December is upon us and if you're a parent you're probably already tuned in to what all the kids are after this year. If not, here are five popular options for kids this year for a variety of price and age ranges.
Furby is back! Kids of the nineties might find themselves buying this — dare I say retro — toy for their own kids. Supposedly they're hard to find this season, but Target has a whole selection of them in all sorts of colors for $54 each, and they ship for free. Plus, they make it easy for you to determine whether your favorite Furby is available in store. See Target's whole Furby Collection here.
