What Is the Hottest Holiday Toy 2018?

The Holidays 2018 are only a few weeks away, but there is no must-have Holiday toy.

WowWee's Fingerlings monkeys were all the rage at this time a year ago. Parents were struggling to find them in stock and every restocking of Fingerlings at Walmart or Amazon was a big deal. This year there is none of that. There is no hottest Holiday toy 2018. There are many toys that are selling very well, but there is no toy that everyone is going mad over hunting it down.

The most recent spike in demand was for the launch of the L.O.L. Surprise Hairgoals dolls earlier this week. The L.O.L. Surprise brand is in general dominating Holiday toy sales charts with many different products. The supply of L.O.L. Surprise toys continues to be decent, and there are even deals. The L.O.L. Surprise! Bigger Surprise with 60+ Surprises is only $76.49 on amazon.com.

We see some attempts to hype toys to be the hottest Holiday toy of 2018 in TV news segments. Featured toys include Scruff-A-Luvs, Fingerlings Hugs, Rescue Runts (shown above), Pomsies, Wrapples, L.O.L. Surprise house, 2018 Barbie Dreamhouse and more.

The only toy from the list above that shows a bit of a shortage right now are the Scruff-A-Luvs plush toys, but we spotted them in stock at target.com for $17.69. Amazon and Walmart are sold out of Scruff-A-Luvs at the moment.

What seems to happen is that toy makers have prepared deep inventories for their toys this year. Additionally, there are many similar toys. Just take the wide range of electronic pets that followed the Fingerlings this year.

There are only about three weeks left in the Holiday shopping season. If this is enough time for a toy to become the hottest Holiday toy 2018 is questionable. If you are having problems find a toy gift for the Holidays in stock, please let us know in the comments below.
