Lila LOVES to help me in the kitchen. She’s learning knife skills, learning to read recipes and how to measure out the necessary ingredients, and even cleans up after herself! She also loves Shopkins, so this year I got lucky because the Season 6 Shopkins is called Chef Club. So if you’re shopping for a future chef like I am, Shopkins Chef Club makes the perfect gift. But it’s not the only reason why Shopkins makes a great gift – Shopkins also helps the girls think and play creatively.
Why We Love Shopkins Chef Club
Shopkins Chef Club categories include Family Food, Breakfast, Sweets and Bakery. The characters are ingredients that can be combined with other characters to make all new recipes.
The new playsets, like the Hot Spot Kitchen and Sparkle Clean Washer, all connect together to build a Chef Club world.
There are also some cool features with the Chef Club characters. This season, the characters come with all new finishes, including color-changing! And each character also comes with a QR code on the bottom that can be scanned with the Shopkins Chef Club app, bringing the characters to life. The girls are both enjoying the app, and it’s also an easy way for them to keep track of which characters they have. They said that the app makes them want to collect even more Shopkins!
The girls are not the only one who loves Shopkins. I think Shopkins are perfect for creative and imaginative play. The girls like to give each other ingredients and then they make up their own recipes. They challenge each other to come up with the most creative recipe, and it’s fun to watch them think about what they could make with a bunch of ingredients that don’t necessarily go together. Lila told me it’s “Just like on Top Chef.”
Another way Lila plays with the Shopkins in a creative way is that she uses them to spell out her spelling words. She struggles with spelling, so even though it takes a lot longer than if she just wrote them out, she enjoys using her Shopkins to spell out the words and this has actually improved her spelling!
Shopkins is only one of Moose Toys‘ brands that promote creative and imaginary play. Check out all of their brands and let me know which are your children’s favorites!
