Review of "Sylvanian Families Spotter Meerkat Family"
Thanks everyone for the R/R/Cs, still much appreciated....... Especially thanks for all the E's ... Looks like dooyoo has finally given up the ghost. Not even sending vouchers out now... shame
If you own a television, read newspapers or magazine, or even if you wander down the streets passed the many advertisements that are plastered everywhere, then you’ll have seen those little creatures, nay animals that are advertising a certain car insurance. The animals in question are those little things called Meerkats which most people either find ’annoying’ or ’cure’, but either way there is a certain company that are relying on the latter to help sell a certain little family that they have brought onto the market.
Yes. That’s right, the Meerkat family are living in the Sylvanian world and seem to be living happy with the many other families that walk the Sylvanian land.
The meerkat family, or better known as the Spotter‘s, (apparently) with the mother Beatrix, who dons a rather fetching 1950’s pink with white spotted dress and little apron, and there’s Harry, the father, who wears a khaki coloured uniform for his daily work. Then we have the two children, Gail, who is dressed similar to her mother, and Alfie, who has more a casual look, for the 1950’s anyway, which I can only call dungarees and a shirt to match.
The clothes can be removed and are held in place by good old fashioned hook and eye, (Velcro), to keep the clothes in place
They aren’t massive, with the smaller one being about 40mm in height whilst the parents are about 60mm in height, so they all fit into most of the Sylvanian properties and vehicles. They don’t even fall over either, as long as the legs are straight, so you can leave them standing on their own, although if you knock them they will fall over as they only have small feet
Plus, as they’re Meerkats, they are pretty ‘cute’ too with there ‘ginger coloured head, fluffy tails, button nose and large black eyes.
There are additions to this family in the form of the triplets and grand parents, but they do have to bought separately, which is a bit of a nuisance really as you’d think the whole family would come together.
So what about the price for this four figure family that live in the Sylvanian world?
They sell in the region of £10.00 to £15.00, which is not a bad price for what you get and the quality of the build.
And for me, although I don’t regularly play with the meerkat family, (honest, I don’t spend hours on end pretending that they are cooking, cleaning and generally having fun in the make believe world of Sylvanian), I can honestly say that I have a lot of, shall we say experience, in what they are made of and how long they will stand the test of time.
And in my experience, and outright belief, that these little figures are well made and will no doubt last a long time if used in the manner they are designed to be used.
They’ll last even longer if you just buy them to add to a collection that you just want to exhibit for all to see.
Well worth the money indeed.
