Does the name Hatchimal ring a bell? If it brings up some holiday shopping PTSD, then you are likely one of those parents who got stuck scrambling to get your hands on one of the outrageously popular toys last year. If you want to avoid the same headache again, then you’ll want to get your hands on this year’s must-have holiday toys before they disappear from store shelves.
Data and marketing firm, The NPD Group has just released its predictions for the top ten toys that will sell the fastest during the 2017 holiday season. The predictions are based on how quickly the toys have sold so far. While some of the toys were also big hits last year, about half of the list are items that are fairly new and therefore might have fewer units in production and harder to find the closer you get to the holidays.
According to the report, if any of these items are on your kid’s wishlist, you won’t want to wait till the last minute to buy:
1.L.OL. Surprise! Doll
2. Fingerlings Monkey
3. L.O.L. Surprise! Lil Sister
4. Barbie Dream House Playset
5. Hovertrax 2.0 (Razor)
6. Hatchimals Pengualas Pink Egg
7. Hot Wheels Singles
8. L.O.L. Surprise! Big Surprise Ball
9. Star Wars App Enabled R2-D2
10. Star Wars E7 Black Series 6-inch action figures
