It is so rare to have the opportunity to review toys for my son. He has Autism, so I am very selective with the toys I want him to play with. When I was asked to try the Animal Planet Hatch ‘ems, I quickly agreed! I received samples to review in exchange for my honest opinion.
About the product:
Each egg grows HUGE – most as large as 8″ high – all from a little egg. But more than just growing, each pack represents three animals from a given environment and includes a fact card on each that children can learn about their new found pet.
The Animal Planet Hatch ‘ems arrived last week and as soon as I pulled them out of the box, my son knew they were for him. I had received other packages that I was opening and organizing everything. He wanted me to open the boxes for him to start playing with his new toys. Finally, when I done with what I was doing, I opened a box for him and he quickly took his toys and ran off to play.
Unfortunately with my son’s special needs, I am unable to explain to him that if we let the eggs sit in water for a few days, his dinosaurs will grow bigger. I would love to see that happen, but my son does not have the patience for that and I don’t blame him. I really think the Animal Hatch ‘ems are a cool concept. I know that when I was growing up, I would have liked a toy like this.
Since we received the Animal Planet Hatch ‘ems, my son has been playing with them all weekend. He carries them everywhere he goes! I chose the dinosaur toys for him to receive because he already has dinosaurs, so they would be familiar to him.
There are 24 different animals across Sea, Rain forest, Safari, and Dinosaur themes.
The product is available this holiday season at Amazon and will be expanding into retail in early 2015, including Toys R Us.
