Xia Xia UK stocks are due to arrive in stores across the country in January 2012 but due to unsurpassed demand in America where Toys R Us have reported selling one every seven minutes in the run up to Christmas, distributors have decided to air-freight a limited number over to the UK in time for the festive period. However, they will only appear in a limited number of stores and these stocks will soon be gone and will result in the inevitable price hike as they appear on eBay and other auction sites at exorbitant rates. The best recommendation for parents is to wait until the crazy Christmas period has passed and shelves become replenished in January.
