She loves this set, which includes a red sofa and table as well as a big display case for all the tiny chocolates and macaroons. It even has a masterpiece chocolate castle to display in the clear case. The set includes four plates and one cup and saucer to complete the lounge experience. The tray in the display case can be removed, making it easy to sort and access the tiny sweets. My daughter uses the sofa and table to furnish rooms in her house, and the display case doubles as kitchen storage and cabinetry, making this one of the more versatile sets she owns.
While like most Calico Critters items, this set wouldn’t be good for kids under three thanks to the oodles of tiny pieces, older kids really enjoy the attention to detail, and this set is no exception. The range of chocolate pieces and intricate accessories mean you get a lot of fun for the price point. Like many accessory sets, this one does not include any animals. If you plan to give it to a child and aren’t sure if they own any Calico Critters, you can pair it with a set of Critters to make a complete package.
