My kids hate flip-flops and we live near the beach. I fork up the cash for Crocs to save my sanity. These robot light-up shark Crocs are preschooler-friendly — they're not too scary, but they're not baby-ish either. Also, robot sharks that light up. Come on. (Crocs, $50)

Terrifying shark backpack

Confession: I'm actually really scared of sharks. Blame it on my Florida upbringing. Sometimes sharks eat people here. As a result, I think this shark backpack is terrifying. But your tween will probably think it's amazing. (Mojo Backpacks, $48)
