A Blind Box Surprise!

I was checking out the toy aisle the other day, seeing if there was anything new, when I saw these…

Disney Shopkins Blind Boxes!

These blind boxes are part of the “Shopkins Happy Places Disney Collection” (at least I think that’s what they’re called).  I found them at Wal-Mart for about $3.97 per box.

I have been waiting FOREVER for our local Wal-Mart to stock these, mostly because I love, love blind boxes but also because these are Disney themed!  It’s a match made in heaven!  According to the description, there is one tile plus three surprises hidden inside.

On the back of the box is a picture of a few of the items.  It looks like they are inspired by Cinderella, Belle, and Minnie Mouse.

Wait! Where's The Tinker Bell Decor?
Cinderella’s decor looks pretty neat—is that a knitting needle I see?  Oooo, and a pair of scissors?

Oh, I hope we get Cinderella’s things!  Let’s get it open and see what’s inside!

It looks Like We Have Belle's Decor.

Darn it!  Oh well, that’s the risk with blind boxes—getting what you want is never a guarantee.

Okay, so here are all the pieces out of the box:

Inside Is A Collectors Guide, Menu, Tile, And Blind Bag

It has a purplish background, is decorated with red roses in the corners, and has “Sweet Treats” written in the center.

It's The Pefect Size For A Tiny Fairy!

I believe this little tile is to expand your Shopkin’s house:

Unfortunately, I don’t collect Shopkins, so I don’t really have a use for it.

However It Does Make A Nice Podium

Alright, enough delay!  Let’s open up the bags and see what’s inside!  The bag containing the mystery items is divided into three sections with each section holding an item:

Inside Bag Number One Is Two Pieces Of Candy

Well, they may not be the pieces I was hoping for, but the candies are kind of cute.

Each candy is shaped like a blooming rose.  They are molded together and painted pink all around.

They're The Perfect Size For A Mini Doll!
I think I know which pieces are in this blind box:

So, let’s go ahead and open up the next bag and see if I’m right:

In Bag Number Two Is A Candy Stand With More Candy.
The candy stand is yellow and has three more rose candies molded onto it:

We’re down to the last bag (and I’m pretty sure I can guess what it is?).

Inside Bag Number Three Is The Candy Jar
The candy jar is “glass” colored (translucent blue), has a purple ‘B’ stamped on the front, and is shaped like a teapot:

The lid is removable…

So It's Able To Hold The Loose Pieces Of Candy

Even though this wasn’t the set I had originally hoped to get, for $4.00 these tiny trinkets are pretty cute!

The pieces are nicely detailed and the perfect size for mini and Barbie dolls.  They will make excellent accent pieces in my Ever After High castle (which I’m still in the process of repainting).

Tinkerbell Doll With Quote: Hey, I Thought These Treats Were Mine!

Well, Tinkerbell and I hope you enjoyed opening this blind box with us…

And Have A Merry Christmas!
