Every year, one toy seems to be more popular than all of the rest. While Christmas might feel as if it is far in the past now, it's really never too early to secure a popular toy while it's in stock.  Shopping holidays, like Black Friday, aren't what they once were. These days, we're used to shopping online and scouring the web for great deals.

Locally--one particular toy had the internet and local Costco shoppers upside down. A deal so great and a toy so popular--people are teaming up to try and get their hands on them at just about any cost.

Here's a look at the drama that unfolded before Christmas right here in the Treasure Valley...

Have you ever heard of the show 'Bluey'? 

If you aren't a parent or if your kids are grown up these days--we can understand why you may not have.

The "Ultimate Mega Set" that local Costco shoppers were going crazy for includes:

  • 28 Accessories
  • 14 Characters
  • 4 Rooms, 2 Stories
  • 1 vehicle

If you can believe it, all of this is priced at just $54.99.  We've heard from several local shoppers that say in some stores and websites, you'll pay that same price for less than a third of what this big kit includes.

The best news we've seen all day? According to a local Costco group, the toy is back, stocked up, and at the entrance of Nampa's Costco location.

It's impossible to know when Costco is stocking this toy up--but our best word of advice if you're trying to get in on this is to follow local Costco groups on Facebook that are monitoring the situation closely. Or, just make really, really good friends with a Costco insider.

Just two months ago, an online frenzy was built up not over a 'deal' at Costco, but because of a new food court offering!
