It’s every girl dream to own an awesome doll house. When I was kid, I didn’t have any, but oh how much I wanted to have one. So last Christmas, my husband and I decided to purchase a doll house by Sylvanian Families as a Christmas gift for our daughter.
As expected, our daughter loved it so much, we ended up playing until 2:00 in the morning after we gave it to her on Christmas Eve.
Here are the reasons why we love Sylvanian Dollhouse and why I think we will be starting our new collection.
Attention to Details
I love how intricate the details of the furniture are. Everything has been well thought of. One of the things that caught my attention is that even the sink has its drainage when I opened the cabinets.
Variety of Selection to Choose From
They have so many collectibles to choose from – from Supermarket, Ice Cream Shop, Bakery to Ballet Theatre. You can build an entire village if you have the space for it. They also have different Room Sets and House Furniture that you can purchase. They have Dining Area, Garden Set, Bathroom Set, Baby Room, Girl’s Room, Master’s Bedroom and even Vehicles.
Gadget Free Days
My daughter has been obsessed with her dollhouse for weeks she didn’t even have time to watch cartoons. All she wanted was to play and re arrange her little home. That had kept her busy for a while.
Real House Lights
I purchased the City House for my daughter – since it’s the classic one, and I guess you have to start with it prior to purchasing other houses. The house has two lights which are battery operated. It gives a good feel when you use it as a night light.
Since my daughter love small toys, she’s crazy about the Sylvanian Families. There are some room sets which offers one free figure if you purchase them. The house I purchased has two Walnut Squirrels. There are also a lot of Family Sets to choose from such as Poodle Family, Bear Family, Hedgehog Family, Kangaroo Family and many more.
Pretend Play is highly encourage since it let children use their imagination. Toys such as these will let your children and their playmates get into Imaginative Play and Role Playing. I sometimes watch my daughter put her little bunny friends to bed during night time so they can sleep.
My daughter loves to arrange the house furniture every now and then. What I love about this is it also enhances my daughter’s decision making skills and teaches her the right things to combine and to mix and match.
You can tell that Sylvanian sets are made to last and are very durable. Your next kid might be able to play with it if you took good care of it.
Getting to Know the Outside World
What I love most about Sylvanian Sets is it introduces new things to my daughter such as the different parts of the house, things we use every day, family members and even different kinds of businesses. It is like showing your kid a glimpse of the big world out there.
Getting to Know Your Child
While I watch my daughter play, I can somehow see how she would probably interact with the people around her. Normally she engage in conversation with her Bunnies or let them talk to each other. It also shows how we as parents talk to her, because I can sometimes hear her mimic how I converse with her.
Just in case you want start you’re Sylvanian Collection, these toys are available both in Toy Kingdom and Toys R Us. Your children and the child in you will definitely enjoy collecting.
