Sylvanian Families - Timeless toys

I am sure our childhood memories all include playing with Sylvanian Families.

Since 1985, Sylvanian Families has been loved by many people around the world. It is a nostalgic toy range that attracts people from different age groups. Based on three concepts, Nature, Family and Love, children can explore the power of imagination and learn to care and share with one another. Sylvanian Families are there to help children acquire key social skills.

All of the families live in the Sylvanian Village, where everyone enjoys the world of nature. Set around everyday lives, to be enjoyed in comfort, our brand covers a range of activities in which children can explore different play patterns and create their own stories.

Everyone can be a part of the family, and learn about relationships including kindness and love of others.

There is a variety of houses, shops,furniture and accessories all of which are very detailed. Every figure has got a sweet, unique expression, good form and size. By the nature of the flocking the figures warm appearance is very tangible to a child.

Sylvanian Families is an evergreen toy, it has a friendly appeal to everyone. It has many different aspects that appeals to a wide range of children including playing-doll, decorating the homes, collecting the furniture, and changing the outfits. There are no rules or regulations which allows children to create their own stories and to use their imaginations.

Sylvanian Families promotes wholesome play and has an enduring appeal which helps to develop thoughts and emotions.

I recently received the chocolate Rabbit family to include in my Eater Gift guide and my youngest loved it as already has the hotel passed down from family. So when i was asked if we wanted to review and add the convertible car to the collection, it was a definite yes.

As with all Sylvanian family products, it was well made and sturdy and will take many years of play, it was a great addition to our collection and adds a different element of play, exploring transport and what that can lead to (holidays, adventures and not one mention of mummy's driving abilities!)
My daughter has always loved imaginative play so really gets into a story and creates many wonderful stories and tales her Sylvanian friends have been on. The great thing with Sylvanian families is it is timeless and adaptable so can be whatever your child wants it to be using the vast imaginations they have, and you can keep adding to it. No play session is ever the same! 
I am sure Sylvanian families will be around for many years to come and be passed on to younger generations as ours have been.
