What is Shopkins, who made ?
Shopkins was a range of small collectible toys, manufactured by Moose Toys. According to the grocery store items, each plastic figure has a recognizable face and unique name. They also have special finishes as translucent, shiny, or soft. Collectible toys (which are designated common, rare, ultra-rare, special edition, limited edition, and exclusive) had also expanded into clothing lines, trading cards, and other related merchandise.
Shopkins was designed and developed by Moose Toys in Melbourne in April 2013. Co-Director Paul Solomon credits his mother Jacqui Tobias, director of girls’ products, for the idea of Shopkins. Moose Toys had success with their Trash Pack line of collectible figurines that were aimed at children, but generally lacked a market for girls. Toy’s was initially produced as a similar product for girls; yet attracts both genders
Shopkins figures are about 1 inch tall and 1/2 inch wide, about the size of a United States. Trimester. Each figure has a face, a name, and its own personality. They are distributed in vivid colors bubble lettering packaging. Shopkins are based on edible items like a sweet apple called Apple Blossom, a chocolate bar called Cheeky Chocolate, a lipstick called Lippy Lips, and a chocolate chip cookie called Kooky Cookie.
There are hundreds of Shopkins in Toy’s World. Shopkins are organized
in categories like fruits and vegetables or bakery. They can be found in 2, 5, 8, 12, and 20 packs from Toys.
Shopkins are collected and valued based on their rarity. Moose classifies Shopkins rarity grades as “Common” (White (Purple in Seasons 12 onwards)), “Exclusive” (Turquoise), “Limited Edition” (Gold), “Rare” (green), “Special Edition” (blue), and “Ultra Rare” (pink). The “Shopkins Special Edition can only be found in 8 or 12 packages of Toy’s
The materials used for Shopkins were rubber plastics, brought from China, and from season 10 onwards,
the plastic is from Vietnam.

In recent years, the love of kids brings themed toy toys to the party.
