While the search for the this year’s hottest holiday toy craze – the Hatchimal – has taken many consumers shopping online and overseas, one lucky person will be able to pick one up free of charge in the Twin Counties.
The Hatchimal, which is sold out at just about every major U.S. chain, has sent holiday hopefuls far and wide in search of the elusive toy. But one local business, Access Home Health Care and Rehabilitation of Woodlawn, will be giving away one of the furry creatures for Christmas.
“It will probably be one of the last ones in the area before Christmas,” said Mindi Lineberry of the local business, which plans to move to Galax across from WalMart sometime soon after the start of the new year. “We do have a Hatchimal we are giving away on our Facebook page. They are sold out everywhere and won’t be back until April, and people are selling them on Amazon for up to $500.”
To enter to win the Hatchimal, contestants must “like” the Facebook page for Access Home Health Care and Rehabilitation LLC, share the original post about the Hatchimal giveaway, and comment their favorite holiday or Christmas tradition. The drawing is set to be a live drawing on Facebook at 4 p.m. on Thursday, December 22.
