Hatchimals Pengulas, Draggles, Burtles, Owlicorns and Bearakeet Detailed
 

The Hatchimals are the hottest Holiday toys of 2016 and have become the collector's items and gold for resellers. See also a video explaining in detail how to play with Hatchimals and how to unpack them without damaging the egg.

Spinmaster's Hatchimals bring back memories of the Furby madness almost 20 years ago. Just like the Furby in 1998, Hatchimals have sold out early in the Holiday season and a big reseller market started to trade the hard to find Holiday toys. You can find the Hatchimals flooding the Amazon Marketplace right now.

The Hatchimals reseller market prices the hatchlings at about a 100% premium depending on the kind of Hatchimals. For those who have been there for the Furby craze, the Furby also had different prices depending on the color and pattern of the fur. Spinmaster used that well and proven concept and offers five different kinds of Hatchimals, with three of them sold exclusively at specific retailers. Each kind of Hatchimals comes in different colors, adding another dimension for collectors. 

Different Kinds of Hatchimals

To make it even more interesting, each egg contains one of two colors. The colors of the Hatchimals inside is coded into the colored dots on the egg shell. Find all Hatchimals listed below.

Hatchimals have a suggested retail price is $59.99. As reported earlier, Spinmaster has announced that the initial shipments of Hatchimals have sold out. There is supposed new inventory still hitting store shelves this month, but the toy maker also said that their increased production will miss the Holidays and arrive in early 2017.

The Hatchimals demand is dramatically higher in the United States than in other countries. The reseller prices in Germany and the UK are still way under $100. If you have friends in Europe, you can ask them to pick Hatchimals up for you and mail them to you. European toy stores expect new Hatchimals inventory still to arrive end of November.

As mentioned above, the prices for Hatchimals on the reseller market available on Amazon.com and eBay.com are increasing almost every day now. The average price is now at around $150 for single Hatchimals egg.

Pengulas Hatchimals

Pengulas

As the name suggests the Pengula Hatchimals look like cute little penguins. Available colors of Pengulas are Pink and Teal and in the all Pink Pengulas egg are red and a pink Hatchimals. Pengualas are according to Spinmaster happy-go-lucky Hatchimals who are quirky, friendly, clumsy, and kind. Pengulas are common. Pengulas are sold in all stores that carry Hatchimals.

Burtle Hatchimals

Burtle

Walmart's exclusive Burtle Hatchimals is my personal favorite. Burtles are super sweet Hatchimals with soft shells and butterfly wings, who hail from a magical meadow says Spinmaster. I just love the little curly antennas, which looks much cuter than the Owlicorn's horn. The Burtle Hatchimals is listed on walmart.com. The Burtle is available on the reseller market.

BearaKeet Hatchimals

Bearakeet

The BearaKeet Hatchimals is also cute with its little teddy bear ears. With their unique feather shaped tails and vibrant coats, Bearakeets are the spunkiest Hatchimals according to Spinmaster's description. The BearKeet Hatchimals are Target exclusives and can have a white or black fur. Target lists the BearKeet Hatchimals with a sales price of $49.99 on target.com. Now you just need to find it in stock at a Target store. Find BearaKeet deals in third party offers.

Despite the bad supply situation of Hatchimals, Spinmaster is expanding its retail partners for the Hatchimals. There are now nine stores that offer Hatchimals in store and online, if you find them in stock. New stores including Barnes & Noble and Shokpo. The best option to buy Hatchimals now is on the Amazon.com.

About Hatchimals

Hatchimals are magical creatures that live inside of eggs. Each egg contains one of two interactive Hatchimals. Kids need to care for the toy while it is still inside the egg and its eyes will light up as it makes cute sounds, telling you how it’s feeling.

Once your children have played with it enough, you’ll see rainbow eyes. That means its time to hatch. Hatchimals can’t hatch on their own. Kid's touch encourages them to peck their way out of the egg. Now you get to raise your furry Hatchimal through 3 stages, from baby to toddler, to kid. Your Hatchimal sings “Hatchy Birthday” each time it enters a new stage. Teach yours to walk, dance, play games and more. It will even repeat what you say in its own voice. Hatchimals run on two AA LR6 batteries that are included. The video below released by Spin Master explains in the detail how Hatchimals work and how to play with them.
