Littlest Pet Shop (also known as LPS) is a toy franchise and cartoon series owned by Hasbro. The original toy series was produced by Kenner in the early 1990s. An animated television series was made in 1994 by Sunbow Productions and Jean Chalopin Creativite et Developpement, based on the franchise.

A new version of Littlest Pet Shop was introduced in 2005 by Hasbro, with revisions such as larger eyes. There are currently over 3,000 different pets that have been created under this revision. Hasbro, alongside various digital media developers, have produced video games for consoles such as the Nintendo DS, Wii and PlayStation 3. An animated television series of the same name is currently being produced by Hasbro Studios, and premiered in 2012. Hasbro has also created virtual pets to 'adopt' and play with online. These websites were Littlest Pet Shop VIP, and Littlest Pet Shop online, better recognized as the name LPS. Neither lasted longer than 3 years, but were very popular and enjoyed by many kids. In 2010, Hasbro released their version of Blythe as a part of this toy line. Hasbro has created many different versions of these cute creatures. The first series was created in 2005, the second release in 2008, the third release in 2012, and the most recent release in 2014.[1]

Hasbro toys (2005–present)

In 1985, General Mills spun off its Kenner and Parker toy divisions to form Kenner Parker Toys, Inc. Kenner Parker was acquired by Tonka in 1987. Under Tonka management, Kenner Products was reconstituted as a division. Tonka (including Kenner) was purchased by the toy company Hasbro in mid-1991. Hasbro closed the Cincinnati offices of Kenner in 2000, and Kenner's product lines were merged into Hasbro's.

Stuffed versions of Littlest Pet Shop toys

Generation One

The Littlest Pet Shop toy line had new molds, looked cartoon-like and had colours like a real animal and can be blended in. They had bobble-heads (except for the fish) and they came with a pink magnet. Some pets can be fuzzy. Later ones have a blue magnet. The series of sets are Single Packages, Pet Pairs, Portable Pets, 20-pack, and playsets. The Littlest Pet Shop "numbers" for the Generation 1 was #1–#456.

Generation Two

These LPS has symbols in their eyes that meant something, such as: snowflake (chilliest), cookie with a bite (hungriest), raindrop (sportiest), and an explosion symbol on some Comic Con pets

Generation Three

Later, they added the Shimmer and Shine series, Sticker Eyes pet series, added Blythe, and the Fairies series. The numbers for Generation 3 is #974–2675.

Generation Four

The Littlest Pet Shop toy line had the new molds and the new eye style. Hasbro remade the Totally Talented from the G1 set, Blythe also changed. The numbers for Generation 4 are #2684–#3107.

Bobble–in–style pets

Hasbro had lots of calls complaining about the Generation 4 pets. Hasbro made the Bobble–in–style, it included pets from the 2012 TV show and made it look like the pets from 2005–2012.

Littlest Pet Shop Fakies

In Hong Kong, China, there are fake Littlest Pet Shop figures made of soft plastic. They look very similar to original Hasbro Littlest Pet Shop's. They are mostly found on eBay for a cheap price. The largest Littlest Pet Shop eBay sellers who sell fakies are from China, Hong Kong, Singapore. They sell large quantities of fakies and are greatly destroying LPS authenticity and value. Even some of the highest priced LPS's: Golden Collie, Dachshund "Savannah", Great Dane have been faked.
