Sylvanian Family Campervan review.

It was like Christmas had come early in our house when Tamsin broke open the bag containing the Sylvanian Families Campervan from Flair.

Tamsin's grin was almost as big as the box as she began unpacking all the pieces!

The Ginger Cat Family arrived at the same time for us to review, and so they were immediately sent on their holidays, enjoying a light lunch in the camper van:

Tamsin absolutely loved this toy, and I'm sure any child (or adult collector!) receiving it would be thrilled. So much attention to detail, from the stickers to decorate down to the tiny bar of soap to go in the sink (cute!) provides endless hours of role play and fun. There are over 30 pieces in the box; as with all packaging though, you have to read carefully about what is and isn't included - Tamsin was a bit miffed that the toilet shown on the outside of the box wasn't there! Having said that, there really was plenty in the box to start playing with, and at £39.99 retail I do think this is a great value for money item. It is worth noting however that the characters are not included, and an average set of those retails at around £11.

Sylvanian Families is celebrating 25 years - although to me, it seems as if they have been around a lot longer. We've managed to amass a fair collection ourselves over the past couple of years, and I feel sure they are toys which will be staying around for quite some time. Top marks to Flair!

If you're interested in reading more, head on over to where there's lots more reviews and great advice.

We were sent the above toy for the purpose of this review, but have not received payment. All the views expressed here are our own.


  1. We have that too and it's great- but note the product comes without the characters which are not cheap ;)

    1. good point. Had forgotten to mention that as we received a set of characters - away to edit now...


Go on, leave me a message, make my day! I love hearing from other people...
