Selecting an educational toy for children that keeps them engaged can be challenging. With the right tools, you can make the toy shopping experience a lot less stressful.
Having trouble picking out toys that your kids will love and you can feel good about buying? Let us help you with this guide to our favorite natural, sustainable, environmentally friendly toys.
After an exhausting month of shopping and planning winter break activities, is there anything more rewarding than the look of wonderment and pure joy on your child's face on Christmas morning? Bright eyes and wide smiles will make all the holiday hustle and bustle worthwhile! In the meantime, here are a few more things to tack onto your to-do list to make Christmas morning a little more magical for you and your family.
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.
