Calico Critters

by Ann Wiley

Calico Critters were first introduced in Japan in 1985 and quickly became a timeless, classic toy that delighted children worldwide. These adorable creatures always seem to bring back childhood memories as many parents had sets of their own.  

Living together in Calico Village, these unique animal figures each have their own backstories that include hobbies, jobs and family life. Each Calico Critter has their own special role in Calico Village which reinforces their goal of traditional values of family, friendship, sharing and togetherness. Everything from their special flocked material that gives them a soft velvet feel, to their homes and furniture are made with incredible detail that adds to their lovable demeanor. 

Calico Critters are wholesome, never trendy and continue to inspire the imagination and creativity of children around the world. They keep their themes of giving, friendship and happiness top of mind earning them several awards, including the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Award.  

Come in and meet the families and immerse yourself (and children) into the magical world of Calico Critters.
