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.

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.

Since Half Magic first hit bookshelves in 1954, Edward Eager’s Tales of Magic have become beloved classics. Now all seven cherishe...d stories by Edward Eager about vacationing cousins who stumble into magical doings and whimsical adventures are available in updated paperback editions. The original lively illustrations by N. M. Bodecker have been retained, but eye-catching new cover art gives these classics a fresh, contemporary look for a whole new generation. When wishing for magic, it's hard not to wish for too much. If Jane, Mark, Katharine, and Martha had stopped to think—oh, if they had only stopped to think!—they would have ordered magic by the pound, or by the day, or even by the halves as they had in Half Magic. But no, they asked for magic by the lake—and now they have to deal with a whole lakeful of enchantment! Soon the children are awash in magic. They find themselves cavorting with mermaids, outwitting pirates, and—with the help of a cranky old turtle—granting a little magical help to the one person who needs it most. read more
Can one twelve-year-old girl fight a witch? Exiled from her village for accidentally using advanced magic, Suli must either become... a wise woman or be shunned as a witch. Apprenticed to the wise woman Tala, Suli’s magical education is cut short when a witch kidnaps her teacher to learn the secret of shape-shifting. Suli discovers she too has inherited the shape-shifting ability; she learns to fly and to talk to animals. Then the witch makes a terrible demand: Suli must live with the witch as her apprentice. If she doesn't, she’ll never see Tala again. But if she does, she’ll be called a witch for the rest of her life. “The two things I dreamed of doing as a child were to fly and to talk to animals. This marvelous children’s book brought this reader back to that happiest of times when everything was possible and wishes could come true.” — Ginny Rorby, winner of the American Library Association’s Schneider Family Book Award for her novel, Hurt Go Happy, a novel about a chimpanzee who uses sign-language. "Forest has created fascinating world-building here. The system of magic in The Third Kind of Magic－Seeing, Healing, Voice－are unique to me, particularly the history of the Sigur folk and their shapeshifting ability... These concepts are imaginative and intricate, making the story much more intriguing with its fast-paced plot. The characters’ struggles and flaws reflect on an important message; people fear what they don't understand and they judge the things they fear. Young Suli detests witches, but wants to become as powerful as them to protect her family. As a mentor, Tala is doing her best to teach Suli about the difference between magic and witchcraft to change her judgment and learn the old ways of their family. I gravitated to the well-defined and memorable Tala instantly and I liked the twist in the plot regarding the witch. Overall, this magical, coming-of-age fantasy tale is a solid read and explore its themes and concepts deftly to keep young readers interested. - Reader's Favorite Review A story for those who love to see strong girls learning to find their place in the world, while helping others, with enough action and suspense to keep the reader guessing. read more
