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.
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.
Already purchased an Xbox One gaming console? Most Xbox One bundles come with a game included — but when it's time to move on to more, choosing can be hard. That's why we made it easy for your and rounded up some of our top picks. Try one of these favorite Xbox One games for kids.
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.
