Your kid wants a Hatchimal? You don’t know exactly what it is? Hatchimals are plush toys that your child can interact with. Similar to Furbys and Tamagotchis, Hatchimals respond to touch and sound.
A Hatchimal is sold in an egg. Your child can influence the hatching time. The more he interacts with the Hatchimal , the sooner it will hatch from its egg. The process of hatching is especially exciting because it is a surprise to see which Hatchimal is in the egg. Once the Hatchimal has hatched, it can be fed, cared for and played with. If your child takes good care of his Hatchimal, he will learn new skills and grow up. Children can learn in a playful way what it is like to take responsibility.
