Hard-to-find toys...

According to polls, 41 million people haven’t started their Christmas shopping.

I really hope, for those people's sakes and sanity, that none of them have 8-year-old boys and are looking for the Ben 10 Alien Creation Chamber.

Gareb Shamus, publisher of Toy Wishes Magazine, confirmed today something that I discovered early last week: That dang toy is almost impossible to find. Thankfully, one of the helpful elves in Santa's Kansas City bureau was able to locate one there. Whew.

Here are the "Top Toys Impossible to Find As Of This Week," from Toy Wishes:

1. Bakugan
2. Lego Star Wars and Lego Batman
3. Star Wars Action Figures (particularly Clone Command Cody and Ahsoka Tano)
4. Dora Magical Figures
5. Ben 10 Alien Creation Chamber
6. Hasbro – Marvel Transformers
7. Yo Gabba Gabba Dance Mat
8. Clone Wars Voice Changing Helmet
9. Wall-E – U-Command, I-dance and Transforming
10. Club Penguin – Plush and trading cards
11. Webkinz – Plush
12. Imaginext – Superfriends
13. Nerf – all the Nerf Blasters
14. Eyeclops night vision goggles
15. Girl Gourmet cupcake maker

Several of those items are on lists around here. Lucky for me Santa already has them on reserve!

(And... I find it hard to believe that Webkinz are on that list. I see planty around here everywhere I go. Maybe it's just specific ones?)

I'm looking for the Eyeclops Night Vision Goggles. They had them at Target on Black Friday, but we got there too late.
Gage will have two Nerf Guns. One under the tree at home and one under Grandma's tree.

I got my Ben 10 Alien Creation Chamber and Bakugan Battle Arena well in advance. Now if I could only find Pictionary Man...
