This adorable plastic doll is so cute that people are buying ones, especially in the US.
Created by Spin Master Corp, Hatchimal is an animatronic toy in the form of interactive egg that hatches and needs to be taken care of and nurtured, followed by the ability to train the bird to move, dance, repeat words and later, play games.
Consumer demand has far exceeded expectations. You probably can’t get one. Nobody can. For now.
Hatchimal becomes so popular that waiting lists show up, and the toy’s website urges shoppers to try getting one ‘again’ in January next year.
The $60 Hatchimal has become the single biggest-selling toy at Amazon and Walmart in any category, according to Spin Master.
