Parents, brace yourselves. Shopkins, the show, is coming to the Long Center


Yes, you read that right. Your child’s favorite toy — the one that you cringe over because of all the little pieces and the fact that your children are probably trading one right now with their friends and not getting a good deal — is coming to the Long Center.

Shopkins has been turned into a live-action show with music and dancing. It arrives Oct. 21 to the Long Center. It’s a 90 minute show with a 15 minute intermission.

What’s the plot? “‘Shopkins Live!’will feature The Shoppies and Shopkins characters taking the stage with an all new storyline, original pop music and video highlights as ‘Jessicake’, ‘Bubbleisha’, ‘Peppa-Mint’ and friends prepare for Shopville’s annual “Funtastic Food and Fashion Fair”.
