Everyone has a little girl (or boy) in their life who is absolutely head over heels with Shopkins.
Try as I may, I don’t get it – I never thought this day would come, but I think I’m too old to understand! 😀
What I do know is that my little girl (6.5) LOVE LOVE LOVES Shopkins! She could play with them day in and day out. We have so many given to her as gifts, and last year our neighbor moved and gave her a humongous box full of Shopkins that her daughter had outgrown.
My daughter is in Shopkin heaven right now. And she’s asking for more for Christmas! lol (I’m currently trying to convince her that Shopkins are out and books are in, but so far I’m striking out with that one. 🙂
What are Shopkins & what do you do with them?
Shopkins are small grocery-store themed figurines (about 1 inch in diameter) with unique names and faces. They are released in Seasons, and I believe they currently have Seasons 1 through Season 6 available for sale.
In addition to the main characters, you can get different play sets to play with your Shopkins. They can be toted around in a carrying care or posed on a kitchen set or played with in any number of ways.
They are extremely popular, despite being the size of a thimble! lol They are collectible and can be traded. What’s cool is that they are released in limited editions and have varying levels of rarity (I’m still not clear on this but I hear it’s important. LOL)
What do you do with Shopkins?
You can play with Shopkins, trade them, collect them, give them as gifts, compare your collection to everyone else’s, discuss their names & merits. You name it! They kind of remind me of Pokemon, but they’re little characters instead of cards.
My daughter simply loves the miniature dollhouse aspect of these play sets. I haven’t told her they’re collectibles (and don’t plan on doing so! ha)
What are the different kinds of Shopkins toys?
Shopkins has so many different types of toys. The base toy is a grocery store themed character, but they’ve branched out to include different kinds of scenes (like cupcake shop vs kitchen) and other things like bandages, purses, leggings, etc. You name it, they’ve got it!
They make perfect birthday or Christmas gifts for kids ages 5 to 10 really. I have yet to meet a little girl between those ages that doesn’t like Shopkins. They are uber popular now and have been for a long time!
