As if things couldn't get more complicated!  

BUT before you totally freak out...we've got answers! 

What on earth IS a Hatchimal?!

Well they're basically the No.1 best selling toy this Crimbo and every kid wants to get their little mitts on one.

The interactive toy has flown off the shelves since it first landed last month and shops such as John Lewis, Tesco Direct and ASDA George have already sold out.
