Last 2005, I got hooked with Sylvanian Families. I order from US, Japan and Malaysia to complete some other stuffs that are not available here. Super Addicted!!! But scrapbooking is more addicting. No more for my Sylvanian.... low demand and supply
My hubby also supports me buying some for me also. He said "they are really cute and look like real". Wow!!
This EMPTY deluxe house was a gift from my hubby. I was the one who bought the furnitures. "kung baga si Hubby ang nag-start and me lang ang nagpuno"
Sylvanian Families (シルバニアファミリー) is the name of a line of anthropomorphic collectible toy figures, created by JapaneseEpoch in 1985 and distributed worldwide by a number of companies. The characters, grouped into families, feature woodlandcreatures such as beavers, hedgehogs, mice and bears. They remain a quintessential part of the 1990s boom in craze (or fad) toys..
At the beginning of production, in 1985, Sylvanian Families were released in both Japan and North America, albeit with different packaging and minor differences to the characters themselves. In 1987, the success in these markets led to expansion into the UK and Ireland. By 1988, Sylvanian Families had become a major success around the world, spawning a spinoff animated series, and winning the British Association of Toy Retailers award for Toy of the Year three years consecutively, in 1987, 1988 and 1989. There was also a cartoon TV series shown in the 80s that was popular in Spain and England.
In 1993, Tomy, who had been distributing the toys worldwide, lost the rights to the name "Sylvanian Families" in Canada and the US. Tomy reintroduced the line under the new name Calico Critters.
