The wait is finally over!! It is officially #HatchimalDay!

Something huge happened for my little blog this week.

I was asked to review and run a Giveaway for Just Fun Kidz for the brand new “Hatchimals Surprise” toy that is being launched worldwide on Friday 6 October.

My exact words were, “I’m going to be ‘Mom Of The Year’ and can now retire from blogging.”

Maybe I went a little overboard but just in case you were in any doubt, No, I have never been one of the ‘cool kids’.

The Excitement Was Building

Once I received the first sneak peak teaser pictures and videos, the girls suddenly started swarming around my desk asking why I, their miserable mommy, was suddenly looking at pictures and videos of Hatchimals. No flies on my eldest though, she immediately knew that it was for my ‘blob’ (I despair sometimes, I really do), and did not stop nagging me until she literally broke me down and I told her that yes, I was waiting for a ‘parcel’.

To say it got worse after that is an understatement. The courier deliveries here in the Free State are a little slower than up in Gauteng and so instead of it being a ‘next day’ delivery, it was a ‘two day’ delivery. Two. Very. Looong. Days!

They have many, many, MANY, Hatchimals Colleggtibles, but this was to be their first ‘giant Hatchimal’.

The excitement level was literally off the scale!

I’ve prepared a slide show of their first real unboxing experience which was peppered with a lot of ‘sit back’, ‘give your sister a chance’, ‘get off the table’, and ‘don’t drop it!’​

​So did you figure out the ‘surprise’ part yet? Hatchimal Twins!


At first I was super stressed about how I would get my TWO little girls to share ONE Hatchimal, but when I realised that the actual surprise is that there are two hatchimals in one egg, I knew it would be fine. The girls were so surprised to find two Hatchimals in one egg… and they are now so in love with their respective twin.

They really are amazing toys.

Each egg only hatches once, but once they have hatched each twin goes through four more stages (5 in total):

  • Stage 1 – In Egg
  • Stage 2 – Hatching
  • Stage 3 – Baby
  • Stage 4 – Toddler
  • Stage 5 – Kid.

Eventually when they get to Stage 5 you can actually play games with each one, and they even have a twin game that they play together. It’s so sweet. My girls haven’t put them down, even sleeping with them last night.

My two little girls are over the moon with their Hatchimals Surprise.

Thank you so much to the lovely people at Just Fun Kidz.

Each Hatchimals Surprise retails for R1499.00 each. Stock is available at the following retail stores:

Selected Checkers, Hamleys SA, Lilliputs, selected Makro, Loot, The Kid Zone, Toy Adventures, Toy Kingdom, Toyzone and Toys R Us.
