Hatchimals North Pole Launched to Comfort Kids on Christmas

Spin Master launched Hatchimals North Pole for those kids who will not find a Hatchimals egg under their Christmas tree.

Spin Master continues to struggle to meet demand for Hatchimals, the hardest to find Holiday toy of 2016. ToysRUs sold Hatchimals on Sunday with shoppers lining up over night in the hundreds. Several ToysRUs stores had over 60 Hatchimals in stock. Spin Master supplied ToysRUs with about 45,000 Hatchimals, based the numbers we received from customers in line. That's not much.

Spin Master warned weeks ago that the will not be able to satisfy the demand for Hatchimals in time for the Holidays. The toy maker promises a new batch of Hatchimals for early 2017. To help kids pass the time and cope with the disappointment not to get an egg on Christmas, Spin Master launched Hatchimals North Pole.

The mini site offers kids a selection of things to do while waiting for their Hatchimals to arrive. Hatchimals North Pole features a Hatchimals memory game, Hatchimals coloring print outs and an actually funny Hatchimals name generator. Catchy Hatchy names include: "Miss Petunia Softypants" and "Miss Dlight Hatchingston."

The Hatchimals North Pole site has a short video that introduces kids to the idea that the Hatchimals eggs need time to grow at the North Pole. That is why kids still have to wait. Parents on the frantic hunt for Hatchimals could consider to drop out of the race and use the site to make an alternative Hatchimals story for Christmas. Hatchimals North Pole is available at hatchimals.com.

The Spin Master online store still shows a banner with the message: "More Hatchimals are coming. Check back soon." The company initially promised an update on Nov. 29, which never materialized.

North Pole is certainly a cheaper option that to spend the still climbing reseller prices on amazon.com. There are no listings under $210.

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.
