When it comes to kid inventions, there’s a fine line between brilliant and cray. From a piggyback-ride-helper to gaming sneakers, here’s the stuff that caught our eyes. Whether they’re of any use to your family—well, we’ll let you be the judge.

Mood Lighting

Potty training at night is not one of the parenthood’s highest moments. But maybe, just maybe it can be with this motion activated toilet bowl light that softly glows (in one of eight shades) as your little one approaches to do their business. No more scary bathroom trips. No more miss-fires.

Available at thegrommet.com, $19.95.
