Evelyn is just getting to that age where she wants to play with smaller toys and loves imaginative/ role play toys and so I thought now would be a great time to introduce her to her very first Sylvanian Families set!
We recently received the Sylvanian Families Hot Dog Van and it has been an immediate hit with Evelyn.
I love all the detail in this set right down to the little food items available from the van. Included in this set is the Hot Dog Van itself, a special shop manager uniform including a sun visor, a menu, a bottle of ketchup, a bottle of mustard, a cup of orange juice, a cup of tea, a serving tong, 8 dog wrappers, 6 snack wrappers, 3 sausages, 3 buns, 2 pretzels, 5 kinds of hot dogs, 2 waffles, a rabbit-shaped waffle and a squirrel-shaped waffle.
As you can see there is so much included in the kit and the attention to detail is incredible. The pieces are quite small so it would definitely be worth have a safe place to keep these when not being played with as it would be such a shame for them to be lost as they really finish of this set. Even the inside of the van is full of cute little details!
The Sylvanian Familes hot dog van feels strong and sturdy and has that same cute, quaint feel that flows through the whole Sylvanian families range. I really like that this toy doesn't require batteries and it really inspires kids to use their imagination and create play and stories with the set.
There was only one thing I could think of that would improve this set and that would be if it included a little Sylvanian Families character in with the set. As this was Evelyn's first set we didn't have any characters and so this is next on our list to buy but it would have been lovely to have one included as you never know which Sylvanian Families set will be your first!
If you are looking for a toy that will be played with for years and years to come and that will never really lose its charm then the Sylvanian families range is for you. This timeless classic toy is one I know Evelyn will be playing with for some time and thanks to the great quality I know it will stand the test of time and hours of play.
Do you own any Sylvanian Families sets? Which one is your favourite?
