Unless you were living under a rock in 2016 you should know about the smash toy hit known as Hatchimals, those cute little interactive toys that would hatch and mature as they are played with. The problem was they sold out almost immediately after release and they were nearly impossible to find all the way through Christmas.
But now Spin Master, the company behind the craze, is release two new versions of their Hatchimals. They are not available yet, but will likely hit stores in a few months.
The first is Hatchimals Glitter (priced at $59.99 each), which enhances the original Hatchimals concept with some sparkle. The new creatures’ names are “Sparkly Pengualas” and “Shimmering Draggles”, both of which sport sparkling fur, new sounds, songs and games. Hatchimals Glitter will hit stores in July.
Also new are Hatchimals Colleggtibles, which will hit stores in May. The are smaller versions of the the original Hatchimals – mini plastic creatures that live inside a mini egg with a large purple heart on it. These are self-hatching like the original version – kids have to help hatch their Colleggtibles by rubbing their hearts until they changes from purple to pink, which means it’s ready to hatch. Manually crack open the egg and hidden inside are mystical animal-inspired creatures with glittery wings.
The first line of Colleggtibles will have 70 creatures, including severak limited editions. The Hatchimals Colleggtibles will be sold in packs ($2.99 for a single and $9.99 for a 4-pack).
