Review: Sylvanian Families Cat Family

I have mentioned before on this blog that Rosie and Alice are big fans of Sylvanian Families. We have quite a few sets of these now and she really does not get bored of them. They will sit for a long time, making each animal interact, chat and play. I really think imaginitive play, either with other kids or independently is a really great way to get the kids thinking about the world and the way we all interact and learn in the world around us. I love watching them play.



Rosie and Alice were delighted to receive a full family of cats from Sylvanian Families. The family of four cats are smartly dressed in floral dresses and striped tops and trousers, with little black beady eyes and large whiskers. We do love the attention to detail that goes in to every Sylvanian Family - there is even a space in the clothing of each cat at the back for their long tail to poke through! Their arms and legs are posable - as well as the tail!




We absolutely love this adorable family - it is a much loved part of our collection. The price of a cat family starts from around £12 and would make a lovely gift for a collector of Sylvanian Families. I know that Rosie and Alice absolutely adores their collection, as you can see from the photographs.

Disclosure: We were sent the Sylvanian cat family free of charge for the purpose of this review - all words and views are our own.

Review: Sylvanian Famillies Christmas Set

Rosie, aged 3 (very almost 4!) absolutely adores Sylvanian Famillies. Since we agreed to be involved in reviewing these toys, she is absolutely over the moon when the package lands on the mat. She really loves playing with them, either with Alice or alone. She is quite the independent player - when Alice is in school in the mornings she tends to potter about with her toys, dressing/undressing them, feeding them and putting them to bed. She names them and does their voices - it is really lovely to see her play.

We were recently sent the Sylvanian Families Christmas Set to try out. Needless to say, Rosie was more than willing to get involved.

The set includes rabbit in a Christmas dress, a snowman, a christmas tree with decorations and flat pack boxes to make presents, with stickers and accessories. This little set is a perfect Christmas scene - and one that can be played with over and over again. Sylvanian Families always have lots of attention to detail and this is something that Rosie definitely appreciates.

The Sylvanian Families Christmas Set price starts from £19.99 and would make an excellent present. If you would like to keep up to date with Sylvanian Families including details of their latest ranges do check out their Twitter page.
