Canadian toy maker landed with Hatchimals a huge suprise hit during the Holidays 2016. The hunt to find Hatchimals in stock drove parents insane. Hatchimals have sold out well into 2017, as the company could not meet demand. Spin Master admitted that the demand exceeded their expectations by far. The reseller prices reached triple the regular price of $49.99 and $59.99 at the peak Holiday shopping season. This year the company is likely better prepared and has a much more solid supply of the new Hatchimals.
Spin Master took a Furby and stuck it inside an egg. Hatchimals are "magical creatures" hailing from Hatchtopia. They already interact with your kids inside the egg. Each egg contains one of two interactive Hatchimals. Kids need to take care of the Hatchimal while it's still inside the egg until the rainbow eyes appear. That means its time to hatch. Hatchimals can't hatch on their own.
Touch is guiding them to peck their way out of the egg. Once outside the egg owners raise the furry Hatchimal through 3 stages, from baby to toddler, to kid. The Hatchimal sings "Hatchy Birthday" each time it enters a new stage. Hatchimals can learn to walk, dance, play games and more. Hatchimals also repeat what you say in its own voice.
Earlier this year Spin Master released Hatchimals Glittering Garden Hatchimals and the Colleggtible Hatchimals.
Spin Master has a second toy on the market that is already in high demand that could also become the hottest Holiday 2017 toy. The $99.99 Luvabella robot baby dolls are already hard to find.
Spin Master is best known for award-winning brands including Zoomer, Bakugan, Meccano, and 2017 Toys of the Year, Hatchimals, Air Hogs and PAW Patrol. Since 2000, Spin Master has received 83 TIA Toy of The Year (TOTY) nominations with 25 wins across a variety of product categories, including 13 TOTY nominations for Innovative Toy of the Year, more than any of its competitors.
