Parents are loopy over Loopsy!
Mittens Fluff 'N' Stuff -- one of eight dolls in the "Sew magical -- Sew cute" Lalaloopsy line -- is creating holiday shopping hysteria ahead of Black Friday.
The doll retails for about $25, and is already sold out at most toy stores. Sellers are asking for as much as $89 on the Internet.
Nobody can seem to get his hands on the blue-haired, button-eyed doll -- even though 1 million were manufactured.
Mittens, said to be sewn from fragments of Eskimo scarves, was born on the first day of winter. Each doll in the collection is stitched together with material matching its back story, and they have coordinated birthdays. Orange-haired Lalaloopsy Bea Spells-A-lot shares a birthday with Dictionary Day -- Oct. 16 -- and wears an outfit crafted from a schoolgirl's uniform.
But it's the blue-haired, furry-vest wearing doll that's scarce. As of Friday, it was unavailable online at the Target, Kmart and Walmart Web sites. Dozens were being sold on sites like Amazon and eBay -- but at 3-4 times retail prices.
