Series and Collections


Each year new Cats Meow Village pieces are issued in Series, this has included both numbered series, (e.g. Series I … XIV, etc.), and also special theme series. (e.g. Christmas Series, Back-roads Series, General Stores, etc.)

  1. When was the first Christmas set made/ sold?

    • Thanks for your visit.

      I believe the first Christmas Series was Williamsburg Christmas Series issued in 1983. There were 4 pieces: Georgian House, Federal House, Garrison House, and Christmas Church.

      This info is from the Dee Williams book – “The Cat’s Meow Village – 10 years of Building History”

      Hope this information helped.
