Slime Soap

What better way to get the kids presentable? New Soapy Slime Body Cleanser from Avon Kids. The scent reminds us of a Jolly Rancher. ($10)

Set-of-Three Gloves

Um, for us, not the kids. We too often lose just one, so this Pair and a Spare set from the Museum of Modern Art is brilliant! ($32)

Cool Paper Straws

The craze for biodegradable straws has led to a flood of fun (sturdy!) paper designs. With cute characters or images resembling bamboo stalks, birch trees, and candy canes, these (from Kikkerland, $3 for 12 animal straws or $9 for 144 printed straws) make every glass of milk feel festive.

A Book About Civic Duty

Little ones may be amazed that women got the vote only 98 years ago. (TBH, we were!) Take your kid with you to the polls, then read Bold & Brave, by Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, with illustrations by Maira Kalman. Well done, sister suffragettes! ($19)
