Lego Boost 

If you want to give your kid a surefire skill she'll need to excel in any career she might pursue in 15-20 years, teach her how to code. "But my daughter's only 7," you'll say.  "Shouldn't I just buy her a doll or something?" NOPE.  Trust—when America becomes the United States of Facebook, you'll be really glad you invested in this Lego Boost Set ($160, LEGO), which features over 800 pieces that your kid can use to build whatever she can think up, and a companion app that teaches basic coding that will allow her to bring her creations to life, even making them move and talk. Net/net: if the robots are going to take over, you'll be glad to have a kid that knows how to build an control them, right?  Now THAT'S a smart investment.

Taco Booties

If you have a baby, it's important to start indoctrinating your mini-me when they're young.  Do you think a three-year-old girl decided that she likes Nirvana on her own?  Nope.  It's because Nirvana is dad's favorite band, and that three-year-old girl thinks everything that dad likes is awesome (at least for the next 7-9 years).

So, if you're really into Mexican food and want your kid to enthusiastically embrace everything that Taco Tuesday provides, start 'em young, namely with these adorable Taco Booties ($25, Uncommon Goods). They'll be the hit of any Mexican restaurant you frequent, and you better believe they're Cinco de Mayo appropriate. Que linda!

Taco Dreams Mobile

When you have a baby, you have a lot of hopes and dreams for them, but in general, you probably have a desire to have them be just like you, or, at least a little like you (unless you hate yourself).  Having a kid is at least partially an exercise in vanity, right?  I mean, come on, the world's population is way too high, so it's not like you're procreating to ensure the survival of the human race—you're doing it because you want to point at a kid that looks like you and acts like you and say, "I made that."    

So, maybe you have a kid and you hope that he also grows up to love muscle cars and Mexican food.  Good news: when the kid is little, you have 100% influence over him, so you can start sowing the seeds of creating your own little mini-me early.  This Taco Dreams Mobile ($48, Uncommon Goods) will almost certainly create a junior guacamole lover.  Who can stare up at tiny tacos, avocados, and bottles of hot sauce without wanting to dig in?  Nobody.

Animal Swim Caps 

Swimming lessons can be hard for a kid with an aversion to water, and if you're NOT the kind of parent who's technique is to just throw your kid into the pool and let them figure it out themselves, you're probably looking for a way to make the experience more fun and less scary.  With these fun Animal Swim Caps ($10 each, Finis), your kid will be the talk of her local Howard Johnson's swim class, and maybe give her some incentive to get into the pool. Godspeed.

[GIFTED] Started from the Belly Onesie


 

One of the unique pleasures of having a new baby is being able to dress it up in whatever the hell you want, and because of that, there's no shortage of hi-larious onesies for babies to act as living billboards for their parents to amuse themselves and the people around them with.  This Started from the Belly Onesie ($27, Skreened) certainly fits the bill, and everyone will laugh and laugh and laugh and the baby wearing it will develop a complex.
