Happy summer solstice, everyone! And… Happy Prime Day!!! Yes, Amazon’s summertime Prime Day is back, so you know what it means… time to stock up on on all the things. From baby gear and toys to skincare and electronics, we sorted through them all and picked the best ones, in our professional (ahem) opinions. And gang, “this one’s for the parents.” Hurry up because when supplies sell out, the deal is gone.
