NEW YORK — One of the most buzzed about new toys of the year has finally… hatched.
Interactive creatures called Hatchimals are predicted to become one of the most wanted toys of the year, according to industry experts.
Until now, parent company Spin Master has guarded the toy inside a large plastic egg. The promise was that — when the time was right — a little creature inside would break out on its own.
To get these eggs to hatch, kids must interact with its shell, which features touch technology. When you tap on it, the Hatchimal taps back. When you stroke the top or bottom, it lights up and makes sounds.
