hatchimalsHatchimals (Spin Master)

  • Once kids have played with it enough, they’ll see rainbow eyes, meaning it’s time to hatch! But, Hatchimals can’t hatch on their own. Kids’ touch encourages them to peck their way out of the egg—it’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
  • Now, kids get to raise their furry Hatchimal through 3 stages, from baby to toddler, to kid. Hatchimals sing “Hatchy Birthday” each time it enters a new stage!
