Hoverboard lovers, get out your tissues.

Walmart told BuzzFeed News that it "probably won't" sell the trendy scooter/skateboard hybrids this holiday season. Sob! 

The news site suggests a patent dispute over the self-balancing scooters is the reason why many major retailers have backed out of selling the boards. Online retailers such as Amazon or Shopify, meanwhile, are selling the trendy accessory for as high as $2,000 a pop.

Ouch. Along those same lines, Best Buy indicated to Buzzfeed that it's still unsure and Target has given mixed messages as well as to whether or not they'll be stocking the boards on their shelves. 

This got us thinking. Could this be the Tickle Me Elmo of present day? We can picture it now: Tents of trend-hungry parents camping outside of the one toy store in town that's selling hoverboards in subzero temperatures. Heaven help us.

You can dry your eyes, though. If you're dying to get one for the most wonderful time of the year, Toys "R" Us has got your back.

In the meantime, enjoy these gorgeous celebrities riding the hottest holiday trend. What a time to be alive.
