    He won't get the toy... (no need for the never)

    Next Christmas, (not the next Christmas).

    Don't forget to capitalise Christmas.

    It's almost perfect.  A couple of small changes:

    At this rate, he will never get the toy until this Christmas -- or possibly next Christmas.  

    (The name of the holiday always begins with a capital letter.)

    At this rate he won't get the toy till Christmas—or even next Christmas.

    Change “never” to “not, and capitalize “Christmas”.

    "At this rate, he won't get the toy until this Christmas—or possibly, the next."

    You don't need to repeat the word Christmas.
