How did I totally miss this fad, in 2016? Well, if I had still been a liquidator then, I’d’ve been on it like paint.
“Hatchimals” were the red-hot, gotta-have-it Christmas item that year (and what does that tell us about our priorities?), they were just flying out of the toy stores. It was this big plastic egg that was supposed to hatch out a cute toy animal.
Except an awful lot of them simply didn’t work. Might as well try to hatch something out of a softball. And a lot of little kids were disappointed.
Somebody didn’t do their product testing, did they?
As every liquidator knows, stuff like this happens all the time. That’s why warehouses are full of junk to liquidate.
Ought to make you a little careful, shouldn’t it, about relying on Artificial Intelligence programmed by sinners and nincompoops.
