The bathroom is where we start and end our day. If it's a fun and welcoming space, morning routines run smoother and bath time is a breeze. Parents don't have to dedicate their single-bathroom home to a youthful theme, but making it appeal to children will engrain the importance of self-care and hygiene at an early age. Here are 10 kid-friendly ideas for decorating a bathroom that everyone will love.
Scratch "cuddly pets" off your Christmas toy list and snag one of these hilariously ferocious monsters instead. Grumblies are the fuming counterparts to Skyrocket Toys' sweet Pomsies. Each character has its own personality and design, plus over 40 fierce sounds and reactions. Tremor, Hydro, Bolt and Scorch will be your kid's best friend — until the fiery creature reaches full-on meltdown mode, of course. A Grumblies' short-fuse is something every parent and child knows a little bit about. These hot-headed and mischievous electronic plush toys are a major toy trend for kids this Christmas, so you might not want to wait for Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. Buy one (or the whole group!) and get early savings from Amazon and Walmart now.
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.
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.
It's about that time: Ice, ice baby! There's a chill in the air, the winter months are upon us and ice skating rinks across the country are opening their gates. This, of course, keeps kids busy outside with friends while parents are bustling around buying holiday gifts, readying the house for guests and more. Ice skating is not only a great sport but also one of the best outdoor activities and winter weather pastimes for families. Whether your kid is a beginner or a star athlete, a boy or a girl, a figure skater or a hockey player, or just having fun with friends at the local frozen pond, here are the coolest ice skate styles from Amazon, Target, L.L. Bean and Urban Outfitters that any kid will covet.
Walmart recently released its top contenders for best Christmas toys of 2018, just in time for Black Friday deals and Cyber Monday sales.

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.
Leopold Classic Library is delighted to publish this classic book as part of our extensive collection. As part of our on-going com...mitment to delivering value to the reader, we have also provided you with a link to a website, where you may download a digital version of this work for free. Many of the books in our collection have been out of print for decades, and therefore have not been accessible to the general public. Whilst the books in this collection have not been hand curated, an aim of our publishing program is to facilitate rapid access to this vast reservoir of literature. As a result of this book being first published many decades ago, it may have occasional imperfections. These imperfections may include poor picture quality, blurred or missing text. While some of these imperfections may have appeared in the original work, others may have resulted from the scanning process that has been applied. However, our view is that this is a significant literary work, which deserves to be brought back into print after many decades. While some publishers have applied optical character recognition (OCR), this approach has its own drawbacks, which include formatting errors, misspelt words, or the presence of inappropriate characters. Our philosophy has been guided by a desire to provide the reader with an experience that is as close as possible to ownership of the original work. We hope that you will enjoy this wonderful classic book, and that the occasional imperfection that it might contain will not detract from the experience. read more
