I have two dds, 4 and 6. The eldest wants a hatchimal for Christmas.
I’m reluctant because of the price and reviews from last Christmas where they weren’t played with much after.
My youngest hasn’t asked for anything yet. I wouldn’t be surprised if she ends up asking for the same when she writes her Christmas list.
I had the idea that I could buy one of the surprise eggs with the twins and get them to share. I thought it might help with the play value, if the creatures interact and they can play with them together. They are pretty good at sharing normally and they will get a toy each.
I agree with everyone... firstly they do nothing once hatched (mine never looked at there's afterwards) but every child is different so if you do go for one then I completely agree with Daisy in that you should look at the twin hatchimals. That way both child gets a hatchling
DD2 (5) has asked for a hatchimal and I did toy with the idea of getting both DD’s a joint surprise one but in the end I got them the hatchimal collectibles. My guess is that dd wants to see it hatch. If she still desperately wants one I’ll get her one for her birthday.
