Pint-sized kitchens and other pretend play appliances rank high on holiday lists, but what about a washing machine that might actually encourage kids to put their dirty clothes in the right place? File under funny, cute and smart.

This CB2 washing machine hamper is a faux front loader. The screenprinted drum and controls give kids plenty of cycle options. Reviewers laud the hamper's size, portability, and the clever visual reminder for kids to put dirty laundry where it belongs. It's $29.95 at CB2 and currently eligible for free shipping.
