Hatchimals disappear quickly at Toys “R” Us Lexington on Thanksgiving
LEXINGTON, Ky.(WTVQ)- Hatchimals, the stuffed animals that hatch from an egg, are the 2016 holiday season’s hot toy. Hundreds of people waited outside Toys “R” Us on Thanksgiving hoping to get good deals on Hatchimals and other toys.
Just seven Hatchimals were in the store at the start of the day. They sold instantly. Toys “R” Us staff gave out tickets to the first people interested in buying Hatchimals.
Customers were later able to collect their Hatchimal at the front of the store.
The toy is going for about $70 at Toys “R” Us right now.
Staff at the Nicholasville Road location say they are not sure if, or when, more Hatchimals will be in stock.
