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.

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.

Excerpt from Sprague Classic Reader, Vol. 4: Book Four, Part TwoIn the sprague classic readers, the author unmistakably designs to... interest the pupils strongly, and to teach them helpful lessons, by means of selections having genuine literary merit. To do this, the thought-content of the selections must lie within the circle of the child's living, vital interests, not too trivial, nor yet too abstruse or philosophical. They must be more difficult than what has already been achieved, and yet be within easy grasp; and in every instance, they must help the pupil to a better understanding of the world of men and things about him, and of his own right relations thereto.A study of this book will demonstrate its fitness to accomplish the delicate and difficult task indicated. From its reading, the child will gain a clearer insight into his social environment, which is the most important thing in education. The thought that good-will and kindly co-operation are worth while is constantly suggested, and this suggestion must, gradually, become manifest in the child's own behavior. His ethical and social nature will, also, be aroused and nourished by the concrete examples of correct ethical and social action so attractively presented to him.He is not required to learn meaningless words and phrases for arbitrary memory training, the varied information given being related to something of vital concern to himself in the experiences of his daily life. Nor are ethical lessons obtruded upon the child. The selections hold his attention by their own interest, and the lessons are absorbed, through the subtle law of suggestion working their way silently, but effectively, into the body of his emotions and impulses.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
