If your kids are ANYTHING like mine, they might be slightly addicted to YouTube.... and they might be watching a magic egg video as you read this.
The thing about the magic egg videos is this.... YOU CAN'T LEGALLY GET THEM IN THE U.S.! Most of them, anyways. So our kids watch longingly, dreaming of things that will never become a reality.
This month, a toy was released (and YES, you CAN get it here, too!) that combines Furby-like creatures with the magic egg concept. Your kids will open the box, and love on the egg (the eyes shine through different colors, telling them what they need to do to make the egg hatch). When the egg is happy enough, it will start to poke through it's shell, releasing a cute little creature that they can play with afterwards!
At about $50 a toy, it's not a cheap alternative to the magic eggs, but I can tell you that your kids will love them! How do I know this? It's something my kids have been drooling over since they discovered it on YouTube!
I'm pretty sure this is going to be a hit toy for Christmas this year! They are already sold out in some places, but (at the time of writing this), I see that they are available online at Target!
If you get this toy, leave a review of it in the comments! I'd love to see what your little egg-hatchers got!
