From pint-size furniture to decorations that double as playtime favorites, here are some of the best playroom ideas for toddlers
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.

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.

We all want our kids to read more, but finding the right e-reader for them can be tricky. We've broken down the specs on all the best e-readers on the market to let you know which device will have your kid devouring the most e-books.
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.
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 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.
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!

Test the battery voltage to ensure it is at least 1.48 on a voltmeter that reads in numbers Second, Outdoor Temperature Shows Dashes and not syncing A: Dashes means you have lost connection between the display and the outdoor sensor. Batteries are the most common problem. A: Check channels. You may be reading your sensor on a different channel. A: Please confirm that the frequency on the sensor and the frequency on the display are the same. This display is sold with a 433MHz version A: Distance/Resistance can cause loss of sensor signal. Avoid having more than 1 wall, window, tree etc., between the display and the sensor. UV coated windows may actually reflect the signal. Stucco walls will absorb the signal. A: You may find it helpful to orient the Display 90 degrees towards the Thermo sensor for better reception. A: Try repositioning your sensor or your display for better reception. A: Complete a restart for display with the temperature sensor: • RESTART DISTANCE: For best results please bring the outdoor sensor in the house and place 5 feet from the display unit. • REMOVE POWER: Remove batteries from the sensor and batteries (and/or a/c cord) from the display. • DISCHARGEELECTRICITY: With the power removed, press one of the buttons on the display at least 20 times to clear all memory. Please do this even if the display is blank to remove any random electricity. Verify the display is blank. • UNPOWERED FOR 15 MINUTES: It is important with most of our displays to remain without power for at least 15 minutes. • NOTE: Failure to allow a display to rest for 15 minutes can result in failure to connect with the outdoor sensor or missing segment on the display. The instruction manual describes a setup for a new unit that has not had time to build up residual electricity. • BATTERIES: Please be sure you are using fresh batteries testing to a minimum of1.48, on a voltmeter that reads in numbers. • SENSOR FIRST: Place batteries into the outdoor sensor first. Make sure they are installed according to the diagrams in the battery compartment. • DISPLAY NEXT: Install batteries (or a/c cord) into the display according to the diagram in the battery compartment. CONNECTION: Allow the sensor and display to remain 5 feet apart for 15 minutes to establish a strong connection. Do not press buttons at this time. You should see a reading on the outdoor temperature area in the first minute. read more
