Sylvanian families are a collection of small, plastic and fabric toy animals that have human characteristics. In a family there is usually a mum, a dad, 2 siblings and 2 babies, though these do vary. The animals include cats, dogs, otters, frogs, and others. They wear clothes and live in houses that seem to be early from 20th century england. Typically collected by 4-11 year olds, though you do get collectors who are a lot older.
even though im 16, i still love my Sylvanian families because of the old English atmosphere and the depiction of a perfect family life...
