Depending on what your child is planning on asking Santa for this year, you might want to get him that list sooner rather than later, if you catch the drift. Not that Christmas shopping is even remotely within your direct line of vision yet this year, but just so you're aware, specific toy prices are predicted to skyrocket BEFORE Black Friday 2021. So, if you know if your child plans on asking for anything like LOL! Surprise Dolls, Bratz dolls, or Legos, you might want to assemble that wish list and get it on over to the man with the reindeer like ASAP.

If you're wondering what's the deal with the price hikes, well, think about the last year we've had. Supply chain management has GOT to be one of the hardest fields outside of the medical and first responder realm. Imagine all that stress. Think about it. There have been so many issues and complications with getting goods from one place to another ever since the first start of the pandemic, and we're still dealing with those issues even now in the last few months of 2021. It's a shame really, but it's the truth.

Since the forecasts are already predicting shipping delays this holiday season, if your child's asking for any of the following toys, you should probably get on that now.
