All year long, the toy industry was tight-lipped about what’s behind the hottest toy of the year—but now the secret has cracked.
Hatchimals, the newest line from Spin Master, is an interactive experience like we’ve never seen before. The Hatchimal is a magical creature that lives inside an egg—and that’s just the thing—the Hatchimal comes still in the egg. With the help of its owner and lots of love and care, the Hatchimal will peck its way right out of the egg and is ready to play. This is not a lie. This is real. This actually happens. ?
