There are some toys which you know you will be playing with for years to come and will keep as an heirloom for your grandchildren. Sylvanian families is just such a toy. They are made to be treasured.
We were all delighted to be sent a Bluebell Seven Seater car and a cute little bunny family – the chocolate rabbit set. These go really well together. I love the fact you can make up your own characters and adventures for these toys – they are not dependent on a TV show. It is completely up to the children and their imagination.
The blue car is large and very robust. There are lots of details including a number plate and lights. The girls loved the fact the seats fold down and form a bed and also that the doors all open and shut.
There are also three baby seats which are really cute. This would be a great addition to any Sylvanian family fan’s collection. It also would fit with any of the toys you already own.
The chocolate rabbit family are really sweet. Each toy has removable clothes which have lots of pretty details on them. There is an old fashioned feel about the styling which is very charming. I like the fact that the children can play with these all together and it appeals to large age range of children. We all really loved this set and I definitely think it is worth the money.

Chocolate Rabbit Set, £15.99, Amazon and Toys R Us
