Its animated webisode series has amassed over 180 million views on YouTube alone and the collectible toy line is now the #1 brand for girls world-wide.
The move in to the home entertainment space was the next logical step for Moose Toys, the Australian toy company behind the franchise and with brand popularity stretching the globe, including taking out the Best Girls Character License at this year’s International LIMA Awards, this is bound to be just the beginning for these tiny characters
The first ever Shopkins film marks the transition of several Shopkin’s fan favourites, Kooky Cookie, Apple Blossom, Lippy Lips and Cheeky Chocolate, from YouTube webisodes to DVD & Digital Download.

The all-new Shopkins film will be available in Autumn 2016 on the high street as well as via online and digital retail outlets – in plenty of time for Christmas. To coincide with this release, both the Shopkins Season 6 and Shoppies Dolls ranges will feature characters showcased within the film.
