If you want your child to have the most popular toy of the 2017 Holiday season, you had better get to the store. Keri Lumm (@thekerilumm) reports.
Fingerlings, touted as one of the hottest toys this holiday season, are already selling fast.
Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the world’s biggest retailer, says inventory is “tight” for the WowWee Group Ltd. product.
“We are selling it as we get it,” Chief Merchandising Officer Steve Bratspies said on a call with reporters. “There’s not tons of excess, but we feel good about where we are.”
Fingerlings — plastic monkeys that hang onto a child’s finger, blink their eyes and blow kisses — were featured in Wal-Mart’s list of the top toys of the season. Toy Insider, an industry publication, also has named the product to its roster of the most coveted items.
