The card game requires at least four players split into two teams. Each team decides on a secret signal. The goal is to draw four of a kind from the deck and use the secret signal to yell, "You've got crabs!" to gain a point.  But If the other team deciphers the secret signal and yells, "You've got crabs!" first, the other team loses a point. The team with the most crabs wins. For ages 7 and older. 
Some of these toys will make you nostalgic - like the updated version of Polly Pocket and Lego's enchanting Hogwarts Great Hall—both of which would make cool toys for Christmas. Others are updates on modern favorites, like the Hatchimals Mystery toys and Paw Patrol's Ultimate Rescue Fire Truck. The top toys for 2018 have something for everyone, whether your child is interested in STEM or wants a high-tech snuggle buddy.

Now this is the house of all doll houses! Your kiddos loved their LOL Surprise Dolls all last year (and this year too), but this year it’s all about the giant 3-foot by 3-foot 3-story LOL Surprise House that has a working toilet, lamp, outdoor patio that changes from day to night, a helipad, a swimming pool they can fill with water, a sandbox, and so much more!  Plus, it even comes with an exclusive new family.  Learn more details here.
That’s right folks, the people that brought you Hatchimals present, LuvaBella, an interactive baby doll that laughs when you tickle her, learns how to say certain words when you feed and play with her and, well, just about has the most life-like reactions and features we’ve ever seen on a doll.  Some say creepy, we say “futuristic.”   These were all the rage last year, but are much easier to get this year.
You better watch out…because, let’s face it, Christmas is around the corner.  It’s never too early to get a jump start on the coolest gifts for kids.   There’s nothing worse than being under the gun, while people continually post the countdown to Christmas on social media (the stress is real!).  We’ve scoured some of the top toy wish-lists and all-around great gift ideas .  As a result, we’ve uncovered the best selling toys and games from the top toy retailers  – and found the best prices so you don’t have to.  Shop some of the best toys below!
Romans 12:1,2 - This passage is addressed to "brethren" - i.e., children of God, members of God's family, the church. But people become children of God, born again as brethren in the family, when by faith they are baptized (Rom. 6:3,4; Gal. 3:26,27; 1 Tim. 3:15). Such people should present their bodies as living sacrifices to God, not being conformed to the world. This commitment must be accepted by one who is baptized. Can babies make such a commitment?

On a whole new level of mystery toy unboxing are radical reveals. “Toy companies are ditching basic blind bags and coming up with really cool ways for kids to unbox surprise toys, such as digging through clay, adding water for fizzing reactions, and more.” says Schacht. Wowzer Surprise Magical Pets are snow globes full of bubbles called Orbeez that obscure each pet. To reveal the surprise all you have to do is pour water into the top which “magically” makes the bubbles disappear. Inside you’ll find unicorns, rabbits, chickens, rainbow fish, and a whole lot more.
If you know a kiddo who is obsessed with Jurassic World, this ferocious Jurassic World Jurassic Rex toy is a great option. Kids can control the dinosaur with the handle on her back, so they can push her forward to lunge at other dinosaurs. The realistic mouth opens and closes, and her eyes change color (from green to red) to let you know when Rex has entered into predator mode. The mouth also glows red when she’s enraged.
We love the empowering and compassionate message where Barbie is helping people!  This ‘Care Clinic’ on wheels is also a hospital playset that comes with over 20 medically themed pieces. Our favorite?  The X-Ray machine that also turns into an eye chart with one simple pull of the lever!  Oh, the lights on the ambulance and siren work too! Barbie is truly saving the day!
Introduce your kids to the satisfaction of rescuing animals, even if they aren't ready for a live pet. Scruff-a-Luvs arrive as a mysterious ball of matted fur that must be soaked in water to reveal the sweet puppy, kitten, or bunny underneath. Each one comes with a collar and tag you can use to name them, a brush to make them fluffy, a hair clip, and even an adoption certificate.

