I remember having these when I was a kid, I lived them! I'm trying to convince my ds that he wants them for Christmas so I can play with them too

Re: Opinions- Calico Critters (Christmas gift idea)

I had the ones back in the 80's but not sure where they are. I started them last year with my youngest and she loves them.

Thanks everyone! Sounds like they are generally a hit. Love the link to the diy dollhouse. I'm all over that kind of thing!

Re: Opinions- Calico Critters (Christmas gift idea)

For Easter be bought DS the Eco plan toys house and got him the calico critter hedgehogs family for the people. He loves them! So for Xmas this yr my mom bought him the car and camper and motorcycle sets bc he loves driving things around. I had a bunch when I was little too & I think my mom has them all packed up. I loved them.

I love that doll house idea!!

I got it for dd3 when she was 3. That was 2 years ago. She loved it then and loves it now. My 8 year old also loves to play with it.

I had sylvanians but I collected them more than played with them. I continued to collect them as a teen/adult and eventually decided to give them to my boys (I don't really like clutter/stuff just sitting around not doing anything). So my kids have a giant Sylvanian house and tons of the little families though they don't have a whole lot of the furniture or extras, just the people and house. My youngest enjoys them and obviously they have held up pretty well considering they are 20 years old. I will say that Tharen plays more with his playmobil than the Sylvanians but he enjoys the Sylvanians too.
