    My daughter just uses them like tiny little characters. She makes them all talk to each other and walk around the table etc. she plays with them for ages

    They are all individual little characters with names and faces, which is the big difference between them and other toy food.
    My DD is Shopkins obsessed. We sometimes use her "Little People" and Barbie dolls to play with them, she will push them around in a tiny toy trolley. She has a Shopkins Lego conveyor belt/register that she uses, too.
    Or she loves taking them in the bath and just treats them like characters, uses her imagination and plays out a scene of some sort.

    Both my DD's love them. We went through a patch for about 2 years where they stopped liking them but all of a sudden the last few weeks they are obsessed and want more of them. One of my DD's is collecting the cards and has the folder to store them all in.

    They usually do as previous poster has said and make them talk to each other and walk around table. They also have a few Shopkins dolls. Very much into them in this house.

    I think the exciting, differing thing about them is they come wrapped so you can't see what you are getting and it's an element of suprise which makes it interesting.

    My four year old DS loves the bloody things - he just plays with them, no accessories or anything just makes the characters talk to each other etc...and yes they freakin' hurt when you step on them!

    My DD just likes collecting them, laying them all out/sorting them, drawing pictures of them, ticking off the "shopping list". I guess they are popular for a variety of reasons! I think they're cute

    I agree, there's just something addictive about them, even I get excited about opening the blind bags! We ordered a random bunch of 30 shopkins from eBay and I must admit, it was a bit of a thrill when they arrived, lol.
    DD also likes to line them up or group them in categories like they do on the YouTube videos. She loves those bloody videos, too. The woman who just films playing with them, ugh!

    My DS has the boy version, trash packs. Uses them as little people they have names and cars etc. I seriously have no idea why he loves them so much.
