New Competition! WIN A Hatchimals CollEGGtibles Season 2 Hamper!

Remember my post on how ridiculous birthday parties have become? Well, I kind of feel that way about Easter as well. Every year we buy enough Easter eggs to last a year – we go completely overboard and then get upset because the kids ate too much chocolate and their tummies hurt.

This year we did things a little differently… We got a few of their favorite Easter treats and added a few of the new Hatchimals CollEGGtibles Season 2 eggs as “rewards” – Mikayla’s 1st term results were absolutely stellar! And our little Knox is just thriving in his new school… we had a lot to celebrate in our home over this Easter period, but we will get to that in a different blog post.

I don’t know why we did not think of it before, they are such a great alternative to sugary treats and can be used for party packs at birthday parties, or as a reward system for chores!

The new Hatchimals CollEGGtibles have launched at all major retailers – Hamleys, Toy Kingdom, Toyzone, Toys R Us, Takealot, Toy Adventures and Liliputs stores all have stock.  There are over 100 creatures to collect in Season 2 and there is a RARE and elusive GOLDEN hatchimal to be found… good luck! The new Hatchimals retails between R79.99 and R899.99 depending.

I have a hamper up for grabs valued at R500.00 – all you have to do to stand a chance to win some of the new Hatchimals CollEGGtibles is follow the easy Rafflecopter steps below:

  1. my son is not allowed candy or sugar items, I might seems to hard on him now but I would not like to see 2 year old with rotten teeth

  2. I would rather give my two daughters small toys than chocolates or sweets. They did get chocolates over Easter but they were limited to 4 each. Small toys is definitely a great substitute…kids love toys!

  3. Lucky for me ma kids aren’t big chocolate eaters or even sweets for that matter so I do think small toys are an awesome substitute.

  4. My daughter has never been n big chocolate fan, so we never go overboard with sugary treats. One big bunny and a few little chocolate is about it, she loves the hunt more than the eating, I love your idea and think she would’ve freaked had she found some hatchimals, definitely gonna do it in future

  5. Yes i try my best to limit their sugar intake. Toys last longer so that is definitely a great idea and money well spent

  6. I definitely do. They got quite a pile of easter eggs from family.. and so far they have only eaten 3 each. Those easter eggs will probably last a good few months lol. Little toys as a substitute is a fantastic idea.

  7. I am every blessed, chocolates are not too in healthy, especially the dark chocolate, My children are quite awesome when it comes to sweets, not huge sweet fans, more chocoholics😃😄
    They prefer toys then sweets, but can’t say no to chockies😆😆

  8. And I always put a tooth brush in with the eggs so she remembers to brush. She knows her boundaries but with all she has been through pigging out a little for one day isn’t so bad but she is a good kid she shares her “booty” as she calls it with everyone!

  9. I also went with toy route this year, though more puzzle books and art items…crayons and pencils, etc. My kids honestly didn’t touch the chocolate. My daughter isn’t a huge chocolate eater but likes Lindt….so I got her a box. She ended up giving them all away to toddlers. I almost cried! lol

  10. Well my daughter is only a toddler , and sugar makes her seriously hyper and a little bit much lol. So she was allowed to have a bunny at school and only 1 bunny chocolate over the weekend. And we ended up getting her a suprise barbie packet.

  11. Hi there, well the fact that this was our first Easter as vegans (from vegetarian) made choosing eggs and treats much harder but justified the lesser quantity hahahahaha (is that cheating)😝 I think little toys are also nice alternatives but through it all, we remember that we are sharing gifts and sweets to say thank you for the awesome sacrifice Christ made for us. ❤️❤️❤️

  12. Yes, I did try to limit our little boy’s sugar intake, although it was extremely difficult with all of the extra Easter treats. Small toys are an excellent distraction.

  13. I do try to limit the sugar intake with my boys, they get a couple of chocked and an activity and or story book each( also to try to keep them a little occupied over the holidays 😉) and then after Easter Day they are allowed one chic per day!

  14. Normally its a watch what you eat but certain occassions I let her indulge, Easter being one of them as some of the goodies are only availabl during this time, Small toys are a alternative way…but kids will be kids they want a bit of both

  15. I love the idea of substituting chocolate eggs. Pity that the chocolate ones are way cheaper hahaha. My daughter is a sugar freak so I try my best to give her alternatives, like a yoghurt, rice crisps etc, but I am sure that she would much rather prefer hatchimals hahahaha.

  16. Hi there, I think that I do sort of half heartedly limit the amount of chocolate my kids eat, mainly because I don’t fancy them throwing up everywhere. I think small toys actually are a great substitute, but possibly a bit pricier, unfortunately x

  17. Definitely, especially since they hatchimals crazy , they ll be more then willing to drop the sweets in exchange for cool small toys like the hatchimals

  18. Fingers crossed…my kids would LOVE this. Total Hatchimal fans!!! Also opted for only a few small good quality chocolates and a gift instead. Have done this for the last 3 years and it works like a bomb…kiddies are happy and mommy is happy ☺️. Win win!

