Calico Critters toys worth the price

Chances are if you know a child who enjoys figurines, you’ve heard them talk about Calico Critters. What are Calico Critters exactly? It’s an award-winning toy series of quality animal figures about 2.5 inches in size designed for pretend play.

Children can pair them with cute clothes, accessories and even little Calico Critter houses. These critters have been around since 1985 but have gained popularity in recent years. The price tag for larger Calico Critter sets can get a little high but much like with American Girl dolls, cheaper competitors just aren’t as cute, detail-oriented or well-made. You’ll also get the best fit when you pair these authentic Calico Critters figurine sets with their coordinating accessories.
