Hatchimals in Stock at ToysRUs Stores, the Latest
ToysRUs Owlicorn Hatchimals

Customers spent the night at ToysRUs stores to get a Hatchimal.

The Hatchimals are on sale at ToysRUs Sunday morning and the east coast stores are wiped clean shortly after 8am ET. Customers have been lining up as early as Saturday afternoon to have a fighting chance to get a Hatchimals at their local ToysRUs store.

Update: It was easier on Sunday morning to score Hatchimals than NES Classic. We have seen reports of stores having up to 64 Hatchimals in stock. These of course all gone as lines as strong as 300 have formed over night at ToysRUs locations.

Now shoppers have to find other sources to find Hatchimals.

We have been out with the story that ToysRUs will have Hatchimals on Sunday before it was big news. The hype doubled as ToysRUs stores will also have the hard to find Nintendo NES Classic in stock on Sunday.

A ToysRUs Merrillville, Indiana, had 162 people in line at 7am local time. Lots of people walking away after someone said they only have 30 in stock. A ToysRUs in San Antonio, TX has 64 Hatchimals in stock, 16 of them are Owlicorns.

"I got in line at 5:20 a.m. tickets had already been handed out by the manager and there were 12 NES systems and 40 hatchimals, " told us Amanda in line at a ToysRUs lexington, KY. The TRU manager standing outside allowed people to sell their tickets for upwards of $120 plus the cost of the hatchimal, Amanda told us. Customers are prepared to pay $180 for a Hatchimal, especially if it is a Owlicorn. The reseller prices on Amazon have increased to over $229.

The ToysRUs store in Newport News, Virginia had the line seen started at 2pm Saturday. "I am 15th in a line of about 40 people now at 9:30pm," Chas told I4U News in an email. The ToysRUs manager told the line that the store has about 30 Hatchimals and 30 Nintendo NES Classic in stock.

While Chad was lucky, there are many reports on social media saying that people lined up for nothing as not all TRU stores had received Hatchimals.

ToysRUs is imposing a one per customer limit for both items. This might have held off some prospectors, but at a $150 profit on each of these hard to find overhyped Holiday gifts, there are also many resellers in line, competing with parents.

ToysRus advertised Hatchimals in the new ToysRUs weekly ad and the news about restocking of Hatchimals ran on all major news outlets, generating a lot of attention.

When you are in line, please email us (i4u@i4u.com) with some infos on how long the lines are and when the first people got in line. Update us on how many Hatchimals and NES the ToysRUs store has in stock. Above all email us your success story.

The image of Hatchimals in the ToysRUs Weekly ad does not show the ToysRUs exclusive Owlicorn. There are report of shoppers who scored a Owlicorn on Sunday. Owlicorns have the highest resell value, as they are the hardest to find.

ToysRUs recently increased the price of Hatchimals to $69.99. The ToysRUs weekly ad is not stating a price. It is assumed that the $69.99 price will be in effect on Sunday. The MSRP of Hatchimals is $59.99 and Walmart sold them as low as $48.88 in November.

Target has sold Hatchimals online Sunday at shortly before 7am ET. The store did not offer Hatchimals online for a long time. The reseller prices on Amazon have increased to over $229.

About Hatchimals

Spin Master basically took a Furby (for those who can remember what that is) and stuck it inside an egg. Hatchimals are "magical creatures" that already interact with your kids inside the egg. Each egg contains one of two interactive Hatchimals. Kids need to take care of the Hatchimal while its still inside until the rainbow eyes appear. That means its time to hatch. Hatchimals can't hatch on their own. Videos of Hatchimals hatching have gone viral on Youtube. Kids want Hatchimals because the saw commercials and the Hatchimals videos of the Youtube toy review kids.

Touch is guiding them to peck their way out of the egg. Once outside the egg owners raise the furry Hatchimal through 3 stages, from baby to toddler, to kid. The Hatchimal sings "Hatchy Birthday" each time it enters a new stage. Hatchimals can learn to walk, dance, play games and more. Hatchimals also repeat what you say in its own voice.

There several different kinds of Hatchimals that differ in color and kind of the creatures inside. There are also exclusive editions for stores like Walmart. Available Hatchimals include Hatchimals Draggles Blue/Purple Egg, Hatchimals Draggles Blue/Green Egg, Hatchimals Pengualas Pink Egg, Hatchimals Pengualas Pink/Teal Egg, and Hatchimals Burtle Purple/Teal Egg.
