Having two kids who are avid TV watchers (especially my daughter), I’ve seen many many YouTube videos and commercials, and I can tell you beyond a shadow of a doubt that one of the hottest toys this year is HATCHIMALS. If you are out of the toy loop, these are toy eggs that the child peels open to find a surprise mini doll or animal inside.
And the kids love them, and they even will sit for hours watching videos of OTHER people peeling the Hatchimal eggs to see what’s inside. It might be a Pixie doll or a mermaid (mermal) or a little pet hatchimal. All of them are adorable little creatures, and the kids are going wild over them.
Because there are SO MANY different Hatchimals to choose from, I am going to narrow it down for you to the best Hatchimals of all, so you can easily choose the best of the best of this hot item, guaranteed to be an exciting gift for almost any kid!
All Hatchimal sets are made for ages 5 and up (but my 3 year old loves them, too!)

Hatchimals Pixie Crystal Flyer
This is THE hottest Hatchimal right now, and super hard to find! But I see they are back on Amazon and if you have a child 6 and older I would make sure to grab one of these. These are reminiscent of the Skydancer toys, only better! They are sparkly pixie dolls that fly up in the air and twirl around, but these don’t just drop to the ground; you can keep your Crystal Flyer going by guiding it with your hand. Just hold out your palm and the Crystal Flyer will go (mostly) wherever you want! In addition, they are rechargeable! A fun, beautiful and amazing toy that every girl wants this year!
