The Holiday’s ‘Hottest Toy’ Is Inspired By Those YouTube Unwrapping Videos We Hate

Oh the joy

Each year around this time parents are frazzled and trying to get their hands on the must have toy before they’re all sold out. Every parent wants their child to open their gifts at the holidays and feel that joy when they unwrap the paper and discover that one thing they’ve been pushing hard to get.

Last year parents were rolling their eyes at the hot toy — Hatchimals — and the flurry that erupted when parents realized they were sold out, on zero shelves, and they had to get creative. People did get creative, seeking them out from people who bought extra to sell at a marked up price. Some kids were happy on Christmas morning, others not at all, and parents were scratching their heads wondering — seriously? THIS TOY?

Well, this year’s isn’t any different. I don’t know who comes up with the hottest toy — or really how one hits as big — but this year’s hottest toy is seriously almost sold out. Kids seem to want it and it’s on every list this year and it to be honest, it’s probably going to annoy the sh*t out of you.

Why? Well, it combines two things that kids now are going insane for and all parents hate with a passion and it’s become gold for the holidays.

Godspeed parents because the joy is going to be annoying this year.
