SIOUX CITY (KTIV) - In the midst of the holiday season, being unable to buy toys seems like a Christmas nightmare.

The supply shortage has been keeping many companies on alert, including toy stores. Without some of the most popular toys in stock, some stores may not be seeing much business. However, one Sioux City toy store, Thinker Toys, managed to avoid a lot of trouble from the supply shortage.

Domingo Torres, the owner of Thinker Toys, says he was able to stay ahead by ordering ahead.

“Well, back in February of this year, we went to a toy show, and they told us pretty much what to expect at this time of the year, so we did listen to them, and we did order back in February and March, so the items started coming in June and July,” said Torres.

Torres says he’s glad he made orders early, as he wanted to make sure there were toys available for toy-lovers of all ages.
