They seem to be so darn popular that this probably isn’t news to a lot of you, but Calico Critters are new to me. Apparently they were popular in the 80s, and made a comeback in the 2000s. They didn’t catch my eye during either era, but I have noticed that on my most active Facebook kids gear buy/sell group that people are always “ISO” Calico Critters. And anything that does get posted for sale is snapped up immediately, with a bunch of “next!”s.
It is only because of the FB group that I recognized a bag Calico Critters and furniture at VV, and picked it up for $3.99. Not huge sales, but fun, and fast!
