My daughter loves Sylvanians and for Christmas she received the car and caravan set. She already has the burgundy car which is identical however she wasn't disappointed in the slightest.
The car is a pastel blue colour with a cream interior. The car can seat up to 5 Sylvanian figures and you also get two removable baby seats which are attach easily to the back the drivers and passenger seat. Each baby seat has a strip of elastic which acts as the seatbelt, Lauren does find it a little tricky to put the figures in the baby seats as the elastic doesn't have much 'give' in it. On the rear of the car is a little suitcase which can be removed and easily attached back onto the rear of the car.
The car is very realistic with moving wheels and the attention to detail is excellent. It has a number plate reads as LOV3LY.
The car is also available is, racing green and there is a cream one (although I think the cream one may be exclusive to Toys R Us as I haven't seen it anywhere else). There are slightly smaller versions available too.
The car is also compatible to pull the Sylvanian caravan which can be purchased separately for around £40, you can also buy as a set like we received and the price normally ranges from £50 - £60. The RRP of the car alone is around £20, On EBay, they still go for around the same but with the p&p.
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 really like that the car is very light and easy for Lauren to transport around, at the minute, whenever we go out (especially in the car), she likes to bring this with her and it is easy for her to carry (or for me to put in my handbag when she decides she no longer wants to carry!). Most weekends we play with her Sylvanians, its lovely to see her using her imagination or acting out situations.
The only real downside for me is that it does take a little force to attach to the caravan, despite several attempts; Lauren has not yet managed to do this. Having said that, this I would recommend this car and give it 5 out of 5 stars.
Thanks for reading.
This car doesn't come with a family or any characters, those are sold separately.
I bought Hollie this lovely light blue car for the sylvanian families to cruise in as she loves cars yet at the moment she loves sylvanian families too. The car can seat 6 family members.
This one is pictured with the cow family which we don't have as this car doesn't come with a family or any other characters.
The car arrived in the box with no assembly needed. The car can seat 6 characters. Two adults in the front seats, 2 babies in the car seats that are attached to the back of the front seats, then two seats in the back for children or even more adults.
The wheels spin so you can push it around and actually use up a lot of hours of fun with your childs imagination with this car. Hollie really enjoys the rolling feature so she can zoom around the room taking them to the seaside. They usually reccomend sylvanian families toys for 4 years and up because of the type of play these toys involve. Most of the sylvanian families toys involve small pieces so obviously they are unsuitable for under 36m/3years old children.
The childrens car seats can be removed and put back on when needed. They clip into the front seats and have little safety straps to hold them into their seats. With the way Hollie rushes it around the living room floor, I'm surprised they've not been given whiplash yet.
There is a picnic basket in the back which can just push into the small well which was designed to keep it all together quite easily. This is a good addition for the families when they go on a picnic at the beach. Hollie loves to set the car up for a journey around the house. She will try to fit more characters into the car as she doesn't want to leave anyone out.
The cars design is blue with some brown trimmings around the doors and windows without a roof.
The doors don't open which is a shame but the top being open allows much easier access to the car than the doors would.
Where to buy?
I bought this from a small toy shop in my town which sells mostly Sylvanian Families toys but looking online you can get this from lots of different online shops for around £18. I paid around £12 a few months ago in a sale the shop was having. I'm sure the thought of £18 for a toy which doesn't come with characters is quite appalling, but the quality of the sylvanian toys is excellent and well worth it to pay a little extra more to know it's not going to break in five minutes.
Hollie loves playing with her blue car. She really enjoys stuffing all of the families inside so no-one gets left behind and wheeling them around the room. The best parts about the car is how sturdy it is. Hollie is quite heavy handed and I am very happy to let her play with this now as it doesn't look easily breakable at all. She turns the TV off herself when she plays with her Sylvanian toys. I prefer her to be engaged in some kind of motor learning skills and how to play without electronic help which this definitely does.
I am very happy with the price I paid also and the quality of this is very visible when you pick it up.
I am giving this product 5/5 stars and I think Hollie would too.
Perfect toy for something a little bit different and special
This blue saloon car is big enough to take a whole Sylvanian family on a trip. It has two baby car seats in the back and a removable hamper for their picnic. Please note: The Buttercup Friesian Cow Family is sold seperately
