It started pretty much when they first came out. They reminded me of in the 2005 - 2007 era I was WAY obsessed with little bobblehead pets called "Littlest Pet Shops," I thought this was sort of like them as they are small toys you can collect!
They reminded me of LPS but sort of like a newer thing to collect. I always liked them, but held off on buying any until 2016! I just knew I would get hooked on buying them and I did. But hey, if John can collect Hot Wheels then I can collect Shopkins! He totally supports me and he sometimes buys me some. :) I also have watched a series of Shopkins on Youtube from time to time. ♥
Below I will add some pictures of some of my favorite Shopkins and maybe even my collection!
