So DD seemed interested in Calico Critters last year (dang Timbuk Toys and their CC set-up) and begged for some more. She opted, out of all of Toys R Us, last year for my mom to buy her a set of a mom and two babies of the CC and played with them constantly. So I got her some more Calico Critters and playsets for Christmas.
You guessed it -- she stopped playing with them. She's hardly touched them, honestly. I had picked up some more CC stuff 50% off to set her up on her bday but now she just isn't that into it and I don't know if that will resume. She starts playing with it at Timbuk toys and asks for more. I point out she has plenty at home and doesn't seem interested in playing with them and she assures me she will. She hasn't. So what, if anything, to do with my stash? It has a couple furniture sets, a car and two additional sets that include other animals. Also the nursery school which was going to be the big Christmas present this year.
DH thinks we start to give them away. We do have 2 girl bdays coming up that I know of where I could easily use the sets and I could ask my sister if she wants to offer it to her youngest DD. A neighbor advised me to hang on to them as her DD's waxes and wanes and DD will likely be back into it as she gets older. WWYD? TIA!
