Calico Critters

Calico Critters are a classic toy that kids love to play with. Calico Critters is a line of different animal figures, with homes, and lifelike accessories designed for children ages 3 and up. The popular series, first introduced in 1985, features beautiful, richly detailed animal figures that live like humans with a focus on “Nature, Family and Love.”

This Season, Calico Critters is expanding their Village Collection with new homes to collect and connect. The Sweet Raspberry Home is the newest addition to the village, with matching details to the Red Roof Cozy Cottage, and Red Roof Country Home Gift Set. The Baby Blind Bag Series make perfect stocking stuffers for Calico Critters fans.
