Number one must have toy! Hatchimals are going to be HUGE this year, basically if your kid wants one and you’ve not already bought it…. get searching now before it’s too late! HatchimalsTM are interactive magical creatures that really hatch themselves from eggs, with your help!

Nestled inside a brightly, speckled egg, the Hatchimal relies on a child’s curiosity, care and nurturing. The Hatchimal responds to the power of human touch and begins to hatch and communicate through taps, pecks, lights and sound; which Hatchimal is inside is only revealed when it hatches.

The hatch is a moment in time, never to be repeated, but this is just the beginning of the experience. The child is the key to releasing the magic of the toy, and with care, they can raise their Hatchimal through three phases, from baby to full-grown Hatchimal, teaching it to walk, talk, play games and more.
