On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I post a picture and just a few words.
Sonia and Zoe have really gotten into their Calico Critters in the past year, and I can’t say I’m complaining. Calico Critters are a little on the expensive side, yes, but they don’t break, they don’t have batteries, they don’t make any noise, they encourage creative play, and I really, really like that they haven’t followed the trend of most toys marketed to girls*…no makeup, no huge flirty eyes, and most of them haven’t even been pink-i-fied.
Also, they’re delightfully round and cute.
(*There’s an interesting side-by-side comparison at the bottom of this article which shows what I’m talking about.)
