Moose Toys announces release of new Shopkins ‘World Vacation’ feature.
Following the outstanding success of the first Shopkins movie, Shopkins: Chef Club, the next Shopkins movie: World Vacation has been scheduled for release October 2017.
In an announcement sure to delight fans, the new feature will finally see the Shoppies and Shopkins leave Shopville for a world vacation. After winning a trip to go anywhere in the world, Kooky Cookie decides to take all her friends on a holiday to London.
Here they run into a pair of crooked thieves, the Biscuit Bandits. The Biscuit Bandits take them on a high stakes adventure through the streets of London, Paris and Tokyo.
The success of this release will add to the already incredible Shopkins sales figures. Retail sales value have hit over $1billion and the property is the biggest girls’ brand in the global toy sector. The recently released Shopkins season 7 is set to boost sales even further.
