In our professional opinion, there are more than a few Prime Day sales that parents will want to check out. But if there’s one things parents famously do not have, it’s an abundance of time, especially for deal hunting.
That’s where we come in. We’ve rounded up the best deals so far on what parents might want, from the Kindle Kids to an Echo Dot the whole family can enjoy. Admittedly, the pickings are pretty slim this year — a lot of the strollers, high chairs, and toy “markdowns” we’re seeing have actually been sitting at their “discounted prices” for months. (Or worse, they’ve gotten pricier.)
We’ve made sure to include only deals that are truly deals, and while just a few notable ones have popped up early, we’ve got a feeling that by Prime Day’s official start on July 12, a few more will be added to our list.
You want to know that you can reliably keep an eye on your little one while they rest. HelloBaby has some of the most popular baby monitors on Amazon. This one comes with a five-inch LCD screen for easy viewing, and a night vision mode that multiple customer reviews noted stood up, even in pitch darkness.
What better way to minimize your kids’ screen time (or at least encourage a good kind of screen time) than by fostering a love of reading? The Kindle Kids is just like a grown-up Kindle, but with a few added child-friendly features, including Amazon Kids+, where there are tons of age-appropriate titles. Sure, your kid could also enjoy some ebooks on one of those discounted Fire tablets below, but they’ve been available at that sale price a few times already this year.
Looking for ways to make family game night more fun? Pictionary Air won’t cost you a ton, but it’s a great twist on a well-loved classic. Instead of using a marker and dry erase board, you draw your image in the air and watch as it appears onscreen.
Any parent knows that the best dinners are the quickest and easiest dinners. A 10-function Instant Pot makes cooking and clean up simple. The 6.5-quart basket can make enough servings for up to six people. Instant Pot is a brand that knows what they’re doing, and this model in particular is brand new, so it won’t be outdated anytime soon.
