toy Willerby & Morris Minor tow vehicle

While looking for Calico Critter Christmas presents, I found a toy trailer set that is new to me. It's on eBay. Buy it now for $80.

Calico Critters Caravan Family Camper Set ~BRAND NEW~ - eBay (item 200542750174 end time Dec-12-10 11:37:29 PST)

There's the Willerby model I saw in a client's house recently!

However I believe Tom should remove this post since it is clearly encouraging completely unsafe towing practices - there is no way can a Morris Minor safely tow a Vogue, and Tom is just encouraging dangerous behaviour with this post.

PS I've never see a convertible Moggie with wood framing before.

It is not a Morris Minor, It's a toy - Take a close look - any item that is so small that a rabbit is 1/2 it's size could not be confused with a real car and camper.

It's just a toy? I want my $80 back. I figured once I got rid of the rabbit infestation, I would have the RV deal of the century.

If you read the fine print, the car is sold separately, and the trailer sleeps only four. I have serious reservations about the logistics of roof mounted bunks, and the long-term practicality of unglazed windows.

The swing out floor plan is intriguing, but leaves the bath area quite exposed, and is probably the cause of the obvious rodent infestation.

Gad, talk about a leaker waiting to happen. We know Cadet owners have a tough time finding replacement windows, this would be worse

So, trying to figure out the logistics of putting baby rabbits to bed. Bunnies can jump, but not that high. Do they get loaded into bed and then the roof raises up (talk about sleeping under the stars!!) or do they just wait for a large human hand to swoop down and lift them into bed?

<sigh> I had 2 Morris Minors when I was in High School.
One was a 2-door sedan, and one was a Woodie Station Wagon...

They look more like cats to me... pointed ears and whiskers...

Good eye Floyd. The figures are Fisher Cats, not Hopscotch Rabbits. By the way, I checked on the price for the Morris Minor - $50. Perhaps one might guess that we have 5 granddaughters under the age of 9.

Andrew, I've seen a Morris Minor pickup truck towing a 13' Scamp here in Texas. When I posted here about it, someone replied that they knew of the rig and the Morris is highly modified. It has a Ford V6 from a Capri.

My daughter has a collection of these - no camper though. They come in calico cats, foxes, rabbits, racoons, field mice and probably a few other things you might not want in your camper.

I agree these may look like cats, but the POs were definitely mice. I wonder what happened to them?

Regards,

Matt

Minor convertibles had 2 doors and no wood.
