Your little baby isn't a baby anymore! Make sure you're prepared for the toddler years with gear and toys you didn't realize you needed for children aged one to three.
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.
From pint-size furniture to decorations that double as playtime favorites, here are some of the best playroom ideas for toddlers
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!

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.
