Hatchimals On Sale with Higher Prices at ToysRUs and Jet.com
 

Walmart owned online store Jet just sold Hatchimals for $89.99 online.

Retailers are getting smart about Hatchimals. Jet.com sold the hard to find Hatchimals today for $89.99. This is $30 above the regular price of $59.99. ToysRUs had the same idea and sold Hatchimals today for $69.99. Two days ago the price was $59.99.  In the weeks prior, ToysRUs sold Hatchimals for $49.99.

Jet.com does not list the price of Hatchimals on their site when they are not in stock. Zoolert registered the inventory priced at $89.99 at around 10am ET. The Hatchimals sale on Jet.com lasted for 10 minutes. We have not seen any Hatchimals flash sale last that long online ever. The $89.99 is still an attractive price considering that the prices of Hatchimals on the market place are topping $200. Jet.com could also have a big lot to sell. It is unclear why the inventory did not sell in a minute or two as usual.

It is understandable that retailers want a piece of the pie that scalpers are getting for the hottest Holiday toy of 2016. $89.99 is pushing it for this toy, that is not without criticism

While ToysRUs and Jet.com increase their margin, Walmart will sell Hatchimals on Black Friday for $48.88. The price increase on Hatchimals plays in the hands of Walmart. Now their Hatchimals Black Friday deal appears much better. If Jet.com is intentionally supporting Walmart here is not clear. Walmart bought Jet.com just a couple months ago.

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.

Spin Master has underestimated the demand for Hatchimals in the United States. The clever designed Hatchimals push all the right buttons to become a viral hot Holiday toy. The company has warned consumers that the supply of Hatchimals is extremely constraint and the situation will not ease until early 2017. Many kids have to be prepared to not get a Hatchimals this year. Read our Hatchimals Buyer's Guide to help you get a Hatchimals in time for Christmas.

The hardest to find Holiday 2016 gifts include Hatchimals, Nintendo NES Classic, Pokemon Go Plus and the $99 Nintendo 3DS. Use our shopping guide to hunt these hot holiday gifts
