Eliza was first bitten by the Hatchimal CollEGGtibles craze back in May last year, when she unboxed her first ones and its a love affair that has been consistent as they were top of her list for Christmas and her birthday.
Hatchimals CollEGGtibles come inside small, speckled eggs and like their larger friends need your nurturing touch to hatch. Season One eggs were purple in colour, but season two sees them turning pink.
Firstly, you can identify your egg’s family by matching up its speckles to the Collectors list. Then, hold the egg in your hand and rub the purple heart until it turns pink. The pink heart means they are EGG-stra eager to meet you, but you can open the egg whilst the heart is still purple if you really cannot wait.
To open the egg, press down on the heart with your thumb and you will find your Hatchimals CollEGGtible inside which you can then identify from the Collectors List.
Season two packs are even more exciting as you could find the mysterious Golden Hatchimal in specially marked packs. If you manage to find the Golden Lynx, call the Spin Master customer service helpline to claim your prize!
Sadly we didn’t find a golden lynx in ours, but we did find a super rare Hatchimal, Kitty Can, much to Eliza’s delight.
Eliza has quite a collection now and the great thing about Hatchimals CollEGGtibles is that they can be taken anywhere and I have already been informed that they are coming on holiday with us.
You can see all the new Hatchimals CollEGGtibles over on hatchimals.com. They are available nationwide at all good toy shops, with prices starting from £2.99 and suitable for age 5+.
