Sylvanian Families Campervan - Features and review

Updated on November 6, 2014

What are Sylvanian Families?

Sylvanian families are gorgeous lovable little animal characters that make there home in the land of Sylvania. You can build your own very own Sylvania with the fantastic range of homes, play-sets and accessories that are available. All are beautifully designed with great attention to detail.

Having grown up with Sylvanian Families in my life I am so excited that I now get to share this my own daughters. And the Sylvanian Families Campervan is high on my eldest's Christmas list this year.

Features of the Sylvanian Families Campervan

The Sylvanian Families Campervan is new for 2012 and tipped to be a must have this Christmas. In looks it mirrors the classic VW camper with the iconic rounded edges and is light blue with a white roof. The designers have out done themselves by adding floral to decorate and a silver bumper and grill complete the look.

As is typical with all Sylvanian play-sets the Campervan leaves no stone un-turned with it's list of features and included accessories. The whole thing is beautifully put together and sends me straight back to childhood as soon as I see it.

When the campervan is closed up there is room on the roof for bikes and the canoe. These are sold separately but make a great addition. The downside to all the extras is that they do get lot easily and are very small so definitely not suitable for younger children.

Contained in the campervan you will find 2 pull down beds with sleeping bags, a kitchen complete with a sink, cooker and cupboards and fold out table and seats. But what set this apart from other play-sets of it kind are the additional features.

The campervan comes fully stocked with:

- crockery

- cooking utensils

- Soap and sponge (heart shaped of course)

- Spray bottle

- Bread, bread board and bread knife

- Salt and pepper pots

- Kettle

- Teapot

- Kitchen draws

- Board games

- And even an air freshener

Amazon is a great place to buy Sylvanian Families Campervan if you are in the UK.

Another great place to buy is Argos although they are slightly more expensive as they don't offer the discount.

Quick review of the Sylvanian Families Camper

In keeping with all Sylvanian Families sets the camper is wonderful designed with all the bases covered. Setting the Sylvanians up for the perfect camping trip. However as i said earlier the extras are very small so easily lost and this can lead to heartbreak if your children are anything like mine.

It is beautiful to look at and great fun to play with but extras, such as a family or canoe etc, can soon mount up and if you are not careful you could easily spend double the price.

Where to buy Calico critters in the US

Unfortunately the Sylvanian Families (otherwise known as Calico critters) Campervan is not currently available in the US. However there are a few camping related sets that are equally brilliant.

      I never had these as a child although I've heard of them. I don't have kids so won't be purchasing any, but I like your lens!
