We knew we were going to need one for when our kids outgrew the stroller, and after doing a lot of research and watching reviews, we settled on this one. It has been one of the best purchases we’ve made. The wheels are smooth, the sun shades work incredibly well, and with the mesh on the sides, we can keep the sun off our child’s head and they can still see around them. The extra storage bag is a great addition. We purchased the second seat for our infant and it works amazing well. The major downside is the tiny little cup holder and food tray you get with it. It’s not very sufficient compared to the tray you get without the seat. The wagon position is perfect for pulling uphill, and the stroller position is great for neighborhood walks. The only other issue I have, which isn’t really an issue, is that the front wheels WILL shake and wobble a lot unless there’s weight over the wheels. I ended up putting a 25 lb dumbbell in the front to keep that from happening and it works great. Overall, fantastic product. We are very happy with it!” —Andrew Shaum

Price: $319.99 (originally $399.99; available in two colors)


The Mattel Disney Princess Ultimate Castle for 45% off (making it under $100!) featuring a kitchen, a dining room, a vanity a bathroom, a swimming pool and slide, a spinning magic carpet, a bathroom complete with a pink shell clawfoot tub, a light-up clock tower, and more.

A Coway air purifier for up to 31% off because your entire family deserves to breathe cleaner air. It has a four-stage filtration system designed to remove 99.97% of particles in the air, including dust and odor-causing particles. There’s also a really cool LED that indicates how clean (or dirty!) your air is. I have one of these and can attest that it keeps my kitchen less dusty!

A black square air purifier


My colleague Melanie Aman says: “This was my Prime Day 2020 purchase, and I love it! I had been waking up with watery eyes and sniffles and desperately wanted some relief. I joked to my partner that this bad boy looks like an iPod shuffle…but its air-filtering capabilities are no laughing matter! Now, I wake up feeling refreshed instead of congested. Plus, I really feel like this air filter is able to detect changes in the air. Case in point: when I made fish a room away, the LED turned from blue (indicating good air quality) to red (indicating poor air quality), and the purifier jumped into action.”

Price: $159.51+ (originally $229.99; also available in white)


A smart thermostat for up to 29% off so you can control the temperature of your home from anywhere. Yes, that means you can turn the heat up before you get home from your vacation and won’t freeze the second you walk through the door.

Model adjusting temperature on Google Nest thermometer


Promising review:Within about two weeks of installation, this thermostat has already saved me big! I got a notice from it stating that my furnace had turned off unexpectedly many times and that I should check the unit for function. When I checked the furnace, I found that the previous owner of my house (purchased home in summer 2020 and had not used the heat until now) had never bothered to change the filter on the unit. This was causing a major airflow issue that could easily have caused premature furnace failure if left unattended. Thanks to the warning from this thermostat, I was able to fix the problem for the price of a new filter. Highly recommended!” —Mitch

A set of DEET-free mosquito-repelling bracelets for 23% off that you’ll wanna keep in stock for every outdoorsy adventure this summer. No more slathering your kids and yourself with sticky, stinky bug sprays!

amazon.com, amazon.com

Check out a TikTok of the mosquito-repelling bracelets in action.

Promising review: “I moved last year from southern California to North Carolina. Bugs of all types have always been attracted to me but the amount of bites I got last summer was WILD. Someone gave me one of these types of bracelets to use one day and it seemed to work SOOOOOO I decided to buy myself an arsenal to prepare for this summer. I read the reviews and about 99% of them had great results. I’ve only used this bracelet twice but both times I was outside and un-touched. Delivery was very quick so that was a plus. I’m not fond of the smell, I’m hyper sensitive to smells, but I’d rather have the odor than being chewed alive.” —Tracey Agopian

An Osmo Little Genius starter kit for up to 25% off because it makes learning fun. It connects to your iPad and teaches skills such as social-emotional cues, pre-drawing, problem solving, and experimentation while also requiring off-screen interaction and play for kids ages 3 to 5.

the contents of the kit, which include character pieces, alphabet pieces, and more


Promising review: “Got this for my 4-year-old niece who is glued to her iPad. I wanted her to have a more active way to play with it. Osmo’s Little Genius fits the bill. So far she’s loving the squiggles and ABC games, and I like that it takes action OFF the screen to play. Also nice that it kinda bridges a gap between kiddo’s desire to draw/write and the fined tuned motor skills necessary to do so that don’t come along til later. The pieces all seem well constructed and durable. Just a matter of keeping them in the little containers Osmo provides.” —Laura Liebman

Price: $80.49+ (originally $103.36+; available for iPad and Fire and with four or six games)


A splash-proof kids smartwatch for up to 49% off because it can take pics and record videos that your future YouTuber can edit with fun filters. It also includes free games, like one where your kiddo will be able to catch virtual monsters in the real world.

An adjustable-height tee-ball and baseball batting set for 44% off so they can practice their form and channel their inner Jackie Robinson — when you remove the tee to put it in baseball mode, it launches a ready-to-hit pitch when they step on one of the buttons on the base.

