The holidays are coming up fast and Walmart has their top-rated list of toys now available.

Now that we are officially in October, the rest of the year is going to fly by. That means that the Christmas shopping season is starting up. As always, we will see super hot and hard-to-find items that are in demand. I still remember how terrifying it was to be out shopping on Black Friday with my family during the Tickle Me Elmo craze of 1996.

Thankfully, things have seemed to ease up in the stores on Black Friday thanks to shopping on the internet. However, that doesn't mean that some items will be easy to find. Honestly, it is still hard to get your hands on a PS5, which was one of the big items last year.
