Get Ready! Here are 2018’s Hottest Toy Predictions

Do you remember the craziness over the L.O.L. balls and the Fingerlings last year 2017? I do. I sat at the computer talking to my brother waiting for the Fingerlings to be in stock and share with you all. This year I'm doing some digging to prepare for the hottest toy trends of 2018 and even grab a few now for giveaways later on this year.

If you are thinking your kids may be into any of these toys grab one while you can before the madness.  Otherwise, you will pay an online seller triple what the toy is worth. As a parent, I can't justify paying triple the cost because I waited until the last minute.

So get prepared keep your eye on these toys and heck you may want to just grab the ones you can now.


Where do they come up with these names?

This is an electronic pet that is cuter than the Fingerling Monkey. It's a wearable plush pet with giant color changing eyes. They are interactive so think Fingerling that is bigger coos and dances. If you are familiar with Hatchimals the eye color on Pomsies tells you how they are feeling. They can be hungry, coughing, sneezing etc.  I know we are in for a real treat as parents right?! After watching the video here of these they remind me of a Hatchimal.

The good news is they are the same price point as Fingerlings $14.99. Every parent loves a hot toy under $20.

Unlike the ridiculous L.O.L. ball! ( My kids unboxed the smaller ones last year here.)

They are available in three places currently.

Some aren't out yet at Walmart and Target. There are a bunch of Pomsies to choose from. Remember you really don't want to go too high above $14.99 as we get closer to December.


This little Patches does:

  • Pomsies will tell you when they feel tired, cold or Hungry with adorable light up eyes, purring and cute sounds…only you can give them what they need!
  • Take it to a new level with a special freeze dance mode you can play with you and your friends!
  • Reacts to touch! light up eyes communicate how they feel!
  • Touch sensors – pet them, hug them, love them. Over 50 cute sounds!
  • Twist and lock tail – a great accessory for your backpack, wrist, hair and more!

You can grab this one on Amazon for $14.82. ( Fingerlings were around $50 last year when they were out of stock in major retailers and Amazon)


Here's another one just to give you an idea, but you can see all the Pomsies on Amazon here. 

This one is Blossom and $14.99 on Amazon here.  

Or you can grab it at Walmart here. 


Now if you are thinking you have a child who isn't into the look of the Pomsies check out the Pomsies Grumblies! 




Order yours here for $19.99 pre-order ( Item released on Aug. 1)

  • Hydro loves water, but loves waves even more, his grumbling sends tidal waves out to the shore. Beware if surfing’s your favorite hobby, he may rumble up a giant Tsunami!
  • No nurturing here – Poke, shake, tilt and roll them
  • The more you mess with them the angrier they become, try to get them to full meltdown mode!
  • More than 40 different reactions and custom sounds
  • Each grumblie has his own personality, sounds & design
