Top 10 Hatchimals
for October 2022

Hatchimals are the hottest toys of the holiday season, and no wonder: They're so cute! Hatchimals are squishy, cuddly toys that come in a variety of colors, including pink, blue, purple, orange, brown, and white. They're also interactive, which means you have to incubate them (with the help of a heat lamp) to unlock them, and, once they're hatched, they can play and interact with each other.

Hatchimals first came out in 2016, but they've become even more popular than before in 2022. Hatchimals are basically stuffed animals that hatch and come to life when exposed to heat. They're made by Spin Master, a toy company that's been making toys for more than 30 years.

Hatchimals are different from most other toys in that they're interactive, which means you have to incubate them using a heat lamp. When you incubate them, Hatchimals come to life and interact with each other. They're also interactive, which means you have to incubate them using a heat lamp.

Hatchimals CollEGGtibles, Neon Nightglow 12 Pack Egg Carton with Season 4 Hatchimals CollEGGtibles, for Ages 5 and Up, Amazon Exclusive

Hatchimals CollEGGtibles

by Spin Master
What We like

We like the neon glow, but aren't fans of the way Hatchimals treat their eggs. Getting them out of the shells is awkward and slow, and the "hatching" process is annoying.

Hatchimals CollEGGtibles, Spring Basket with 5 Characters and 3 Pets, Girl Toys, Girls Gifts for Ages 5 and up

Hatchimals CollEGGtibles

by Spin Master
What We like

Hatchimals are the 2016 toy craze, with retailers struggling to keep up with demand. Our team bought six Hatchimals CollEGGtibles eggs from Amazon, and exchanged them for three of the Spring Baskets, hoping that if we bought more, we'd get cute Hatchimals. We did, but Hatchimals in all the colors, not just the pastel ones you buy in the basket, are hard to come by. That said, Hatchimals Spring Basket is a good buy -- it is the most expensive item in our gift guide, but you'll get a lot for your money.

What We like

The Hatchimals CollEGGtible is exclusive to this playset, and it costs $15. At that price, it's a reasonable value, and we liked the idea of being able to hatch a rubbery furry creature.

These CollEGGtibles toys are adorable and fun! The limited edition glitter characters make them even more irresistible, but if you miss the glittery craze, you can probably find all the other regular Hatchimals characters at toy stores.
