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.

Fantastic and unique puzzle based on a 1911 design. The object is to get each of the 16 columns of numbers to add to 40 at the sam...e time. Can you find the combination? There is a base ring and then 4 rings that rotate on top. To complicate matters, the top sets of rings are all notched, so they will expose or hide some of the numbers on the ring below as the rings are turned. Makes for a lot of possible combinations! It essentially turns the 16 columns into 24 possible columns. Its quite a challenge. I recommend you watch the video link. Beautifully made in USA at our Spring Hill shop with highest quality alder rings and laser engraved numbers. It is 4.3 Dia , ergonomically sized to fit the palm nicely. It will come unsolved in the package, but I do include a picture of the solved puzzle. There is only 1 possible solution.

TheÂ TangramÂ (also known as sevenÂ boards ofÂ skill, 7Â TrickyÂ Pieces, 7Â CleverÂ Pieces, and Chinese Puzzle)Â isÂ a dissection ...puzzle consistingÂ ofÂ 7 flatÂ shapes, calledÂ TANS,Â which are put together to formÂ shapes. The objective of the puzzle is to form a specific shape (given only an outline or silhouette) using all sevenÂ pieces (pieces mayÂ notÂ overlap).Â It is reputed to have been inventedÂ in China during the Song Dynasty (was an era of Chinese history that began in 960 and continued until 1279), andÂ then carried overÂ to EuropeÂ byÂ trading ships in the earlyÂ 19thÂ century. It became very popular in Europe for a time then, and then againÂ during World War I. ItÂ is one of the most popular dissection puzzles in the world.

When it docked in Canton, the captain was given a pair ofÂ TangramÂ booksÂ (by author Sang-Hsia-kois). TheyÂ were then brought with the ship to Philadelphia, where it docked in February 1816. The firstÂ TangramÂ book to be published in America was based on the pair brought byÂ Donnaldson. The puzzle was originally popularized byÂ The Eighth Book Of Tan, a fictit read more
