You all must have heard about these Hatchimal eggs.For those of you who don’t know Hatcimal are plastic eggs that need be hatched to get a surprise animal from the inside as the name says Hatch-imals (animals) -get it 😝.

Princess Z had been a fan of them since the day they were launched and wanted to get of her own but unfortunately they became out of stock very soon.We tried a lot of times to get our hands on one but were unlucky.

Almost after half of the year pasted by, and it was Eid and Princess Z got her eidi.She was very curious to spend it on that ‘something special’ she had decided to buy and was eager to get her hands on…since long.

So after Eid was over we went to The Toy Store in MOE (Mall of the Emirates) to buy her a Hatchimal egg. We thought it would be easy to get our hands on one since they were relaunched a few days ago) but we were wrong!.After searching the whole of The Toy Store by ourselves we got to know that the Hatchimals were all out of stock again and might take 2-3 weeks to come.Princess Z wasn’t patient enough to wait for them that long so we continued our search.While walking 🚶back towards our car park and passing by the Borders Book 📚 store we saw our life’s getting saved 😃😃.While they were out of stock elsewhere Borders book store had them in stock (a lot of them that is).I could see the happiness on Princess Z’s face when she was selecting her Hatchimal egg.In my mind I thanked Allah for not sending her home disappointed.

Anyway,When we came home 🏡 all of us gathered around and started to pull out the Hatchimal from the box.The egg was very attractive with pink and green spots and the animal inside started to interact right away when we picked it up. *The Hatchimal does come with an instruction manual and an eye color chart menu (of course!)that we do need to follow time to time to keep a watch on its progress and feelings .We cuddled and nurtured it time to time and in the end after around 10mins it started to hatch.It did take approx 30mins for it to hatch completely but we were not disappointed with what we found inside. 😁

The eggs indication and pecking starts for hatching
The hatching starts!! 😁

Princess Z got a Pengualas Hatchimal (you get to find out ONLY after it’s completely hatched).It was not the one she wanted by was happy with it anyway.(Once you get it out of its egg, you’ll have to spend time playing and caring for it).That’s what we have been doing ever since.Each Hatchimal passes through five stages-Egg,Hatching,Baby,Toddler and Kid.

The surprise Pengualas 🐧
Super Cute 💕

These creatures are super cute and their main attraction are their eyes 👀.They’re big, flashing and is the toy’s main mode of communication.The eyes will change color to indicate its feelings (red if it’s mad, purple if it’s hungry, and so on). Super cute isn’t it 💕
*It is to much to remember at first so do keep the eye color chart menu beside you all the time.

It might not the be the most cuddliest toy because of it’s mechanism, but it is super cute and very interactive which will make the kids fall in love😍❤️

IMPORTANT NOTE:The Hatchimal DO NOT hatch without our help and does need a lot of cuddling, love ❤️ and nurture to hatch plus, the egg might take up to 10 to 40 minutes to hatch completely (So be patient!)

Also don’t throw off the egg….🥚 Just turn it into a vase like I did 😉.

Totally suitable for flowers 🌺 🙂


Suitable for kids over 5+

Available at borders book store and BabyShop for 379 and will be available at The Toy Store after a few weeks time.
