CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Every holiday season, certain toys break out as the hottest and hardest to find.

Here’s a look at what the experts predict will be the top toys this year:

Fingerlings

Theyyy’re back! The top toy of 2017’s holiday season is back with a larger plush model that can give kids a hug. The new Fingerlings HUGS cost about 30 bucks. We spotted them on both Target and Walmart’s websites. At Amazon, third-party sellers are already asking $69 and up for these toys.

Hatchimal

Another familiar name makes the list this year -- Hatchimals are back. Hatchibabies are the big thing this year, and Target and Amazon are selling them for about $60.

Elmo

And another old favorite is back! This year it’s the Let’s Dance Elmo that’s expected to be a hot seller. This toy will set you back about $40, and we found it on Target.com, Walmart.com and Amazon.

LOL Surprise! Bigger surprise

Also hot this year is the “LOL Surprise! Bigger surprise” -- this toy features a variety of different collectibles and costs about $90. But on Amazon third party sellers are offering some of these toys for $180 and up.

Hogwarts Great Hall LEGO kit

If your family includes a Harry Potter fan, the Hogwarts Great Hall LEGO kit is big this holiday season. The set costs $99.99 and is still fairly easy to find.

Barbie DreamHouse

And you may remember this from your childhood -- but the new Barbie DreamHouse also made the list of hottest toys. This mammoth toy will cost you $179, and we spotted it at both Walmart and Target.

The Simply Money Point: While toys typically drop in price the closer we get to Christmas, these particular toys could go up in price, thanks to demand -- so don’t wait to buy them. Buying from a store with a price-match guarantee is a good idea, too.
