They start interacting with the toy before they hatch from their egg. Your child must take care of the egg as if he or she is the parental figure to get the Hatchimal to hatch.
Once the Hatchimal is born, it will sing, dance, and play games with your children. Unfortunately, this exceptionally popular toy is hard to come by as most retailers are sold out. Per CNBC, Toys R Us restocked their shelves with Hatchimals today. The retailer sells them for $59.99, but they are not expected to stay in stock long considering the high demand for them.
