It's been a while since I've posted about Shopkins. In fact, as I was preparing for this post I realized that I never did my Shopkins Season 2 review. Whoops. Guess I'd better get to that. :}
Anyway, in Target last week I found some fun new Shopkins playsets, called "Fashion Spree". There were three different sets to choose from: the Ballet Collection, the Best Dressed Collection, and (I believe) the Casual Collection. At least, I think that was the name of the third. Each of the sets contained eight exclusive Shopkins, one large character, and two extra accessories. They were $12.99 each.
It was tough to pick out just one set, (I deliberated between the Ballet Collection and the Best Dressed Collection for a long time) but I finally settled for the Ballet Collection...basically because I loved the piano! ;)
Here it is in the package. As the title suggests, the whole set is ballet themed. The large character in this set is the "Playful Piano". :)
The back of the package has pictures of the characters and gives their names. This is a good thing, since there is not a shopping list brochure included like there is in the other packs.
A closer look at the description.

The packaging is easy to open. Each of the Shopkins are nestled in the clear plastic with no twist ties holding them in place.
And here they are all free! The set includes a golden bench, Teeni 1 and Tiny 2 the ballet slippers, Lippo the lipstick, Music Box the...music box, ;) a small, round stool for the piano, the Playful Piano, Duffa the duffel bag, Tutucute the Tutu, Tiara the tiara, and Piano Man the mini piano music box.
The artwork on the front of Playful piano is actually a removable cardboard insert.
When you lift the lid and take away the cardboard, you find this little storage area...
...just perfect for storing a couple of the Shopkins. :)
This set is super cute and a great gift idea for kids or Shopkins fans. :) If you're not into pink, the other sets have different color schemes.
I'm going to make this a fairly short post since I have so many other longer, more detailed reviews to do in the coming weeks, so I won't be doing my rating system or getting the girls' thoughts. You can be sure this set gets their full stamp of approval, though...and mine too. ;) I'd snag the other sets as well if I hadn't already splurged a bit too much this month. :}
What do you think of these new sets?
