Every year, there's many disappointed children and parents because they weren’t able to get their hands on the season’s must-have toy, Hatchimals. If you don’t want a repeat performance this year, now’s the time to act.
The newest incarnation of the toy, “Hatchimals Surprise,” is once again predicted to be the “it” toy this holiday season.
To capitalize on the demand, toymaker Spin Master is already selling them. Details about this year’s popular animatronic critters haven’t been announced yet. The company says they’ll have “new eggs, a new hatching process, [and] a new species,”
Some retailers are already taking pre-orders, which may help you avoid the panic attack trying to find the toy weeks before Christmas.
But if you wait too long you may be out of luck. Some department stores including Target have already sold out of pre-orders for all three versions they were selling, Walmart and other stores still have some available at the moment.
Of course, the toy doesn't come cheap. Hatchimals range in price from $69.99 to $79.99.
