If you have little ones I’d be very surprised if you haven’t heard of Shopkins. Shopkins are grocery store themed collectables that kids go mad for (mine definitely do). Now they have their very own movie coming out on Thursday 27th October called Shopkins: Chef Club from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment which we got to see early to review.
Once the kids got their plushies ready to watch with them they settled down for the fun. The movie starts with the recognisable Shopkins theme which got the kids very excited, it also introduced all the ‘actors’ like any other movie which I thought was a cute touch. The characters in the film are a mixture of Shoppies and Shopkins with old favourites and new characters.
- Cheeky Chocolate
- Lippy Lips
- Kooky Cookie
- Apple Blossom
- Buncho Bananas
- Nina Noodles
- Bessie Bowl
- Miss Sprinkles
Peppa-Mint tells us all in a song ‘Tell Me What’s Cooking’ what Chef Club is all about. The Shoppies/Shopkins split into groups and are told they need to cook 4 dishes well in order to get into the Chef Club, all are up for it. They are sent off to get their ingredients at the supermarket where chaos ensues, a bit like shopping on a Saturday afternoon with the kids 😉
I don’t want to spoil too much of the movie as you’ll obviously want to see it for yourselves but there’s lots of mess (think your kitchen when you have the bright idea of letting the kids help with the cooking) and funny moments as they compete against each other to be the best team. With Donatina counting strands of spaghetti to Nina Noodles sounding like my grumpy teenager and Bubbleisha going all out to ensure she wins with a few ideas up her sleeve. The theme running through the movie seems to be Bubbleisha feeling under appreciated, craving praise and wanting to be the best. You’ll have to watch to find out if she manages to win everyone round though!
Little Man says: “It was awesome, my favourite character is Kooky Cookie”
Little Lady says: “It’s really good, my favourite character is Bubbleisha”
My kids loved the Shopkins: Chef Club movie and I thought at just under 45 minutes it’s long enough to keep their attention without them getting fed up or fidgety.