So much fun for the whole fam.   The players draw cards until someone draws an “Exploding Kitten” (which is when they explode) and they are out of the game, unless that player has a defuse card, which can defuse the Kitten using things like laser pointers, belly rubs, and catnip sandwiches.  It’s really so funny and perfect for ages 7+. Get it here while you can!
We think it’s safe to say, kids are obsessed with all things L.O.L Surprise and so another ‘must have’ has made our list.  This big one has over 15 amazing little surprises inside, two pet babies, and even one pet baby charm or food baby charm.  That’s just part of the fun surprise! There are even really cool accessories to wear like spy glasses, a necklace that becomes a bracelet and more!  You totally need to complete their LOL set with this one!

Experience their magical hatch, then raise and care for your twins! This duo will interact with each other as they play games, talk and tell jokes! One of them can even record and repeat a message! Bring home Hatchimals Surprise for double the hatchiness! Who will you hatch?

I'll make this a simple and quick review. My kids love it. Here are the pros and cons of this new hatchimal twins. Pros: - 2 hatchimals for the price of almost one with paying about $10 more - each hatchimal has its own personality and what it's capable of doing - hatchimals can communicate with each other, much more interactive than the original Cons: - wings keep falling off, even though it's a quick clip back in, it falls off constantly if picked up the wrong way - hatchimals do not move/mobile like the original, one twin rocks back and forth the other just sits there and is hollow underneath - hatchimals seem a bit tinier and little fragile then the original I honestly don't see the hype in this toy, but my kids love it. I would recommend to buy this if they did fix the flaws of the wings easily falling off, otherwise forget about it if you have two tiny tots.
Now your kiddos can practice their claw machine skills right in their very own home!  It’s just like the one in the arcade, but they have a much better chance at winning.  It lights up, plays music, and has two different modes of timed-play.  It also comes with 6 little surprise packs that you can refill once they win them all. Super fun and something that you may want to play yourself!
It's officially Hatch Day, and that means the wait is over for the coolest new Hatchimals straight from Hatchtopia! The brand new, squishy HatchiMallows, and Baby HatchiBabies are the newest toys to join the Hatchimals family. Spoiler alert: they are really adorable, so if you were wondering what to get your kiddos for Christmas this year, consider that problem solved: Your Hatchimal-obsessed kids will go nuts for these cute critters.
Who doesn’t love a surprise pet? Hatchimals need kids’ help to emerge from their eggs, but these mystery critters are anxious to meet their new friends! Classic Pengualas and Draggles are adorable interactive pets: kids can teach them to walk, talk and play. Teeny Colleggtibles come in more than 70 different varieties: perfect for trading with friends!

But since Jesus said to let little children come to Him, some people say this means we should baptize babies so they can come to Him. But Jesus did not baptize the babies who came to Him. They came into His physical presence so He could touch them and pray for them (Matt. 19:13; Mark 10:13-16), not so He could baptize them. They were already acceptable to Him just as they were, without baptism.
Second, infant baptism leads people to believe they are saved when they are not. God requires people to be baptized for the remission of sins when they are old enough to make their own decision about the matter. But many people have been baptized as babies. Then, when they are old enough to be responsible for their conduct so they should be baptized, they refuse because they believe they have already done so. But their infant baptism was not Scriptural. So the person goes through his whole life never having been Scripturally baptized, and therefore he never has received forgiveness of his sins!
We have now learned four things which the Bible says every person must personally do before he can be baptized. God is no respecter of persons, so the plan is the same for everyone. Before anyone can be baptized, he must hear and understand the gospel, believe it, repent of sins, and confess Christ. Little babies cannot do any of these things. Therefore, the command to be baptized is not addressed to them. To baptize them anyway would be to act without God's authority. It would be doing something different from what God says must be done.

Spin Master was caught off-guard by the unexpected demand; the company originally stated that the toy would appeal primarily to girls aged 6 to 8, but Hatchimals ultimately became popular among boys and older youth audiences as well.[1][2] The company attempted to address the supply issues by having its remaining stock from China delivered via air freight instead of by ship, but stated that there may not be new stock of Hatchimals until 2017. However, Martin added that the company planned to introduce new species and features to the Hatchimals line, and asked customers to be patient. A California mother sued Spin Master for an egg not hatching because the Hatchimal's batteries were dead.[1][2]

Christmas may be months away, but retailers are already gearing up by announcing their top toy picks for the holidays. For their Top Rated by Kids list, Walmart looked to the people who actually play with toys to predict the ones that are going to be impossible to get come December. Below are 25 of the top 40, organized by price, so you can be sure you're not missing out on anything.
While there are other stuffed animals on this list, this is the only stuffed animal that has sequins. Kiddos can choose from 10 different animals, including a bear, owl, lamb, dog, or unicorn. Each critter is decked out with shimmery, reversible sequins that can change color with the wave of a hand. They can even create fun patterns in the sequins with their fingers!

