One tradition in our family that we love is giving everyone a stocking. The kids laugh when I bring them to our family gatherings ("You're still making us stockings?!"), but the one year I skipped the tradition, everyone noticed, and not one of them was happy about it. That was the one and only year I didn't fill a stocking for each of my grown kids. Now I have grandchildren, and I have continued to do the same for them, though I put different items inside (I've grown more health conscious over the years, and refuse to stuff my grandchildren's stockings with candy). One great idea for this year's stockings for the littles that does sit well with me, are these adorable Calico Critters Baby Shopping Series blind packs. Each one comes with a mini figure and a shopping accessory.
Now for the BIG GIFT from Santa!!
The inside is an imaginative wonderland with a spiral staircase and room to plan how you see fit. Of course, since it is a dollhouse of sorts, you can rearrange furniture and Calico Critters at will, and I'm sure you will; that's half the fun of it, isn't it??!
any number of cutsie and practical items that should go in a house, like this washer (that spins) and vacuum cleaner. I'm telling you what, this is just the kind of toy that I loved when I was little. Play items in a toy house with little characters to use for pretend play...that's a great gift to give. Although we didn't have Calico Critters around when I was little, we had something similar, and I surely loved it so. These characters though, are so cute, and this town manor is amazing, and the items that come with it, or that you can buy to add to it, are incredibly awesome. Yes that is a lot of positive adjectives, but the Elegant Town Manor and any available accessories, truly deserve them. This is a gift you can give and know it is going to be loved for a long time to come; perhaps even for generations to come. It is truly a wonderland gift item to give.
