Patty’s Ponderings: Hot Holiday Toys Disappearing Fast!

Far be it from me, to rush you moms and dads into Christmas shopping, but- -thanks to a surge in layaway programs, some of the most wanted toys are in short supply and I think you should know about it.

Stores including Walmart, Kmart, Toys ‘R’ Us, and Sears have rolled out early layaway programs and dropped or reduced fees to participate, encouraging people to shop early and often.

Electronic tablets for kids and Wii U gaming consoles are going fast. According to the Wall Street Journal, shoppers have put all the resurrected $60 Furby ‘Pink Puff’ and ‘Voodoo Purple’ dolls on layaway at Toys ‘R’ Us stores across the country. This is forcing people to buy the much less popular ‘Plum Fairy’ Furby. Horrors!

Please keep in mind that I’m doing this as a public service. Mom and Dad, consider yourselves warned!
