Appell likes collectibles because they offer a chance to buy a bunch, making the fun last even longer. “The fun thing about this kind of collectible toy is that kids get excited about building their collections. They’re something to stock up on or that could be good for Hanukkah potentially. Some of them have higher price points, but some of them would just make great stocking stuffers. L.O.L. and L.O.L. Surprise are once again slated to be hot toys this holiday season and are perfect for buying in multiples.”
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!

They were obsessed with the movie this year and especially this little guy!  Jack-Jack has a ton of surprises and a ton of fun things you kids can do with him.  First off, he’s funny and when you press him once he’ll laugh and giggle up a storm!  The more you press his belly the more of his super powers he’ll reveal.  The best part is when they press and hold his belly they’ll activate his biggest super powers and he’ll totally light up and all colors, sounds, and lights are activated! Plus, the raccoon he comes with also does some tricks too!
Let your baby watch you socialize. Your baby will learn a lot by watching you interact with your friends and other children. Relax while you are around other people, as your baby can pick up on your tension and may feel that other people should be feared. Be friendly and open and smile as you talk with other people. Hug them when it is appropriate. Your baby will learn that this is how we interact with others.
Okay, so there are two parts to this claim. The first includes reports about Hatchimals muttering “fuck me” while snoozing in their eggs. This is stupid. Before the Hatchimal breaks free of its egg, you can sometimes here it snoring loudly in its incubator. It’s a little sigh coupled with a hard “e” sound that, at best, would sound like a bleeped version of the aforementioned vulgar phrase. Some people think it sounds like “hug me.”
The hatching is kind of cool (and pulled her away from her iPad for a couple of minutes) but when the animal inside sings "Happy Birthday" it's supposed to be fully hatched. It wasn't. By the way, you'll want a Dustbuster around because the shell can make a bits-o-plastic mess if you have to break it apart to get to the accessories in the bottom part of the egg.
PJ Masks Super Moon Adventure HQ Rocket from Just Play lets kids recreate adventures from the series using special light, sound and lever features.

For ages 3 and older. Price: $ 39.99 at  justplayproducts.com.
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. 
Know when to change your baby’s diaper. This part won’t be too hard. If your baby’s diaper is filled, change it! If your baby’s diaper is wet, change it! A soiled diaper will smell, so it won’t be hard to tell when it’s time for a change. Wet diapers can be a little more challenging. Set a timer and be sure to at least check their diaper every two hours. If you notice it is wet before then, however, change it then.
Last year, we scoured the aisles of every local toy fair to get the scoop on which toys would likely sell out fast during Christmas and the holidays, driving parents on crazy last-minute hunts for sparkly eggs, squishy fake food, and tiny interactive baby monkeys. This year, looking for an even deeper level of insider information, we reached out to trend experts for their opinions on what toys would top the charts of holiday season 2018 (hint: Hatchimals are still very hot).

When you first unbox your Scruff-a-Luv, they’re curled up in a matted ball of fur. It’s up to you to give them a nice bath to wash their matted fur—any child-friendly soap or body wash will work. Once they are washed, squeeze the water from their fur and towel dry them. You can also use a hair dryer to fluff up their coat, just like a pet salon would! Similar to a real rescue animal, the more love you give them, the more loving they will be in return. Watch as Scruff-a-Luv comes back to life with love and affection!

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.
We spotted the WowWee Fingerlings Hugs back in February at the Nuremberg Toy Fair the first time. I immediately knew that WowWee has a hot toy on their hands for the Holidays 2018.

With going big and plush with the Fingerlings, WowWee created a new must-have toy for 2018. Like the small Fingerlings, the Fingerlings Hugs are interactive.

Well, guess what... Cheetree didn't hatch. Nope. Nothing. I tried, I trouble shooted, I googled, tried everything and NOTHING. No light up eyes, no snoring, no noises. So, after getting his okay we 'force' hatch his egg. Well, once you hatch the little guy, there is NO Hatchy Birthday song, and no way to get it to re-sing it. (Why not? I mean at least that would be a cute and fun revisit for kids and at the incredible retail price, seems like an easy addition to the toy.)
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.  Learn more here.

Prepare for spit up. Babies stomach muscles are very weak in the beginning. So weak that sometimes they have a hard time keeping food in there! Don’t worry, this is very normal...it’s just messy. Prepare for spit up by always having rags handy in order to clean up the mess, keeping a bib on your baby when they’re a little bigger, and generally having a rag placed in front of your mouth any time you intend to burp them or move them around soon after eating.

Every year, the Toy Insider panel of experts chooses the hottest toys for the upcoming holiday season. And these typically are the most in-demand playthings for kids all year long. Twenty of the toys are the must-have items on kids of all ages' wish lists, whether they're based on favorite TV shows or movie characters or they're simply selling out in stores. Twelve of the tech-based toys incorporate the latest in digital play, creativity and innovation, while 10 are based on STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), from the basics of coding and circuitry to complex robotics.
It began in 2013, where Spin Master's head of robotic creations James Bartin explained that his team hated the popularity of unboxing videos on YouTube, and envisioned a concept for a toy that could "unbox" itself.[1] This idea evolved into a concept for a robotic creature that would hatch itself from an egg, necessitating the design of a mechanism for the hatching, and a material for the egg itself. Hatchimals was officially launched on October 7, 2016, backed by advertising on television and digital platforms, such as social networking services.[1][2]
