Bottom line

There are endless ways to play with Hatchimals, and they have new releases coming out all the time. Our pick is the Llalacorn because it's enormous! The adorable creature can also hatch time and time again, and it grows up to 32", shrinking back down when it's held.

If you're looking for something a little smaller, the Hatchtopia 2-Pack comes with mini plush Hatchimals that are only 2" tall. Of course, the original Hatchimal toy is the tiniest in size, and you can get 12 of these teensy toys with a Season 5 Carton. Which Hatchimal will hatch for you (or your kiddos)?
