Without a doubt, Hatchimals were the hottest holiday toy of last year. Now, Spin Master is expanding that world with Hatchimals Colleggtibles – a new series of micro-collectible figures and accessories, born from the magical world of Hatchtopia. Arriving at retailers this spring, these collectible figures bring the magic of Hatchimals to small-scale, still requiring the love of a child to hatch. Available in single blind bags, 2-packs (with nest) and 4-packs (with bonus), kids can rub the heart on each speckled egg to help their new friends hatch. When the heart changes from purple to pink, it’s time to crack the egg (by pressing on it) to see who’s waiting inside. My friends at Spin Master sent us a small assortment for review in The Toy Testing Facility here at Rock Father HQ, and this is what we got. Check out the video below!
Suggested for ages 5+, the characters of Season 1 can be tracked via an included checklist in select packages, or you can download one here. These characters are colorful, glittery, and the egg becomes a perfect little nest – so don’t throw it out!
Personally, I like these better than the electronic Hatchimals, and from seeing the girls and their friends play with them here at HQ, I believe that they’ll be played with longer and more regularly. Funny enough, their big Hatchimals are now “the parents,” with the Colleggtibles acting as “their children,” and it’s adorable. The addition of these new little characters have given new life to the originals, and they’re all being played with together.
As I always point out to parents eager to get their kids the hottest new things, since these are brand-new, they’re already in big demand. The suggested retail prices are just $2.99 for singles, $4.99 for 2-packs and $9.99 for the 4-packs. These are VERY affordable, but they are already selling at much higher prices via third-party sellers on Amazon, eBay and the like. Patience can save you money, so keep that in mind.