Plastic baseball set with collapsible bat, three balls, and 2-in-1 tee base


Promising review: “I love this t-ball set. The only issue is, it’s not for adults. It’s not a flaw with the product. But the strength of an adult swinging the bat is way different than a child. In short, I swung too hard and cracked the bat. Just let the kids play. I do want to say that this has held up better than thought. Sometimes when my child swings he misses the ball and hits the tee. I thought omg it’s done. But nope. It has definitely helped with his eye hand coordination. He’s 7 and he now doesn’t need the tee. We pop the balls up and he hits them. I don’t like the collapsible bat but it works for him.” —Erika

An LCD writing tablet for 33% off that your budding artist will adore. The best part? There’s no need to whip out messy markers or crayons (because let’s face it, they always lose them anyway). All your kiddo has to do is swipe the included pen to reveal a rainbow of colors.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review:This tablet has entertained my 4-year-old grandson for hours at a time. He loves that he can erase at will and that the drawings are multicolored. I highly recommend this item for 18 months old and up. I bought a pink one for our 18-month-old granddaughter, and she too is just enthralled with it and the ‘power’ she has to erase, create, erase, create! They loved them so much, that we bought another set of two different colors so that they would have them at home as well as at ‘Grammy’s.'” —Kindle Customer Red Heart

Promising review: “If you are considering getting this pool, go for it. We are SO glad we did. I caught it on sale and it was seriously one of the best investments I’ve ever made. Our community pool is 1.5 miles from the house so it’s not very convenient. The kids use this EVERY DAY. The filter I thought would be crap since the ones that come with usually are… However this one does a great job. I turn it on at night and let it run til morning. I have to rinse out the cartridge about once every 5 days with a pressure attachment on the hose. (haven’t bought a new cartridge yet and I’ve had the pool about a month) I use a floater thing with 3 of the 3″ chlorine tabs in it and that lasts about 3 weeks with HEAVY rain (Florida) with it being out in the direct sunlight it does something to the inflatable ring, I notice it getting soft after a few days and I refill it, so plan on keeping an electric air pump on hand because it works better if the ring is filled to capacity. Overall we are extremely satisfied and I would give it a 10 star if I could. Even the adults are thoroughly enjoying it.” —Emily Jo Howard

Promising review: “OK I don’t often write reviews but I had to say that these sheets DO keep you cool and comfy. I have several sets of fancy sheets and these give all of them a run for their money.

Promising review: “I am the aunt of five nephews (ages 3, 4, 8, 11, 21) and mother of a 3-year-old boy. I was hesitant to purchase this item as the price is a bit steep. It came almost fully charged so my 11-year-old nephew and I were able to test out it immediately. Upon opening the package the guns and vests were securely encased in foam. My nephew thought the looked great. Instruction were quick and easy to read and understand. We powered up the vest, then the gun as instructed — everything synced nicely. When the gun spoke my nephew’s mind was completely blown.🤯 I strapped a vest to my nephew when my 3-year-old son came in the room so of course I had to suit him up as well. Guns and vest were light weight and size went well on the 11-year-old as well as the 3-year-old. So easy to use my 3-year-old had no problem reloaded and shooting. The accuracy and distance for gun to target IS GREAT! My son and nephew and myself had such a great time with this set, I got online and purchase another four-player set! I‘m the aunt that brings activities to the parties…bounce house, splash pads, tunnels, trampoline, bumper body suits, so when its time to throw a party for the kids; no need to rent anything!! This laser tag set is a FREAKIN’ FANTASTIC addition to my collection.” —Rebeccah Walker

A pink play tent with gauze curtains for 47% off with included star-shaped fairy lights to engage their imaginations — it can be a palace, a rocket ship, a camping tent, or just a cozy place to read!

Child's play tent set up indoors with patterned pillows and colorful balloons around it


Promising review: “SO cute! We were so pleasantly surprised by just how great this tent is! We bought it for our daughter’s 2-year bday but our 4-year-old son immediately was like, “we can both play in here, right?” He is 42” tall and can stand in the middle without stooping. It took me about 20 minutes to set up, hardest part was the pointy star lights get tangled and catch on the mesh so you have to hang them carefully.” —Alexis

A Snap Circuits DIY electricity kit for 51% off — it comes complete with project cards to guide them on how to build their own light-up police siren, alarm clock, two-speed fan, AM radio, sound-activated switch, and SO much more.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “So I bought one of these for my daughter and nephew (both 6–7 years old) and they both enjoy building the different projects offered in the booklet. The best description I can give is that it is similar to Legos but for electrical components and it is effortless for them to assemble the various projects. The booklet comes with simple projects to more complex options so that they do not get bored easily with repetitive projects. They can build anything from a small light with a switch to a speaker with different frequencies and sounds. Overall I’d say this is fun for kids and worth $40 and it is educational so a win-win for my wallet and for kids who have inquiring minds.” —Paul

A tiered dress for 20% off, so they have just the right thing to wear to their friend’s fancy tea party birthday, or for anytime they want to get a little fancy.

amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review: “I ordered this for my seven-year-old granddaughter for her birthday party. The photo online shows it as full and flowing as the young model twirls around in the dress. After it arrived, and she tried it on, she mimicked the pose, and the dress indeed did look as lovely on her as it did in the pictures. The color is vibrant without being garish, and the material is soft, linen gauze material with lace trimmings. It is lightweight enough to be comfortable in the summer months, with lining underneath . It doesn’t stick to the body like dresses without a lining will do. I highly recommend this dress if the image online appeals to you.” —S.A. Hudgens

Price: $23.99 (originally $29.99; available in sizes 6 years–14years and 21 colors/patterns )
