Hatchimals in Stock at ToysRUs Stores on Sunday Dec. 18: Updates from the Lines
ToysRUs Owlicorn Hatchimals

The ToysRUs stores are hoarding again Hatchimals in their storage for a big Hatchimals Sale on Sunday. Updated.

The final days of the Hatchimals hunt are underway. ToysRUs is preparing another Hatchimals sale for Sunday. ToysRUs has increased the price again of Hatchimals to $79.99 from $69.99.

This is now $20 above the list price of Hatchimals set by Spin Master. The increased price will not hold off shoppers from lining up early again at ToysRUs stores. ToysRUs stores already open at 6am on Sunday, which shortens the wait in the cold.


Dec. 18. 11am ET: The latest report we received from lines actually show that some TRU stores have no lines. The high $79.99 price has kept away more customers than thought. "The Toys r us in Citrus Park (Tampa) has no line," emailed us Tikana at about 8am ET. "Two associates are standing outside asking customers if they would like to purchase a Hatchimal as they approach the door. They opened at 6am. I left my house at 7am and was the 8th person to purchase a Hatchimal. An associate says she believes this store received 100. She also stated the Brandon location received more than the Citrus Park store."

"Toys R US Carl Place NY has hatchimals. I arrived at 5:40 am doors open at 5:50am they had 80 + I purchase 3. The line was short I was #28 VERY PEACEFUL AND QUICK . Back in my car by 6:10am," emailed us Vanessia also at around 8am ET.

If you still need a Hatchimal, you might be still able to get one now at 11am ET at ToysRUs.

Dec 18. 2am ET: There are lines forming at ToysRUs stores since hours across the Nation. ToysRUs will open early at 6am to sell Hatchimals. Reports from the line indicate that TRU stores have 20 to 30 Hatchimals in stock. Some stores according to social media posts have 50 Hatchimals in stock. Some stores are also reported to have no Hatchimals in stock at all. Tickets will be handed out as early as 5am, but this might vary by store.

Hatchimals shoppers have lined up for Hatchimals over night at ToysRUs stores two weeks ago. Customers have been lining up as early as Saturday afternoon. 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.

Shoppers should look out of the Owlicorns at ToysRUs, they have the highest resell value, as they are the hardest to find. The reseller prices on Amazon for Hatchimals start today at $188.99.

To find a local ToysRUs store, customers can use the store locator at stores.toysrus.com.

Parents voicing their anger about the high price TRU is charging for Hatichmals just days away from Christmas. From a marketing point of view this was not a good idea.

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.
