One of the most-sought-after toys for Christmas this year is the Hatchimal, which was developed by Spin Master. But due to the toy's increasing popularity, stores run out of stock as soon as they hit the shelves, and shoppers don't know where else to turn to.
On its official website, the manufacturer explained that they are doing what they can to replenish stock this December. They did assure shoppers that new stock will be hitting shelves this month. For those who haven't purchased the Hatchimal, new stock will be coming in next year. That's the best they can do for their customers.
"This is a special season and we don't want anyone to be disappointed, nor do we support inflated prices from non-authorized resellers," the manufacturers wrote.
According to Spin Master, they have increased production, and a new batch is expected to arrive early in 2017. It is to be noted that they are teaming up with various retailers to allow pre-sale. As for now, shoppers can check out the online resource center.
Official retailers of the Hatchimal product are: Spin Master, Amazon, Target, Toys 'R' Us, Walmart, and Kmart.
Those who are bent on buying the toy for Christmas can purchase them online, from unauthorized resellers, as mentioned earlier. The toys that are sold online are far more expensive than the retail price, so shoppers need to be cautious.
For those who are clueless about the latest trend, Hatchimals are toys that kids can interact with by taking care of them. Owners need to care for their Hatchimal, so they may grow and develop properly. The Hatchimal comes in a form of a shell, and kids need to take care of their unhatched toy until it's ready to break out of its shell. Once the Hatchimal is out, kids can teach them how to talk, walk, and sing.
Watch out for more updates on the Hatchimal's availability.
