Calico Critters Country Tree House
The Calico Critters Treehouse is the biggest playset in the whole Calico Critters and Sylvanian Families toy range, measuring
18 x 16 x 24 inches.
It is also quite unique in that it is not so much a house…but a tree!
Treehouse of Fun
Most Calico Critters have more in common with humans than animals-they live in respectable houses and drive around in cars.
The residents of the Calico Critters Tree House however, seem to be more in touch with their wild animal origins
-or perhaps they just love having fun!
This large treehouse is a mix of comfortable-home and adventure-playhouse, and it’s a combination kids are immediately drawn to.
What Is Included?
The tree house is an irregular shape and obviously takes up a bit of space. It would be best to find a semi-permanent place for it in your home as its not something you can pack up, slip into a cupboard and store other things on top of.
The treehouse has a number of unique features:
A hot tub out on one side branch
A pagoda out on the other side branch
A footbridge linking the pagoda and hot tub
A patio area that encircles the entire tree
A water slide that winds around the side of the tree
A lake with small boat under the tree
Windows, doors and balconies

As you can see from the pictures there really is a lot of room for furniture and unique spaces for the Critters to entertain and play.
These features really set this house apart from other houses in the range.
You can not only play inside the house but also play around the different areas with a slide, a hot tub and the lower lake area all great locations for extra pretend play.
Kids love this sort of thing and it really opens up the style of play that they can incorporate into the Calico Critters figures. The tree gives a sense of being amongst nature rather than in a village type atmosphere. Its Magical.
You can imagine fairies living here too!
It’s All In The Details
As with most Calico Critters toys, a lot of thought has gone into the design of the Tree House.
There are details like railings, ropes, flowers, leaves, wooden planks on the patio and even a tiny wooden bird house nailed to the side of the tree for visiting native birds to make a home.
These two are really very cute and look just a little cheeky. You can imagine them hanging out in the hot tub together and then zooming down the slide to splash in the water below.
Out of all the Calico Critters houses this is definitely my favorite because of the different spaces it provides, the potential for play and the tree theme, kids love playing in trees!
Country Tree House Overview
Size: This is a large and unusually shaped house so you want to be able to display and store it in your child’s room without too much fuss. If you have space then you will appreciate the roomy interior and the outside play areas to store furniture and accessories.
Style: I love the style of this house, it is quite unique. Homey, playful and just plain fun. Kids love the look of the house and its magical places.
Durability: Not much else to add here. Typical hard plastic construction you expect from Calico Critters makes this a long lasting toy- Just keep an eye on the bits and pieces. Interest-wise it will last a good many years and see kids through different stages of their childhood.
Where To Find It: We recommend purchasing from Amazon because they offer a great service and free shipping on this large item.
