Calico Critters Grand Department Store
(Calico Critters $129.88)
Calico Critters continues to produce mini pretend settings with attention to details that make them special. This year's charming department store looks like something from a Victorian Department store from Ladies Row with a hand operated elevator and a gilded revolving door at the entrance. The setting comes with furnishings that would please the most discriminating shopper. It comes with elaborate accessories: Boutique Fashion Set with with a gorgeous golden dressing unit, hangers, mannequin, full-length mirror, and two beautiful satin dresses; Cosmetic Beauty Set with a cosmetic counter, stool, and cosmetics; Fashion Showcase Set with jewelry and hair accessories; a Chocolate Lounge with a shop counter, lounge furniture, tea party accessories and lots of pretend chocolates. There is only one Stella Hopscotch Rabbit who is ready to hop to her shopping. You will no doubt need to add more Calico Critters to staff the store and shop. It's marked 3 and up, but with all the detailed tiny props, this will be a much better gift for older 4s, 5s, and even 6s. Some assembly is needed.
