Hatchimals Mystery Egg Price History

7th September 2018

By Leila El-Dean

I like tea, travel, cameras, food and hot sauce.


Ever since Hatchimals first hit the shelves back in 2016, toy-makers have been trying to emulate that same magic formula. This includes the creators (Spin Master) themselves, who have since released a plethora of different Hatchimals iterations in various shapes and sizes to the franchise. Some worked (CollEGGtibles), some didn't (Hatchimals Surprise) but what was clear is that nothing really hit the mark quite like the original Hatchimals Egg.

This year it looks like Spin Master have gone back to the beginning, adopting a back to basics approach by taking the best bits from the first version and improving upon it. So what exactly has changed?

Back To Square One

Hatchimals Mystery Egg is a lot like the original but with some much needed improvements to the actual Hatchimals toy, which (let's face it) was a little disappointing. The egg hatching process is pretty much the same (why change a good thing) and is still the most captivating aspect of this toy.

However, now you have four new Hatchimals species you can collect (Bunwee, Pandor, Hedgyhen, or Elefly) which not only look different, they do a lot more too. You can tell the different species apart by their by the shape of their ears and patterned fur:

Bunwee has soft rabbit ears, a pink beak and purple, blue and aqua coloured fur.

Hedgyhen has a fluffy mane, yellow beak and pink and aqua coloured fur.

Pandor has brightly coloured fur, purple beak and hot pink and yellow coloured fur.

Elefly has cute round ears, aqua beak and purple and yellow coloured fur.

Note: There's hints at a 'rare' special edition Hatchimals Mystery animal circulating the inter-webs too. No signs of what it looks like yet, so keep your eyes peeled.

Each Hatchimals Mystery species are much fluffier than the previous Hatchimals (that goes double for Hedgyhen) and sport expandable wings (more on that later). Overall, the makeover makes them a little less discount Furby and a little more in-keeping with the Spin Master seal of quality (and its price point).

Unlike the original however, you won't know which one you get until your egg hatches. Previously you could choose which species you'd get (Pengualas or Draggles, then later Owlicorn, Bearakeet or Burtle). Blind bag style toys seem to be all the rage this year, with Poopsie Slime Surprise Unicorn, Rainbocorns and Scruff-A-Luvs also donning the Christmas toy prediction lists. So parents, get ready to spend, spend, spend trying to purchase the right one.

Hold! Hatch! Play!

Like before, the whole hatching process takes approximately 40 minutes and requires around 10-15 minutes of play before it is ready to get cracking. You'll know that your Hatchimal's ready when its eyes start to glow and flash various colours of the rainbow. Of course each Hatchimal is unique, so times may vary so be prepared to be patient. How long it takes ultimately comes down to how you handle the Hatchimal egg which needs your constant interaction and encouragement to hatch. Rub it, tap it and rock it to hear a variety of reactions as it pecks open its speckled egg - it even taps back! It's a little creepy, but gives you something to do whilst you have to wait for it to hatch.

Whilst hatching is pretty straightforward (with cheat sheet in hand), getting it out can after be a little tricky. Each Hatchimal is on a sort of turn-table like contraption. This is how it moves and pecks its way out of the egg, and keeps it in place while you interact with it during the hatching procedure. It takes a very firm tug to pull it out of the egg's base, so small children may need assistance. I was worried about breaking it, but these Hatchimals seem quite robust. Thankfully mine remained in one piece anyway - phew.

Hatchy-Birthday

Once you've removed your Hatchimal from its egg, you need to remove the plastic wrap around its middle. No matter which one you'll get, it will start to sing Hatchy-Birthday. It will sing this song a further 2 more times to indicate it has made it to the next age bracket. There are 3 stages in total (Baby, Toddler and Kid) and each allows you to uncover new games, songs and abilities such as learn your name and repeat phrases as well as dance and walk.

No matter the age, each Hatchimal will let you know what it's thinking, feeling or doing by the colour of its eyes. This is where it gets a bit more complicated. Thankfully there is a cheat sheet to figure out whether it's sick or unhappy. It certainly keeps you on your toes, but might be a little complicated for younger children who can't read for whom it will be more of a patience and memory game.

Like I mentioned earlier, these new Hatchimals has expandable plastic wings. Though mostly for appearances sake, they also activate 'Fly Mode' along with a tactile couple of presses on its belly. Of course Hatchimals don't actually fly (that would be neat), but they do make gargling and whooshing flying noises. When tilting them in an up and down motion, be sure to keep an eye on the colour of their eyes. Too fast and their eyes will go red, too slow and they'll glow white. When they're hungry they'll flash purple. Another interesting feature is 'Walk Mode'. Clap once to move forward and twice to move backwards. Not the most original moves, but as a whole package it's not bad.

Hatchimals Mystery Egg - Hit or Miss?

The entire hatching experience is a great bonding exercise between you and your Hatchimal. And this year, there's the added mystery of which Hatchimal you'll get. You're basically buying this for the hatching experience, which is yet to be replicated or out-done. Whether Hatchimals Mystery Egg is worth the price tag, well that's really up to you, but for the hatching process alone, I think it is... although I doubt I'll be buying more than one of these - Sorry Spin Master.
