I have two daughters, one 8 and one almost 4, and they are obsessed with Shopkins.  And I mean obsessed! Shopkins are super cute, tiny characters that live in a big shopping world!  These cute little characters come in little grocery shapes; a strawberry, a pack of gum and other grocery items.  They are fun to collect and they have little stores that you can even get to build your own Shopkins World!

Now Shopkins has created a new line, the Shopkins Kinstructions, a Shopkins construction line that encourages kids to get creative and practice building and problem solving.

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.”

The Shopkins Kinstructions allow your kids to get creative by designing and building with them.  While they aren’t compatible with other toy brick brands, they are very similar in concept.  In the Shopkins Kinstructions line you’ll find: Shopville Town Center, Scene Packs, Shopping Packs and Mini Packs. They each come with different characters to add to and grow your world!

Shopkins Color N’ Fashion

If you have an art lover out there you should check out their new activity lines.  This is Shopkins Color N’ Fashion Activity Messenger Bag. It comes with 6 markers so your child can color and decorate it and then they can show off their fashion everywhere they go!

This was a fun activity for my daughter.  She loves art and she loves purses so this was right up our alley!  Shopkins also has cute little plush toys that they can decorate and design too!  There are so many fun new items with the Shopkins brand that I know your girls would love to get creative with with Shopkins activity and construction toys!

Buy It:

You can purchase the Shopkins Kinstruction and activity toys at Toys R Us and other major retailers. They retail from $5.99 up to $34.99 and the suggested age is 5+.  I have let my 4 year old play with her older sister with them and she’s been fine, but they do contain small pieces so I would make sure your child is old enough to keep the toys out of her mouth.  Shopkins have really been a hit with my girls and I think they would make the perfect last minute gift if your still shopping.  They have something to fit in every price range!
