Calico Critters Review and #Giveaway

        I am always looking for new toys for my girls to play with and now that they are getting into role playing, I am trying to find ones that inspire imagination in their play.  Recently I was asked to review some adorable little characters called Calico Critters.  I was sent over the Calico Critters Discovery Forest and the Oinks Pig Triplets set.  Once it arrived the kids had a hard time waiting to open it as we had planned to wait until a night where both the girls and boys would be together (and we might get a night out).

        Calico Critters are tiny little animal families that have a multitude of houses, play-sets, and animal family sets that can make any parent lose their minds with all the little pieces laying around.  However, despite all the small pieces this is a darling play-set in which kids can use their imagination to interact with each other or play by themselves.  The Discovery Forest is a tree house and playground all in one; it has a swing, teeter-totter, slide, and merry-go-round for the animals to play on.  The three little pig set can play in and around the tree house plus their outfits are interchangeable.

        The girls love that there are little flowers that they can decorate the tree with even though as of right now I am not sure where most of them are.  The kids love using their imagination having the pigs swing and slide with one another.  I am sure that adding to their Calico Critter collection will be top on their Christmas list and Randi has mentioned that since the set is at my house she now needs to get one for her home too!

        It's hard to find a product that both my kids like and want to play with.  Animals seems to be the one thing they both agree on seeing as we have had several evenings with Batman and Spiderman dancing at the castle with Cinderella and Ariel (haha).  Not only did the four kiddos (both boys and both girls) keep occupied and entertained with this play set but after they were done as group each child would individually head back to the set on their own time.

Available to Purchase/Cost:  $39.95 Calico Critters Discovery Forest

Recommendation: My kids really like playing with the Calico Critters and the Discovery Forest. I think this product is made to last and get lots of use, I recommend any of the Calico Critters products to anyone who's children love to play make believe.
