Ok when I saw the announcement on Facebook recently I could not have been more excited. I am like a kid at heart so yeah the news that United Supermarket had me with a smile on my face.

I have been collecting these micropopz for a couple years now. I have a place on my desk that I had been collecting stress balls. They were my go to desk decoration. That was until I discovered these micropopz. Now they have taken their rightful place on top of my monitors at work. I love it.

One year it was Disney characters then the next it was Disney Princesses. This year they have moved on to Marvel Superheroes. I have not been shopping to earn one yet. Oh but I think that is happening this weekend. All you have to do is spend $25 and you will get one. So, of course, the more money you spend the more your collection will grow.

Oh, I know that I am not the target market for this awesomeness. I know they are for the kids. I remember the first time I earned one shopping I had no idea what they even were. I brought my earnings home and I fell in love. So I have had to start this new collection.

I own seventeen of the micropopz right now. That will change of course. The Marvel set has 24 different micropopz to collect. Now when you earn one they come in a sealed package so it will be a surprise as which one you will get.

There are also 48 trading cards to collect too. So get your shopping on at United Supermarkets, Market Street, and Amigos to collect yours. I mean whether they are for you or your kid you will be glad you did.
