Calico Critters Lakeside Lodge & Hazelnut Chipmunk Family {#Review} {#Giveaway}

Until recently I had never heard of Calico Critters. Calico Critters are a line of miniature animal figures, with homes, furniture and accessories. The animal figures are unique because they are made of a special flocked material. My daughter Lydia went nuts when she seen them at Toys "R" Us awhile back. Calico Critters are a product of International Playthings, LLC. International Playthings has been in the business of designing, manufacturing, importing and distributing quality toys for over 45 years. ALL of their products are tested for safety and this includes checking for the presence of lead and other harmful chemicals! They have so many items for your little ones and toys for all ages.  Lydia received a Calico Critters Lakeside Lodge & Hazelnut Chipmunk Family from them for review. 
 As you can see, she was pretty thrilled!
 The Calico Critters Lakeside Lodge was a surprise to us because it was a Bonus Gift Set! It has 60 pieces, including the lodge, 2 bunny critters, and a 7 passenger van! 
 The pieces were super easy to put together and they were self explanatory.
There were instructions on two flaps of the box as well!
The two bunnies that came with the set are completely ADORABLE! The lodge is so cute and has so many features. The porch can move anywhere you want it to be.. and it has a hot tub hidden inside of it!
After Lydia put it together, she wanted to open her Calico Critters Chipmunk Family so that she can play with them all together.
This Chipmunk Family is SOO CUTE! They are all fuzzy. I do want to mention that all of the Calico Critters clothing are removable! Learn more about them: Mother, Savannah is a famous fashion stylist. Father, John is a furniture designer. Sister, Sarah likes taking pictures of her favorite moments. Brother, Dominic is energetic and loves to climb trees. The Lakeside Lodge Bonus Gift Set came with Birthday Party extras! It came with adorable decorations, presents and food! Check them out below. Lydia set it all up for you! It came with the cutest tiny forks, cups and more!
 Lydia put their hats on and decorated. She wanted little bunny to celebrate in style. She said they had to open presents before they ate.
 After she had them all open presents, she had them eat their salad with lemonade to drink.
 She then made them all eat pizza.. whew I would be so full by now!
After she had them all eat pizza, it was time for cake! How cute is this?
 After she had her critters eat, she told me it was time for them to nap in their hammocks. The Lakeside Lodge has two of them for these little guys to relax in!
 It also has a cute balcony and ladder to the top!
The outside balcony is cute too! She told me here that Mrs. Bunny was telling Savannah "Thank you for coming". This little 7 passenger van that came with the bonus set is just too cute. You can add your stickers where they belong and choose how you want the seats to be. The back hatch opens up as well.
 She loaded everyone up so that they can go on a road trip. The littles have car seats with seat belts too!
 Two of the doors open for easy access. So many cute details.
I had a giggle over the Baby In Car Sticker. Too cute! Overall, I completely love both products she received! The Calico Critters Lakeside Lodge & Hazelnut Chipmunk Family are both adorable. These products have so much detail with them. They are so realistic and life like!  These are toys for her to play with for years to come! The Calico Critters Lakeside Lodge can be purchased for $59.95. The Hazelnut Chipmunk Family can be purchase for $22.95! You can purchase them on their website via one of the links above, at Toys "R" Us, Barnes & Noble Stores and other toy and mass merchandise retailers!
