Format: Toy
We've reviewed both the Green and Pink versions. Our Green was ordered from Amazon France but was still the standard UK edition. Although the two eggs are similar this Green was far preferred by our little one, but...

The issue we sometimes have with toy releases before Christmas is often certain products will appear on "top toy" lists with very little feedback or rationale. Various sources will promote them as likely presents kids will love, or must haves, and parents will often buy them without much research other than the adverts that may be on TV or the limited reviews online.

The Hatchimals range seems to be one of those such toys this year, lots of hype but very little availability on the high streets and inflated prices online. Now, Amazon have stock for most versions of this toy but the prices range bizarrely up to £100+

We've been reviewing a few of the "expected" bg toys this year so gave the Hatchimal (Pink) a go. It is presented in premium looking boxing.

From the start Little Savvy (aged 3) was excited. He's used a few Hatch'ems, a similar low-cost alternative, and loved them as they've grown over a week or so. The Hatchimal Egg is huge, meaning the expectation is also huge. After unboxing and half an hour or so, signs of the "hatching" process began.

From then on, although engrossing with tapping sounds and colour, it was all too speedy. The embryonic stage, hatching, baby and infant to adult transformation took at most a few hours and then the Hatchimal did very little more other than inspire Little Savvy to ask if he could have the egg back, or have another Hatch'em, which as mentioned is significantly cheaper.

Overall we cannot recommend this item at it's current price tag for £80+, if it was £20 it would have merit maybe, but for the longevity of play we suggest buying a few Hatch'ems instead for significantly less of your hard earned cash.

It wasn't an easy birth, after about 30 minutes of playing with the egg, it made the happy hatching noise and started flashing and pecking, but after 20 minutes of hatching it still hadn't fully pecked it's way out, just a few cracks in the egg, it had fallen asleep 5 times during hatching, and my hands were tired out from rubbing it to try and encourage it to keep it awake. So I ended up cracking open the half broken egg myself and pulling the hatchimal out, which did spoil the fun a bit. Perhaps mine was faulty, or I was doing something wrong, I'm not sure :(

The hatchimal itself is an adorable bundle of fluff, and I loved the surprise of not knowing what colour it would be, there's no denying the cuteness! It soon turned into a strange fluffy game of 'Simon says', the hatchimals eyes turn a colour and you've got to do the right action to keep it happy, but the only things you can do really are pat its head, rub its belly or tip it up to make it eat, which gets boring pretty quickly. It makes a few noises but it doesn't respond in cute ways like a furby does, with the attitude and facial expressions, etc, there's just not much personality, just blank glowing eyes! It does move around on the ground and flap wings, which was a fun surprise, but this does make it less cuddly as the wheels keep whirring if you try to hold it. I gather it does develop new games in the next stage as it gets older though, so the best might be yet to come!

Overall I'd say it's cute and I think very young children will like it, the hatching part is really original, but the hatchimal inside gets boring quickly, and i'll be sticking with furbys in future, they have more attitude and personality!

After all the orchestrated hype finally managed top get one for Christmas. What a disappointment. After three hours of stroking cuddling, turning back off and then back on it still would not hatch. One very tearful little girl on Christmas day and on and off since., especially since two of her cousins also had one each and they hatched within about 20 minutes.
Tried to get in touch with the firm today after almost 2 hours hanging on and being be told continually that a representative would be with me shortly I gave up, probably exactly what they wanted me to do. None left in shops and Tesco who it came from will refund but only if I take it into a shop [30 minutes away] or wait in all day for it to be collected and with 5 grandchildren staying all under 7 and activities arranged every day that is not going to happen in the near future. They will not let me post it ????
The firm making hatchimal knew just how popular it would be you only have to look back on Furby's and other toys of Christmas past. They should have made sure that enough were made and that there was some sort of quality controls rather than having to rush them out. I hate to think of all the children that had their Christmas day and days after spoiled because of this toy. Then they obviously do not have enough staff to deal with the complaints that they knew must be coming.Shame on SPIN MASTER.
