Walmart recently released its top contenders for best Christmas toys of 2018, just in time for Black Friday deals and Cyber Monday sales. Brands like Power Rangers, Jurassic World, Transformers and Play-Doh are perennial favorites on our must-have kids toy list. But this year, we're equally excited about the comeback of Polly Pocket, as well as some newer trendy toys from Little Live Pets, Pomsie and Grumblies. 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.
From tubs and toys to soaps and shampoos, here's what your baby needs for a fun and soothing bathtime routine.
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.
Acquiring all the products needed to care for your children can be expensive and overwhelming. But you can make the experience a lot less stressful for yourself and your family with quality tools and toys that can be used for all your children.
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.
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. Last year, Nintendo and LEGO were favorite toymakers for Target shoppers, and this year the virtual toy chest is loaded with options from Baby Alive, KumiKreator, Crate Creatures and more. Have a look through our favorite Christmas toys from Target below.
Holiday toy trends for kids come and go, but there are a bunch of products on Amazon this year that we predict will remain popular for years to come. And with Black Friday deals around the corner and Cyber Monday sales hot on their heels, we expect shopping to reach peak levels earlier than ever. So get ready to stock up on the best Christmas toys now! 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.
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.
