New toy alert! New toy alert! Spin Master’s newest creation just hit shelves and if they are anywhere near as popular as other toys in the Hatchimal family, they’ll be sold out before you know it.
Like its predecessors, each comes in a mystery egg that needs to be hatched. The surprise is whether you’ll hatch a boy or girl Ponette or Cheetree from the Hatchery Nursery in Hatchtopia.
Once hatched, the newly-born Hatchimal will act just like a real baby. It will respond to being fed, burped, tickled, and snuggled and can even learn to talk! You can also find accessories like a rattle, hairbrush, bottle, and more hidden inside the egg to keep the surprises going.
It’s no secret that "surprise” products are hot these days, and our experts in the can confirm that Hatchimals are among the most popular. And while parents might be totally over the Hatchimal craze (we don't blame you), take comfort in knowing these toys teach kids great skills like patience, delayed gratification, care-taking, and even potentially overcoming disappointment.
