Calico Critters Adventure Treehouse Review

2013 July 29

Calico Critters Adventure TreehouseOur Calico Critters Adventure Treehouse review covers one of my daughter’s favorite Calico Critter playsets from 2013’s wave of releases. Designed specifically for the Calico Critters children figures the tree is smaller than the earlier treehouse (released a few years ago) and is more of a playhouse than a home. 

Let’s take a closer look:

Calico Critters Adventure Treehouse Review

The Adventure Treehouse features a small wooden cabin placed on top of a sculpted tree which sits on a base of grass. There are three distinct levels on the tree and lots of places for the Critters to interact and have fun.

The cabin can be removed from the tree and placed elsewhere, allowing for increased playability. This is a wonderful asset to the set. Children can play with their critters both in the tree and in the cabin separately, and both components can be placed easily amongst children’s existing Critter houses or structures.

In addition it would make a perfect first set, combining a natural “organic” element with a small “critter-made” house is a large part of the appeal of Calico Critters. The ability to customize the set in this way ensures its longevity with children.

The tree itself is where all the action happens. The three levels feature a slide, a large deck, a swing and a pulley to lift various items in a bucket. While the lower level is open the second level could be used as a small living space and the upper level has space to house the log cabin or act as a large play deck if the cabin is removed. The upper level also includes a beautiful bird house – with a hole in the shape of a Critter head, and a wooden tree-ladder for critters to climb up to the upper level treetop canopy.

Calico Critters Adventure Treehouse | Our Verdict:

Calico Critters Adventure Treehouse Inside 1The set is wonderful to look at and play with. It is clear that alot of thought has gone into the Adventure Treehouse and personally I can see why my daughter desires it so much. It adds an organic element to her existing collection and a place for her critter children to play amongst nature.

About the only fault I have with it is the steepness of the slide. As you can see from the image on the right it is a pretty scary ride down! My daughter didn’t seem to mind and the critters certainly fly down fast but we’ve heard no complaints from them as yet 🙂

Another feature of the Adventure treehouse is that it can be combined with the Calico Critters Lakeside Lodge Set. In one of the images below you can see that it fits in well with the larger Log Cabin set, though if I had a choice between the two I would take the Treehouse every time for its beautiful design and style.

The set measures 13 inches high by 11.5 inches wide and 15 inches deep and as with most Calico Critters playsets it doesn’t come with any figures.

You can purchase the Adventure Playset from Amazon who have an extensive range of Calico Critters playsets and families. If you are in Europe or Australia you can purchase the set, known as the Sylvanian Families Children’s Treehouse from Amazon UK.

Calico Critters is known as Sylvanian Families in the UK and the brand is very big over there. They often release videos for their major products and I found one for the Treehouse. Enjoy!
