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.
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. Pokémon games feature only mild cartoon violence, are rated E for everyone and are compatible with Nintendo gaming consoles and Android or iOS devices.
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.
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.
Much like the still-hot onesie trend favored by bump-free fashionistas for the past few years, maternity rompers and jumpsuits are all the rage with the mother-to-be set as well. Casual, elegant, sporty and most importantly — comfortable! — these all-in-one outfits are nothing but versatile and especially easy to wear. Check out this collection of maternity one-piece jumpsuits; there's something chic for every mama at every phase of her pregnancy.
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.
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.
So you've got the Playstation 4; now, which games are you supposed to get? Picking out the best video games for kids can be challenging—that's why we've rounded up the top PlayStation kids games and ranked them by age appropriateness and ease of play.
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.
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.
