- They’re So, So Fluffy: This time around these cuties are even fluffier than ever before. Plus, their wings are now expandable to it’s a total upgrade on all levels.

[ Update: April 2018 ]
We hate to admit that we still kind of love all things ‘Hatrchimals.’ The Hatchimals Surprise last year was something we were excited about for months before the release. Well this year will be no different because the geniuses at Spinmaster announced (and showed off) the latest Hatchimals that’ll take over your kids Christmas list this 2018 holiday season. They’re called ‘Hatchimals Mystery’ and, well, they’re quite the mystery.
Highlights of What We Know:
- How many will there be: There will be 4 different Hatchimals Mystery eggs.
- How much is the new Hatchimals Mystery: The retail price is $59.99.
- When can you pre-order them: Currently slated for August 2018.
- Where can you buy them: Most likely online at Amazon, Target, and Walmart.
Hatchimals Mystery will officially launch and be ready for purchase (although we feel like it’s going to be more of a pre-order situation) in August of 2018. That’s actually not thatfar away. And, even better, it still gives you and/or Santa enough time to get your act together prior to the holiday rush. The really cool thing about these Hatchimals Mystery eggs is that they’re basically new and improved and really respond and interact with you and your child more than ever before. Apparently there are special sensors on the Hatchimal that helps it interact with you more and more. You can help ‘love it’ out of its shell during the hatching process, teach it words so it can start to have Hatchimal-like conversations with you, play with it upside down, tickle its belly, teach it tricks based on hand clapping gestures and so much more. To us it seems like it’s a cuter, furrier, more lovable Fingerlings Monkey (although you know we still love those monkeys too!).
From what we know now there will be 4 different Hatchimal Mystery eggs all with their own cute look and personality. The kicker is that to stay true to its mystery, uh, you won’t know which one you’re actually getting until it hatches and then the mystery is officially revealed. In a world full of predictable things, we love that there’s excitement and mystery surrounding this up until the very last minute. Your child, perhaps, may not overly love the mystery especially if there’s a specific Hatchimal they had their heart set on. So how many parents will just be purchasing all four and basically be playing Russian Roulette with them until your kid cracks a smile? Just us?
As you can see from the sneak peek that was given at the 2018 New York City Toy Fair, these cute little Hatchimals Mystery friends are fluffier and furrier than ever. Some have longer hair, longer wings, and floppier ears. We cant’ wait!

Original Article About the ‘Hatchimals Surprise’ Posted August 2017.
And surprise (!!) because it’s highly coveted and kept under wraps with everyone scratching their head trying to figure out just exactly it will be. From what we know from Spinmaster (the evil geniuses behind the new Luvabella doll people are losing their minds over), they’ve iterated on their original popular Hatchimals line by coming up with a new hatching process and are going to introduce a bunch of new characters to meet. If there isn’t some kind of sloth or kangaroo mixture I’m going to be pissed.
The release date is slated to be October 6, 2017, which coincides with “International Hatchimals Day” (which, yes, is actually a thing) with pre-order available from a bunch of retailers on Monday, September 18th. The suggested retail price is $69.99, which is slightly higher than the original Hatchimal, but this little surprise is supposed to be so much better. “Hatchifans” (yep, again, that’s really a thing) are claiming this is a Hatchimal like no one has ever seen. We’re intrigued.
[ Update: October 6, 2017 ] The new Hatchimal Surprise has officially been released and it’s TWINS!
Spoiler Alert: These are What’s Inside the Hatchimals Surprise
Congratulations! You’re having TWINS! That’s right folks, the Hatchimals Surprise is that there are the cutest little twins ever inside that ‘bigger than normal’ egg! Like last year there are different creatures and some are exclusive to certain retailers. First off, a bunch of these leaked on eBay (go figure) so you can see what they look and, if you wanted to, you could buy them now before you have to fist-fight someone in a store during Christmas (we’ll update here at IBBB when additional retailers start to list them – hello Amazon!)
Also what’s so super-cool is that whatever your Hatchimals Surprise actually is, they can play games with each other. And, even better, you can play games with it. However, our favorite pieces is that once your Hatchimal is at a certain stage, you can actually teach it to talk. Simply press its head and tell it whatever you want it to say. It’ll repeat it back in a cute little Hatchimal-like voice. It’s pretty amazing.
