Wal-Mart and Target had the greatest success, while major department stores and clothing chains generally met modest sales goals.
Target's top sellers were MGA Entertainment's Bratz dolls, DVD titles like Monsters Inc. and digital cameras. Other very popular gifts included DVD players and other home electronics, as well as kitchenware.
Hasbro's Fur Real Friend, a hot toy cat, was also popular this weekend; it is already in short supply.
