Top 12 Toys to Buy Early for Christmas in 2018

With the stresses of work, to-do lists and finding time to just relax, you struggle every year to keep up with the end of year toy trends. And that’s how you miss out on the must-have toys which results in you overpaying on eBay a week before Christmas. But not this year! You have this trendy thing called the internet at your fingertips and you found my list.

What makes this list better than the others? I actually talked to kids. Genius, right? I know, I know…calm down. Let’s focus on the toys first and then we can high five each other later.

So, check out the toy list below(with links) which my 8 yr old daughter and her many neighborhood friends have helped with their “ahhh, I want that” declarations!

BTW I have not been paid or asked by any of these toy manufacturers to recommend these toys. If you click on my included Amazon links to order them I will receive a small referral commission from Amazon, which costs you absolutely nothing but brightens my day beyond words! Thanks for your continued support!!!!

Let”s go!!!!

Pomsies are lovable, wearable pom-pom pets you can take anywhere.  They’re smart as they are cute & cuddly. Pomsies react when you touch and pet them.  Up to 50 different reactions! You can even feel it when they purr!  Each Pomsies pet includes a brush to keep their fur soft and pretty. You can even wrap their tail around your arm or backpack and carry them around with you. My daughter loves her Pomsies Pet!

These finger-gripping creatures are fierce and unpredictable, and know friends vs. foes. In untamed mode, they roar, hiss and chomp! In tame mode they nuzzle, purr and love to be near you. Complete with snapping jaws and gripping claws, these interactive dinos react to touch, motion, and sound with over 40 different sounds and animations. Last year Fingerlings were the hardest toy to find at stores leading up to Christmas. Don’t make the same mistake again!

Each grumblie has his own personality, sounds & design with over 40 different reaction and custom sounds. The more you mess with them the angrier they become, try to get them to full meltdown mode! There are 4 different creatures to choose from! I haven’t met a kid yet that doesn’t have this on their list.

Apple iPod Touch 6th Generation

Screen Shot 2018-09-24 at 8.19.57 AM

What kid doesn’t want their own cell phone? Maybe you’re one of the hesitant parents that isn’t ready to hand over that responsibility and that’s ok! Instead of a full blown phone, get them started with an iPod touch. The iPod touch has all of the similar capabilities as an iPhone but just doesn’t have cell technology. Your kids will be able to access apps & music while on wifi and it also has an updated 8 megapixel camera. Buying on Amazon will get you all of these extra accessories as well.

Somehow they continue to come out with new editions every year. The cheater’s edition allows players to try and get away with as many cheats as possible. If you’re caught cheating then you get handcuffed to the game board. What’s not fun about that, right?

Build a great piece of LEGO Harry Potter merchandise featuring Hogwarts Great Hall with house banners, tower with movable spiral staircase, potions room and treasure room! What kid doesn’t like Harry Potter at this point? Worse case just set this box aside and save it as a collectible that will probably be worth more money in a couple years.
