In 2014 the girls where introduced to Shopkins I thought it would be a passing fad. Small odd looking plastic items that came in a shopping basket. No Shopkins is still very popular in our house. I am forever stepping on them, finding them in my shoes, they are hidden in pillow cases and the other day I even had one in my bowl of cereal. The verdict Little Opinions lovvvvvves Shopkins.
Season 1 Shopkins hit the shelfs over a year ago with Season 2 coming out earlier this year and now season 3 will be starting to appear in shops from June/July 2015.
My favourite season would be season 2 as there are more details on the Shopkins plus they also had baby Shopkins. I really really cannot wait until I start seeing season 3 in the shops. I've already brought the season 3 Ice cream truck I am still searching for the packs.
I also have the Shopkins small market, bakery, fruit stall, fridge, vending machine and many many baskets. I really enjoy collecting Shopkins and I like to save up and buy the 12 pack. I especially like the blind bags you get in the packs, its really exciting opening them up to see what you have received.
This is one toy that the girls have continually played with and hasn't been put in the corner. Surely the fad is coming to an end? I think not especially with season 3 just about to hit the shelves. I am sure at this rate there will be a season 4,5 and 6 !!!!!
