The Range:

Sylvanian Families are a range a beautiful animals, houses and accessories which live in the wonderful and idyllic land of Sylvania. Manufactured by Flair.

All the families are personalised with a name and have a different role within Sylvania.

The product:

This is a two storey little cottage, the back is opened up providing access to two floors, the 1st floor can be removed and placed on the floor to make a large ground floor area.
It comes complete with one rabbit figure - Claire Choclate Rabbit which comes fully clothed in a white blouse with a big red bow on and a blue patterned skirt. You also get some furniture which is a bonus. (the furniture is a table and 2 chairs, range cooker, sink unit, a chopping board, food and a bed which includes a blanket)

Price:

The RRP of this set is £29.99, On EBay, they still go for around the same but with the p&p.

Age range:

All the Sylvanian products is 4 years plus. This is mainly due to the small parts included and the possible choking hazard.

My Opinion:

My daughter has just started collecting the range, Lauren really loved the piglet triplets and the nursery bus so I thought I would buy a small house to see if she also enjoyed this. This seemed one of cheapest houses you could buy, and also as it had the basic furniture included, it meant I didn't have to buy any additions.

When we first opened she was really excited, and ran straight into her playroom to get her other Sylvanian items. It was really easy to assemble and remove the packaging (I hate it when you have to spend a good 10minutes removing wires etc).

We immediately started to play, it was beautiful to see her talking to the little animals and living out real life situations 'its time for dinner, then its bed etc'.

Out of all her Christmas presents (and there was a lot!) it seems to be this that she plays with the most, often taking to furniture out and just taking this to the grandparents at the weekend, however as the cottage is quite small, it wouldn't be much of a hindrance to also take this.

I will definitely be added to the Sylvanian range (but I must wait until a special occasion - or so my other half keeps telling me off for buying when I shouldn't!)

This is a great starter set if you are just wanting to either test the water or ideal as a gift. Although most of the Sylvanian houses you can buy have accessories, there aren't many that have figures and furniture in. The furniture can be quite expensive, for example the bed you get can be purchased for around £5.99 from Amazon, the table and chairs is also this price.

The Sylvanian range is well made, the attention to detail is great, everything is made realistic.

The range of products available is extremely large, almost every animal you can imagine, swings, cars, caravans, furniture, houses, ice-cream vans, schools, the list is endless.

The range of products available is extremely large, almost every animal you can imagine, swings, cars, caravans, furniture, houses, ice-cream vans, schools, the list is endless. The price of the products vary, depending on the size of what you are buying, single baby animals can be purchased from around £5, sets of 7 animals are normally £20. Accessories and houses range for £5 up to £120.

I would recommend this house and give 5 out of 5 stars.

Thanks for reading.
