When I was a child, I remember playing with Sylvanian Families when they first came out onto the market. Sylvanian Families are celebrating their 30th birthday which made me a great age the first time around to appreciate them. When Sylvanian Families first came out there was one house with eleven pieces of furniture and nine different families. Thirty years later the brand has grown immensely and there is so much choice in the Sylvanian world.
I couldn’t wait until I thought Miss A was old enough to appreciate Sylvanian Families, we have been very slowly collecting pieces over the last year or so. Very recently, the Corgi Family have come to stay with us, joining in on some of the activities our chocolate Labrador family get up to.
Duke and Queenie de Pembroke are parents to Earl and Duchess the children. Duke is charming but has a tendency to put his foot in things, and Queen rules the roost.
Earl is a little cheeky and his Mum likes to keep an eye on his to make sure he doesn’t get into trouble, whilst Duchess is good at everything and liked by everyone.
I was looking forward to see how they would get on when they realised some of the other children in the village were camping during one Summer’s evening over at the chocolate Labrador’s home.
Duke and Queenie dropped Earl and Duchess off early in the evening, and it didn’t take Earl very long to run off and hide before his parents had said their goodbyes. Duchess of course was very polite and made sure her parents were happy before she went to meet the other children.
Charles and Camilla Hunter Smythe the Labradors were pleased to have new friends to visit, and they had also invited Freya Chocolate to stay. Their own son, Hector likes to spend as much time as he can with his Dad and gets up very early every morning so he missed chatting with the others over breakfast the next morning, but Isabella was in her element as she likes nothing more than inviting people over for sleepovers. To be able to sleep in the tent was an added bonus.
It seems the Corgi family will fit in very nice in their new home with us, and we hope to welcome many new families in time to come. In more recent months the Cow family have also moved in.
Miss A is very happy to be a Friend of Sylvanian Families as am I, as I don’t think you can ever be too old for Sylvanian Families.
