We found out something very surprising from an employee at Sears. Hatchimals are in stock at the Sears Black Friday sale.

Sears is a popular place for people to shop on Black Friday if they are looking for one place to get everything done. Sears has departments for just about everyone, and their Black Friday sales include each and every department.

We asked a current employee about where the best places to go when you are trying to make the most out of your Black Friday trip to Sears:

What Time Should I Get to Sears on Black Friday?

You’ll have to do some searching on your own to see when your local Sears opens on Black Friday. Many stores will open at 6 PM on Black Friday, but others, especially those located in malls, won’t be open until 5 AM on Black Friday.

What Are The Most Popular Black Friday Deals At Sears?

According to our source, the most popular Black Friday deals this year are somewhat surprisingly. They’ve clocked in a lot of calls for the mattress specials as well as treadmills – so people are obviously caring about their health this year. Some of the other popular gift deals include 40% off Shark Vacuums, all of the tools, fragrances, 30% clothing, and grills. Find all deals to be on sale in the Sears Black Friday 2016 Ad.

The doorbusters are always really busy and people tend to get them very quickly. Still, our insider says that there should be plenty go around.

Will Sears Have Hatchimals on Black Friday?

Here’s a great tip from our insider – Sears has been able to keep Hatchimals in stock a little longer than many other stores. People just don’t think about going there for the newest and best toys, so they’ve remained fairly hidden for some time. Still, most of your local Sears stores will be sold out of Hatchimals until Black Friday at this point. They may be getting a new shipment.

Tips from Sears Employees on Black Friday Shopping

One of the biggest tips this insider gave us is that people often forget to bring the ads with them and they lose out on coupons. In order to get some of the best deals of the season, you have to bring the coupon with you.

Hatchimals Situation

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 increase their margin offering Hatchimals online above the MSRP, Walmart will sell Hatchimals on Black Friday for $48.88. Find all stores offering Hatchimals in our Hatchimals shopping guide.

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.
