We’re Hatchimals Worth It? 

My kids have only recently hit that age that they start to care about Santa and what they will be getting for Xmas! I only just started getting interested in getting them what they want. I’m not sure if it was really them or me that wanted the Hatchimals. They were both only 3 and I think I wanted them more for them, lol. 


With all $50 Hatchimals sold out ans not much time until Xmas I decided to splurge and found some Hatchimals on Amazon.com for $185/each. Some may think I’m crazy and in retrospect maybe I was. Seems stupid now that they barely play with them but what child’s toy isn’t short lived? My kids get toys all the time that they love for the first 5 minutes and then after that they are moving onto the next thing! 


I’ve wasted a lot of money on useless toys but the kicker was the 24 hours it took for the Hatchimals to hatch. One of them seemed to have been knocked off the track and took longer then the other. Before we could get them to hatch we all fell asleep. I mean hatching these eggs was hard work. I’m the morning we continued where we left off and spent the better part of the day finishing our hatching! It was a long arduous process, especially after I found out its only supposed to really take up to an hour 😵


Overall, We liked our Hatchimals but would have been much happier purchasing them at $50 instead. My girls loved them and were so excited for them to hatch! They loved watching and taking care of them. They do amazing things and If they work and do what they say they are worth it and fun to play with! I think they were anxious and tired of waiting toward the end but they waited, lol

Anyone have a Hatchimal that didn’t hatch? 

Turtle Baby Bath Temperature Reader

This is the best temp gauge for water that I have found. Forget that it’s a cute little turtle this thing tells you the temperature instantaneously and it’s always on the money. I have young children so it’s really important that I test the temperature out before I let my kids in the water to take a bath. What’s even better is they love the turtle and use it as a bath toy.

When I first received it I couldn’t figure out how to get the batteries inside. When I flipped it over there is only one cover with a bunch of screws and I couldn’t imagine I was supposed to remove them all and pull it off. I finally figured it out that it’s all ready to use right out of the box. I’m not sure what type of batteries it takes but I’ll cross that bridge when it comes!

When you place the turtle into the water it instantly lights up either blue, red or green and tells you exactly what the temperature is. Green is cold, blue is warm, and red is hot. It makes it so easy to test the temp and clearly tells you by color and digital reading what the temp is. It can also be used in other areas including pool temp and other things. It really is a great buy and definitely a great gift for new moms and moms to be and if your a parent in general you should have one. I received this product at a discount.
