All Shopkins figures, like Apple Blossom, Strawberry Kiss, and Gino Gelati, are inspired by everyday household and grocery store items. Shopkins took the traditional idea of a collectible toy set, and twisted it for a new generation by giving them names and personalities.
With this early success, it’s no surprise that Shopkins began winning lots of awards. Crowned the Girl Toy of the Year by the Toy Industry Association in 2015, Shopkins also appeared on Time To Play Magazine’s Most Wanted List, and the Toy Insider’s “Hot 20” list in 2014. But even with all their achievements, the Shopkins’ rise is not going to stop anytime soon.
Now the most internationally loved toy set is making a name for itself in the musical theater world! Shopkins Live! Shop it Up! lets fans see some of their favorite Shoppies on stage including Jessicake, Bubbleisha, Peppa-Mint, Rainbow Kate, Cocolette, Polli Polish, and many more!
