I'm a minor Shoppies collector. I don't collect Shopkins anymore. I had a very brief run. Although I'll be all over it if they show up in Happy Meal blind bags again. Those were addicting. But anyway, what I mean is that I don't need every Shoppie doll or even one of each character. I buy who I like.
When I found Riana Radio and Kristina Apples from the Happy Places Li'l Shoppie line, I got back into Li'ls just long enough to realize that Lippy Lulu was nowhere to be found. She was the only other one I wanted from the first batch, so I figured I should track her down. I finally found her in Booksamillion and I really like her.
So imagine my surprise in Walmart tonight when I looked up at the top shelf and saw this set!
At first, I actually thought it was the donut girl, because she has the pink hair that kinda frames her face, too. They had two sets and both were shoved at the very back of the top shelf, so when I was able to haul them forward, I saw that this wasn't the donut girl but Lulu!
I had no idea there was a Lulu doll coming out. I thought we'd be finally getting Kirstea and Pirouetta and were otherwise caught up. I was so wrong. (See my previous post on the absolute deluge of new Shoppies items both popping up now and upcoming.)
Seriously, that's a lot for $19.88!
If you collect these dolls, which ones do you like best? Which ones of the newbies are you most excited to get?
