If your child has been throwing fits over how badly he or she needs a Hatchimal, you’ll soon have another chance to snag one.
Toys R Us on Sunday will stock its shelves with the latest shipment of the red-hot toys, which will sell starting at 6 a.m. for $79.99. While that’s $20 more expensive than the suggested retail price, it’s lower than the going rate on eBay, where resellers are hawking the shelled creatures for more than $100.
Hatchimals previously sold at Toys R Us for $69.99.
If parents still come up empty-handed, members of Toys R Us’ rewards program who shop in one of its stores through Dec. 22, will be entered for a chance to win a Hatchimal.
They can also try Target or Wal-Mart. Target, which sells the toy for $59.99, replenished its supply on Sunday. It will continue to receive shipments throughout the holiday season and into the new year, a spokesperson said. Target shoppers can also purchase a Hatchimal-themed gift card in any dollar amount. (These cards do not reserve a Hatchimal, the retailer notes).
Like Target, Wal-Mart recently restocked its shelves with Hatchimals. There, the toys sell for $48.88. Wal-Mart says it will be getting more Hatchimals throughout the month and into January.
Also Wednesday, Toys R Us said its stores will be open from 6 a.m. to 2 a.m. local time each day from Dec. 17 through Dec. 22. Starting at 6 a.m. on Dec. 23, they will cater to last-minute shoppers by staying open for 39 straight hours, closing at 9 p.m. Christmas Eve.
