Life’s never ordinary in Shopville, but things are about to get a little extraordinary with the arrival of the Chef Club, hosted by new-Shoppie-on-the-block Peppa-Mint and her Shopkin pals. To be accepted, the Shoppies will have to sing, dance, boil and blanch their way to victory. But it’s not just the pots that simmer! When Bubbleisha feels she’s not getting the attention she’s owed, things turn from sweet to sour faster than a milkshake in the sun! Can the Shoppies band together to avert this recipe from disaster?

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Shopkins: Chef Club is the first Shopkins DVD release from Moose Toys (Australia), the toy company that created and markets a vast array of brand merchandise, including dolls and play sets, books, web videos, trading cards, and related products directed at very young consumers. This 44-minute video, which follows several "seasons" of two-minute YouTube webisodes, promotes these very small (one-inch-by-one-inch) toys, most of which give life to everyday grocery items ("Apple Blossom," "Kooky Cookie," "Nina Noodles"). In this story, a group of the Shopkins auditions for membership in the mall's Chef Club. Most of the characters and the recipes they follow relate to sweets ("a chili, chocolate, leaning tower of licorice" and "gum gum fruit stuffed with gum gum fruit"). A smattering of messages (for examples, discouraging cheating and cautioning against a frantic need for compliments and approval) is introduced, and there's nothing really objectionable about the story itself (no villains or scares). Little kids will be engaged and will like the comic but slight characters. Parents who are considering the Shopkins brand for their kids should be aware of the company website's description of their product: "Let's go shopping! Shopkins are the super cute, small characters that live in a BIG shopping world! There's hundreds of Shopkins to collect from all sorts of fun themes! So grab your shopping cart and start -- because once you shop, you can't stop! Collect them all and build your Shopkins world."
