Spin Master announces Hatchimals Colleggtibles school initiative

Published on: 11th April 2018

Around 20,000 Hatchimals Colleggtibles have been sent to primary schools across the UK. 

Spin Master has announced its latest 360-degree initiative. As part of an extensive educational programme, over 170 primary schools across the country have received approximately 20,000 Hatchimals Colleggtibles to be integrated into the classroom.

An ideal way to encourage and support group play among Key Stage 1 children aged 4-7 years, Hatchimals Colleggtibles also provide teachers and support staff with the opportunity to explore and reinforce the importance of uniqueness, personalities, friendship, and creativity.

The Hatchimals Colleggtibles free schools pack includes teacher notes aligned to the curriculum, and activity sheets that bring it to life for the pupils through engaging activities.

Outreach included a dedicated newsletter to 24,000 head teachers and/or Key Stage 1 Leads which resulted in unprecedented demand, with the free packs being scooped up by teachers and support staff in under three hours.

Charlotte Yates, senior brand manager, Spin Master UK, commented: “We are delighted by the response to our schools’ programme and that our Hatchimals Colleggtibles pack is a valued asset for teachers in the classroom. This programme not only lets pupils experience the excitement around ‘who they will hatch?’, but also helps encourage important discussions around uniqueness and differences linked directly to the curriculum. We look forward to supporting UK schools and KS1 teachers in the future.”

The Hatchimals Colleggtibles egg colour has changed from purple to pink for Season 2, and there are over 100 new characters to collect, from the jungle, garden and more. There are also a limited number of Golden Hatchimals to discover.
