All of the sets have been photographed and inventoried on the collection section of our webpage so enjoy yourself as you look around!

Also in November, I published the first four stories about Orchard's Keep, my Sylvanian village. The stories feature the four boys that you see at the top of my web site: Gromwell Cottontail, Peter Pigglywink, Buster Slydale, and Winton Lambrook. Hopefully, I'll get some more stories written soon, but for you can read what's written on the "A Calico Town" page.

There were many other updates over the last few months too. I know that I just made the International Playthings Calico Critters Checklist current and up-to-date, and I added two more ready-to-play set storybook scans to the "fan information" page. Let's see... I'm not sure what else you'll find, but I bet you you'll enjoy yourselve while you're looking around.

Here's hoping for more Calico fun through 2011!

Hi,I was wondering, does collecting sylvanian family is really a good idea? The reason is, my bf just bought me the contry market collection along with a few dolls and I'm thinking about starting my own collection.

I have to say yours is the biggest collection I have seen.
What are you going to do if your daughter doesn't take to the Critters? Though I can see no reason at all why that would happen as they are irresistible.
Have you seen the Sylvanian Families DVDs?
I just uploaded a post about the two I bought from (with short excerpts) if you would like to take a look.
Still in awe of your site and collection! :0)

(Btw im that 9 year LOL)
