Picture this. Moms, dads and grandparents standing in line for hours before dawn just to get one of the coveted Hatchimals.
What’s the deal with Hatchimals toys you wonder? What’s a Hatchimal? Let me tell you all about this furry hatching toy. that took the world by storm (and the manufacturer!)
What’s the Deal on Hatchimals Toys?
The Hatchimals are taking 2016 by storm and if you have a little one on your list, or you’ve handed your child a toy guide this year, my guess is that there’s a Hatchimal circled in the magazine. And, since we’re not familiar with the Hatchimals, I thought I break it down for those of us who are still thoroughly confused and are wondering “what’s the deal with these Hatchimals toys?” 😆
What is a Hatchimal?
Hatchimals are interactive toy creatures that come packed snug inside “crackable” eggs. It’s a mystery who is inside each hatchimal egg, but each of the names like ‘Draggles’ or ‘Pengualas’ give you a hint. They won’t hatch until the are nurtured and loved, which means that your little one will have to caress and play with the Hatchimal to get it to hatch.
I can honestly say that I am impressed that Spinmaster toys came up with a toy that can be a stuffed animal of sorts and also an electronic toy. This makes these toys very attractive to both girls and boys — our daughter and son have had a lot of fun with these.
Are there Hatchimal Coupons?
Yes, I bet we’ll be seeing some Hatchimal coupons in the near future – specifically in the month of December (if there are any left, that is!)
Update: I originally wrote this post in December of 2016 and Hatchimals went crazy! People were waiting in lines around the clock for the most recent release of the toys, little girls added them to the top of their Christmas lists, and their parents scrambled to get this highly sought after toy, some people even resorting to paying hundreds (yes, hundreds!! of dollars) for a toy of which the manufacturers resale price was around $40.
EBay was hopping with overpriced Hatchimals and it was kind of a racket. But, that’s all over and thankfully Spinmaster has plently of Hatchimals waiting to be loved by the perfect little boy or girl.
Where can I find Deals on Hatchimals?
You can find deals on Hatchimals all over but you’re going to want to hurry as they’re selling out everywhere and they’re going to start to be severely overpriced. My favorite places to get a deal on Hatchimals are:
I am guessing the Hatchimal Black Friday deals will be good, but if you’re like me you’ll be doing a lot of your Black Friday shopping from home in your comfy chair on Thanksgiving night once our bellies are full with turkey and stuffing.
