Have you met Millie Shakes, Apple Pie Alice, and Sunny-screen? They are just some of the adorable characters in the form of tiny shopping items that kids are raving about these days.
Australian toy company Moose Toy created these cute collectible toys called Shopkins, fashioned after supermarket and retail store items such as fruits, vegetables, ice cream, pizza, popsicles, salt and pepper shakers, shoes, nail polishes, and many more.
Each character dons a cool name that makes them irresistibly cute: Nikki Mixing Desk, Carrie Oki, Capella Cupcake, Fran Pancake, and Vicki Vanilla to name a few.
As of the moment, Shopkins has a total of 244 characters from all seven seasons. If you want to know which character you don’t have yet, you can keep track of your collectibles online via ShopkinsWorld.com.
Shopkins accessory packs come with blue shopping bags and grocery carriages and carts that complete the look and feel of a real supermarket and retail store.
There are also special editions of Shopkins toy packs that come with playsets like ice cream trucks, grocery stores, vending machines, shoe stores, fashion boutiques, and bakeries that are perfect for an enjoyable pretend play!
No wonder kids (and ‘rents) have to run from store to store hunting for these squishy toys!
In the recently concluded Australian Toy Awards, Moose Toy won Collectible Range of the Year for Cutie Cars Shopkins. Way to go, Moose Toy!
