The Calico Critters Story

Calico Critters live in Cloverleaf Corners. Each one has its own personality and characteristics that makes them special and loveable. Calico Critters are teeny-tiny little creatures, just a little bigger than a kiss! Parents are approximately 3" tall. Brothers and sisters are 2-1/4" tall. Twins are only 1-1/4".

Calico Critters are posable, with jointed heads, legs and arms. They can be positioned to sit, stand, or lie down, as well as reach, wave or "hold hands". And twins have heads that turn!

Calico Critters were first introduced in the mid nineteen eighties under the name of Sylvanian Families. They were initially released in Japan and later available in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom and Ireland. Although the figures were basically the same in all of the countries, the Japanese figures were a little bigger.

In the nineteen nineties, Sylvanian Families traveled a rocky road. In 1993 Sylvian Families were distributed as Calico Critters in the United States and Canada. Although they were introduced into many more countries and gaining popularity, in the mid nineteen eighties distribution stopped in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. But at the end of the century they were back in full swing.
