The holiday season means toys are flying off the shelves, which may worry parents trying to finish their kids’ Christmas lists.
Granville Island Toy Company owner Joanna Mileos says there’s one hit this season that’s proving difficult to get.
“The biggest hit this holiday season has been the Hatchimal and unfortunately they are pretty much sold out everywhere. We’re expecting another shipment in after the holidays.”
But do not fret if you can’t find a Hatchimal.
She also suggests a Geo Puzzle Sphere Lamp, Stikbot Studio Pro, or the board game, Speak Out.
SPCA: Think twice before buying a pet
The SPCA’s Lorie Chortyk is discouraging people from buying pets or adopting pets as gifts for people because it’s a big commitment for someone.
You can support the SPCA in other ways such as donating money to feed a wild animal for a week.
“Often we find in January that we’re getting pets dropped off at the shelter that people surprise someone with.”
