Lego shortage expected this holiday shopping season

Posted: Updated:
(CNN) -
A boom in business means there's a change shoppers will have a tough time finding Legos this holiday season.
The Danish toy maker says they will run short on plastic bricks in the weeks before Christmas, partially because of the popularity of "The Lego Movie."
The company says the shortage will hit parts of Europe, but didn't specify exactly where. 
The company says they're having a difficult time meeting the growing demand. 
Lego is expanding factories in Mexico, Hungary and Denmark to try and keep up, but they won't be fully operational until 2020.
