Is the Shopkins Scoops Ice Cream Truck Worth Buying?
When considering any Shopkins toy, you have to consider it from the perspective of a child who is already a fan of Shopkins, as the quality of the toy as a stand-alone product is often irrelevant to the children who will be interested in it. A Shopkins toy will always be welcomed by fans of the brand, regardless of its overall quality, as it adds to a collection and helps to further build the child’s Shopkins world. Taking that as given, let’s consider the Scoops Ice Cream Truck when compared to alternative Shopkins toys.
The ice cream truck itself is well made. It is designed with simplicity in mind, and few moving parts. The pop up roof is an excellent feature, allowing the truck to display its menu for all comers. When the roof is in this position, you can also see the detail that has gone into the construction of the truck, with a faucet and sink inside the truck adding to the imaginative realism. The inclusion of two exclusive Shopkins characters, Wally Water and Kylie Cone, is also particularly welcome. It’s easy to suggest that the set could include more characters, but the same could be said for almost any Shopkins playset.
While some younger children may enjoy the Shopkins Scoops Ice Cream Truck without being familiar with the Shopkins brand, there is little to distinguish it from other toy trucks of a similar mould. This is a toy for Shopkins fans, pure and simple. The truck encourages imaginative play, and it is nice to see children playing with toys that don’t light up endlessly, blaring loud songs or music at every touch. Those toys have their place, but a balance is required. The Shopkins Scoops Ice Cream Truck offers that. If your child isn’t a Shopkins fan, then this toy will probably be wasted on them, but for Shopkins fans, this is a fantastic little playset.
