Kohl’s Cares: $5 Little Critter Line-Up & More

TheMomBuzz received samples from the Kohl’s Cares program to facilitate this review.

Little Critter first appeared in stories back in 1975. He is a favorite character for adults and children, often teaching morals and helping children learn valuable lessons through Little Critter’s antics. His stories talk about going to bed, introducing a sibling, handling a babysitter and more. There are also fun holiday collections that celebrate Halloween, Christmas and Easter. Although he first appeared in stories over three decades ago, new stories are still being written! And that’s why he is a wonderful addition to the Kohl’s Care program.

The Kohl’s Cares program is completely win-win in my opinion. Throughout the year they offer a variety of Beginner Books and coordinating plush toys for just $5 each. The selection changes throughout the year, you can usually find them right at the entrance of the store. And every time you purchase one of these books or plush toys, 100% of the net profit will support children’s health and education initiatives nationwide.


Little Critter Children’s Books that are available now include:

  • Kohl’s Cares® Little Critter’s 3-pc. Board Book Collection Set
  • Kohl’s Cares® Little Critter’s ”Where’s My Sneaker?” Book
  • Kohl’s Cares® ”Little Critter Jack & the Beanstalk” Book
  • Kohl’s Cares® ”Little Critter Hansel & Gretel” Book
  • Kohl’s Cares® Little Critter’s ”Bedtime Storybook” Book

All the books are hard cover. The Jack & the Beanstalk and Hansel and Gretel are lift the flap books, which kids love. The Plush collection includes the Little Critter and his sister.I suggest the board books for 0 – 3. The Lift the flap style I suggest for 3 – 6. The Bedtime Storybook I suggest for 3 – 7.


While there, I also suggest picking up the Matching Game, Zoo Edition. Kids can have a wild time matching their favorite zoo animals. Plus, there are plush animals that complement this game, as well, such as a Bear and Wolf. The matching game comes with 64 cards and is in a nice, sturdy box. The plush and the games are each prices at $5. I like the matching game, because it’s a fun activity for my 6 and 8 year old that works their brains!

As always, I suggest on stopping by at Kohl’s and stocking up on the newest $5 Kohl’s Cares items. These make affordable and wonderful gifts for your own children, nieces and nephews, as well as gift giving to the less fortunate around the holidays.

This current line-up will only be available through September 20th. Some of them are online exclusives.

    I really want to get all of the Little Critters books and the matching game for my 4 year old grandson. His dad had some of the books in grade school and loved them! You can help other children while learning, it’s a win, win situation!
