New Toys for Christmas 2014:
Family time should always be fun time, so why not have it with the newest family on the block? It’s the Calico Critters Polar Bear Family Playset, a family of bears – father, mother, and two girls – that have colorful personalities and looks, and will offer hours of fun not just for kids, but for the whole family.
Who Is This For?
Parents who have children aged 3 years old and up will find the perfect present in the Calico Critters Polar Bear Family Playset. They are soft, velvety, and highly durable, so they are definitely perfect for kids. They also look cute – they are polar bears, after all – and kids will absolutely fall in love with them. Toy collectors will also want to have this playset, since it is rare to find polar bear toys.
Things We Like
It only takes one look at the Calico Critters Polar Bear Family Playset to conclude that this is one cute family. They’re definitely a breath of fresh air from the usual “brown teddy bears” fare that we had while growing up.
We like how this family of polar bears gives us a lot of freedom to play around with them. The movable arms, legs, and feet spell hours of fun posing them this way and that.
Their clothes are colorful and reflect their personalities. Peter, the father, is a fisherman, so the nautical look of his clothes is spot on. Lucy, the mother, is a baker, and the apron reflects that. The sisters, Lucy and Beth, are dressed in cute and frilly clothes. But the fun part is how these clothes are removable, so you can change their outfits whenever you want.
The makers of this playset also made sure that it is fully compatible with other Calico Critters toy sets and accessories, such as houses, beds, living room sets and cafés, to name a few.
3 and older. Their small size can present a choking hazard for younger kids.
Things We Don’t Like
Others may find the diminutive size of these miniature polar bears to be too small. The tallest, Peter, is 3.25 inches tall. Parents who have 3-year-old kids are advised to supervise their children whenever they are playing with these miniature dolls, since they may turn into choking hazards.
