Shopkins Season 5 (Amazon.com) is just around the corner and we have had more reports from online and local retail stores that they have their order shipments in and most are expecting Season 5 products to begin arriving mid to late May. As far as we know once they arrive the stores ARE allowed to start selling them immediately! We have yet to hear or see anything from Big Box retail stores such as Target, Wal-Mart and Toys-R-Us. Usually Toys-R-Us gets an exclusive initial release but this doesn’t seem to the be the case for Season 5.
Products in the first wave include blind bags (2-packs) 5-Packs and 12-Packs. No word on when the first round of new playsets or the three new Shopkins Shoppies (Sara Sushi, Pam Cake and Rainbow Kate) will hit the shelves but due to Target showing them on their website temporarily we can expect them to be soon.
As soon as we have availability for Shopkins 5th season we will be sure to let you know when and where!
Note: As of now, it looks like there will be no price increase for Shopkins products. Good to hear!
UPDATE as of 4/22/2016: It appears the Shopkins Season 5 toys will be hitting stores in the US on May 1, 2016. We can’t wait to see all of the new Shopkins characters for this season!
