A couple of weeks ago, I agreed to host a Twitter Party for Sylvanian Families. There have been some blog posts around lately questioning whether these types of marketing event are a good idea, but as I'd already agreed to give it a go it's full steam ahead here and tomorrow is the day!
Sylvanian Families are really loved in this house by both girls, which is largely why I agreed to host a party. It's a brand which I'm happy to support because as a previous toy buyer myself, I know the products are excellent quality and well thought out - the girls have spent many happy hours role-playing with them. They already have a few bits, and are now over-excited at the thought of adding to their collection. The big box which arrived did whip them up into a frenzy, although to be honest it wasn't full to bursting so their expectations are maybe set a little higher than I would have liked....! I'm hiding the surprises a little in this photo....
I think it'll be great fun, although as per usual I am now wondering whether I've overstretched myself, on a school night mid-week, when we seem to suddenly have a lot of extra things going on. It's busier than Christmas round here!
Anyhow we are wisely keeping it fairly 'small', with just a few girls coming to share in the fun. There are going to be timed games and competitions, and a Sylvanian themed tea party, so I'm hoping to have grown an extra 4 arms overnight.
Tune in to Twitter tomorrow afternoon from 4pm to find out more! You can follow me on @stephc007 (or click the button at top right of my blog!).
