If you follow some of my favorite blogs, then, you’ll know by now that the secret is out of the bag. The next installment of Hatchimals is here, it launched on Friday and all I can say is it’s double the size and double the fun! 


Yes, I know I teased you all terribly with this post and many of you thought I was going to announce some freak of nature twin pregnancy, but I’m not, I promise, it was just a teaser of the Hatchimals fun that was to come!


Eep! Something exciting is coming! I can’t wait to share it with you!

They’re baaack…..

You’ll remember that last year, Hatchimals was the most sought after gift for kids last Christmas, selling out everywhere months before Christmas and we were thrilled to be able to participate in last years reveal so my girls were doubly excited when we were asked to participate again this year!  

Twice as cute! Twice the fun!

This years Hatchimals are even better than the first installment. Aside from the fact, you’ve probably figured out by now, the surprise is that the extra large egg houses twins, but I also found the hatching process far easier this year. It was quicker than before which meant that Ava didn’t lose interest in nurturing her egg because she could see the egg physically start to hatch within seconds of rubbing, cuddling and talking to it!

Her reaction was priceless when she discovered the surprise….

Both Ava & Hannah are completely taken with their new Hatchimals, whose names they’re struggling to decide on, but they are so in love, they even took our two Hatchimials babies with us away this weekend so that they could spend some time with them, nurturing them through the various phases of their development. Our Hatchimals are already at a stage where they interact really cutely with each other! 

Out NOW!
