Hatchimals Black Friday & Cyber Monday Predictions for 2018
The Hatchimals was one of the hottest toys of Christmas 2016, with so much hype that they sold out and panicked parents were buying Hatchimals for several times the RRP! However, as is the case with any ‘craze toy’, they come and go pretty quickly.
Data shows that interest has been falling since the initial explosion, with now half as much interest as last year. But what does this mean for Hatchimals Black Friday discounts? We think there are likely to be deals on offer as retailers try and shift the remaining stock from this dying craze. We could be wrong, but any Black Friday/Cyber Monday Hatchimals deals we find will be listed right here. Return for updates!
What Are Hatchimals?
Hatchimals are collectible eggs. Or “collegtables“, as they’ve been called. It’s all about hatching your own world of miniature adorable creatures. There is a whole experience right from the very first moment you get your Hatchimal surprise, with excited children taking to Youtube to record their surprise hatch!
- Once you’ve opened the packaging (which is awesome in itself), you first have to figure out where your egg is from by matching your egg up to the families on the checklist. Knowing the family of your egg before you hatch is really important, just in case you already have all the eggs in that family. If you do, you can trade with friends!
- Now, the exciting bit – you are now ready to hatch! To begin hatching, you need to rub the heart on the front of the egg and warm it up. You can rub it on the palm of your hand too, whatever feels right!
- As you warm it up, you’ll see the pink change to pink! The pink means it’s ready to hatch. Now you just need to peel away the shell and out comes the new Hatchimal surprise… So cute! You can peel all the way back and use the eggshell as a nest:
- Now you can search on http://www.hatchimals.com/collect to find your hatchimals name!
- There are over 70 Hatchimals Surprise eggs to collect in season 1, some rarer than others so now the search starts to complete your whole family!
And that’s all there is to it, crazy right? But the demand is anything but in recent years. If you are late to the party and looking to score a Black Friday or Cyber Monday Hatchimals deal for 2018, see above for our advice.
