About Sylvanian Families
Kids that love animals no doubt enjoy collecting Sylvanian Families, which are tiny, detailed collectible figurines. The figurines are all divided into families of animals, which include various family members. Collectors can purchase each family, and then buy play sets to place them in for play, such as barns, houses, cars, and telephone boxes. The figures are made of plastic but feel soft to the touch due to the flocked coating on the outside of the figurines. Sylvanian Families offer many characters, including families of rabbits, foxes, bears, sheep, pigs, and dogs. Clothes can be purchased for the Sylvanian Families, and family members can be bought separately and added to existing families. New and different animal families are added each year, and the families can be purchased online or at most toyshops. You can buy entire rooms or furniture piece by piece, and special items can be purchased for your Sylvanian Families, such as Halloween costumes, or baby pushcarts. Kids that enjoy travelling with their Sylvanian figures probably need a carrying case, which holds a few family members as well as some accessories. The toys became trendy and went global quickly, and the characters even starred in a short-lived television series. Fans and collectors of Sylvanian Families can join a collectors’ group, and receive special offers on new toys. The Sylvanian Families do everything from paddle in canoes to drink tea and even go camping. Tiny, detailed dishes, food, tea pots, and toys for baby animals can be purchased, and large homes for the families include many stories, lights that work, and separate rooms for family members that can be decorated with furniture purchased separately.
