Parents might be confused when their children ask for Shopkins, but kids know exactly what these toys are. They are tiny, adorable grocery store food themed figurines.
Food and grocery themed characters? Yes, you read that correctly.
Shopkins are sort of like a cross between Moshi Monsters (aka Moshlings), Polly Pockets, and Veggie Tales. Like Polly Pockets, Shopkins are aimed at girls, and Moose Toys, the manufacturer of Shopkins, has made a line of toys that kids can't get enough of! The Shopkins set is a highly sought-after toy.
Take the Shopkins up the elevator, change their outfits in the dressing room, and ride down the style slide to enjoy some tasty treats. Girls who love to shop or play with Shopkins toys are going to love this playset. There are plenty of things to do, and it is well-designed with features that work intuitively.
This Shopkins Fashion Boutique Playset review will discuss the features, pros and cons, and other aspects of this toy to help you make an informed buying decision.