  19. I’m a bad mother… I let the kids run wild over easter.
    In the end though they calm down and are quite willing and eager to not eat sweets for a whole.

  20. Our little Evelyn is not fond of chocolates or candy so at Easter its no stress about over indulging in sweet treats.
    The substitute of toys is a great idea as a fun and educational toy is a investment in a child’s learning skills and growth or a plush toy to cuddle with. There are various toys available and its great to get a toy that will have a child’s attention and a distraction of sweet treats.

  21. Well she got alot of easter goodies but still have left. I ask her dont you think you have enough sugar already. I try to educate her to much sugar is not good for you. If she say no I simply tell her I think you had enough sugar for one day try agai next week. Lol

  22. I have to limit my godchild with sugar intake other wise he is like 6 little toddlers running around. So small toys are great rewards

  23. I limit my 2 little girls at Easter with a small piece of chocolate a day. We have a rather large family so they get tons of eggs. We’ve also gotten them to focus more on the meaning Easter than the fun frills.

  24. being a mom of 3 its too expensive for me to go all out on easter. i normally only buy a box of the beacons eggs and a bunny each…. would love to be able to afford the hatchamals for easter my kids would of gone crazy.

  25. Small toys are better than giving children sugar. Childhood obesity and teeth problems is all sugar causes.limiting amounts are best.

  26. Only fruits and nuts for our little one, closest thing to sweeties are dried fruits 🙂 She is not into sweets , Thank God and THANKS to me with good teachings. She loves toys though and would love this AWESOME PRIZE

  27. I do try to curb my toddler cause he has enough energy without having sweets and chocolates.
    Small toys for him is not always a good cause most things goes straight in the mouth, so I would try to get him bigger sized toys.

  28. Small toys are a great substitute for easter eggs, especially the hatchimals. Another thing we did was encourage her to share her stash with the family as it’s way too much sugar for suchva small person

  29. Yes i think limiting the sugar is good, but still allow them to have fun. Also toys instead of choccie is always a good idea 🙁

  30. To be honest, we went a bit crazy with the chocolate stuff. It’s Oden’s first Easter that he understands and I was totally overjoyed at building up the Easter bunny excitement! Now he asks me for his “green bucket” a million times a day because it’s full of chocolate lol

    1. That’s okay… sometimes I think Oden can do with a bit of sugar… he is way too calm compared to Knox and Mikayla! HAHA, makes me look bad

  31. So we don’t do Easter in our house, but in general I think simple is better so small toys to balance the sugar isn’t bad idea. My daughter absolutely loves Hatchimals, and I am sure if we did Easter she’d be stoked with them in lieu of sweets

  32. We try to limit all sugar, but It’s difficult when the extended family bring treats around. Small toys take their attention away from treats, but then we also have to balance expectations and patience and taking care of their things.

  33. I try to limit their intake and usually buy an egg that comes with a toy or something as the main egg, then they get some marshmallows to fill up the gap so to speak.

  34. I think small toys are a great substitute! We tried to give our children a good mix of both this year. In the end, they got sooo much chocolates as gifts too, but this is exactly the time we will allow it, especially since it’s school holidays too.

  35. My two boys loved the hatchimals. Even used their tooth fairy money to buy more. This easter we focused more on small toys in plastic eggs which was a healthier and more exciting alternative. Love them they are such cuties.

  36. I love this idea of replacing sugar with small toys! My daughter has ADHD. Add too much sugar to her day and she is bouncing off the walls and driving me crazy! This idea will ensure she still has a great easter hunt without thw sugar fall out later.

  37. As my little boy is only 15 months old, I try as much as possible not to give him anything laden with sugar (we try to eat balanced meals everyday). Grandpa did get him an Easter egg though but he was completely disinterested in it. 🙂 I love the idea of giving them toys or activities instead.

  38. I dont limit my daughter as she is not a big chocolate eater. But small toys would be an excelllent substitute

  39. My daughter got some small toys and finger puppets as part of her Easter hunt. I also requested that family members not give as many chocolates and sweets this year

  40. Absolutely brilliant idea- keeps the festive feeling but limits the sugar intake! And the kids are obsessed with hatchimals 😍

  41. As the grandpa… mmmh I didn’t do any limiting.. ok.. so they weren’t allowed to eat everything all at once.. it went home for mom and dad to decide when.. but the toy substitute is brilliant.. will try that next year.

  42. Such a good idea! I limit the amount of sugar that they eat but they do have the occasional special day like Christmas and Easter that things do get a bit out of hand… especially with all the Aunties and grannies that love to spoil them! Deffinitly going to do this!
