Shopkins has been a big hit with my children since we reviewed the Shopkins supermarket last year and they were excited when the Shopkins So Cool Fridge playset arrived.
Consisting of an American style refridgerator with various compartments, two shopkins and a tray of eggs, their eyes lit up when they saw it. This has been particularly popular with my youngest, Mister B who can sit playing with it for hours and adds other small characters he has to let his imagination run wild!
The fridge has a large opening door with three shelves inside, and two shelves on the back of the door. This holds the egg seesaw, a shelf that tips from side to side depending on how many eggs you have sitting on there. Six eggs with different expressions on their faces are included.
There is a drawer at the bottom of the fridge and on the left is an ice dispenser. This comes with a yellow ice bucket that if you push into the bottom of the dispenser it will fill up with any items you have stored in the small cupboard at the top of the dispenser.
Also included are two shopkins, a soda bottle and an ice cream sundae, both perfect for chilling in the fridge!
There are also two sheets of stickers to decorate your fridge with and the children had fun applying these on the doors and around the sides.
Shopkins do seem to have a much higher play value than I initially thought and my two really have played with this for long periods of time and got engrossed in a world of little characters. They’ve used other play figures they own to come and buy things from the shop and fridge, they’ve added other tiny figures and things into the fridge to boost the play potential. They love all the different little places to hide things in the various doors and drawers, not forgetting shooting things down the ice dispenser!
What more can I say? Shopkins has definitely been a hit with us and kept my children entertained for longer than I expected. It’s made of a sturdy plastic and is not at all flimsy, therefore withstanding falling over etc. The doors don’t just fall off like some toys we have. I think this is a toy that will be revisited many times for some imaginative, fun play that both children enjoy!
