TORONTO, Oct. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Spin Master Corp. (TSX: TOY; www.spinmaster.com), a leading children’s entertainment company, is celebrating it’s second annual Hatchimals Day with the release of the highly anticipated, Hatchimals Surprise™ (www.hatchimals.com). Hatchimals Surprise features new eggs, a new hatching process and new species. Like the original Hatchimals launched in 2016, kids can care for the egg and guess who’s inside! They can’t hatch without your love, and when your Hatchimals is ready to hatch, the big surprise is revealed…it’s TWINS!
“We saw millions of successful hatches around the world last year, delivering a magical hatching experience for kids and their families,” said James Martin, Senior Vice President, Robotics. “With the launch of Hatchimals Surprise, we are delivering everything the original Hatchimals did and more. The early response has been incredible, and we’re excited to celebrate our second annual Hatchimals Day.”
Hatchimals Surprise come in two adorable species of creatures – Giravens and Peacats – each with their own unique personality. Kids will need to nurture each Hatchimal with love in order to help it hatch and then through interactive play will help their creatures progress from baby, to toddler, to kid. Best of all, the twins love spending time together and they can recognize one another – including telling secrets, playing games and dancing – creating endless play opportunities for kids.
“Since the global launch of Hatchimals, we’ve seen a tremendous response from fans globally and we are thrilled to expand the world of Hatchimals through strong story telling, and one of a kind product offerings,” said Ben Gadbois, Spin Master’s Global President and COO. “Innovation is a key growth strategy for Spin Master. We are constantly driving innovation across our entire portfolio of brands. The launch of Hatchimals Surprise is a great example of our global, collaborative innovation process.”
