"Time to Hatch a new friend!"
- Penguala, Adventures in Hatchtopia

Hatchimals are interactive robotic toys that "hatch" from their own eggs. The idea arose from the popularity of unboxing videos on YouTube - Hatchimals would be a toy that could "unbox" themselves after interacting with their new owner over a period of time. Introduced in 2016, they quickly saw a high demand that rivaled other sought-after toys like Tickle Me Elmo.

Hatchimals are from the fictional world of Hatchtopia. Originally, there were five species based on mash-ups of real-world animals: the Owlicorn, Penguala, Draggle, Burtle, and Bearakeet.

The Hatchimals lineup now includes more Hatchimals species, small plastic figurines, fairies, and much more. They also star in their own cartoon series.

Our drawing guide illustrations feature the Penguala. This Hatchimal is primarily based on the penguin. Pengualas typically have a friendly, positive, and outgoing personality.