WowWee's Fingerlings are adorable, but when it comes to the rapidly-expanding brand, I think a lot of the spin-off products are even better than the sought-after robotic animals. In fact, I'm looking at a glittery plush Fingerling right here in my office as I type this - and I love it! But now comes the next thing - the retail launch of Fingerlings HUGS, the first-ever special feature plush edition of the award-winning Bella and Boris Fingerlings Baby Monkeys. It's electronics + plush, and priced at just $29.99, we could be looking at another much-wished-for item as we roll into the holiday season. Here's what WowWee has to say about these...

Deal with thrush. Thrush is an oral yeast infection, usually a result of taking antibiotics. It will appear as whitish patches in and around the mouth or cracks at the corners of the mouth. Prevent thrush by keeping bottles and pacifiers clean. Though it is not a terribly threatening illness, if your child contracts thrush you should talk to your doctor to get the appropriate creams to treat the problem.[11]

Now, the whole point of this toy is watching it hatch. It comes with little games you can play, but the kids don't care about that. They want to watch it hatch. After they watch it hatch, they leave it on a shelf and watch videos of other hatchimals hatching. I know because that's what my niece wanted to do. That wasn't just because she was bored with it, although that was part of it. It was because hers didn't come completely out of the shell and we had to manually dig it out.

One of last year's hottest toys is back with a new version—a unicorn! The Fingerling monkeys have been a runaway hit, so little ones will flip at the chance to add a unicorn to their collection of these cute little finger-hugging pets.

So here is where the 3 stars come in, my 6 year old loves it. Even with the less than fantastic start, once he started playing with her, he has thanked me for getting him a hatichamal about once an hour. He loves the little paper that tells you about it's mood by eye colors. He also adores that it comes with a rattle, a cuddle buddy, brush and a bottle. Each of them make Hatchy respond (he likes making it sing and dance). It's so very sweet watching him take care of it, and that 'juuust' makes it worth it to me.
If you remember the Christmas craze last year for the cute little Fingerlings Monkeys, well Wowwee upped their game and literally just released their new line of Fingerlings called “Untamed Raptors.”  These dinosaur toys are cute and ferocious all at the same time.  They’ll interact with your kid, wrap around their little finger, learn to talk and roar in dino babble and, based on how they’re taken care of will depend what kind of dino personality you get!  This is, for sure, to be one of the hot toy request for Christmas 2018.  Grab them while you can at a normal price.
My 7 and 4 year old daughters think this deserves 20 stars, not just 5!! They were so excited to get the surprise Hatchimal and were even more exited when they guessed from the box that there were twins inside... one for each of them! The hatching process was quick and the girls were so happy as they watched the Hatchimals poke out of their shells. Clean up was easy too - it didn't break into many small pieces. Now my 7 year old uses the "cheat sheet" with her sister to figure out what their Hatchimala want based on their eye color. It's really fun that they each have their own and that they can play with them together. It's a great bonding toy and they think it's so fun! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
If they’re not into ride-on unicorns, this is the ride-on animal for them! Meet Scout the Pony!  He makes over 100 unique sounds and motions and is totally interactive (and so cute).  You can feed it, walk it, ride it, and watch it perform a very special dance.  Plus, Scout’s ears, eyes, and head moves.  You can even hear Scout make cute little munching sounds when you feed him.  We just assumed it was a ‘he’ but could totally be a ‘she.’  You decide!  This one is hard to come by and is already the ‘must have’ for this upcoming holiday.  If you’re having a hard time finding it, be sure to check out Amazon too.
The pressure during the holidays for parents is insurmountable.
