Calico Critters: Make the Most of What's Left of Summer

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


What are Calico Critters? Just the best toy in the whole wide world if you are a 5-year-old grandbaby of mine!! This is the toy that is going to end our summer off with a bang over here. My granddaughter will be coming to spend one last woohoo! with her gran before she starts KINDERGARTEN and to celebrate I've gotten her one of her most favorite things to play with in the world: Calico Critters!




This particular set is the Calico Critters Red Roof Cozy Cottage...


and this is Hopscotch Rabbit Girl (cute, isn't she?). She comes in a cottage that is open completely on the back side, like a traditional dollhouse, so you can move her and her furniture and other items around. Something really cool about this set is you can remove the top floor and put it on the bottom to make the play space area even larger.


The doors and shutters on the front side open, and isn't that red roof on the cottage just adorable?! 


This set comes with Hopscotch Rabbit Girl, the main unit, second story floor, stairs, fence (large), fence (small), 2 windows, 4 shutters, a kitchen, frying pan, omelet, fork, plate, dining table with 2 chairs, bench, bed, matress and quilt (calico, of course).  


The cottage is made of durable, hard plastic that is also easy to clean! It's lightweight and easy to tote around too. 


I'm quite sure the pretend time we put into this cottage is going to be some of our best time yet (and we always have a great time). I know this was just the kind of toy I loved when I was a girl, and my granddaughter loves to play pretend as well. I'm sure she'll want her household items to be placed just right, and that our scenarios will involve quite a few giggles (what's a visit to gram's without giggles?). I think it's the perfect way to end summer, don't you think?

Red Roof Cozy Cottage is the perfect choice for those starting out with Calico Critters! This all-in-one set includes a two-story house, figure (Hopscotch Rabbit Girl), and furniture.

Red Roof Cozy Cottage features a removable second story floor that can be placed alongside the first floor to create a wider space that is easier to play with. The stairs come as a standalone unit and can be placed in any desired location. Windows come equipped with shutters that can be opened and closed during play.

Connect to Red Roof Country Home to create a large, three-story house (sold separately). Have an even more enjoyable experience playing with additional figures and furniture (sold separately). Place the kitchen and chairs into the Family Seven Seater to turn it into a camper van (sold separately). Play with Red Roof Cozy Cottage alongside various other homes and shops (sold separately).

She's sure grown up fast as off to school she goes. Sure looks like the perfect toy for her to play with as she visits Granny.
