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.
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.
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.
Strolling through the mall and browsing online for tween clothing can frustrate any parent, especially when you like something your kid doesn't or vice versa. Instead of getting swept up in an argument, check out these six brands that have everything you need to outfit your young teen in fashion-forward attire you both can agree on.
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. 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.
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!
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.
Whether you want a top-of-the-line console like the Xbox One X, a handheld video game like the Nintendo Switch or a fun, simple throwback game system like Super Nintendo, these are the best video game consoles for kids.
What's better than combining bath time and playtime? How about adding these bath toys in the mix. They make bathtime a breeze!
Pleasing teenage girls can often be a challenge, especially when it comes to helping them pick out clothes or room decor. If you have a teenager who loves boho style and is in need of a little bedroom revamp, look no further. Your teen will be shocked at how well you know the boho trend when she sees these gypsy-inspired bedroom picks.
The diaper bag. It is a necessary part of parenthood, from baby's first few days in this world well into what may be their toddler years. It can seem daunting at first to try and determine what defines "must-have" versus "meh, maybe not" on-the-go gear. That's why we've rounded up our favorite diaper bag essentials, from a few ideas as to what to pack in a diaper bag for the hospital to what might even be a bit of a "bonus" for mom and dad. Speaking of, not much differs when it comes to diaper bag essentials for dad or mom, but guys on the go may appreciate a diaper bag backpack or duffle of their very own. You know, to avoid potential paisley prints or darling designs perhaps less desired by some dudes.
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.
If it's time to purchase your child a phone, you need to know your options. Whether you're getting a beginner phone for your elementary-aged kid or upgrading to a more high-tech phone for your teen or tween, here are the best options.
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.
