I hate to admit it, but this product came out of left field. I knew that Microsoft was releasing a brand new innovative product – the KINECT Buy Sold Out Xbox Kinect At Retail Price but I had no idea that this product was going to be an instant sell out just across every store! I should have seen the signs : tons of commercials, great advertising, and Xbox even changed the entire Xbox Live setup dedicated to the Kinect.

Just one day after Black Friday, and the Kinect is SOLD OUT. MSRP is $150 and it easily sells for $200 – a $50 profit, which is not bad considering I didn’t even think this would sell out. However, there is still some luck left for those of you who want to acquire one. It won’t be easy, but it can be done.

Head on over to Kinect’s Amazon page Buy Sold Out Xbox Kinect At Retail Price, and add this to your wishlist and shopping cart. I also strongly suggest checking amazon daily or even a couple of times a day in case this item becomes available. This is going to be this years best seller. There are also some great bundle packages that contain the kinect. Luckily I snagged a Xbox 360 4GB Console with Kinect Buy Sold Out Xbox Kinect At Retail Price and it immediately sold out. There is also a Xbox 360 4GB Console with Kinect Buy Sold Out Xbox Kinect At Retail Price.

These are all currently sold out, but will become available soon. Good luck with the search – with some patience it can be done!

Keep your eyes peeled on these:

BLACK FRIDAY Buy These Toys Before BLACK FRIDAY & MAKE MONEY(November 26, 2010) is the official start of the holiday feeding frenzy. Thousands of people eat Thanksgiving dinner, then log onto their computers, print out local ads for great deals, and then line up in front of stores as early as 9 PM. Then they anxiously wait until the store opens up at 3 or 4 AM in order to get the special offers. However, if there is already a line before you get there, the chances of getting a great product is slim to none.

I, on the other hand, do all my research and scope out stores well before Black Friday and still manage to acquire just about every hot holiday collectible item. How am I able to do this? Well the short answer is research and proper toy marketing.

I have been buying and selling collectibles such as toys, electronics, plush dolls, Buy These Toys Before BLACK FRIDAY & MAKE MONEY and just about every toy that makes its debut right around the holidays. The time from Black Friday till approximately two weeks before Christmas is an absolute goldmine for collectibles such as toys and the newest gaming systems. The key strategy is to figure out what will be hot during the holidays. How does one get an upper hand on an exclusive and hard to find product? It is all about proper marketing. Find something that other will desperately seek during the holidays. Turn on your TV and see what commercials are being aired. Read various blogs and websites that specialize in either electronics, toys, or other collectibles. Finally, ask your friends, family, co-workers about what is on their “Christmas list.” These are the items that will more than likely sell out after Black Friday and will bring in the highest reseller value.

The Wii Buy These Toys Before BLACK FRIDAY & MAKE MONEY debuted in November 2006 and instantly sold out and was selling for 5 times its MSRP. The same can be said about the Playstation 3 when it debuted, or the iPhone. These products were all highly marketed and were on everyone’s holiday list. Find these products, and you will be able to make a nice profit off them.

If you are still having a hard time trying to figure out what to buy, then my friend, you have come to the right article. I have been researching Black Friday items for a few months and want to share a few items that I feel will be hot collectible items this holiday. I am going to list a few items I think will become harder to find the closer we get to the holidays.

ZHU ZHU PETS Buy These Toys Before BLACK FRIDAY & MAKE MONEY – these came out last year and were an instant classic. Kids all over the US demanded these and every store was not able to keep this item on the shelf. People were buying every single Zhu Zhu pet they could find. Retail price was about $10 and they easily sold for $25 each. That’s a nice $15 profit per stinkin’ hamster. This year, Zhu Zhu Pets have released a new line Kung Zhu Pet Battle Hamster. It’s hard to tell if these will sell out for another year, but it’s worth a shot. I also recommend buying the Zhu Zhu pets “Rockstar” and “Wild Bunch” series. I think these will be more desired than the regular hamsters.


The second product worth mentioning is Sing A Ma Jig’s Buy These Toys Before BLACK FRIDAY & MAKE MONEY If you have not heard of these loveable plush dolls then I suggest you do. They are made my Mattel and might become the hottest holiday item. Retail price is about $12 but I think these will easily sell closer to $30 once they sell out.


