Calico Critters Townhome
It is a two storey house that has the notable feature of being the first Calico Critters house to have working lights. As with most of the Calico Critters House playsets, the Townhome doesn’t come with any figures or accessories.
The two lights are interchangeable and can be placed in various points around the house or you can add two more lights to have a four fully lit areas.
The house is designed to work as a 4 sided home or, with hinges on one side, to open up and be played with inside. The house has a pink/ red tiles roof and cream walls with highlights of white and rose on the windows, doors and verandah.
The house measures 12″ x 12″ x 12″ closed up and inside there are four large rooms and a small plastic divider which allows you to do some DIY renovations and add another room where you choose.Stairs on the outside lead up to a verandah but when you open the house up to be played with the staircase can be moved to a desired location inside.
Some parents have had concerns about the size of the house, that it is small compared to other play houses.
This is indeed a negative for some people but I find the size to be perfect if you are after a small place to play and store the figures and furniture. It fits in well with the size of the Calico Critters theme, given it is a family house and anything bigger would look out of place.
I find large plastic houses an eyesore and hard to store once play is finished so having one this small is a bonus in my eyes.
If you take a look at the pictures and keep in mind the size of the figures and the furniture in each room then it will give you an idea of what is possible with the playset. If it seems too small then the larger, Calico Critters Cloverleaf Manor might appeal as it is quite a bit bigger.
Calico Critters Townhome Extensions
You can also add a Conservatory Verandah onto the set which allows for greater outside play for the critters. The conservatory has two levels joined by a ladder and can also be used as a separate summer house on its own. An extension set that includes extra lights and curtains is also available.
