A fun little ‘toy’ for all the tech kids out there who are always on their phones or tablets!  This cute PopSocket has the message ‘Choose Kindness’ on the top with a cartoon-like rainbow.  In a world that could use some gentle reminders, we think this is the friendly thought our kids could see each and every day and hopefully always remember to choose kindness.  There’s also a cute magical unicorn one too! 

Elmo is no stranger to hot holiday toys. This year's new addition will get your 18+ month-old moving and grooving with Elmo as they work on their gross motor skills. This exciting toy has three musical modes: colors, animals, and songs. When you change modes, Elmo's heart changes color and he wiggles and dances to the music. And because every kid (and let's face it parent!) loves Elmo he will be a welcome addition to your Christmas morning.

Churches that baptize babies often have a practice called "confirmation." People are baptized as babies, but later when they get old enough to understand and make their own choice about serving God, they are taught and are asked to publicly "confirm" their faith and their desire to live for God. The very existence of such a practice is an admission that the child did not understand, believe, and repent before he was baptized.

There are a lot of different things you can do with your Fingerlings Hugs. It has Velcro paws that you can connect for a monkey hug. And when you press your Fingerlings Hugs' mouth to your skin, you'll hear a kiss. Throw the monkey in the air or spin it around for fun reactions. Give it a shake or pat its back for some silly and gross reactions. It will even repeat what you say in a monkey voice when you press and hold its left ear. Hold it upside down and shake it for more funny sounds and press your fingers against its mouth to hear it blow a raspberry. And if your Fingerlings is lying down, you can tickle it, hear it blow you a sleepy kiss, and rock it to sleep.

Kano, a company that strives to produce educational toys that teach STEM, procured a licensing deal involving the Harry Potter franchise in 2018. As a result, they introduced the Harry Potter coding kit. Kids can build their own wand using the kit, which they can then use to control action on a computer or television screen. Moving the wand in a certain way causes events like bells ringing and owls appearing. Kids have the option of over 70 "wizard challenges" to help them master their homemade wands.  

Ok so these spiders actually are pretty cute!  They’re new, from Hasbro, and there are 10 different ones to collect!  They’re interactive, voice activated, and move faster or slower based on how loud (or soft) you are!  All are different colors and have different personalities, plus they can totally interact with each other when all put in a setting together.  Think of how much fun it will be to race them!  Learn more about Yellies here.

The Holiday toys 2018 are in stock now and easy to find. This will change rapidly in the weeks leading up to the Holiday shopping season. Each year we see parents struggle to get their hands on the season's hottest toys. A little thinking ahead is avoiding the stress of hunting down stock of the most popular Holiday toys. Retailers have them in stock now and here are our top 10 Holiday toys of 2018 you want to bag now and stash away for the Holidays.
I have wanted to get one of these for my niece for a long time, but I've hesitated because the fact is that they don't always work, and when they do, they don't always work correctly. I told her parents that it might not go right, and to explain this to her when we gave it to her. Fortunately she understands that things don't always happen the way we plan, and she can handle some disappointment.

It’s all about the interactive toys this year.  Introducing ‘Lil Gleemerz!’  There are currently three different ones to choose from and they have over 100 different reactions and interactions like purring, growling, farting (of course), light shows, light up tail, and so much more.  Oh, and did we mention they can say funny things, their eyes glow, and you can simply press their nose to enjoy them three different ways (game mode, light party, or hangout).  They’ve already been named one of the top toys of the year, so get ’em while you can!  See all the different color options here!
Now that we’ve properly discussed radical reveals and collectibles, let’s move on to Pomsies. These furry accessories are interactive pets that you can cuddle, wear, and play games with. They have two modes: virtual pet and freeze dance. In pet mode they will react to your touch with changing eye colors, movements, and sounds (including burps apparently). Interactive pets are at the top of the hot list this holiday season and Pomsies are the hottest of them all. Buy one now before they are gone.

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.
What kids don’t love their Hot Wheels tracks!  This one is the super crazy Corkscrew with the ginormous 3-loop challenge!  Your kiddos will try to launch their cars into the track and complete the loops without crashing.  Eh, maybe they want to crash.  Isn’t that half the fun?  Even better is that if they have other Hot Wheels tracks this one is compatible with others!   This one comes with one Hot Wheels car, but you can buy more of the cars here!
No two eggs are the same, so if you are buying for multiple children they will love mixing and matching the surprises they find inside. Inside the egg there's a variety of kid-friendly surprises including limited edition figures, squishy slime, and a lights and sounds vehicle. The plastic egg is easy for kids to open by themselves, and no assembly is required. Ideal for ages 3 and up. 
Fingerlings Hugs from WowWee have extra-long arms perfect for hugs and cuddling. Kids can also swing them, pet them and rock them to sleep. Give them a kiss and they'll kiss back. The recording feature allows kids to record their own voices then throw the toy in the air to hear a funny remix of what they said. For ages 5 and older. Price: $29.99 at fingerlings.com.
If you have a curious mind in your home, allow them to explore the wonders of science with this hands-on science lab. It’s designed for preschoolers who are just starting to explore the world around them, so everything is perfectly suited for small hands and curious minds. It will also introduce your little one to STEM concepts (the acronym stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics).

Remember how last year Fingerlings were all the rage?  Yes, they were tiny little robot moneys that your kids begged for and you totally thought Santa was going to drop the ball.  Luckily due to supply and demand, he didn’t.  Well this year is expected to be roughly the same.  Wowwee has recently debuted their latest robotic monkey (of sorts) at the New York Toy Fair and, well, we’re kind of already in love.  Introducing Fingerlings Hugs!
There are several Hatchimals to choose from, from “Pengualas” to “Draggles.” But good luck finding any of them — Spin Master, the company behind the toy, says some of its first shipments have already sold out and that it expects the next batch to go quickly, too. Some have ended up on eBay, where they’re listed for more than $100. The company designed the toy to be an interactive experience for kids that endures long after the animal is hatched, and will keep their attention beyond the holidays.
