It's about that time: Ice, ice baby! There's a chill in the air, the winter months are upon us and ice skating rinks across the country are opening their gates. This, of course, keeps kids busy outside with friends while parents are bustling around buying holiday gifts, readying the house for guests and more. Ice skating is not only a great sport but also one of the best outdoor activities and winter weather pastimes for families. Whether your kid is a beginner or a star athlete, a boy or a girl, a figure skater or a hockey player, or just having fun with friends at the local frozen pond, here are the coolest ice skate styles from Amazon, Target, L.L. Bean and Urban Outfitters that any kid will covet.
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.
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.
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.
Looking for a durable, comfortable gaming headset at a great price? Look no further! We've combed through all the options from favorite retailers like Amazon, Walmart and Target to bring you the best-reviewed gaming headphone and mic sets out there. From Turtle Beach to Logitech to Razer, these sporty and stylish headsets have amazing sound quality, feel comfy after hours of game play and, best of all, cost under $100. Shop our top picks below.
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.
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!
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.
Walmart recently released its top contenders for best Christmas toys of 2018, just in time for Black Friday deals and Cyber Monday sales. Brands like Power Rangers, Jurassic World, Transformers and Play-Doh are perennial favorites on our must-have kids toy list. But this year, we're equally excited about the comeback of Polly Pocket, as well as some newer trendy toys from Little Live Pets, Pomsie and Grumblies. Hold onto your pocketbooks and ready your wallets, because Walmart is stocked up with the most in-demand toy brands and products this year. Peruse our top kids toy choices 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.
Already purchased an Xbox One gaming console? Most Xbox One bundles come with a game included — but when it's time to move on to more, choosing can be hard. That's why we made it easy for your and rounded up some of our top picks. Try one of these favorite Xbox One games for kids.
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.
