All-Star Hot Dog Maker

For weekend lunches or after-school snacks, hot dogs are the go-to for plenty of kids. Sharper Image’s All-Star hot dog maker offers a sleek look and the ability to cook four frozen hotdogs and toast requisite buns in 12 to 15 minutes — all with controls easy enough for kids to operate. We call this one a home-run for parents and children alike. $59.99, Sharper Image.

ThermaCell Patio Lantern

Summertime in Texas means any evening outdoors is out of the question — that’s when mosquitoes are at their blood-sucking worst. You can trust ThermaCell’s Patio Lantern to create a 15-foot-by-15-foot safe zone by releasing a mosquito repellent into the air. The replaceable mats offer four hours of protection each, and the butane cartridge necessary to heat them lasts for 12 hours. Add a sleek look with four AA-battery-powered LED lights, and you’ve got a welcome addition to any patio activity. $31.99, ThermaCell.

PB Teen Backpacks

With an unusual offering of designs and a sturdy framework to hold even the heaviest of textbooks, Pottery Barn Teen’s lineup of backpacks is sure to please even the pickiest of future designers. We love the collection of designs and multiple styles of packs the interior design giant has to offer, from rolling bags to over-the-shoulder packs made for the kid who likes to tote everything. $45.50–$89.50, PB teen.
