Sylvanian Families

Ok. It's taken a while to sort and photograph these and I figured out that one family (Babblebrook) is still in the original house. But here are my critters as requested/promised. :-)

This post is solely focused on the original Sylvanian Families that I started collecting as a child in the 1980's. I will do another post for the modern Calico Critters.

There is a bottle of tacky glue as scale, but the tallest individuals (adult bears) are 3 and 3/4" tall. Mrs. Treefellow is less than 2" tall, so it really depends on the species. I will give measurements of the Calicos in their post.

The Chestnut Family
The Evergreen Family
Mrs. Hoppinset (US) or Corntop (UK) - still looking for the rest of her family
The Huntington Family - missing grandparents
The Slydale Family (original)
The Solitaire Cat Wedding set, missing the ring bearer - (UK release only)
Sweetwater Wedding set
The Thistlethorn Family
Mrs. Treefellow - still looking for the rest of her family
The Timbertop Family- missing grandmother

The Waters Family
The Wildwood Family- older brother and sister were released, but only in Japan... I have the American set, minus the grandparents
The Windward Wedding set

Obviously these figures aren't in as good of condition as their Calico Critter counterparts. I played with these toys constantly. They are well loved. :-)

They are so cute and you have quite a collection!!! The only thing I've ever collected was elephants and they're not near as huggable :) -Ara

What a wonderful collection, MiniKat. I think my favorite is Mrs. Treefellow, because of my obsession with owls. Very cute!
