Parents everywhere are freaking out over this already sold-out toy! Have you heard about this? It’s called a Hatchimal.
Hatchimal is basically just a furry stuffed animal that hatches from an egg. It sounds pretty simple and not that exciting but apparently it’s a must have toy for 2016. It sounds kinda like a furry version of a Tamagotchi and that was pretty popular once so I guess you can understand the hype over this new toy.
Spin Master is Hatchimal’s parent company and they wanted to address the toy being sold out and here’s what they said,
“The consumer response to Hatchimals has been extraordinary, exceeding all expectations. Some of our first shipments have already sold out. While additional product will hit retail shelves in November, we anticipate this inventory will also sell out quickly. We have increased production and a whole new batch of Hatchimals will be ready to hatch in early 2017.”
Yikes! 2017?? But if you’re interested in Hatchimal and wanted to buy it for Christmas this year you might be able to buy it on Amazon but it’s going to cost A LOT more.
