Our two girls get obsessed with the latest must haves. Recently we ventured to Tamworth to see Toys and Me star Tiana at the Launch of Hatchimal CollEGGtibles. Since then Hatchimals Colleggtibles keep getting sneaked into our shopping baskets.
Hatchimals CollEGGtibles Mystery Puzzle
We were sent the Hatchimals CollEGGtibles Mystery puzzle by Spin Master to review. Abigail was a little excited to get her hands on more Hatchimals related items. Imogen was excited about the idea that the puzzle contained a exclusive CollEGGtible.
The Jigsaw inside the box is 48 pieces and aimed at children aged 5 years and up. Also inside the box is a pink holder that contains the exclusive Egg. The egg is pink with a purple colour changing heart, while the standard CollEGGtible eggs are light purple with a heart. It is only upon opening the box do you get to find out which character the puzzle is of.
The mini character matches the image on the puzzle. Although it took a little while for it to sink in as the girls were coo-ing over the tiny purple creature.
Building the puzzle
It had only dawned on me a couple of days later that Abigail hasn’t really played with Jigsaw puzzles much. The last puzzle she had done properly was possibly a couple of years ago. Although that would have been only a couple of pieces.
The 48 pieces in this puzzle are all relatively square and regular shaped. As the colours are graduated it shouldn’t take long for the puzzle to come together. Imogen created the outer frame, while Abigail pieced together the character, starting with the eyes. Watching the girls hand eye coordination was interesting. One of them seemed focused on matching the picture primarily, while the other focused on the shape of the pieces.
Both girls enjoyed the Hatchimals CollEGGtibles Mystery Puzzle. Since initially solving the puzzle Abigail has made it again already. The exclusive egg turns this puzzle into a must have for avid collEGGtors.
We can also confirm that the purple deer character isn’t on the Series 1 check list.
At the time of reviewing this item, it had not been released in the stores in the UK. We will update this with a links as soon as they are released.
