I thought last year was the year of Hatchimals and was amazed when we seemed to escape the craze but at the top of Josh and Poppy's Father Christmas list this year were Hatchimals Surprise and Hatchimals Collegtibles. I knew very little about them other than knowing they are an egg that hatch.
They were over the moon when they opened their Hatchimal Surprise and even more excited when they discovered it was twins. The hatching process was definitely the most exciting part of the present. Since their birth on Christmas Day, the kids I'm sorry to say have neglected their Hatchimals. However the Hatchimals CollEGGtibles along with the Hatchery Nursery has been a bigger hit with Josh and Poppy. The Hatchery Nursery is an enchanted forest where you can hatch and care for your CollEGGtibles and in the middle of this forest playlet, you'll find the Hatching Tree (a novel way to break into your little eggs). This kept them amused for a lot longer and they have continued to play with the little hatchimals unlike the poor twin hatchimals which have been abandoned and are now at the mercy of their baby sister, Molly.
