Kids have sent their wish lists off to the North Pole, and elves frazzled parents are scouring websites and stores to score this year’s hottest toys. Given the popularity of items like Fingerlings and Hatchimals, we were curious to see which toys were actually selling the most units across retailers. To do so, we analyzed 54,000 online and in-store receipts that included a toy or game purchase between November 23 and December 12, and came up with the list of top selling toys, board games, and card games.
