Calico Critters 7 Seater Review

My daughter has been wanting a Calico Critters car for a long time, so we finally got our first Calico Critters  car, this is the Calico Critters 7 Seater car.

It took her  a while to convince me. We had bought the Sylvanian Families Caravan toy, and now she needed a car to tow the caravan. And to be honest, she was right. What use would a caravan have if you cannot pull it, unless you just use it as a home in a caravan park.

My children always wanted a seven seater in real life, and we still do not have it. Instead we settled with the Calico Critters 7 seater car. At least we have now a 7 seater. The real one will come sometime.

The Calico Critters 7 seater is ideal for the Calico Critters Hopscotch Rabbit Family, since they are a large family. Her daughter Freya also lives in the Calico Critters Cozy Cottage, also known as the Starter home.

What’s in the Front of the Calico Critter 7 Seater Van?

The front of the car has 2 seats, the steering wheel, and the dashboard. The dashboard is only a sticker imitating the dashboard. They have not put much detail in the dashboard, but enough for a child.  The sticker has  a speedometer, a tachometer(if  I am not mistaken) and a fuel gauge. There is also the radio and other controls.

There is not a gear box, accelerator or brake either. There are  two cup holders on the floor between the two seats. It is very simple, but it is more than enough for the kids and the critters.

How do the Doors and Window Work in the Calico Critters Seven Seater Van?

The two front doors  of the seven seater do not open. The back doors and the trunk door open.

I love the door handles. I think they are cute. You do not need to click on the door handle to open. You just need to pull the door open.

The car does not have a roof. and the window openings do not have glass or plastic in the windows. They are just open windows. But hey, as a toy is a really nice car to have. Kids can play for hours with it, and the only limit is their imagination.

The Calico Critters 7 seater does not come with a roof rack. but you can always buy the Calico Critters Roof Rack and picnic set. This roof rack will fit perfectly in the car.

Is the Calico Critters Seven Seater a Car or a Camper Van?

The nice thing about the Calico Critters 7 seater car is that you can convert it into a camper van. Remove the back seat and put any furniture you like, like a kitchen and a table, and you got a camper van.

That is so cool. The car resembles a real seven seater. It is only missing the roof and the windows. and of course the engine.

The table and kitchen in this image are not included in the Calico Critters 7 Seater, but it comes with the Calico Critters Cozy Cottage Starter Home.
