Calico Critters Sets | $15-$23 | Amazon
At the last Toy Faire (2019), I made a beeline for the Calico Critters display because they are usually super elaborate and beautifully displayed. Millenials of a certain age definitely remember these adorable flocked felines and friends. I actually know a ton of people that still collect them. Today several of the sets are on sale.
This wonderful sale introduces a new generation to literally the cutest toys I’ve ever seen. The idea is to build your own village with the mix and match sets. There are some pretty elaborate cozy cottage setups too. Really embrace the cottage core lifestyle. Every detail of these characters is meticulously designed, which you have to appreciate. The attention to every aspect of these characters’ world is truly mesmerizing. But their unique selling point outside of being unbelievably adorable is their flocked material making each feel like velvet. So grab a few sets and relive your childhood. I might need the Kangaroo family for my bookshelf.
