Many independent toy retailers in Canada are getting their LEGO orders cancelled according to Canadian Business. From the various testimony of independent toy shop owners, it appears that demand has exceeded production and the LEGO Group is unable to fulfill every order. Bigger toy stores such as MasterMindToys and the big box chains like Toys R Us, Wal-Mart and Target do not have this type of problem. This is pretty tough on the independent toy retailers considering that the holiday season is rapidly approaching.
