One of the biggest toys, possibly since the Furby, to hit stores in time for holiday shopping is the Hatchimal. This product starts off as an egg, and after a random amount of time that egg hatches into your new furry friend. They are currently very difficult to find.

The Hatchimals website shows you all the locations where their products are available, however you may have the best result ordering online. The Guardian reports,

Siobhan Freegard, founder of video parenting site Channel Mum, has seen it all before: “ ’Tis the season to make money – and no one is more aware of that than toy retailers. Stores screaming that it’s sold out and tales of the toys selling for double or triple the cost on eBay are simply part of the sales drive.”

Hopefully if your children haven't heard of these yet, they won't until you can get one.
