      4 stars because of price

      My granddaughter has recently started to fall in love with Sylvanian Families. luckily I still had some in the loft from when my daughter used to play with them but I have recently bought her this little set of rabbits for her to enjoy too. In the pack you get 4 rabbits a Mummy, Daddy, a little girl and a little boy and they are really cute! They are still just the same as the ones my own daughter used to play with I can't believe how little these have changed. The rabbits are fuzzy and my granddaughter loves running her finger along their fur. They are wearing clothes which all match each other- red and yellow based. The girls wear dresses and teh boys are wearing little trousers and shirts. Their clothes can come off and mygranddaughter loves to keep undressing them and tring to get them back on. I struggle to get the clothes back on but her little fingers can do it no problem! They are very cute. Their arms and legs move so they can change position. My granddaughter loves playing with these. Sometimes she will play with them on their own and make up games for them and other times she will use them in the house with the furniture that we have. They cost me £15 which I think is very expensive but this seems to be the price people pay for these now so I am glad I kept the other ones we have from when my daughter played with them! They are lovely and very sweet I can see why they appeal to little girls.

      This is my favourite family in my daughters collection

      WHAT ARE THEY? A family of cream rabbits with brown tips on their ears.  There are four rabbits in the set and they are all dressed in the old fashioned clothes that all Sylvanian Families wear.  You can also buy a set of two Chocolate Rabbit twin babies or various limited edition Chocolate Rabbit characters such as the twin babies in a beautiful old fashioned pram or Daddy Chocolate wearing a smart suit instead of his normal clothes. WHAT I THINK This is my favourite family in my daughters Sylvanian Families collection and I have bought lots of the limited edition Chocolate Rabbit figures.  The rabbits are beautiful, their long ears look very lifelike with the dark brown markings and they have all got happy and loveable faces.  I love the way the girl and boy rabbits are dressed because the styles and colours remind me of the 1950s. The Chocolate family are the chocolatiers and sweet makers in the Sylvanian village. The cream colour of them means they get dirty quite easily but as long as you keep their clothes on this is only a problem for their feet and faces. The ears don't get as dirty as you think because the brown tips protect the colour from showing the dirt up, none of the feet, hands or ears have lost their fur even though this set is played with every day. They stand up on their own and the arms and legs all move, you can twist the heads as well but this is quite stiff.  The arms and legs move freely and stay where you put them, this is good but something I expect from Sylvanian Family characters in general.   You can remove the clothes and these will fit on any of the rabbit families but once they are all mixed up you will have to check on the boxes or website to get all yours families clothed correctly again.

      I wonder what you pay for them pound for pound, & what they cost by weigt relative to, say, gold....

      The Chocolate Rabbit family are one of the popular range of Sylvanian Family toy animal figures. These miniature animal dolls are quite nicely made. They have articulated arms, legs and head and are made of plastic covered with a thin skin of glued-on fabric that gives them a softish 'velveteen' surface. For the types with tails e.g. squirrels and these bunnies, the tail is often made of fur fabric. A range of Sylvanian Family familiar animals - dogs, cats, mice, chipmunks etc., are available. All come dressed in somewhat wholesomely old-fashioned turn of the century / 1950s-style clothes, stand up on their hind legs, and are about three to four inches high (the child Sylvanian Family creatures - and there's a range of babies too - being proportionately smaller, of course). Additional outfits are available, and more than that an absolute ton of accessories for the animals - including a wide variety of doll houses for them to live in (ranging from teeny-tiny rose-covered cottages to large multi-bedroom mansions - all with appropriate furniture), and vehicles such as cars, canal barges, and even a gypsy-style caravan. What all these toys have in common is that they don't come cheap; although marketed ostensibly for age four and up children (the tiny bits and bobs they come with constitute a definite choking hazard) I think the real target group at whom these figures are aimed is adult dolls house enthusiasts (have a look around on the internet where you'll find there are all sorts of fan-sites set up by Sylvanian Families fanciers). The rabbit figures are no exception to this 'expensive product' rule, selling at around £15 for the family of four - although you can often find a few quid off certain sets on Ebay and Amazon and so on. In appearance they're dark-eyed, white-furred rabbits with 'chocolate point' brown ears - like a Siamese cat, and form a very pretty group. The mum comes wearing a pink, full-skirted, full-length dress with pinafore (one of the old-fashioned outfits which I'd say was something along the lines of what you might find expect Scarlett O'Hara to be lounging about in as casual dress at a time when she's safe at home in no danger of being visited by any gennl'man callers) and the little girl bunny is similarly kitted out in a red floral long dress. The dad and brother have (removable) check shirts and trousers combos (complete with aperture for the fluffy tail to poke out). The clothes are all made of proper (fairly) high-grade fabric (polycotton, but not bad for all that) - with sewn joins and hems, no less - and the detailing, especially considering that these are basically mass-produced toys is fantastic - from the ribbon bow and trim sewn on the front of mummy rabbit's dress, to the teeny-tiny Velcro fastenings that secure the male rabbits' trousers shut. I do wonder about the potential for.....basically foreign sprogs working in sweat-shops abroad, doing all the piece-work for this stuff - but I can't really comment on this as I don't know where the various components for Sylvanian Families toys are made. As toys, my daughter went through a brief phase of being very keen on these creatures, and still plays with the figures occasionally. The big drawback they have in this respect is that they are in no way very robust for being actually played with by young children; the 'velveteen' stuff they're covered with wears off / rips off in patches quite easily, and the 'fur' - especially for white-coloured animals like these bunnies - readily picks up stains and general grubbiness too, so your chocolate rabbits soon begin to look pretty scruffy. (There are tips on the various internet forums for cleaning your Sylvanian Family figures but these are for spot-cleaning only - not total overhauls like ours need.) If you're buying these for your kids to play with, I'd suggest gently steering them towards selecting an animal that comes in any colour other than white. These are attractive little toys for a dolls' house type collection and expensive, but a nice range of figures in general.

