Seriously how cute is Ricky the trick loving pup!?  He’s new from FurReal and totally interactive.  In fact, not only does he respond with over 100 sounds and motions, but he actually performs the cutest little tricks ever like flipping his bone, ‘shaking paws’ with you, barking a catchy little tune, and so much more!  Did we mention he’s affectionate too?  The kiddos can help ‘train’ him and reward him with treats.  When they do that, Ricky the pup will eat them and, well, when they pet his back he’ll poop them out.  This one comes with 18 dog treats, a treat pouch, and a fun little bone toy too!  We love him!
I originally was going to put this up for xmas but decided life is to short to wait for some day in late December so I gave it to my granddaughter who was overly thrilled with the out of the blue present. It took her a while to open everything but afterwards she played and played with it and returned to it the next day. Yes, it's expensive when you total up a little sister, a regular doll, etc. but you get quite a few accessories and wigs. The wigs, both the hair ones and the vinyl wig ones, really jazz up your dolls and changes their looks. It really is a like a play set with dolls and a pet and accessories. While i wished it had been cheaper, I thought the price was decent as it kept her busy for a good couple of hours and using her imagination as she dressed up the dolls and animal and acted out scenes. The only thing I didn't like about the toy was afterwards, I couldn't get the little suitcase lid to stay on. I'm not sure it's supposed to but it would of been nice if all those things packed nicely back into the case and the lid fit snugly.

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!
How cool is this new game!  Connect 4 Shots is similar to the one that we all grew up with, but with a twist! This time you have to bounce the balls into the right slots to try and get four of the same color in a row (or diagonal) to win! This is one that you’ll not only want to play with your kids, but will probably end up taking over and playing with your own friends.  And, well, drinks may be involved.

We have cited clear, specific evidence that people who were baptized must always first hear, believe, repent, and confess, and that they must be baptized for the right reason, and that they must be able to accept the responsibilities of church membership. Babies can do none of these things. It is a misuse of Scripture to assume without proof that babies were included in the household conversions, in contradiction to this evidence.

Laurie Schacht fits right into the category of nostalgic parents. “I remember reading Harry Potter to my kids when they were little. Toys like the Mystery Flying Snitch and the Wizard Training Wands will turn muggles in to wizards, and I cannot play with these enough.” The snitch really flies — with the help of an invisible piece of string — and will make your kid the most popular on the block.

These could be improved if they could somehow hatch more than once, or if they could have more of the functionality of the Furbies that would mimic your speech. Maybe give them bluetooth speaker functionality or make them into night lights. As they are, they just sit there after they hatch, so they're a terrible value. I have to give these things a skip it.
Playmobil's a perennial Christmas favourite with parents, as well as kids, and this 9cm x 25cm x 39cm white stretch limo looks set to be another much-wanted toy.

His mom Ruth writes “His cardiologist claims that he now has the heart of an athlete, but we know as CHD mothers that there is always the possibility of that changing. I have raised Keegan in an unlimiting manner, not making his disability hinder him from trying any sport or physical activity that interests him. He is brave and strong, and truly a little fighter; thus the reason why I named him Keegan. He is well aware of his limitations and of his condition, but refuses to let it stop him from being a great and accomplished kid. May this give hope to those that have TGA babies, there is quality life after CHD.”

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.
