Holy Amazing! Toys 'R Us Is Making the Hunt for Hot Holiday Toys Easy With Their Hot Toy Reservation Program

Already scheming on your plan of attack for holiday shopping this year? Between the LeapPad and Fijit Friends, last holiday season was crazy and it’s looking like this holiday season will be stocked with its own crop of hard-to-find toys. So how’s a mom to compete? With the Toys ‘R Us Hot Toy Reservation program!

Last week Toys ‘R Us announced the new service which will allow parents to reserve any of the 5o items on the Toys ‘R Us Holiday Hot Toy List. You’ll be able to reserve the toys of your choice the day the list is released through Halloween by leaving a 20% down payment. Here’s the genius part, though: if the store doesn’t have your toy in stock at the time of your reservation, they’ll get it for you and you’ll receive an e-mail when it’s available for pick up. Amazing, huh? All reserved toys must be picked up by December 16, 2012.

So even though it’s still September, we suggest you start thinking ahead. We’ll share the Toys ‘R Us Holiday Hot Toy list as soon as it’s available. After that, it’s up to you to reserve the goodies your little one wants at your local Toys ‘R Us.
