    Default Sylvanian families

    What's your opinion on them did your kids play with them or was it a fad. Thinking for dds 7th birthday but it's a lot of money. Would rather the real deal then the cheaper kmart version too.

    I think they are super duper mega cute.

    But sooo expensive. I would die inside if a playset piece went missing/ got broken.

    I think the kmart version is what i'll start getting for dd (for when she is older)

    We have a few families, the tree house and camper and the boat. I had no idea what my parents would get the 3 grand kids last Christmas so they bought the lot as a joint present. I bought it off one if those ozsale linked sale websites and it was pretty cheap but if you buy on sale you can get a good bargain.

    My 8 and 5 years play with it a lot. My 3 year old not so much.

    My sister had them as a kid. She grew out of it and mum sold them when we moved. She was devastated. I bought her the starter set again last year and she loves it. We add to it every birthday and Christmas.

    She may grow out of it, but it's something she most likely will come back to even as an adult.

    DD has a few families, the tree house, houses, caravan etc. Love them. She also has heaps of mine from when mine was little, so they certainly last and are good quality. I like them because she has played with them since she was 3 or 4 (she's 5 now) and will still last her plenty more years of play, I remember playing with mine until I was quite old.
    I tried to buy the bigger pieces when Myer have sales.

    Dd always would ask to play with them if we went to friends house that have them. Maybe I should just start with the starter house and 1 family? That almost halfs the cost as I was looking at the large sets.

    I remember when I was a little girl and they came out, they were a buy a magazine and get a piece type deal.
    I so badly wanted to collect them.
