JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Tickets will go on sale this Friday for the national tour of “Shopkins Live!,” the first live theatrical production based on the popular Shopkins toy brand.

The show, which is coming to the Florida Theatre at 2 p.m. Oct. 8, is based on the Youtube sensation and toy phenomenon created in Australia by Moose Toys.

“Shopkins Live!” will feature The Shoppies and Shopkins characters taking the stage with an all new storyline, original pop music and video highlights as “Jessicake,” “Bubbleisha,” “Peppa-Mint” and friends prepare for Shopville’s annual “Funtastic Food and Fashion Fair.”

“Shopkins is literally on every child’s wish list,” said Gilles Paquin, president and CEO of Koba Entertainment, who also serves as executive producer of “Shopkins Live!”

Since its launch in 2014, the Shopkins brand continues to be a hot ticket item for children worldwide.  Shoppies dolls consistently rank as the No. 1 kids toy in the U.S.; the first-ever Shopkins movie, “Shopkins Chef Club,” was released last year by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment; and numerous dedicated apps continue to expand the brand’s ever-growing world, officials said.
