PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

  • Please do NOT rely on receiving an email alert to find you stock. We will send emails on a case by case basis. It is pointless us sending thousands of emails if a retailer only has a few units of stock which get snapped up almost immediately. It just leads to further frustration.

Ours was defective and didn't light up when released from the packaging. Tried manually opening and even changed batteries. A really disappointed little girl on Christmas morning with a "dead" owlicorn.

Wow that is so strange ours did the exact same thing! I was beyond furious as it was a night mare to get hold of and my little girl was so upset! I've emailed spinmaster but doubt anything will be done Sad

Well no actually it did light up when we first got it out of the box and was making noises, then it feel asleep and never woke back up

Our owlicorn didn't hatch out properly. After a couple of pecks it stopped rotating & pecking. We tried some advice on spinmaster website but it never really got going again so ended up breaking into egg to get it out. By this time it had switched off & wasn't coming back on again! Once it was out we switched the on/off switch to off then back on & it started up again & has worked fine since. I think the problem with the hatching was down to something in the mechanism connections getting dislodged due to being thrown around during delivery.

The box is definitely bigger for the owlicorn because of the nest. It will make you feel better if you search videos for owlicorn unboxing. I checked my purple one because the draggles & pengulas are labelled the wrong way around on the side of the box that I have, but I see from one of the videos that this is not abnormal!

I bought one from a seller on eBay for Β£90 he sent it via a French delivery service it only took 2 days to arrive so with shipping I don't think that was to bad. But they must be readily available in France as he had 6 x pink eggs 6 x green eggs and 3 x owlicorn eggs all on the same receipt so they don't have a 1 per person limit either. I don't understand why we're all sold out but there not lol πŸ™ˆ

This is what is posted on the website that make these TOYS may help you make a decision.... A Message From Hatchimals The consumer response to Hatchimals has been extraordinary, exceeding all expectations. We recognise it may be difficult finding this in-demand toy. This is a special time of year and we don’t want anyone to be disappointed, nor do we support inflated prices from non-authorised resellers. More inventory will be hitting retail shelves throughout November but we anticipate this inventory will sell quickly as well. Therefore we have increased production and a whole new batch of Hatchimals will be ready to hatch in early 2017. Thank you for your understanding.

See that's the problem I would pay that price if that was the retail price, but it's the fact the should only be 60, so all I would be doing is lining some selfish money grabbers pockets which I really don't want to do.

I can see people paying more than Β£150 for these in few weeks maybe more .. even if stocks do hit some shops they are too many parents wanting these ..unless you want to spend everyday stood outside in the cold at 6am waiting for stock then to find none ..or every minute of the day online is it worth paying the extra .. i was online on tesco website when they popped up and still missed out...Think of how many people are doing the same

i was the same. its all my little girl had asked for but i explained that santa is trying very hard to make lots of hatchimals but because every little boy and girl wants one he might not be able to get one to you in time for christmas. so he asked if you minded after christmas if he can make a special trip just to our house to bring you one? my little girl was very happy thinking santa was coming to her house twice. she was even telling all her friends. i think as parents we put too much pressure on ourselves but good luck! hope you find one xx and dont pay the ridiculas prices on ebay! its just selfish people making money for their own pockets xx

Thought i could make it into a fun day out with tea as well,not ideal i know but i dont think i could let myself pay double the rrp knowing i was lining a greedy pigs pockets and hopefully once xmas out the way will be able to get them a lot easier!

I've just been offered an owlicorn for Β£100 including postage. Thinking of just going for it now and can't see me getting one in store or online? Does anyone think it's worth waiting just incase they do get stsick?

Aww that's a shame. I honestly wouldn't want to pay that much but at this point it be good just to know you have one and stop looking. Would you settle for another colour?

I have an owlicorn and if I don't get hold of a green one for my son I am considering selling it if I can bare to part with it it's so cute I may keep it for my self lol. Just keep trying. Find when your store has their deliveries as if they get them they won't be around long after that

How do I find out what store she have a delivery? I went to my local one (30mins drive) and they told me they wouldn't be getting any this side of Xmas. I've got twins who have a birthday just before Xmas too

So the rumours about stock on the 17th were false but also heard they may get some today on the 19th. Does anyone think it's worth being at my local store for when they open? I really really don't fancy another wasted trip there and to come away empty handed as usual. I don't trust ringing the stores either as I think they've all been told to say the same thing and aren't being very honest from what I've heard Sad

How far is your local store? Mine is a 5 minute drive and I have been down most mornings this week after getting the owlicorn on my first visit. My local store are brilliant they answer calls and explain in full to each customer even though they are saying the same thing. Ours get a delivery before opening so any stock would be gone within the first half hour to hour. My store never know when they are getting them though not sure if head office would know more.

My store is about 45 minutes drive away but my partner is in work so would mean dropping my 6 year old to my parents as I wouldn't want her to see it and taking my 8 week old baby with me so I can't hang around and wait see, that's why most times I've gone have been a wasted journey Sad when I ring I get the exact same response 'no we don't have any hatchimals and don't know when we will yet any' and that's it. I'm this close to paying the rediculous prices on eBay because it's the only present she's asked for and I don't want to let her down

Ok so not as close as my store so I can see the trek being a wasted visit on most days. Maybe they genuinely haven't had stock. I got mine Tuesday and they hadn't had stock for three weeks. They get delivery everyday before opening but don't know what's on it until it arrives. They don't even put them on the shop floor and at my store everyday there is a handful of people turning up on off chance before they open so advise people to turn up on the off chance of they can as when stock does come in lots likely to go between making the call and turning up. On the day I got mine people were tuning and on their way from other towns whether they were successful is another matter. Wait a bit longer till you go down that route. More stock is supposedly coming so hang in there.

Yeah it's not so bad when the oldest is in school as I just drive down with the baby which I've done a few times but no luck yet, -and sometimes they haven't unloaded the delivery yet and I can't wait around with the baby so that's frustrating too as they might have had them on those days and I've just missed them. Yeah think I will hold off for a few more weeks but if no luck by beginning of December might look into eBay, although I can't stand the throught of paying more than double the price for one when they will probably be readily available after Christmas Sad
