I brought mine from Amazon and paid around £8 for them which I think is excellent value, especially considering that the RRP is around £15.99.
The family are super cute, especially with their sticky out trademark beaver front teeth and there is no mistaking which animal they are meant to be. I like the fact that the Sylvanian arms and legs move and it means Lauren can get more involved in her play with them by sitting them around the table for tea, holding small objects in their hands or her favourite is giving the other figures little hugs.
Wade is the father, he is dressed in a grey pair of dungarees and so does his son Roger, mother Nancy and daughter Misty have a pinafore on. All the clothes are removable which I really like (and so does Lauren, she likes to change the clothes around of all her animals).
The parents measure around 4 inches and the children about and inch smaller which means Lauren can hold them nicely in her hand (it also means that they fit nicely in my bag or coat pocket when we are out and about).
Sylvanians are always a bit hit with Lauren and playing with them really helps ignite her imagination, it’s lovely just to sit back and observe how she plays with them and re-lives her own personal experiences.
The range available is one of the best I have ever seen, it consists of every animal you could thing of and also every piece of furniture or house possible. Prices can start as little as £4 but can go as high as £110, like I said earlier, it always best to shop around and if you are thinking of Christmas, start shopping early. I already have about 5 sets ready and waiting for when Santa comes and I’m still looking.
I think I am also in love with the Sylvanian range as much as Lauren now, what I really like is that we also use them as a learning tool, whether it be to talk about real life scenarios or in this case, talking about and finding out interesting facts about beavers.
Overall, I would really recommend these and give them 5 out of 5 stars,
