There’s something unexpected happening since Tara started school (She loves it by the way!) I did feel a bit sorry that her toys would start to become unloved and she wouldn’t be interested in them anymore, once she started school. I just don’t remember what it was like when M & V started but I was in the midst of newborn baby/pregnancy at the time. Our house hasn’t become a toy graveyard though – Happily she is enjoying her toys more than ever when she comes home. Its like she’s been stimulated and wants more than just plonking herself in front of the TV. Her creative side has really come out and it is fabulous to see.
It has been helped, though, by the arrival of a package from Sylvanian Families – I’ve talked before about how popular they are in our house. Even Millie got involved with this package – All photos below are taken by the resident 13 year old!
We are happy to announce that we are officially Friends of Sylvanian Families and will be working together over the coming months – The girls are delighted. I’ll be bringing you news of new Sylvanian Family products to celebrate Sylvanian turning 30 this year – They are lasting well!
We already have quite a selection of Sylvanian Families that I hope the girls continue to use – Our Sylvanian Grand Hotel is a great backdrop for all the newer products to mix into. Our newest members of the family are the Dappledown Rabbit Family – Did you know that each character has a back story and an introduction to their characters on the Sylvanian Families website? Too cute! You can also find out more about the characters in the new Sylvanian Families 2015 magazine.
Over the past couple of days I’ve been telling people about my Sylvanian Family (I’m just riveting company as you can imagine!) – I’ve been amazed by how many people with grown up children still have their Sylvanian collections in the loft. I love that they can’t bear to give them away – There’s must be whole villages of Sylvanian characters packed away with the promise of future grandchildren playing with them. Have you got any? (Sylvanians not grandchildren!)
And so there’s my news for today – There’ll be plenty coming up over the coming months. For now though, I leave you with a Bunny Eating a Bun. It’s all go in this house, I tell you!
