‘Hatchimals,’ this season’s hottest toy sells out of stores everywhere
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — Parents across the country are scrambling to get their hands on "Hatchimals," one of the hottest toys this holiday.
But stores everywhere are sold out.
What is a Hatchimal you ask? A Hatchimal is a furry, little robot that hatches from an egg and responds to its owner’s cues.
It’s been sold out in stores around the world. The toy costs $60, but some online re-sellers are exploiting the shortage, charging as much as several hundreds of dollars, even thousands.
The maker of this year’s impossible-to-find Christmas toy is "Spin Master," which is based in Toronto.
The first that that pops up on the company’s Hatchimals website is a message stating it has, "increased production and a whole new batch of Hatchimals will be ready to hatch soon."
In fact, Target said a new batch of Hatchimals will arrive in stores Sunday, but there will be a limit of two per customer.
You can always wait until after the holidays when a whole new batch of Hatchimals will be ready to hatch in early 2017.
