If you want your kid to be happy on Christmas morning with the popular toy in their hands that they nagged you for months about, you'd better start shopping now. Of the 16 toys on last year's top most wanted list by TimetoPlayMag.com, 14 had sold out two weeks before Christmas, according to Jim Silver, editor-in-chief of the now 2-year-old website.

"Our advice is 'Shop early and shop late,'" Silver told WalletPop. In other words, shop now for the hottest toys before they're out of stock, and shop in the last week or so before Christmas for bargains.
