Calico Critters Skyride Adventure Review

Calico Critters Skyride Adventure 2Seriously, doesn’t everyone need a Balloon X Bicycle mashup? I just want to hug whoever thought of this set because it has absolutely made my day. It even comes with a bird!

It’s the steam-punk design that draws you in and the football-shaped balloon (stitched with colourful fabric) that adds an extra level of cute/quirk.

The vehicle seats three critters and is surprisingly stable, despite only having three wheels (one of which is tiny) and the ‘huge’ balloon on the top. There is no fear of overbalancing and you can roll this around the floor without fear of it tipping over and spilling the critters out to certain doom.

Two larger critters (mum/dad/big brother/big sister) can sit in the back seat while the front is really only suitable for a baby. Of course you can try and squeeze more critters in but they won’t look as elegant on their sky ride adventure.

There are two propellers, one at the front and one at the rear, and both spin — for extra speed :0)  The wheels also spin. The set comes with a picnic basket (pink), a picnic rug and some snacks to replenish your energy after a big morning cycling over Calico Village.

I highly recommend this set if you are after something to ignite your child’s imagination. Full of whimsy and magic, this bike/balloon reminded me of a flying vehicle form the movie, Tinkerbell and the Lost Treasure.

    What year did they change the hands (thumbs are separated from fingers) to paws? The current critters are made with paws style.
