“ Brand: Sylvanian Families / Type: Doll „
My granddaughter is five and loves Sylvanian Families. My own daughter used to play with them when she was little and now my granddaughter is beginning to collect them. It is lovely to see her playing with them and I know they are very good quality so will last a long time and be well loved. The latest addition to her families are these mice.
I bought her this set from a local toy shop. They are £15.99 there although you may be able to get them slightly cheaper elsewhere. It is a lot of money to pay for just four figures that are not very big at all but that seems to be the cost of Sylvanian's- they are always so much more expensive than you would expect but they are very good quality.
In the pack there are four figures; a mummy, daddy, little girl and little boy. They are white mice and have a slightly fuzzy feel to them. They come with clothes which can be removed. These have tiny details on them like buttons which are no more than 2.5mm and little spaces for their tails. The level of detail is brilliant.
My granddaughter likes to take their clothes on and off and they have remained really well in tact despite being constantly fiddled with- no threads coming off or hanging off buttons as of yet!
Their heads move a little and their arms and legs can move so they can sit down and things.
They are very sweet and so I can see why they are so appealing. They are the perfect size for all of the other things you can buy with this brand so they will fit in their beds or chairs and so forth.
The only thing I can criticise about this is the price. It is such a lot of money to pay just for the figures alone. Any child with this set would be looking at getting other items too and so before you know it you have spent a fortune. They are very good quality and the level of detail is lovely but sometimes I think the prices of Sylvanian Families is a little steep.
