moosetoys480Moose Toys today announced that UPHE Content Group, an entity of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, will distribute the first ever full-length Shopkins film.

Each season of Shopkins offers 140 different characters to collect, complemented by a range of Shoppies Dolls. Its animated webisode series has amassed nearly 100 million views on YouTube alone and the Shopkins 12-Pack was the #1 selling toy in the US in 2015 according to The NPD Group.

“We are thrilled to bring the world of Shopville to life in a fun, new way,” said Belinda Gruebner, marketing director at Moose Toys. ”The success of our YouTube webisode series is testament to the fact that our fans are content hungry and we see this full-length film as the ideal platform to invite our fans on this next adventure of the Shopkins journey. It’s fantastic to be working with a partner such as the UPHE Content Group as their global presence, distribution strength and creative approach make them the perfect long-term partner for Moose.”

The first ever Shopkins film marks the screen debut of the Shoppies characters, alongside Shopkin’s fan favorites Kooky Cookie, Apple Blossom, Lippy Lips and Cheeky Chocolate.

The DVD will be packaged to include an exclusive Kooky Cookie character. To coincide with the DVD release on 24th October, both the Shopkins Season 6 and Shoppies Dolls ranges will feature characters showcased within the film. There will also be a mini red carpet premiere in London.
