Before rushing out to purchase a Hatchimal, you should be well versed in the Hatchimal types that exist. Not all Hatchimals are the same, and which one you get for your child could matter to them a great deal.
The different species of Hatchimals have unique physical characteristics. Each Hatchimal comes in a different shell, and one species may look more like a bird than another species does. Once they’ve broken through their shell, differences in how they behave will impact your child’s experience with the toy.
That we’re still talking about Hatchimals is surprising. Hatchimals were the surprise hit of the 2016 holiday shopping season back. Typically, whatever toy is hugely popular at the end of the year experiences a huge dip in popularity shortly after. Excitement for them never died down though. They’re still a popular toy because they make great digital pets for kids that aren’t ready to have a real pet that they need to feed and bathe.

They’re still a popular toy because they make great digital pets for kids that aren’t ready to have a real pet they need to feed and bathe. Hatchimals are unpredictable, but you can turn them off when they become too much to handle or your child is no longer interested.
