The holiday buzz was clear at the Tallahassee Target on Apalachee Parkway.

On the final day of Christmas shopping, Miesha Herron had super heroes come to her rescue.

She was buying presents for her three brothers ages 5, 11 and 13.

"They like avengers, especially Iron Man, so we're just trying to get the sales for the toys," said Miesha.

According to a spokesman at the Toys R Us on the Parkway, some of the best selling toys include the Cra Z Loom bracelet maker.

He also says the Flutterby Fairies are flying off the shelves.

And he says the Easy Bake Oven is making a comeback in sales this Christmas.

Managers at Toys R Us, Target and Best Buy all tell us electronics are a very hot item this year.

IPads and other Apple products have cash registers ringing at Target.

So do the XBox 1 and Play Station 4.

The PS4's are all gone at the Apalachee Parkway Target.

But Best Buy on the Parkway has them in stock.

A Best Buy employee told us big screen televisions, especially the 60 to 65 inch ones, are selling very well because the prices have come down on them.

Doris Ballard-Ferguson brought her 15 month old granddaughter Dylan to Target.

On Christmas Eve, Doris decided the best choice for her family is gift cards.

"It's kind of practical because at this point, I want them to get what they want, but I don't know what that is and it's kind of late, so I'm giving a gift card so they can get what they want," said Doris.
