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.

Favorite teachers deserve a little something special this time of year. It could be a gift for their desk or classroom that adds a bit of flair, or even just a relaxing item they can enjoy at home. Planners, calendars and journals are always useful, as are cute and funny gifts that make them giggle. Teachers' gifts are a thoughtful way to show your appreciation for someone — including a coach, babysitter, day care staff member or nanny — who goes out of their way to care for and brighten your child's day. Check out some of top choices for teacher Christmas gifts from Amazon, Anthropologie, Uncommon Goods and more.
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.
Most kids love video games — and most parents wish their kids would spend more time learning. Why not the best of both worlds? These educational video games for kids of all ages will help your little ones build usable skills like math, history, language, problem-solving and more!
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!

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.
It's never too early to get a little one hooked on reading. These fun, personalized storybooks for kids combine entertainment with education, making your budding bookworm the hero of their own story. Whether it's a Disney story or a bedtime story, get your birthday and Christmas gift shopping done early and order one of these unique page-turners from Amazon, Etsy or Uncommon Goods now!
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.
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.
Scratch "cuddly pets" off your Christmas toy list and snag one of these hilariously ferocious monsters instead. Grumblies are the fuming counterparts to Skyrocket Toys' sweet Pomsies. Each character has its own personality and design, plus over 40 fierce sounds and reactions. Tremor, Hydro, Bolt and Scorch will be your kid's best friend — until the fiery creature reaches full-on meltdown mode, of course. A Grumblies' short-fuse is something every parent and child knows a little bit about. These hot-headed and mischievous electronic plush toys are a major toy trend for kids this Christmas, so you might not want to wait for Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. Buy one (or the whole group!) and get early savings from Amazon and Walmart now.
