A lawsuit filed against Toronto’s Spin Master over its popular Hatchimals toy has been voluntarily withdrawn.
The plaintiff, Jodie Hejduk, filed the class action on Jan. 19, 2017 in California, claiming her child’s toy didn’t hatch.
Spin Master (TOY.TO) launched Hatchimals in October and saw high demand for the toy throughout the 2016-17 holiday season.
"With a popular toy like Hatchimals, it was unfortunate that we were not better able to anticipate the influx of customer questions that would arise over the holiday period,” Ben Gadbois, COO and global president at Spin Master, said in a release. “However, we are proud of the efforts the company and our employees made to respond to all of our customers."
The plaintiff’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, applauded Spin Master, confirming his client voluntarily withdrew the suit after the company responded to all outstanding questions or provided replacements or refunds to consumers.
