Imogen has been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Shopkins to the UK for quite some time so her year was made last week when an exciting delivery arrived from Flair, The Shopkins Small Mart Supermarket Playset and a Shopkins 12 pack!
Shopkins are small and very cute collectible characters, they take the form of pretty much anything that you’ll find in the supermarket from food items to make up and beauty items.
There are over hundred available to collect with new characters being released every 3 months. They are available in 2, 5 and 12 packs and with pack starting from £2.99 they are pocket money friendly. In each pack there will be a certain amount of “hidden characters” and this adds the great element of surprise which Imogen seems to love. Also included a collectors guide which will tell you the name of your character and also how rare they are. Imogen was trilled to find the Ultra Rare D’lish Donut, who has a glittery finish, hidden inside her 12 pack!
The Supermarket Playset is the perfect addition to your Shopkins with a checkout with working conveyor belt, fun chute slide, shopping bags and a shopping trolley. It can also be used for storage or display of your Shopkins with the handy and plentiful shelving.
Imogen has played with the Shopkins both with and without the playset non stop since they arrived and has discovered that they make pretty awesome accessories for her Barbie size dolls.
She’s very adamant on collecting the entire range and has been keeping her bedroom spotlessly clean in order to get the necessary funds. There are also other playsets in the series including a bakery stand, fruit and veg stall and a vending machine all of which are at the top of her Christmas list already.
We’ve struggled to find Shopkins in store anywhere yet but keep an eye out becuase I’m sure they’ll be everywhere very, very soon but in the meantime they are available from www.flairplc.co.uk
