Oh, I am a popular mum at the moment. My daughter is DESPERATE for a Hatchimal. Typically she didn’t want one at Christmas, she wanted other things but then she went to a friend’s house who has one and she was smitten. “Oh but it’s so sweet mummy!” “I would look after it every day mummy.”
A mysterious parcel arrived this week from Spin Master and when I revealed the contents, I thought my daughter might explode with actual excitement. New from the incredibly popularHatchimals this week are the Hatchimals CollEGGtibles, a super cute collection of mini Hatchimals that you hold, hatch and play with. There are over 70 to collect in season one and they come from a magical place called Hatchtopia. The Hatchimals CollEGGtibles come in tiny speckled eggs and the colour of the speckles tells you which family it comes from.
Each ‘family’ of these tiny Hatchimals is listed on the collector’s list and it tells you which type of creature it is and you might even have one of from the special edition collection. There is space to tick off your CollEGGtible and this is the perfect place to keep a record of your growing collection.
The map of Hatchtopia shows the magical land which is home to the Hatchimals CollEGGtibles with amazing sounding hangouts with names such as Glittering Garden and Lilac Lake and it helps to create a wonderful world of imaginative play.
Hatchimals CollEGGtibles are available in single pack blind bags (RRP £2.99), 2 pack with a nest (RRP £4.99) or as a 4 pack with a bonus (£9.99). We were sent two blind bags and a 2 pack. The blind packs were the first to be opened and my daughter was so excited to find the cute little egg inside. The nice thing with the blind pack is that you still don’t know what is inside the egg, so there is still more excitement to come.
Once the eggs are free, it needs a small person to nurture it and make it hatch. They take the egg in their hands and rub the heart until it changes colour from purple to pink and then they crack the egg open with their thumb to discover who is inside. Here is my daughter excitedly hatching her first CollEGGtible.
Our first @hatchimals CollEGGtible is hatched and it is a Special Edition from the Lilac Lake family. So cute and my daughter loves purple so a good colour too. Find out more about these exciting new toys from @spinmaster on Twitter between 5 and 6 pm this evening with the chance to win some of your own #HatchimalsCollEGGtibles #hatchygram #HatchAWholeWorld
The Hatchimals CollEGGtibles are super cute. They come in a range of colours and they all have tiny glittering wings. You can play with them, collect them and of course, trade them with friends if you have any doubles or you want to complete families. My daughter is already planning to tell her friends all about CollEGGtibles so that they will start collecting too.
As they are so small, they are easy to store, my daughter has already decided on a spot on her bookshelf where she can display them as well as grab them to play with when she wants to.
Hatchimals CollEGGtibles have already proven to be a huge hit in this house and my daughter is keen to add to her collection as soon as she can and she will take good care of her collection too as she says that they need lots of love and attention.
Once the fun of hatching your new Hatchimals CollEGGtibles is over there is lots more CollEGGtible fun to be had. Why not head over to the Hatchimals website to find out more?
