After an exhausting month of shopping and planning winter break activities, is there anything more rewarding than the look of wonderment and pure joy on your child's face on Christmas morning? Bright eyes and wide smiles will make all the holiday hustle and bustle worthwhile! In the meantime, here are a few more things to tack onto your to-do list to make Christmas morning a little more magical for you and your family.
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.
Pokémon video games are a classic favorite for kids and parents alike. The games center around fictional creatures that can be trained for battle and evolve into bigger, better versions. Pokémon games feature only mild cartoon violence, are rated E for everyone and are compatible with Nintendo gaming consoles and Android or iOS devices.
Fingerlings were one of the hottest toys last holiday season. In fact, they were so popular that Fingerlings Minis and even Fingerlings keychains soon followed. But this year, Fingerlings HUGS are at the top of every kid's wish list and one of the best Christmas toys of 2018. The adorable interactive plushies feature long arms that can wrap around your kid for a cuddle, and they also give kisses, giggle, repeat after your child and — whoops! — pass gas. The collection includes animals such as a unicorn and sloth, but we have to say that Fingerlings monkeys Boris and Bella might just be the cutest toys ever. While you'll likely find sweet Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals on these cute critters on toy store shelves across the country, there are even better deals — and exclusive animals! — available online at Amazon, Walmart and Target now. So, stop arguing with your little one about whether they're getting a real puppy or kitten, and tell them Santa might just deliver a monkey, sloth or unicorn pal instead! Shop the Fingerlings collection below.
Most kids love video games — and most parents wish their kids would spend more time learning. Why not the best of both worlds? These educational video games for kids of all ages will help your little ones build usable skills like math, history, language, problem-solving and more!

Iconic brands like Nerf and LEGO were at the top of the list last year, but save room in your shopping cart for the latest and best new kids toys, from Fingerlings to Hatchimals to L.O.L. Surprise and more. Check out our favorite toys to buy from Amazon below.
Does wearing a matching family pajama set for the holidays just sound like something your home crew would so do? Whether it's for the holiday card, the grandparents or Instagram, this is a Christmas trend the whole clan can get behind — and then get into bed!

We've scoured through all the family pajama set reviews out there on every site from Target to Amazon to Nordstrom and can say with confidence that these cozy Disney, Harry Potter, Rudolph and Christmas-themed sets are, well, the cat's pajamas.

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 imaginative, interactive plush animals continue their reign as one of the top-selling Christmas toys for kids in 2018. 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.

Excerpt from On the Eve: A TaleIn comparison with him his companion looked an old man, and no one who observed his position could ...ever have imagined that he was enjoying himself, and was thoroughly at his ease. He was lying in the most awkward of postures: his head, which was broad at the top, but gradually sharpened towards the chin, sat awkwardly on his long neck: there was an awkward ness in the way he dangled his hands, in his huge body tightly squeezed into a short black surtout, in his long feet and gawky legs, which were exactly like the hind legs of a dragon-fly. And yet with all this he bore about him the signs of an educated man; there was an air of gentlemanliness in his very awkwardness, and his face, though far from handsome, and even somewhat comical, wore the expression of thought and of goodness. His name was Andrew Petrovitch Bersieneff; that of his companion, the light-haired young man, was Paul Jakovlevitch Shoubine.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
