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.

They would get into mischief together and we would laugh at their crazy adventures. My children thought we should share the stories with others and so our first story, The Search for the Yummie Berries was published in 2017. What stories inspired you? I was inspired by the works of C.S. Lewis, Berenstain Bears, and Adventures in Odyssey audio drama to name a few. What message does this story convey to young readers? The story of lifelong friendship and trust that Lion and the Bear have is something special. In today's world, I thought my kids needed to have fun and laughter, but also understand there is a serious side to making choices that have both good and bad consequences. read more
Clover and the Twins: The search for the Cloverleaf Labrador dogs This Labrador Dog Story begins with Channel and Bezel Sini, ten-...year-old spokesgirls for Dogs Forever - a Dog rescue. They knew their involvement in an advertising campaign for homeless dogs would be exciting. But not until they adopted a feisty dog, a labrador named Clover did they realize just what a rollercoaster ride it would be. One night prior to the start of the campaign tour, the twins are awakened by Clover talking in her sleep and making running motions with her legs. Bezel and Channel wake up Clover who explains that she was separated from her dog family on Christmas Eve when a terrifying outlaw she calls Red Eyes tried to capture them in their home in the Chicago trainyard. Clover was successful in luring Red Eyes away from her family, but in the process she hopped on a freight train headed for New York City. The girls eventually discover that Clover is one of the Cloverleaf Dogs, a line of dogs who, legend has it, rescued people and pets during the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. The Dogs Forever advertising campaign serves two purposes for Clover and the twins. The first is Dogs Forever’s goal of raising awareness about homeless dogs. And the second is more personal. When they get to the last destination, Chicago, Bezel and Channel have the personal goal of helping Clover find her dog family. What surprises and frightens Clover and the twins right out of the gate is that they are followed from city to city on the tour by a man in the crowds. As it turns out, Red Eyes did not give up when Clover escaped from him in the Chicago trainyard, and he is determined to capture her again. read more
