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.

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.
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.
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.
