FAIRFIELD, Conn. (WTNH) — Hatchimals are the break out toy of the season, literally.
Manufactured by Spin Master, the interactive birdlike toy busts out of its egg and “ages” as kids take care of it, from an infant to a toddler to a little bird-like kid.
They’re flying off store shelves. At big box stores like Target, Walmart and Toys R Us, the toy retails for around $50 but they’re nearly impossible to find.
When they are in stock online, there’s usually only a few and they’re priced high. On Amazon, the toy ranges from $190 to as high as $350. On eBay, one seller offered a single Hatchimal for $600.
“The parents are having a rough time trying to find them,” Celeste Vanderlip, owner of Hobbytown in Fairfield, Connecticut, told WTNH. “Their child really wants that Hatchimal, it’s the gift at the top of their list that they’re looking for.”
