 Our Review

My children are very fond of the Calico Critters toys and have recently had the opportunity to review (in my opinion) one of their greatest play sets. The Calico Critter’s Lakeside Lodge is a high quality toy set that provides hours of fun for your child. This product comes already assembled and all that is required from you and your child is to add on the accessories. What I especially love about the Lakeside Lodge is that its great for both boys and girls and can be a great toy for a large age group. Not only does my seven year old daughter find herself intrigued with this adorable critter set, but so does my three year old son. We have owned a variety of different play house type toys over the years and I have to say that this one is by far my favorite. I know my children both agree because the Lakeside Lodge is not one of those toys that collects dust!

 Here are some images of the inside of the Lakeside Lodge, as well as the outside where there is a hot tub for the critters to relax in. All doors and attached pieces are easy, even for the littlest hands, to maneuver.

 Here is my three year old son playing so contently as he places the callico critters inside the Lakeside Lodge. He truly enjoys putting all the pieces in their place and recreating a living area for the critters.

  13. We see these things all the time at Target and my kids always ask for them. We’ve gotten the mouse family for my younger daughter because I call her Mouse. She loves them! I have not given in to one of the playsets, yet. I’m getting close, though! Thanks for the honest review!

  14. These make me smile from ear to ear, Now days you dont see toys the way you did when I was growing up, and that wasnt long ago, but these ones always meant so much more..

  17. I just found on their website they have a tree house that would look good and add more fun to the lakeside lodge. So if you wanted to expand your could add that set and probably a few more. This is really nice.
