UV Skinz (price varies depending on item)

Kids and adults alike should never leave the house without sun protection. UV Skinz is a fun, fashionable protective sunwear line blocks 98% of the sun’s UVA and UVB rays. It is so easy to forget to put sunscreen on your kids — or reapply sunscreen — every time they go out to play, but UV Skinz will keep your kids safe from the sun all day, every day!

ChildMinder SMART CLIP SYSTEM ($70)

We know how jam-packed summer schedules can get and how easy it may be to get distracted when you’ve gotten out of your car. No one ever thinks they’re going to be “that” parent who forgets their child in a hot car, but sadly dozens of parents do just that every year. The ChildMinder SMART CLIP SYSTEM reminds drivers with an alarm 8 seconds after the parent or caregiver has moved more than 15 feet from the child in his/her safety seat.

Fit Fruit & Veggie Wash (prices vary depending on size)

One of the best parts of the summer months is all of those delicious fruits and veggies to enjoy on picnics and family BBQs. Make sure your fresh produce is fit to eat by using FIT Fruit and Vegetable wash, which can eliminate up to 98% of pesticides, wax and other residues as compared to washing with water alone.

Fohawx  ($20)

Got a biking or boarding daredevil in the family? Inspired by a 7-year-old who refused to wear his helmet because it just wasn’t cool, the mission of the moms behind Fohawx is to provide a head-protecting product that is also hip enough to wear. From long flowing strips fashioned like dreadlocks, to wacky and colorful punk shapes and high-top mohawks, Fohawx are an embellishment that kids can add to any safety helmet. Fohawx come in five fun styles.

Multisport Journey Clothing  (price varies depending on item)

It’s never too early to show babies how to explore the outdoors, but keeping baby safe from the sun this summer is a must. Multisport Journey’s apparel makes sure they are comfortably dressed in moveable wear that protects them from the sun when they do crawl around in the grass, or splash in little waves at the lake. Multisport’s hats and onsie creepers are 100% brushed and organic cotton that play well with nature as baby does the same.

Pami Pocket  ($15)

When kids go to camp or on an outing without you, you’ll want to make sure their personal belongings like their mobile phone, identification card, and money are safe, too! The Pami Pocket will keep their personal belongings safe, in one place, and close to them. Made of a soft, neoprene fabric, your kiddos’ belongings will stay dry and dirt- or sand-free as it hangs conveniently and securely from the shoulder. Available in cool black or posh pink.

Name Bubbles (price varies depending on label)

Allergies are not to be taken lightly. For care when you can’t be there, Name Bubbles Allergy Labels, an iParenting Media Award Winner, will ensure that your child’s lifesaving information stays with them at summer camp, summer school, or at a friend’s house for the weekend. Name Bubbles are unique waterproof labels that can be used to mark lunch kits, clothes, backpacks, folders, laptops, cellphones and sports equipment. Each Name Bubbles Allergy Labels notifies caregivers that there is a condition to be aware of.
