Tiny Toys for Huge Imaginations
It's all the rage for grade-school girls, and if you have young kids you'll surely have heard of Shopkins by now. These collectible plastic figurines are the half the size of your thumb and can be put on the head of a pencil. They are shaped like household objects and have cute names to match, like "Sizzles" (a clothes iron), "Boohoo" (an onion), and "Brown Betty" (a high-top boot).
There are of course associated play-sets, magazines, and videos. One YouTube channel that our daughter is particularly fond of is by user CookieSwirlC who does product reviews and mini-episodes featuring the toys.
(In fact she likes it so much that now she wants to do her own YouTube video channel. Not that I want to stifle her creativity but such a venture would require equipment/software that we don't have right now.)
There are three "seasons" of Shopkins available and a fourth is in production. The motto is "Once you shop, you can't stop!"
