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!
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!

Insert all the “Let It Go” jokes here! This Frozen LEGO set is now one of the top ‘kids picks’ on Amazon for the upcoming holiday season.

The kiddos will love building this glittery ice palace and it even comes with Elsa, Anna and, of course, Olaf!
Many households do not include babies or even small children. If the Bible does not mention babies, then to claim there were babies in the household would simply be an unproved assumption. The simple fact that households were converted proves nothing by itself. Unless these passages themselves show us that babies were included, then we must settle the issue on the basis of other passages on the subject.
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.
It’s more like a cross between a Furby and a Tamagotchi. Remember Tamagotchi, the tiny digital pet you hatched out of a virtual egg and took care of? David McDonald, one of the designers who helped create Hatchimal, does. “I had always wanted to do something that hatches,” McDonald told The Verge in a previous interview. “I always thought that Tamagotchi had dropped the ball — they had a neat idea, but never took it any further, into the real world.”
They’re totally obsessed with PJ Masks on Disney Jr so you know they’re going to love one of the best-selling in the PJ Masks family right now!

Sit your baby in infant swings and seats. These will allow your baby to see the action going on around them, as well as a comfortable place to fall asleep if they get tired during the day.

Just don’t leave them unattended!
A 600-piece set that builds into a 3-level catamaran, with sun deck and pool, a bridge with steering controls, slide and spiral stairs. Comes with 3 mini-figures, a banana boat, and accessories including an inflatable ring, life belts, flippers, 2 dolphins, ice creams, baskets, a smartphone and an MP3 player. Only drawback: it doesn't actually float on water...
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.
Ok so Pomsies is actually pretty cute. These little balls of fluff (we think it might be an electronic cat, but we can’t be 100% certain) can latch on to your wrist, arm, backpacks and more! Plus they’re totally interactive, have 50 different reactions, and love it when you pet them and take care of them. There are 4 different Pomsies to choose from in a variety of different colors.

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!
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?

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.]
For a roarin’ good time, this furReal dino dubbed Munchin’ Rex is ready to go. He comes with a bottle, broccoli treat, and caveman cookie, and when he’s offered them he reacts with one of 35 sound and motion combinations. He may beg for his bottle, chomp on the cookie or declare that broccoli “yucky.” You’re never quite sure what he’ll do, but it’s sure to be a fun time playing with him and finding out. He’s also soft and snuggleable, so he’s a great friend to always have around whether it’s playtime or naptime. Rex runs on four AA batteries (only demo batteries are included), and there’s an off/on button when it’s time to turn off the action.

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. 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.

Understand when to feed your baby. Your baby will generally let you know when they need to be fed. Expect crying. With time you may come to be able to hear the difference between the cries and know which means hunger and which means bedtime and so on. How often they eat will depend on what they are eating, how much of it they are eating, and their own individual metabolism.
