"Each holiday season, a couple of hard-to-find toys send parents hunting from store to store. And each season, they're soon forgotten: Has your Elmo gotten any tickles lately?

A year after its launch, the small video game console sells out almost immediately when it reaches stores, even after Nintendo Co. Ltd. ramped up production several times".
