Following its new line of Galaxy smartphones, global tech giant Samsung — one of our favorite TV brands — announced its new 65-inch Neo QLED 8K TV, available now for preorder. (8K, for the uninitiated, means that the TV display achieved a resolution of about 33 million pixels.) If 65 inches simply isn’t big enough, the TV will also be available in 75 inches and 85 inches (taller than some Select staff). While it’s clearly large, The new 8K Neo is barely an inch deep, so it should sit pretty flat against your wall, Samsung says. The TV is expected to begin shipping around mid March, though Samsung hasn’t specified a date yet.

Recently, we investigated whether kids could use electric toothbrushes (yes, once they turn 3, experts told us) and rounded up children’s books by Black authors that portray Black resilience. Given it’s tax season, we also looked at online tools to help you maximize your Social Security benefits. And our colleagues at Shop TODAY spoke to podiatrists and other experts about whether you should walk around barefoot at home.
Baloo launches weighted blankets for kids
Baloo — a Select reader favorite and massively popular in its own right — launched a mini weighted blanket for kids, which clocks in at 9 pounds and measures 40 inches by 60 inches. According to Baloo, its new weighted blanket is made from a combination of cotton and microbeads designed to mold to the body. The weighted blanket also comes in three colors, all of which are machine-washable, the brand says.
Everyday Humans launches evening oil cleanser
Everyday Humans, which makes one of our favorite holiday gift sets, revealed the Ease Up Watery PHA Oil Cleanser. The Ease Up is a combination evening cleanser and exfoliator that the brand says will remove SPF, makeup and impurities,while clearing up dead skin cells and brightening skin. What you’ll do is add one to two pumps to your daily skincare routine — massaging it into your skin and rinsing it off — before you apply moisturizer.
Best sales to shop now
Below, we rounded up some ongoing sales across brands that we think you should know about.
- Baublebar makes one of our favorite face masks, and right now, the Baublebar Face Mask Set is on sale for nearly 50 percent off. Dendy Engelmen, MD, praised the Face Mask Set because Baublebar’s masks are practical but they’re also prettier than the N95s she has to wear for work.
- Old Navy’s Mid-Rise Sunday Sleep Ultra-Soft Pajama Pants are some of our favorite women’s pajama pants — we love them because they’re lightweight, machine-washable and come in over half a dozen colors and patterns. The Mid-Rise Sunday Pajama Pants are on sale for over 25 percent off right now.
- LG is having a sale on home appliances right now, including 10 percent off our favorite two-door refrigerator, the Bottom Freezer Refrigerator (that 10 percent means you get $180 off the fridge).
