Parenting can be overwhelming enough, but throw in all of the products you're told you need to buy and you may find yourself going down the rabbit hole.

How We Tested

We received over 450 applications across all product categories designed for babies, toddlers, kids of all ages, and their caregivers. Our team of experts — i.e. scientists, engineers, editors and more — vetted each application on criteria around innovation, problem-solving capabilities and value, then evaluated the top contenders in person. These winners include hot new innovations that have just hit the market, plus tried and true products that have stood the test of time.
