October 7th date set for reveal of top-secret Hatchimals toy
TORONTO, Sept. 15, 2016 /CNW/ - Spin Master Corp. (TSX:TOY), a leading children's entertainment company, will unveil Hatchimals – one of the most highly-anticipated toys of 2016 – on October 7, 2016.
Spin Master's ground-breaking Hatchimals integrates the company's advanced technology in new and unexpected ways to bridge multiple play patterns. Previewed exclusively to industry at select Toy Fairs around the world earlier this year, Hatchimals is already a contender for numerous toy awards globally and has landed on top toy lists from retailers including Target, Wal-Mart, Toys 'R' Us and Kohl's. For the first time, the public will be able to see and purchase Hatchimals at major retailers and on SpinMaster.com beginning on Hatch Day, October 7 (MSRP $59.99 USD).
To date, Spin Master has only revealed the toy's egg-shaped exterior publicly. Children, ages five and up, can select the color and species of their Hatchimal egg, but who is inside will only be revealed by holding and hatching the Hatchimal.
"Hatchimals 'come to life' from the connection with a child; the inherent nurturing play pattern initiates the experience," said James Martin, Head of Robotics Global Business Unit, Spin Master Ltd. "It is a wonderful bonding and magical experience that continues to evolve. Get ready to see who's inside on Hatch Day and get ready to be amazed."