The third product is Dance Star Mickey Buy These Toys Before BLACK FRIDAY & MAKE MONEY
. This doll could be the nest “tickle me elmo.” Most places such as Amazon have already sold out of this item, and it is not even Thanksgiving yet. I suggest you keep your eyes peeled for this one.


The last item I want to write about is the BEST ONE I can think of. This year marks the 25th anniversary of Super Mario. In order to celebrate this anniversary, Nintendo is releasing a very limited edition Red Nintendo Wii and a Red Nintendo DSI XL – which comes with Mario engravings, and games. I think that these 2 products will become the #1 item this holiday. Here is some insight. For the past few years, Nintendo has been releasing limited edition Mario DSi, and DSi Light. Both of these products sold out every year right around the holidays. The MSRP was $180 and they easily sold for about $250. You are still not able to find these products today for retail price since they are limited and sold out. Nintendo has already stated that the red Wii and DSI XI are limited and won’t be released again after the initial release. They are both on sale right now and I have a great feeling that they will sell out and will easily generate a great profit. These are 4 products that I feel will become collectible and wanted as we get closer and closer to the holidays.

Every holiday year, there are a few hot items that are on everyone’s wish list. These items sell out extremely fast, are never found in stores, and always rack up extremely high prices on the second hand marked – ebay, craigslist, etc.

A few years ago it was Tickle Me Elmo – last year it was Mindflex, and Zhu-Zhu pets – and this year? Well that’s what this post is for…

So how do you avoid all this? How do you get the hot item before it’s hot? Well, thats a tough question, but there is one thing that I have learned over the years that seems to keep me one step ahead of the average consumer – Look for items that are heavily marketed and will be wanted. Seems easy enough, right? Kinda… All I know for sure is that if you want to make some good cash this holiday season, you need to find collectibles – which are obviously¬†toys. I very seldomly buy electronics since they cost alot and the profit margin is very low – with one exception….

If a hot new electronic comes out around Christmas time – I’d suggest getting it. When the Wii came out,it became an instant “must-have” and skyrocketed prices. People were selling Wii’s for over $600 easily. It seems that every year, Nintendo releases a “special edition” Mario DS – This is another item that always sells. If the new Nintendo 3DS was launched in time for the holidays, it would be a “must buy” but it wont be released till February 2011.

Now is the time to start doing your homework and looking for items that will possibly give you a nice profit in a few months. I have already begun this process and want to share some potential “hot” items.

ZHU-ZHU PETS

These little hampsters were extremely hot last year and sold out immediately at every store. They cost about $9 and were selling for about $30 a piece, if not more. I have a strong feeling that they will be a hot item again this year. Over the past months, I have seen most of the stock start depleting and they seem to be harder to find. I would suggest getting the “Rockstar” series and hold onto them till the shopping frenzy starts.

FISHER PRICE DANCE STAR MICKEY

This might be the next Tickle Me Elmo. It is hard to find online, and amazon never seems to have any in stock. I would keep an eye on this one..

SING-A-MA-JIG’S

Haven’t heard of these loveable toys yet? Well you better. Retail price is $12.99 – but good luck finding them at that price. Seems nearly everyone on amazon is asking a minimum of $17 for each one. This will surely be a hot item and will easily sell for a nice amount.

LEGO SETS

LEGO’s are one sure holiday item that anyone will enjoy. The new HARRY POTTER series might be in demand, if stores sell out. I would research and see if there are any limited edition, or holiday edition LEGO sets – then use your best judgment.

LOOPZ

New game by Mattel – might by this years MINDFLEX – keep an eye on it.

Overall, I suggest that you do your homework and think of what items will be in demand. EVERY YEAR there are a ton of items that everyone talks about. Those are the items that WILL sell. If you need some more help, I suggest you check out NowInStock. This site provides a plethora of items and will actually send you an email when something goes back in stock. Give it a look – see how many items are ALREADY sold out – and it’s NOT even Black Friday yet.

Keep an eye out on the TIPS section. I am going to keep updating it with more money making tips.

Feel free to post and comment with what you think will be a hot toy this holiday!
