Entertain the Kids were sent a couple of the Shopkins Sticker Collection magazines for review purposes. I had a couple of 7-8yr girls in mind that could review them on my behalf so I grabbed them quickly on my way to the school gates to pick William up from school. Oh my, I felt like a modern day Pied Piper as I was ambushed by squealing girls when they spotted the Shopkins magazines.
My son, William, is into a few collectables and I had only heard of Shopkins in passing and hadn’t realised what a “craze” they were. I held onto the magazines until all the children had departed so I could give them to Eve and Ellie (both 7yr), they were absolutely delighted, they scurried away with their magazines with William, huddled near a tree (like a den) shouting 10-to-the-dozen : I do believe they were happy.
Feedback from Eve’s mummy, although the girls were far from quiet, they were engrossed with the magazines and swaps, she even managed to enjoy a quiet moment with a cup of tea haha.
