Sylvanian Families Caravan and Pony
Advantages: great toy to develop your childs imagination
Disadvantages: small parts could be a problem if you have young children
I talked my daughter into getting this for her birthday last year because I loved the look of it and thought she would enjoy playing with it.
She already had the caravan and car but this looked too cute not to buy. It wasn't cheap at around £50 I bought this one from Argos.
The caravan did not disappoint! It comes with a little Pony that attaches to the front of the caravan with a harness so that he can actually pull the caravan along during play. The Pony can also be released from the front when the caravan is not moving, my daughter unfastens the harness and leaves him to one side to eat the grass (so im told!).
The caravan itself is just gorgeous, the detail was unbelievable it has little lanterns on the front, a little table and chairs that fold away and go under the floor in the caravan. It has little beds for the kids and the adults. It also comes with all the usual sylvanian pots and pans etc these are great for the games that the children play with them my daughter will often set up the little table with all the plates and cups outside the caravan ready for all the little characters to have their tea, very cute!
The only drawback with the set is that it doesn't come with any people so unless you already have some this will be an extra expense, we already had quite a lot so it didn't affect us.
My daughter has spent many happy hours playing with this set. The caravan is really easy to play with the roof can open up so that the inside of the caravan can be easily accessed. She loved putting the little characters into their sleeping bags and then putting them on the bunk beds.
You can stand the characters on the outside area of the caravan so you can pretend they are steering the pony or they can sit inside safely as it moves on its travels.
As the set comes with a pony this can be detatched and used seperately so its like two toys in one! My daughter has often just used the pony with some of her other sets as its so lifelike, it has a real tail with real hair which she loves brushing etc.
It certainly developed her imagination and she used to pretend they were travelling along the road and then stopping at campsites, she used some of her other sylvanian sets too to make pretend campsites.
I will also help to develop your childs skills for playing with other children and co-operation skills, My son even joined in playing with it (don't tell anyone ha) he was 8 at the time so it is definitely value for money as it seems it will keep them engaged for a few years.
The caravan does come with small bits as all the sets do so I recommend investing in some small tubs and putting all the bits in there after play is finished and then just storing the tub inside the caravan to keep everything together and nice.
In summary its a brilliant buy for a little girl or boy and will provide endless hours of fun.
