Walmart will begin to receive a new shipment of Hatchimals, one of the hottest toys this holiday season.

Hatchimals are little furry interactive creatures living inside a large hard-shelled egg. Their coolest feature is they self-hatch, breaking through the shell after a little bit of coaxing and cajoling.

The toys are priced at $48.88 and start landing on shelves December 8 through December 19. Walmart is scheduled to receive dozens per store.

There is no limit per store on purchasing.
