"We quickly worked, and continue to work, to secure more of the prized eggs to ensure they make it under the tree ready to hatch on Christmas morning," said Molly Blakeman, a Walmart spokeswoman.

Walmart joins Target, Toys R Us and other retail stores receiving a new shipment of Hatchimals. Walmart recommends customers check with their local store for the most up-to-date availability.

They are being sold for $48.88 at Walmart, a discount from the regular retail price of $59.99.
