The holidays easily rank as the most hectic time of year, and perhaps one particular place beats out just about any other location as it relates to stress and clamoring for that perfect gift.
Yes, say hello to the toy store.
Tons of toys will be sold, wrapped and opened this holiday season, and while parents often have their sights firmly set on the hottest toys of the season, they'll not always get exactly what they want due to little supply and plenty demand, thus giving way to the nightly news reporting on parents punching one another to get the last Iron Man action figure or just about any doll from the "Frozen" movies.
And while the popularity of these toys are hardly debatable, not ever product released around the holidays, or any time of the year in general, scores big with the consumers. As many success stories the toys and games industry has had, you'll read about another toy that had high hopes but never quite materialized for a variety of reasons, all this despite plenty of backing from the company as well as marketing campaigns tailor made to sell products.
Problem is, all the advertising in the world won't make up for a toy that is terrible from top to bottom, and that includes the idea of not only making these toys but someone of importance in the company actually giving the proverbial "green light" to make these toy flops.
