Are Hatchimals Colleggtibles or Hatchimals Pixies best?
The original Hatchimals were fluffy creatures that hatched from an egg. Since then, so many more Hatchimals toys have been released that it’s tough to keep up. If you’re trying to decide between Hatchimals Colleggtibles and Hatchimals Pixies, learning more about each will help you reach your decision.
Hatchimals Colleggtibles are small creatures that come in individual eggs. Hatchimals Pixies are humanoid fantasy creatures that come in a range of forms, including figurines, flyers and riders with a winged horse.
From Beanie Babies to Pokemon Cards, kids have a long history of loving to collect things. These toys are yet another toy that has become part of the collecting craze. The popular Hatchimals Colleggtibles are tiny figurines that generally come in individual eggs. Kids won’t know exactly which figures they’re going to get until they hatch the eggs, so they’re big hits with kids who love blind bags and unboxing videos. Of course, this means that you can end up with duplicates. However, it also gives kids the opportunity to trade if they have friends who also collect them.
While Hatchimals Colleggtibles are cute and great fun to collect, they don’t do anything. This makes it so that there’s limited scope for play. They can cost anywhere from around $5-$10 for one or two figures to $50 for large play sets.
Hatchimals Colleggtibles pros
- Hatchimals Colleggtibles feature a range of adorable creatures. Some are real but most are imagined. Therefore, they are popular with many animal lovers.
- You can buy either packs that just contain figures in eggs or play sets with some figures and an accompanying structure.
- There are various ranges of Hatchimals Colleggtibles, including Wilder Wings, Shimmer Babies, Mermals and Cosmic Candy, so there’s something to interest most kids.
- Hatchimals Colleggtibles come with a checklist showing all the figures available in a particular range, which lets kids see which ones are left to collect.
- You can go online to the Hatchimals website or app to discover more about the personality of each Colleggtible.
Hatchimals Colleggtibles cons
- Larger sets of Hatchimals Colleggtibles often contain some figures without eggs. This can be disappointing for kids who get a kick out of hatching these critters from their eggs.
- The potential for duplicates can be frustrating. It’s a gamble as to whether you’ll get figures you already have, especially if kids want to complete their collection.
