Calico Critters Cozy Cottage House

The Calico Critters Cozy Cottage Playhouse is the perfect way to start a Calico Critter collection!

It even has cookware and pretend food!

Reviews summary: There were no negative customer reviews for this toy. Almost all ratings were 5 stars. The most common positive comment concerned how good this toy was as a "starter set", and also as an addition to their Calico Critters village.

Buyer's Notes:

Recent trips to Toys r' Us and Walmart already found 1/2 empty Calico Crittters displays. There were plenty of the Critters figure sets and accessories, but there were few house choices.

ps. Look for listings with a "Buy-It-Now" price to make an immediate purchase, without waiting for an auction to end. (although the best prices are usually in the auction listings)

Calico Critters Townhome

The Calico Critters Townhome, (or Town House), is the newest addition to the Calico Critters Cloverleaf Village line of toys. The townhome has five rooms, four larger rooms make up the house, and an included room divider can be used to create a fifth room. One of the adorable features of this play house is the lights that turn on and off. A moveable staircase and extra floor area create larger rooms in this house to provide hours of pretend play fun.

Features:

  • Front door, French doors and windows open and close
  • Include stair railings, front porch and second floor balcony
  • Expandable using the Conservatory Veranda
  • two lights are interchangeable and can be moved around the house

Reviews summary: 4 of 5 Stars! Another winner. There were a couple "concerns" mentioned in several reviews but they are not really negatives relative to the construction or durability of this house.

  1. House measures approx. 12" x 12" x 16" closed and a couple reviewers thought this was small for a playhouse, (of course it is larger when opened for play), but other moms commented they appreciated the smaller closed size as it did not take so much space to store, but was still large enough to be fun to play with.
  2. Nothing comes with the house. Some Calico Critters repeat buyers were used to some of the other sets which usually include furniture and accessories. They viewed this as a drawback.

Recommendation: Buy! - BUT, not as a first set, unless you are willing to purchase the necessary Calico Critters figures and accessories needed to play with the townhome.

pss. some ebay listings may be one-time deals, and might not be there the next time you look, so if you see a deal you like - make a decision.
