Shopkins is a range of tiny, collectable toys, manufactured by Moose Toys. Based on grocery store items, each plastic figure has a cute face and unique name. The collectable toys (which are designated as common, rare, ultra rare, special edition, and limited editions) have also added a line of trading cards, as well as a YouTube channel

The toy line began in 2014 currently consisting of seasons 1 through 7.

Shopkins was designed and developed by Moose Toys in Melbourne. Co-chief Paul Solomon credits his mother Jacqui Tobias, director of girls’ products, for the idea of Shopkins. Moose Toys had success with their line of Trash Pack collectible figurines which were geared towards boys, but overall lacked a market for girls. Shopkins was produced initially as a similar product for girls—however, it appeals to both genders.

The first series of Shopkins was revealed in 2013.

Shopkins figurines are roughly 1 inch in height and 1 inch in width, roughly the size of a United States Quarter. Each figurine has a face and its own name. They are distributed in bright colored packaging with bubble letters. Shopkins are based on grocery items such as a sweet apple named Apple Blossom, a candy bar named Cheeky Chocolate, and a chocolate chip cookie named Kooky Cookie.

There are hundreds of Shopkins in the Shopkins World. Shopkins are organized into "teams" such as Sweets or Bakery. Shopkins are collected and traded based on their rarity. Moose toys classifies the Shopkins degrees of rarity as Common, Exclusive, Limited Edition, Rare, Special Edition, and Ultra Rare.

Moose Toys launched a series of children's books about Shopkins including Scholastic's Shopkins: Welcome to Shopville.

Moose Toys released their first trading card set in 2015.

Moose Toys has also announced a new movie (based on Shopkins toys) called Shopkins Chef Club. the movie was released on DVD October 25, 2016 by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. The movie was well received and became a Shopkins fan favorite with great reviews.

In August 2014, Moose Toys built brand awareness with their Shopkins short cartoon videos on their YouTube channel Shopkins world, but it was the YouTube videos of consumers unwrapping and playing with the toy that helped catapult its success.
