Kids have big imaginations! They love to create stories and act out events through play. Calico Critters are perfect for engaging little hands and minds in developing ideas that promote family and friendship. We enlisted a little help from one of our favorite playdate friends to checkout the Calico Critters Sweet Raspberry Home and Red Roof Country Gift Set.

 Calico Critters Sweet Raspberry Home

The Calico Critters Sweet Raspberry Home is an adorable home recently added to the Critters collection. With it's charming red roof and open interior there's lots to love about this cozy family home. Imagine a kitchen, living room, bathroom and baby nursery give children lots of space for pretend play. It comes with nursery furniture, a two-in-one bed and an attached slide as well as a baby Rabbit figurine.

They loved that you can pose Grace so that she can sit or stand. Put her to bed for nap-time, take a ride down the slide or sit her at the table to have a snack.

Door openings, floor slots and an open roof allow you to connect the Raspberry Home to other Calico Critters play sets.

A great gift idea for ages 3+!

Unboxing the Red Roof Country Home Gift Set was a BIG surprise! It elicited squeals, oohs and ahhhhhs immediately. This would make the BEST big ticket Christmas gift if you're child loves play sets and collecting small figurines.

Nestled in the Village is the beautiful and spacious Red Roof Country Home.  With four rooms, a terrace, staircase and lights, Critter families can enjoy the beauty of the village in the comfort of their home.  Children can create various layouts in a 90˚angle, 180˚angle or closed setting.  Connect the Country Home to the Sweet Raspberry Home and Cozy Cottage for an even grander household.

They imagined the Hopscotch family sitting down together for dinner, climbing the stairs to get ready for bed, taking a bath and tucking in for the night. I loved seeing how their imaginations lit up with creative ideas for how these cute characters could spend time together. They enjoyed role playing with storylines for Heidi and Bell and how they might interact with each other as well as their mama and papaCalico Critters - Best Christmas Gifts for Kids - Holiday Gift Guide @frostedevents