        -

        When I was a kid, back in the 80's , I was deeply envious of my friend Gypsy's Sylvanian Families collection . I must have nagged my mum loads for some of the toys in this range, but never recieved any :( Now, many years on, I have a daughter, and I will admit to occasionally buying toys for her that I want to play with - which is how she came into possession of this Chocolate Rabbit Family - four cute little rabbits in smart outfits. There's mummy rabbit, daddy rabbit, and a girl and boy rabbit . Each rabbit is a lovely slightly furry texture, with cream coloured fur and chocolate point ears, big staring black eyes and just the slightest little hint of a smile . The boy rabbits have pale brown noses, while the girls noses are pale pink. Each rabbit has it's own little costume - the ladies in pretty floral dresses, with mummy wearing an apron. The males have smart trousers and shirts, with the dad wearing a spiffy mustard coloured waistcoat with smart red buttons . Part of the joy of buying the family is that they come with a story - they are a family of chocolatiers , with Frasier (the dad) making lovely chocolates which his wife Teri making the delicious fillings - strawberry surprise being the best . The son, Coco, isn't allowed to help make the chocolate as he eats too much, so instead works as the delivery boy, while his sister, Freya, helps their mother in the kitchen preparing the fillings . Of course, whilst the story is all very nice, it helps to have the house for them to work from - and this is where Sylvanian Families becomes expensive . What good is a chocolate making rabbit family without a shop ! Luckily, you can buy shops (and additional families) but it could become an expensive family . Our chocolate making bunnies operate out of a garage forecourt, because much as I love this range of toys, they are expensive, so the family has become combined with other toys for imaginative play . My daughter tends not to stick to the chocolate making backstory either- with her, daddy is the garage owner, whilst mummy works the pumps, and the kids act as customers. She does enjoy these toys, and they are great for allowing young children to act out situations . The family cost a little under £15 from amazon, which I suppose is a little pricey for what they are, but then I suppose you are paying for the brand! 4 stars - one off for the range in general being pricey .

          Another wonderful Sylvanian Family set

          We bought a set of gorgeous little Sylvanian Families Chocolate Rabbits as a gift for a child who is mad keen on anything from the Sylvanian Family brand. As the owner of the lovely Sylvanian tree house and several little groups of animals to go with it, we knew she wanted some of the cute rabbits from the range. ********************************************************** We were lucky enough to find them at Argoos and they were priced at £14.69 for a cute and cuddly family of 4 lovable bunnies. I have also seen them for sale in major toy shops and also at online stores, but price wise they do seem to be fairly set and static at the price we paid. A good tip for anyone who has a child with a liking for the Sylvanian range, is to check out your local car boot sales, as very often you can pick up bits and pieces very cheaply. ********************************************************** The Chocolate Rabbit Family are so very cute to look at, that you can easily see why kids fall for them. They are just the right size for small hands to grasp and play with. They also encourage role play, as children tend to make up little conversations and personas for each little rabbit. The Bunnies are a little chocci making family! Hence the cute little chocolate coloured tips of their ears. The daddy bunny, Frasier, has been creating chocs since he was a lad. Mummy bunny, makes fillings for all the chocs, little sis Freya, helps mum in making the fillings and her brother, Coco, delivers the chocs as he eats far too many if allowed to join in with the making. ********************************************************** The above description is a nice little ready made story about each family member, the concept of this is very sweet indeed, but we found that different names were soon made up for the bunnies. Daddy bunny was all too quickly named Derek and several attempts at trying to persuade his owner that he wasn't a Derek at all, were wasted. Still he is a much loved little chap and he and his family do still make chocolate in the eyes of their happy owner. Other wise.. 'how would they have gotten all that chocolate on their ears silly!' ********************************************************** The bunnies are each dressed in co-ordinating outfits, with a red white and lemon yellow theme to them. Derek has a smart lemon yellow checked shirt and red trousers, mummy has a pretty dress and spotty apron to protect her from spills during all the cooking she does. The two kids are dressed similarly to their parents and look very cute indeed. The bunnies all seem to be well made and have lasted well with lots of hours of play, the fur effect which they all have has only rubbed off on them around the tips of their pointy ears. Other than that they have coped well with being much loved toys. I think the range of products/ toys made under the Sylvanian brand are lovely for younger children, as they encourage children to think for themselves. ********************************************************** They also encourage children to make up little stories and interactions between different groups and families in the Sylvanian world, which can be of help in the real world too. After all if a child can help their toys to get along with each other, it can teach a them how to get along with other children within their social circle. We have already had a request from the happy owner of the Chocolate Rabbit Family for a set of cute hedgehog babies, which we have put away ready for her birthday. These bunnies are such a lovely little set that they can have no less a rating then 5 stars. Their owner loves them and I can see why. ********************************************************** NB: toys suitable for ages 4 and upwards due to small parts.
