This may be your best shot to get a Hatchimal before Christmas

Orlando-area stores to get hottest toy of year

ORLANDO, Fla. – If you're reading this, you may already be too late.

Hatchimals, the must-have toy of the holiday season -- the one that parents can't find anywhere -- will be hitting store shelves this weekend.

Hatchimals sell for between $50-60, and two popular box stores say more are being shipped.

Target says shipments of the tiny creatures will be available in their stores on Sunday, Dec. 11.

Meanwhile, Walmart has the fuzzy friends currently on the shelves of 1,700 of their stores after receiving a late night shipment Thursday.

Even better, Walmart said shoppers can buy all the Hatchimals they want with no limit. Target is limiting customers to just two Hatchimals.

The store cautioned, however, that customers should check with the store to see if the toy is in stock.

The toy that hatches from eggs has driven parents bonkers as they line up to get their hands on the most important item on their children's wish list.

It looks to be a very happy holiday for Spinmaster, the manufacturer of Hatchimals. The company said it will be producing a new line of toys in 2017.

Hatchimals are interactive stuffed animals that come to life and peck their way out of an egg. Once out of the egg, the Hatchimal progresses through each stage of life.
