Matching games is one of the best ways for a child to increase their memory. Husker Du?, made by Winning Moves Games, is a newer, more vibrant matching game that kids will love. Learning to take turns and even how to lose a game is vital for a child to learn at a young age. On top of increasing their memory and learning to take turns, children will increase their knowledge of colors, shapes, and object recognition while playing Husker Du?.
Whether your home is full of pets or if you are looking for your very first pet, you must consider your family’s needs along with their wishes. Sure, a dog may be loads of fun but they are also loads of work. Maybe a frog is a better option for a busy family or for extending your number of pets. Froggy’s Lair offers a complete biosphere and even ships African Dwarf Frog directly to your home. There is VERY little care needed for your frogs but the frogs provide some great entertainment. Only requiring feeding once a week and a tank that cleans itself with no electricity used (read more about how a biosphere works) makes it an incredible gift for any home!

Give your child a little piece of nostalgia this year with Basic Fun’s Care Bear Plush. How many of us who are parents now, had a Care Bear plush or other Care Bear toys growing up?!

I love the concept of the Top 100 Kids Movies Poster by Enno Vatti. It’s like a giant scratch-off ticket with ten rows of ten squares that are covered with a scratch-off gold foil layer.

Experience friendship with Basic Fun’s Cutetitos Taste Budditos.
As children grow, they are often unsure of what to do with their feelings. Emotions can be pretty big for a child. Learning all about those different emotions is very important for children to learn at a very early age. Giving them ways to act out their feelings or even the feelings of those around them can help them cope and handle those big feelings in days, weeks, and even years ahead. Whatsitsface stuffed animals have six different faces all available at the twist of a knob on the top of the animal’s head. This gives children a way to story tell or role play with the faces that most depict how they (or the character in their story) are feeling.

The taste of Christmas!! eCreamery’s Humorous Collection is everything you could dream of. Christmas flavored ice cream shipped directly to your front door! It is an ice cream lover’s dream. Some may have visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads but I know many who would dream of delicious flavors of ice cream instead.

Maybe your little ones are a stuffed animal junkie like my daughter is. She has her bed full and a net full of stuffed animals.

Absolutely precious! That is the best way I can describe the Feltman Brothers Carly Doll. She is a very lifelike with even tiny little fingernails (even the thin white tip at the top of every fingernail) just like a real baby. Her real brown hair and beautiful deep brown eyes will have that special little girl brushing her hair with the Feltman Brothers Vintage Brush and getting her all dressed for that “special occasion” with her Bishop Smocked Doll Dress. Carly looks so realistic! The little girl on your Christmas list is sure to enjoy rocking and singing her to sleep and forgetting that she is “just a doll”. She even comes with her very own birth certificate. Feltman Brothers also sell a selection of other dolls, clothing, and accessories.
The Kookamunga Kids’ Unicorn Doll 2-in-1 Shopping Cart makes it easy to take your baby doll along with you. The perfectly pink shopping cart has a built-in seat where your doll can sit. The seat has an adorable unicorn pattern on it.
