Shopkins Small Supermarket – Review

Shopkins are a collectible series of mini grocery characters along with shop playsets and accessories such as shopping bags, baskets and trolleys.  I hadn’t heard of these before but it seems these are a huge craze and sure to be a hit at Christmas.

Shopkins We received a Shopkins Small Supermarket to review and the children were immediately excited and wanted to play.  Aimed at children aged 5+, mainly due to the small pieces I imagine, it’s actually been a huge success with both my children, Miss M who is 6 and Mister B who’s almost 4.

shopkins 2The set comprises of a double sided supermarket play scene with doors that swing open. There’s shelves and a small basket that you moves up like a lift to a helter skelter slide for the food to slide down into the trolley. There is a separate check out with moveable conveyor belt.  Also included are two shopkins, a tub of butter and a bottle of moisturiser along with two shopping bags.

shopkins 3This playset is very durable, the plastic is durable with some parts being slightly rubbery.  The biggest surprise for me though was how fascinating both my children found this.  They have really enjoyed playing with it and got into role play with the little characters.  They’ve even used some of their own figures to go into the shop to buy the items.  As there are a few moveable parts, it’s had enough to keep them occupied and it is something they have gone back to each day to play with again.

shopkins 4This is definitely going to be a hit this Christmas and with the grocery items being released in series in various sized packs, it means children can buy pieces with their pocket money.  We’ve loved Shopkins and had lots of play value out of it!

All reviews are my own and my family’s opinions and we received some Shopkins in order to write the review.
