DENVER — A new supply of one of the hottest and hardest items of the holiday season will hit some Colorado Wal-Mart stores on Thursday.
Hatchimals are little furry interactive creatures living inside a large hard-shelled egg. Their best feature is they self-hatch, breaking through the shell after a little bit of coaxing and cajoling.
Toymaker Spin Master unveiled the item in October and they have been all the rage, with retailers selling out a month before Christmas.
Starting Thursday, five Wal-Mart stores in Colorado will receive new shipments of Hatchimals.
- Aurora: 6101 S. Aurora Parkway
- Centennial: 10900 E. Briarwood Ave.
- Cortez: 1835 E. Main St.
- Durango: 1155 S. Camino Del Rio
- Littleton: 13420 W. Coal Mine Ave.
Hatchimals, which are priced at $48.88, will be landing on Wal-Mart shelves through Dec. 19. Dozens per store are scheduled to be delivered.
Customers should check with the stores for when they’re expected to arrive. The shipments are part of a larger national shipment that numbers in the tens of thousands, Wal-Mart said.
