Have you ever watched the Arnold Schwarzenegger Christmas movie, Jingle All the Way?

This movie has been one of my absolute favorites ever since it came out back in 1996. It’s about a dad who waits until Christmas Eve to buy the year’s hottest toy and has no luck whatsoever. It’s hilarious! 

That is, until it’s you. In October. 

Because that’s when HATCHIMALS sold out. To say that I’m frustrated about it is a huge understatement. I’ve sent my husband to stores that said they had “limited stock” online, only to have them laugh at him to his face. I’ve got that NowInStock.net browser alerts thing going 24/7, and I have become that annoying lady who asks every single sales person in Target if they have one, or do they know when they’ll have them, or will they have them by Black Friday? 

No one knows.

And don’t even get me started on all those re-sellers trying to peddle them for $200 a piece (shame on you, really)!

All I know is that there is a certain 7 year old boy who literally has nothing else on his Christmas list and will be bitterly disappointed if he doesn’t get one. Ok, rant over.
