How cute are these moisturizing lip balms?
Hatchimals Glittering Garden
I can’t believe these are still such a popular Christmas gift item. They are. Kids still want them! This set includes a glitter Hatchimal and two “collegtibles”. You’ll know your egg is ready to hatch when you see rainbow eyes. Touch the egg to help it peck its way out. The Hatchimal’s eyes light up and make cute sounds to tell you how they’re feeling plus it sings “Hatchy Birthday” every time it grows into a new stage. FUN!
Klutz Jr. My Fairy Wish Kit
Complete with ten projects and special instructions on how to summon a visit from their favorite fairy, this kit sparkles with magic.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, headlamps beat book lamps for reading hands down. Because they’re hands free AND have much better light! (All over the page light, not just in one spot.) Plus, how cool are you when you sit in bed with a headlamp?! These really motivate young readers.
Hamster Princess Harriet the Invincible by Ursula Vernon
What a fun remix of Sleeping Beauty. In this version, the princess realizes she can’t die until she’s 18 and concludes that she must be INVINCIBLE!! She becomes a total daredevil — vanquishing dragons, cliff-diving, and attacking ogres. When her 18th birthday rolls around she returns home to face the evil fairy, Ratshade. And things get even more interesting . . . She’s a great heroine and the story is a fabulous chuckle-fest.

Zoey and Sassafras Dragons and Marshmallows #1 by Asia Citro, illustrated by Marion Lindsay
This is an entertaining and well-written story with the coolest mix of science and magic, a diverse main character, and fantastic illustrations that will get kids reading and learning. Zoey, like her mom, can see magical creatures and is tasked to care for any injured creatures that might need help. In this story, she uses her science skills (including research and the scientific method) to figure out how to care for a sick baby dragon. This is a series, so look for book #2 – #4 as well.
My kids and I think these logic puzzles are so much fun! Probably because you get the pieces to manipulate and can choose your level from easy to challenging. The game lets you get the hang of the strategy with the easy levels and then you progress to more difficult puzzles. A bonus is this is a great on-the-go activity since it comes in a nifty carrying case.

Bird and Squirrel on Ice by James Burks
Okay, this might be my new favorite graphic novel series– it’s absolutely hysterical! In this first book, Bird’s over-confident, laissez-faire character pairs perfectly with Squirrel’s logical, fearful one. The duo crash land in the Penguin world where Bird is thought to be the “Choosen One” meant to save the penguins from the Great Whale. Absolutely everything is pitch-perfect — the illustrations, the characters, the dialogue, and the pacing. I highly recommend it.
