The marketing group, NPD, has released a list of the top 10 fastest-selling toys and with it an ominous prediction: these toys will be harder to find the closer you get to Christmas.

Some are perennial favorites like the Barbie Dream House and Hot Wheels cars, while some are new toys like Fingerlings and the Star Wars app-enabled R2-D2.

The Top 10

1. L.O.L. Surprise! Dolls

6. Hatchimals Pengualas

Last year these eggs that hatched into furry creatures sold out. Then on Christmas some failed to hatch. That’s not stopping people from snatching them up again this year.

7. Hot Wheels Singles

These classics have been around forever and they’ll continue to do well no matter how high-tech the holidays become. But if there’s a particular set of wheels your little gearhead has their eye on, better snatch that one up.
