We all remember the Cabbage Patch doll and Tickle Me Elmo crazes of Christmases past. Hopefully, those battle wounds have healed since you were clawed and trampled on to get one of those back in the day.
In 2016, parents will be scrambling to get their hands on Hatchimal toys.
Adding to the urgency (even though we’re still weeks away from Christmas) was the news that the toy had sold out at most stores, which quickly spread on social media. Likewise, news of it’s availability in stores prompts parents to share the info on Facebook and Twitter too.
What is Hatchimals? Essentially, it’s a living Tamagotchi (ah, remember those??!!). Hatchimals have several phases. During the first phase, kids have to nurture the egg for a couple of days before it hatches into a fluffy creature that can be taught to speak, walk and dance.
If this toy ends up on your child’s wish list this year, you’ll wanna be “game ready” to get your hands on one. Good luck!!
