Timing is everything when it comes to taking a toddler’s temperature—the less time the better. Sixty seconds feels like an eternity when you’ve got a wiggle worm in your arms, but 10 seconds? That’s more like it.


On sale for $15 (normally it’s closer to $20), Kinsa’s “Smart Stick” thermometer connects to your iPhone or Android phone and gets a reading in about 10 seconds (so Kinsa promises). The free Kinsa iOS/Android app can track temperature histories for multiple family members, and it even comes with a bubble-popping game to keep little ones distracted while you’re getting a reading.
