I like to wander through toy stores, usually on the off chance that they have Sylvanian Families. Well, last winter at some point I managed to get out of work early enough to actually stop by Cheeky Monkey Toys, and they had Calico Critters! I don't recall if they had a good selection or not, but at the time they had the meerkat triplets, and I couldn't resist. So here are Peter, Penelope, and Patricia.
I also went by Old World Designs and picked up a bunch of fun thread. Mostly with the intention of using them to knit or crochet clothing for my Sylvanian Families. I haven't had a chance to use the thread yet, however.
