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.
So you're ready to buy a laptop for your child—but which laptop is best for kids? It depends on what you're looking for. From rugged but affordable laptops to more expensive personal computers for kids, these are the best options out there.
The diaper bag. It is a necessary part of parenthood, from baby's first few days in this world well into what may be their toddler years. It can seem daunting at first to try and determine what defines "must-have" versus "meh, maybe not" on-the-go gear. That's why we've rounded up our favorite diaper bag essentials, from a few ideas as to what to pack in a diaper bag for the hospital to what might even be a bit of a "bonus" for mom and dad. Speaking of, not much differs when it comes to diaper bag essentials for dad or mom, but guys on the go may appreciate a diaper bag backpack or duffle of their very own. You know, to avoid potential paisley prints or darling designs perhaps less desired by some dudes.
Babywearing. It's a practice that's been around for centuries, but today's parents have taken the act of hands-free carrying to a whole new level thanks to modern baby carriers. It's handy, and many would say even necessary gear for parents, but knowing where to begin can be overwhelming. Don't let the numerous choices scare you away from taking advantage of the benefits babywearing can offer.
Once you determine that your child is ready to begin potty training, it's best to make him or her an equal participant in the planning by letting your little one help to choose important potty training gear, including: a potty or potty chair, a potty training seat, potty training incentives, and a potty training stool. Here's a step-by-step guide to potty training success.
