I don’t take anything for granted; in fact I’m still surprised that I’ve been as lucky as I have been with my blog.
My children have been given a batch of Hatchimals Colleggtibles to hatch tomorrow (World hatching starts at 5pm on YouTube and Twitter, if you’re interested – just search the hashtag #HatchimalsColleggtibles).
Hatchimal Colleggtible Eggs before they hatch
They’re lucky to be one of the first to get their hands on these Hatchimal Colleggtibles.
But I did question what message I’m being part of.
At Christmas the demand for Hatchimals saw them being traded on Ebay for thousands of pounds *literally!* and parents getting stressed because Father Christmas was going to let down their beloved child.
But me and mine were the lucky ones – we had our Hatchimal, courtesy of this blog. And I do know how lucky I am, even if my Little Shires don’t!
So when we were given the opportunity to take part in Hatchimals Colleggtibles I did question it – do I want to be part of the media hype *again?*
But these Colleggtibles feel different.
Hatchimal Colleggtibles available in Single Packets
This time they’re plenty to go around, so the bum-fight shouldn’t happen, eliminating the unreasonable supply vs demand bargaining.
Yes they’re part of a collectibles range but the makers Spinmaster haven’t set the price too high knowing the demand will be high. They’re available from as little as £4.99 for a pack of two or single packs from £2.99. So more than reasonable and more than attainable.
So we have a batch of Hatchimal Colleggtibles to hatch tomorrow. Inspired by the original Hatchimals, these new ones are not self hatching and are more Shopkin-style collectable items.
I hope you can come back and see what’s inside. I have no idea what to expect from this batch, and neither do the Little Shires but they’re already getting excited. They really don’t know how lucky they are!
