The hot toy for Christmas is going to be Hatchimals. Already people are freaking out and paying outrageous prices for the toy.
That’s because Hatchimals are selling out around the globe.
Hatchimals are “eggs” that hatch into cute little furry creatures that go through three stages of growth. There are five so-called “species”: Pengualas, Draggles, Owlicorns, Burtles and Bearakeets.
Hatchimals sell normally for $60, but they are for sale for hundreds on eBay, Amazon and other online retailers.
“Some of our first shipments have already sold out. While additional product will hit retail shelves in November, we anticipate this inventory will also sell out quickly. We have increased production and a whole new batch of Hatchimals will be ready to hatch in early 2017. This is a special season and we don’t want anyone to be disappointed, nor do we support inflated prices from non-authorized resellers. We are working on creative solutions to help kids and their parents withstand the wait. In the interim, some retailers are developing pre-sale and/or rain-check programs for redemption in January. We will continue to update with program details as they become available.”
