Calico Critters Cozy Cottage Starter Set Kids Product Review

 


The Cozy Cottage Starter Set just may be the perfect way to start a Calico Critter collection! This cozy cottage comes fully assembled and ready to play with everything you need for hours of pretend play fun. Over 10 furniture pieces & accessories including Bell Hopscotch Rabbit, bed with matching sheets, round table with chairs, kitchen counter with sink & oven, moveable ladder for easy access to each floor, cookware and yummy food!


Really? Ease of use? Do we even have to rate the Cozy Cottage Starter Set in this category? Hand the Cozy Cottage over to a little girl or boy and get out of their way! They know just what to do from there! In no time they’ll have Bell Hopscotch Rabbit making dinner, climbing the ladder, taking a snooze and exploring a whole new Calico Critters world! The only thing that won’t be easy will be getting your little one to stop playing and come to the dinner table or go to bed!

Like all Calico Critters toys, the Cozy Cottage Starter Set is made well. The cottage and all the accessories are made of durable plastic and will last and last. No durability concerns.

The Cozy Cottage Starter Set is just adorable – and your kids will immediately be drawn to it! And don’t tell them, but if you sneak a peek at your little ones while they are playing pretend with the Cottage, there’s nothing cuter in the world!

Your child’s imagination is the limit! Translation: unlimited functionality! Add in the ability to build onto the set with other Calico Critters components, and your child has a chance to create a pretend world where the playing goes on and on!

Well…the Cozy Cottage Starter Set isn’t exactly inexpensive. In fact, some may say it is exactly the opposite of inexpensive. With a retail price just under $50.00 it is fair to say that the Cozy Cottage isn’t going to fall into a workable price range for many parents. If you have a child that is into collecting and playing with dolls and dollhouses, the price might not seem too high, but if your kids are just starting to get into it, get ready, the dolls, dollhouses and accessories can get pretty pricey!

It seems like dollhouses and playhouses have been around as long as little kids have been around – so it would be hard to call the concept totally new! But the Calico Critters are so adorable, and the Cozy Cottage Starter Set is the perfect way to introduce your little one to the fun. The house is so cute, the accessories are fun to play with and the included Bell Hopscotch Rabbit lets the fun begin immediately! We love the style – and that scores big originality points for us!

If you can handle the price tag, than the Calico Critters Cozy Cottage Starter Set is the perfect way to introduce your little one to the world of imaginative play that a doll house can offer! It is made well, the function is limitless, and it includes everything you need to get the fun play started right away! There’s a reason little girls love Calico Critters – add the Cozy Cottage Starter Set to your child’s collection of toys and you’ll see why!
