Unlike a Christmas birthday, which can get easily overlooked during the holiday commotion, a Halloween birthday party is a special unicorn — much like your little princess, superhero or monster. And just like those peanut butter cups you're giving out to trick-or-treaters, Halloween and birthdays are "two great things that go great together!" No need to rack your brain for some far-out theme — costumes and candy are a given. But you can still flex your creativity and choose unique decorations, invitations and much more to make your kiddo's Halloween birthday party a howling success. Keep scrolling for some frightfully fun inspiration.
It's easy for parents to get spooked trying to choose the perfect Halloween costumes for their little ones. Between the overwhelming choices (princess or witch? superhero or villain?) to the barrage of opinions from their little boys and ghouls, deciding on the perfect costumes for kids can be, well, tricky. But with a little help from the Happiest Place on Earth, we've conjured up the best Disney Halloween costumes for kids this year. Whether it's her favorite Disney Junior character (you're singing the theme song now, aren't you?) or his beloved Pixar pal, here's some supercalifragilistic inspiration to make your little hero or magical creature's Halloween dreams come true.

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.
Your little baby isn't a baby anymore! Make sure you're prepared for the toddler years with gear and toys you didn't realize you needed for children aged one to three.

Target was a go-to for the trendiest Christmas toys last year, and you can expect even more of the same great Black Friday deals and Cyber Monday sales on kids' favorite brands in 2018. From Air Hogs to Peppa Pig and PAW Patrol playsets, it won't be hard to fulfill your child's wish list with a shopping trip to Target.

There are times when we don't want glitter or ruffles or confusing designs splattered all over our kids' clothes. That's why we love Primary. Their clothes are basic and simple and can be worn over and over again. Another reason we love Primary? They're also making Halloween easy by inspiring parents to take matters into their own hands to create clever and adorable DIY Halloween costumes without having to pick up a needle and thread. Best of all, the costumes can have a second life—the hoodie your little guy wore for his dragon costume can be the same hoodie he wears to school the following week — minus the scales, of course. Scroll to see our favorite Primary DIY costume picks, along with details on how to make them and where to buy the essential pieces.

The fur is flying again this holiday season! Pomsies, the fluffy interactive toys that were a huge hit last year, are once again topping the lists of the best Christmas toys for kids in 2018 and selling out fast. Pomsies—as most parents already know—are petite, supercute fluff balls that wrap around kids' wrists, hair, clothing or backpacks, and have eyes that light up and change color, depending on their mood. The collection of in-demand virtual pets (move over, Fingerlings!) is mostly made up of kitties such as Pomsies Sherbert, but the pom-pom pack also includes Pomsies unicorn Luna, Pomsies dragon Zoey and Pomsies koala Sydney. Both Amazon and Walmart currently have Pomsies in stock, but they're going quickly (so maybe don't wait for those Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals). Here are some of the most popular Pomsies to shop right now, plus where to buy them.
