AS A DAD, you have likely acquired a few virtues: selflessness, compassion, patience, flexibility, tact, patience, tolerance, reliability, and have we mentioned patience?

While worthwhile, these character assets can only take a father so far. Selflessness is well and good—until your infant is wailing yet again at some wee hour of the morning due to Mother-Theresa-knows-what. All the compassion on the planet won’t stop your toddler from a total meltdown if you’re foolishly found snack-less on a long car trip. No amount of tolerance can prepare you for the strange and distant alien your kid will transmute into during puberty.

Which is why even if your #1 Dad mug is un-ironic, you need help. You need something beyond virtues. You need tools. You need ways to take care of your baby (and yourself) after a rough sleepless night. You need snacks—so many snacks—to keep blood sugar levels in happy mode. And you need venues to connect with your pre-teens (no, really it’s possible) even if, yes, that means buying them toys.

There are minivan-loads of these tools out there—and too many of them are cheap and ineffective. That’s why we contacted experts—from registered dietitians to cookbook authors to fitness die-hards—around the world of dad-dom for their family-tested recommendations on the best gear for fathers.

Here’s your list of the 30 best tools for being a better dad—and have way more fun doing it.
