Daisy's Cardboard Village


When I visited my mother yesterday she wanted to stop in at Hobby Lobby, and we spotted these adorable plain brown houses just right for Daisy and her Little Animals.


They are sturdier than cardboard (they're labelled paper mache), and the roofs come off like lids, and you can color them.


And they're very inexpensive--I think the largest was $7 (and there's always that coupon code . . .) The timing was perfect for Daisy, as she had recently acquired a goat postman. Now he's got somewhere to deliver the mail

Yes! My girls have been asking for a Calico Critter house but we've just invested in the animals and furniture because the houses seem too expensive for what you get. These will be perfect for Christmas!

A typical day at Pleasant View Schoolhouse - the comings and goings of visitors of all shapes and sizes. :) (or my conception of it!)

Where oh where do you get the sweet little animal figures?
First time I have commented, but a long time reader.

I would have loved these when I was growing up - anything miniature was fair game. The idea of a goat postman is perfect and the reality (this reality, anyway) is even better :)

Julie, these are called Calico Critters or Sylvanian Animals and we order them from Amazon. Larger cities may have them in toy stores--or you could always go to Germany, where you can find whole window displays full of them . . . .Daisy's dream career is to work in *that* shop.

Is there a donkey family? They could be delivery men.
