Shopkins are the collectable craze of the year and the tiny characters now come with a wide variety of playsets and accessories, as well as in the collections of little baskets and shopping bags. We love the Large Shoppin' Cart, which is great for keeping their Shopkins collection safe and sound, as well as playing at shopping in. It retails at £13 and comes with 2 exclusive Shopkins characters and 2 shopping bags.
Lots of Shopkins shops are now available, but the girls' favourite is the Supermarket Playset. With opening and closing supermarket doors, a shopping trolley, shelves to stock, a fun delivery chute to slide the Shopkins down, and even a moving conveyor belt to check them out on, this cute set provides hours of fun and role play opportunities. It retails at £20 and comes with 2 exclusive characters. Other shop sets and Shopkins character sets are available.
