Fish and Chip Van Review

I’m really sorry that I didn’t post much over Christmas, and I haven’t put up pictures of what I got yet.

I got the really cute Fish and Chips van. I love all of the stickers that came with this set (you have to apply most of these yourself). As always with Sylvanians, the attention to detail is great. There are many accessories, from tiny chips wrapped in newspaper to weeny little pots of mushy peas.


I wouldn’t recommend this toy for small children due to the size of some of the pieces, and it is quite fiddly too. I get frustrated when I knock it and everything falls off!


When you buy this, it doesn’t just come with a van and these little pieces, it also comes with a figure and a table and chairs. As you can see in the picture above, Finley Osbourne comes dressed in dark blue trousers, a stripy blue shirt, a white apron and a bright red bow tie. He can sit in the driver’s seat at the front, which means that your van can drive all over Sylvania. The steering wheel also turns which is another cute detail.

I hope you have enjoyed reading about the Fish and Chip van, and I think that overall it is a great set. Carry on reading my blog, as more stories are on their way…

Runner Up!

I’m very sorry that I haven’t posted for a long time, but I’ve just been too busy recently. Plus, I haven’t played with my Sylvanians properly for quite a while. But this week I received a mystery parcel… I was wondering what it might be, then suddenly I had a really good feeling. I opened it up and inside was a note to say that I was runner up for the last Sylvanian Collector’s Club colouring competition.


Unfortunately, my prize was the red panda family which I already have. I didn’t really know what to do with them so I just left them in their little box.


When I was in bed a brilliant idea came to me. I thought that if I just swapped their clothes with some of my other figures, then they could become extra members of the Robinson family!


I’m really glad that I can keep these furry little guys, and I’m also glad that the Robinsons now have the largest family in the village!

Now I just have the task of naming them. If you have any name ideas for a brother, a baby sister, a mother or a father then pleas leave a comment below 😛 I will update you if I come up with any names…

See ya!
