Calico Critters Card Game: Review and Giveaway

hypothesis “Who’s Missing” Calico Critters Card Game from International Playthings will provide a great indoor activity that will not only improve memory but provide entertainment, too!


One pack of “Who’s Missing” Calico Critters Card Game, a rainy day and an excited 5 year old ready to play cards with Mom!  About Calico Critters “Who’s Missing”:

calicocritters “Great for rainy or cold days when outside play isn’t option, the “Who’s Missing” Calico Card Game brings Calico Critters popular line of favorite friends—like the Fisher Cats and Hopscotch Rabbits—to life in a new way!

For ages 3 and up, this classic card game involves memory, strategy, and of course, fun!  The dealer deals out 5 cards in a row.  Players hide their eyes while the dealer takes away a card.  Who can remember which critters are missing?  As the game is played, the row of cards grows, so the game becomes more challenging the longer you play.  Cards are also fun collector items for Calico Critters fans!”

results With the weather getting warmer, my girls want to play outside all day long!  So when it rains, it’s quite a challenge to brighten their day and find fun and entertaining activities without reaching for the television remote.  So when I was asked to review the “Who’s Missing” Calico Critters Card Game, I couldn’t wait to surprise Lily, my 5 year old with the new toy!


The first rainy day, I pulled out the cards and we read through the various options.  Lily and I decided to play decided to play “No More Critters.”   This game is similar to UNO in that you have to match numbers or pictures in a race to empty your hand of cards first.  Lily really enjoyed the pictures of the Calico Critters and made this much more fun than traditional cards.  Her favorite was the Beagle Family (mainly because we have a beagle at home!).  I was impressed with how quickly Lily caught on to the game and she actually beat me twice!

The next rainy day, we plan to pull out the cards again and try out the other card games!


International Playthings definitely came up with a winning toy in this card game!  Lily and I had a blast playing “Who’s Missing” Calico Critters.  The game did indeed provide lots of fun and quality time with my daughter and can be purchased for only $9.99!
