We always love a ‘toy’ where the kids can actually learn.  Go figure!?  This is one of the latest must-haves of the season and will come with 5 award winning games that allow your kids to transform their iPad into a hands-on learning tool.  It helps with things like math, spelling, and more!  It’s perfect for children between the ages of 5 and 12, but the only thing we don’t love about it is that it’s only compatible with the iPad.  So if you have another brand’s tablet, it’ll be a no-go.
We can’t wait to bust this guy out of his crate and, well, your kids will too!  They’ll use the crowbar (that comes with it) to pop open that lock and release this little monster from his prison!  He’ll even make over 45 different sounds and when he’s turned upside down, dropped, or knocked over.  When they pull his tongue, he’ll make funny noises, vibrate, and his eyes will glow.  Even better, your kids can record their voice and this creature will play back their message in their own ‘creature voice.’  There are a bunch of different Crate Creatures to choose from too.  See all the options here!
This class teaches expecting parents and family members the basics of caring for a new baby. The course will include diaper changing, bathing, dressing, bonding, swaddling, burping, feeding, carrying, soothing and the appearance of newborns, along with some essential tips for surviving the first few months of parenting. Cost of class is per couple.
Yes this is the magic Harry Potter wand your kids (and you!) have been waiting for.  They’ll actually build this themselves and learn to code all at the same time!  From there their magic wand will be able to do things like make pumpkins grow, make feathers fly, multiply your magical goblets, make fire flow, create spells and so much more! Plus, did we mention this will all interact via their tablet or computer?  Pretty amazing.  Learn more here.
That’s right, Pikmi Pops are back!  And this one is cuter than ever (and will be kind of tough to get).  Meet ‘Cinnabun’ the giant reversible bunny with giant cute and snuggly floppy ears!  Inside this giant surprise you just may find one or two exclusive scented Pikmi Flips!  Plus, there are 8 surprises inside in total and the most fun part is that your kiddos aren’t going to know which they’re getting until they open it.  Seriously, how cute is this bunny?!  And you’ll love their scent 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?  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!
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.

Three different modes allow Giraffe, Lion and Zebra to introduce the ABCs and 123s while playing safari-themed tunes. The light-up piano lets tiny tots discover shapes and colors.

For ages 6 months and older. Price: $49.99 at leapfrog.com.
My two girls after over 5 month wait finally was able to get their Hatchimals and they were not disappointed. I was impressed at the muti-functions these little animated toys were capable of. They speak, move, and light up. These little critters are still holding their attention much longer than their Furbys. They got them on Easter and still play with them often and it is almost June and they are still running on the batteries that came with them. I am impressed.

We are obsessed with this new interactive Fozzie Bear from Muppet Babies!  When you press his paw he’ll tell jokes, sing a song, giggle, wiggle, and more!  When he laughs his tie even lights up!  We love the message of Fozzie’s ‘never give up’ attitude and know your kiddos will love him too.  He’s now listed as one of the must-haves of the holiday season.  Learn more about Fozzie here!
Yeah, it’s a neat idea that doesn’t always work. When some eggs failed to properly hatch on Christmas, angry parents swarmed Spin Master’s social media pages to complain; the company has since vowed to boost their customer service to address problems. Other customers said their newly hatched friends straight up died soon after pecking their way in the world. Or they wouldn’t turn on (read: refused to live).

Super fun and something that you may want to play yourself!

Breastfeeding is incredibly simple. Women were born to do it, after all! Be sure that you are keeping your nipple clean and free of any infections. Consult with your doctor if you are taking any medications and check labels on over-the-counter drugs. You will also want to eat as healthfully as possible, since you will be sharing those nutrients with your baby!
The Bible describes different degrees of faith (Heb. 10:39; cf. Jas. 2:19; John 12:42,43; Matt. 14:31). Children gradually grow in understanding and in faith, but they do not have "saving" faith, sufficient to be baptized, until they are old enough to repent, confess, and fully accept the responsibility of living the Christian life, as we have already studied.
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.
They can use the X-Cavator (a tool that's included in the set) to dig up and collect up to 24 Treasure Hunter action figures and up to 32 individual pieces of treasure. Along the way you might find a mysterious treasure chest or the bones and weapons of Treasure Hunters who have come before you. With 10 different levels of adventure, it will keep kids entertained for hours.

Surprise toys have become a major hit amongst the children 5-years-old and up and this set does not disappoint. Often you buy these gifts in single or smaller sized packages, but this one comes with over 60+ surprise that they'll unwrap—plus many of them are limited of time options.

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.

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!

Amongst the slime, sand, unicorns, pugs (and pugs that are also unicorns), there were some gems at this year's London Toy Festival. The week-long mega toy fest that determines a lot of how the £3.4bn ($4.7bn) industry will fair in 2018 and (somewhat) in 2019. Fewer STEM and STEAM toys than I expected but they were there. The gender divide is still well and truly alive and well (although mainly perpetuated by demo-ers and stereotypical imagery in the main). Amongst the licensed toys (look out for new Turtles, Incredibles...everywhere and Nickelodeon properties to be particularly strong although most were under NDA so...no pics), here are the best things I saw walking around that kids (and big kids) will be parents and Santa asking for this year.
Eh. We bought into the hype and I thought this would be a cute idea since they’re twins, but... these hatchimals do not move around like the original. One twin has almost a bobble head and you can push its head down and the other twin is supposed to dance, but ours just kind of shakes and is extremely loud. Whatever components are inside that twin just make a really annoying buzzing sound, so playing with it is extremely frustrating because you can barely hear what it’s saying. These are a lot worse than the first hatchimal from last year and are a little confusing too. Each twin has its own set of rules to follow, so for children under 7-8, understanding what the eye color means will probably be difficult, if not frustrating. I can really only be disappointed with myself for ordering this

In this case there is no reason to believe that Lydia was even married, let alone that she had little children. The Bible teaches that, if a woman has a husband, he should be the head of the household (Eph. 5:22-25). So whenever the Bible refers to the activity of a household, if the husband is included in that activity, if the wife is mentioned by name then the man is also mentioned. (Notice how the other household conversions demonstrate this. Genealogies also followed this rule.)
