The following is a sponsored conversation with Beados Canada.
My kids are obsessed with Shopkins … and crafts …
So when Beados Canada reached out and asked if they wanted to review the new Shopkins Quick-Dry Design Station where they could literally MAKE THEIR OWN SHOPKINS?
I didn’t know what to expect, so I was figuring we’d get one of those kits with the little plastic beads that need to be ironed together so they melt into one big piece — nope! The Beados Shopkins Quick Dry Design Station (about $39.99 in stores) is much cooler (pun intended).
You arrange the little beads in a tray to make your design, you spritz it with the World’s Tiniest Most Adorable Water Bottle, and then you sit the tray under a fan so the beads stick together. There are even special beads that allow you to add plastic Shopkins eyes.
Don’t ask me about the science behind it, because I don’t know, but it’s very neat.
(Also there are kid-friendly tweezers that make it easier for chubby little fingers to pick up the beads and get them in the right spot.)
There are templates so you can make an ACTUAL looks-like-a-Shopkin Shopkin, but my kids took the more, er, creative route and designed their own.
*** The contest is now closed. Thank you to everyone who entered! ***

Leave a comment below or tag me on Instagram/Twitter (@HFXHeather) telling me about your kid’s favourite Shopkin!
Mine are obsessed with Kooky Cookie and insist it’s pronounced “Cuke-y Cookie” which bothers me more than it should. (My personal favourite Shopkin is the little sausage because it hurts the least when I step on it.)
