We like this tent because it zips up in back for wind protection.

Play Mate

Pull this cute beach buddy apart and voila! You've got a rake, sieve, shovel, mold, funnel, and buckets.

Shady Place

We love this cute kids' chair because it gives your little one some extra protection from the sun.

Wander Where?

Feel extra secure in a crowd with the Toddler Tracker -- clip it on a kid, and it beeps when you hit the remote.

Roll On

Load up the Wonder Wheeler with all your stuff -- it's so lightweight you can pull it with one hand.
$30; BJ's Wholesale Club

Girlz in the Hood

Isn't this cover-up sweet? The terry-cloth poncho's made from UPF 50 (ultra-violet protection factor) fabric and comes in its own pail.
