Ok, I am the first to admit that I am reliving my childhood through my own children. That is part of why I love my job so much. Reviewing new toys is a fun gig, especially when it means that I get to hang out with my kiddos and play with a toy that I would have LOVED as a kid. These Shopkins toys would have been right up my alley. No surprise, my daughter is pretty nuts for them too. I’m not sure if it is the whole miniature thing or if it is just how imaginative these toys are, but they are so much fun.
The newest line of Shopkins toys is no exception, they have taken the line one step further and created a whole world that you can build and enjoy!
Shopkins C3 Kinstructions
The Shopkins world has been recreated as buildable and customizable figures and playsets with Shopkins C3 Kinstructions, a new construction line that encourages basic building and structural-solving skills, creativity and innovation! Now kids can build all their favorite Shopkins environments – from the Supermarket to the Bakery to the Beauty Salon – and create their own unique Shopkins figures by mixing and matching pieces. In addition, the line includes popular Shopkins characters from Season 1, such as “Strawberry Kiss” and “D’LIsh Donut.” For Ages 6+

My kids love to set up a Shopkins city and this toy line is so fun because they just keep adding to it. My daughter likes to trade these with her friends, and I love that each new set just adds to her Shopkin world. When I was a kid, I used to LOVE to play store, and that is what this reminds me of, because obviously it’s all centered around shopping. It’s so fun to fill the little bags and “shop” at each different store. My daughter loves to get her shops all set up and then I will come along and pretend that I am her customer.
If you are looking for great gift ideas for the upcoming holiday season, I highly recommend Shopkins. Hours of fun, affordable and so stinkin’ cute!
Where to purchase? I love that you can find Shopkins just about everywhere now, including online! Amazon has a HUGE selection of Shopkins and you still have time for holiday delivery!
