A class-action lawsuit has begun against Spin Master following the failure of many of their popular Hatchimal toys to operate correctly. The suit comes after a holiday season that left many children unable to enjoy their presents. It claims that Spin Master used a fraudulent marketing scheme in order to sell millions of toys that did not work.
Spin Master denied the allegations, instead arguing that the response to their product has been “overwhelmingly positive” and that the company has been taking measures to remedy those few customers who were affected by faulty toys.
The lawsuit seeks to obtain refunds for the buyers whose Hatchimals were unable to hatch or otherwise malfunctioned.
