Shopkins are ALL the rage with the youngsters. What child could resist a collection of tiny colorful characters based on the foods they love?
Shopkins were created by Australian toy company, Moose Toys, in 2014. They wanted an addition to their line of Trash Pack toys which had little market for girls. Shopkins was this addition for girls, but it seemed to work out for everyone! Boys and girls alike love the little guys.
The surge of interest brought the Shopkins characters to the screen. Their movie, “Shopkins Chef Club” was released on DVD in 2016. You can also see a series of cartoons on youtube! If that wasn’t enough, they have trading cards as well as a series of children’s books. The Shopkins world continues to grow.
Like any collectible or tradable item, Moose makes it interesting with special editions. They include Common, rare, ultra rare, special edition, limited edition, or exclusive. Some of which go for a pretty price tag online. So which shopkins do you have?
