Hot Toys to Watch for Holiday 2013

It's that time of year again, when the questions start coming in, "What are the hot toys for this year? What should I be buying? What will make a huge profit?" These are questions nobody can really answer with any accuracy. Things change very quickly on both eBay and Amazon and unless you have a crystal ball or a psychic gift, there is no way to nail down exactly what toys will be hot this year. Remember, making a profit as an eBay or Amazon seller depends on many factors:

Seller cost of the item

Selling price of the item

How many other sellers have the item in stock and their prices
(The more sellers, the more chance of the prices going down)

Availability of the product both online and locally

Also factor in toy recalls and intellectual property rights issues - when eBay or Amazon is required to pull the product either by government directive or because the manufacturer requires it

My best advice is to do your homework. That means, DO YOUR OWN HOMEWORK. Here are a few resources with some hot toy reports and predictions, but please use caution when buying quantities and don't let greed cloud your judgement.
