Unless they manufacture a lot more than they did the NES version last year, the Nintendo SNES Classic should be a hot item this year.

Very true, my guess is they try to keep it limited edition again. All the nostalgia, I read last week Atari is designing a new console again, supposed to be a mix of new and old school games. Not a lot of info on it or when it will be out though.

Yep, came here to say this. No sign it will be better with supply, and the games on it are very good. Trying to find a preorder already a mess- http://kotaku.com/th...mess-1797175460

Yeah I was able to order a few through the Walmart preorder. If they actually ship maybe I'll give one away here on the site.

I didn't know what fingerlings were, so I looked them up.  They're really cute, but is it me or are they really expensive for what they are? (There is a really good chance I'm just really out of touch :)).

The ones I saw were $26. $15 isn't too bad.

I wound up trading my Hatchimal for a lawn mower right before Christmas. I thought my daughter would love it, but no. I heard a lot of them never hatched, so I hope the person I traded with didn't have problems.

 

I had to look up the fingerlings, too. I can see those being popular. I think I will try to buy one for my niece's birthday next week and avoid the hassle.

I purchased the Nintendo Switch for my son at Best Buy.  I had been looking and they were always out of stock.  Got my hands on one and purchased it.

One off the list.  Many more to go!

I was just reading that the huge thing this year is going to be the new Teddy Ruxpin. He is all tech'd up and looks to be about $100 right now from what I saw on Amazon.

Appears it can play music and all that stuff LCD Screen Eyes Bluetooth, App for phones. Too funny. Looks neat and is probably the big thing for people with little kids. Hope my daughter doesn't hear about it and want it. :sidesplit

Oh goodness, Teddy Ruxpin.  I was 15/16 when the original Teddy appeared and I remember that thing freaking me out every time I saw a commercial.  :)
