Does wearing a matching family pajama set for the holidays just sound like something your home crew would so do? Whether it's for the holiday card, the grandparents or Instagram, this is a Christmas trend the whole clan can get behind — and then get into bed! While some families have been wearing their comfy group onesies since Halloween (think: superhero pajama sets or a family of dreamy dragons), others are just getting into the flannel pajamas mode now. We've scoured through all the family pajama set reviews out there on every site from Target to Amazon to Nordstrom and can say with confidence that these cozy Disney, Harry Potter, Rudolph and Christmas-themed sets are, well, the cat's pajamas. Shop this cozy sleepwear now.
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.
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.
Whether your kid just likes to snap selfies or she's a professional photographer in the making, we've focused in on the best cameras for kids of all ages. From toy cameras that toddlers can tote around to instant cameras to DLSRs with all the bells and whistles, here are our favorite picks.
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.
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!
Favorite teachers deserve a little something special this time of year. It could be a gift for their desk or classroom that adds a bit of flair, or even just a relaxing item they can enjoy at home. Planners, calendars and journals are always useful, as are cute and funny gifts that make them giggle. Teachers' gifts are a thoughtful way to show your appreciation for someone — including a coach, babysitter, day care staff member or nanny — who goes out of their way to care for and brighten your child's day. Check out some of top choices for teacher Christmas gifts from Amazon, Anthropologie, Uncommon Goods and more.
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.
Target was a go-to for the trendiest Christmas toys last year, and you can expect even more of the same great Black Friday deals and Cyber Monday sales on kids' favorite brands in 2018. From Air Hogs to Peppa Pig and PAW Patrol playsets, it won't be hard to fulfill your child's wish list with a shopping trip to Target. Last year, Nintendo and LEGO were favorite toymakers for Target shoppers, and this year the virtual toy chest is loaded with options from Baby Alive, KumiKreator, Crate Creatures and more. Have a look through our favorite Christmas toys from Target below.
Have an L.O.L. Surprise! superfan in your life? We bet you do! The tiny big-eyed dolls have become one of the hottest toys of the holiday season. In fact, the range of merchandise featuring the mini figures goes far beyond the basic ball. From the new L.O.L. Surprise! Big Surprise set to L.O.L. Surprise! Pets to sparkly accessories and trendy fashions, we've uncovered the coolest items any L.O.L.-loving kid will totally flip for. Many of our picks are available from favorite retailers like Amazon, Walmart and Target — but you better act quick because these toys are flying off the shelves. It's no mystery who will win Christmas this year by wrapping up these fun surprises for the kiddos!
Whether you want a top-of-the-line console like the Xbox One X, a handheld video game like the Nintendo Switch or a fun, simple throwback game system like Super Nintendo, these are the best video game consoles for kids.

This delightful combination picture-and-puzzle book offers two kinds of fun for sharp-eyed youngsters handy with a crayon. The boo...k contains a series of charming scenes, usually featuring children — at the beach, on a farm, enjoying the zoo, at a picnic, and in other fun-filled situations. In each scene, however, there are a number of things wrong — objects that do not belong where they are, people behaving oddly, and things happening that are impossible in real life. The caption beneath each picture tells how many things are wrong. Young sleuths are invited to use their detective skills to find as many of these "mistakes" as they can, before looking at the solutions.When they're through detecting, or even while they're still looking for "things that don't belong," children can have fun coloring the pictures. The pictures can be colored to make the odd things easy to see, or to keep them hidden for other young detectives to find. read more
