Black Friday: Part 2? Folks camp out for "Hatchimals" in Florence

FLORENCE, KY (FOX19) - Folks in the Tri-State waited in line for hours overnight, hoping to get their hands on one of the holiday season's hottest toys.

We heard from some people who got to the Florence Toys "R" Us as early as 1 a.m., in search of a "Hatchimal."

The toys are nearly impossible to find.

But people across the country got some good news when a Black Friday ad website posted an update, saying it confirmed that Toys "R" Us would be releasing an inventory of Hatchimals today at select stores at 8 a.m.

Toys "R" Us also advertised that the other must-have toy of the holidays, the Nintendo Classic Edition Mini NES, would also be on sale.

No word on how many items would be available.

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.

Hatchimals are so popular, Santa Claus issued a letter saying his elves were working hard to keep up with the demand.
