    How can I get replacement lights for the Calico Critters Luxury Townhome?

    I would like to know what Calico Critters are made of. Particularly what chemicals are used in making the plastic from which they are made. Can anyone tell me about this or whom I would contact in the company to find out? We live in Chicago and we know the US has low standards for toxicity in toys. Then we found Sylvianian Families in Germany and thought, the EU has higher standards, particularly with BPH. Then we find that they are also sold here. We are wondering whether all of them are made with the lower US standard, or the higher EU standard. Or different standards for different markets. If so, then we would like to get the safer versions of them.

    Thank you,

    I just wanted to write about how thankful I am for your Critters. I have an eleven year old son who has mitochondrial myopathy. Because of this he is very ill and can not attend school. He has 34 diffrent medications he takes and has a number of breathing treatments he has to do everyday. We had found one of the small houses at a garage sale with random furniture and missing quite a number of pieces, but he fell in love with it all the same. He then saved for three months to purcace his first family. (The Labrador’s) He has made additional funiture out of Lego’s until he can same all of his pennies to buy a piece at a time. I just wanted to thank you for such a wonderful product. He really enjoys interacting wit hthe critters and dooing home improvements with Lego’s. He says some day he would like to have a “whole village”. He struggles to find things to do because he has to sit so much but your produt is perfect! Things are really hard for my son. his medical care is quit expensive! But what a JOY to watch him play! Thank you again!

    Hi Karen
    We aren’t the official company but we love that your son gets so much out of the Critters.
    Wonderful combining them with Lego too, another quality and creative toy.

    I thought about having calico critters make a calico critter land that would have a lot of them. Some of them would be huge! And I want you to make some rides like the tea cup ride, or the play park, only will you please make the calico critters come with the ride?

    I am wondering if there is anywhere I can get a new Calico Critter Hedgehog mother. My granddaughter got this for Christmas and the dog immediately ate her. Needless to say, we had lots of tears. I hope you can help! Thanks so much!

    Hi there,

    My daughter lost baby Apple (who is a bunny in a play set with Jake the squirrel).

    Is there a way to buy just the Apple?

    Thank you.

    My toddler ripped the books and stickers that came with the nursery. My 7-year-old son (the owner of said nursery) is heartbroken. Is there a way to order a replacement of the paper sheets (stickers, books, etc) that came with the set?
