Self-care standouts

Brush local

Adorable, affordable and altruistic, MamaP’s handcrafted toothbrushes are made with compostable bamboo handles, recyclable nylon bristles and non-toxic paint. A portion of sales proceeds go to support worthy causes, from saving the bees to ocean conservation to LGBTQ youth services. The MamaP Equality kids bamboo toothbrush, $14 for a set of 2, is available locally at Seattle’s zero-waste grocery store Scoop Marketplace and Danger on Bainbridge Island. 

Stamp of approval

Kids love nail polish, even if parents don’t love the mess it creates. The Cool Maker Go Glam Nail Stamper (regularly priced at $24.99 on Amazon) is a compact kit that lets your polish-loving kids enjoy the nail art trend while keeping the mess to a minimum. (Ages 8 and older)

Catch and release

Sometimes coaxing a reluctant toddler into the tub means upping your bath-toy game. Munchkin Fishin' Bath Toy ($8.99 on features a working fishing pole and magnets strong enough to last through hundreds of tub sessions. (Ages 24 months and older)

Truth bomb

Bath bombs — molded balls of baking soda, citric acid and essential oils — turn tub time into an effervescent celebration of scent and color. But at $7–$10 a pop, they’re a splurge. A bath-bomb-making kit comes complete with molds, all-natural ingredients and instructions for whipping up custom spheres of fizzy fun at home.
