I have to say, I simply kind of fell in love with these cute kitties after having seen a couple of them in a local thrift store. Much to my chagrin, they were not for sale. The dreaded "For Display Only" thing - you know. I snapped a photo (not a very good one) of them. They are not in the best condition, but had they been for sale at the right price, I'd have bought them anyway.
Here they are, below:
Calico Critters Puss In Boots, to keep your boots upright when stored . Cutest. Idea. Ever. I only WISH that I could re-create them!
I was on a quest to find one that I could make my own, and I'm happy to report that I am now the owner of this adorable red calico one seen below:
They were also made in green - I found some photos online:
What a cute and useful Calico Critter he is!
Made in the 1980's:
The original price from Lord & Taylor was $12.00.
I mean, come on....how could I resist this face?
