But this year, we're equally excited about the comeback of Polly Pocket, as well as some newer trendy toys from Little Live Pets, Pomsie and Grumblies. Hold onto your pocketbooks and ready your wallets, because Walmart is stocked up with the most in-demand toy brands and products this year. Peruse our top kids toy choices below.
From pint-size furniture to decorations that double as playtime favorites, here are some of the best playroom ideas for toddlers
So you've got the Playstation 4; now, which games are you supposed to get? Picking out the best video games for kids can be challenging—that's why we've rounded up the top PlayStation kids games and ranked them by age appropriateness and ease of play.
As a child, did you pretend to live in a castle by arranging old blankets over the couch and chairs? There was something so fun about sitting underneath mom's old sheets. Now think how much more awesome it would be to actually have a bed that looks like a mini house! Enter the toddler house bed, also known as a Montessori floor bed.
These beds are exactly what they sound like: Picture a house-shaped frame above the mattress, complete with windows, a door and a kitchen (OK, just kidding about the kitchen). But now picture your little angel's precious head resting underneath one of these magical creations.
While this may seem like a cool, new way to sleep, the floor bed concept actually dates back to the early 20th century teaching philosophy called the Montessori Method, which focuses on placing everything a child needs to learn and explore at the child's level. So, by placing their bed on the floor, you give children independence and a chance to learn on their own terms.
Here, we've rounded up some of our favorite toddler house beds that are ready to take up residence in dreamland.
So, your baby wants a fur baby, but they're just not ready for the real deal? Don't fret — get them a FurReal Pet!

These fuzzy favorites were tops last year, and with their superior range of options, sound-and-movement combinations and adorable features, we predict they'll charm you — and Santa too! The FurReal pack includes cuties like StarLily the Unicorn, Ricky the Trick-Lovin' Pet, Ivory the Playful Tiger and many more. Amazon and Walmart both have FurReal Pets in stock at the moment, but some of the best-sellers are getting shopped-and-adopted fast. We say maybe don't wait for Black Friday or Cyber Monday, especially since you can get such sweet deals on these FurReal Pets now.

It can seem daunting at first to try and determine what defines "must-have" versus "meh, maybe not" on-the-go gear.
