Santa: Elves are working hard to make enough 'Hatchimals'

This year's hottest holiday toy is so popular, Santa's elves can't keep up with the demand.

The "Hatchimal" is an stuffed animal that comes inside of an egg. 

A child must interact with the egg to get the creature to hatch. Once the creature has hatched, the animal needs to be raised.

The bad news for parents: Hatchimals are sold out just about everywhere.

But if you asked Santa for the toy, there could be some good news. 

Some children have received a letter assuring them the Hatchimals will be made and ready - just maybe not in time for Christmas.

The letter assures kids that there are enough toys for everyone who asked for them, but the eggs still need time to develop and won't be ready until January. 

Santa promises that once the egg is complete, it will be delivered by an elf while the child is sleeping.
