My Sylvanian Families Display by angelberries My Sylvanian Families Display by angelberries
Its finally done! In fact, it took so long, theres a heck of a lot of dusting to do!! Wahhh!!

Anyway, the buildings are as follows - top left, Brambles Department Store, with stackable cottage on top. The pizza shop is located in the bottom of the cottage, along with the gift shop. The Japanese girls live in the top apartment, they make traditional Kimonos for the other Sylvanians. In a classic Japanese way, all three of them are living in that tiny space!!

Bottom left - Kindergarden.

Middle - Willow Hall and extension. The Renard family live there.

right - double mansion. Naturally the Kitsunes (my favourite family!) live there. They also own the department store.

Figures are far too many to mention, but thats only about half of what I own. Can't cram anymore on!! Theres are the Renards, Slydales, Kitsunes, Wildflowers, Sheep, Cottontails, Fisher cats, Whisker cats, rabbits... and loads more!

The base is made from MDF, propped up by two boxes. I used railway 'grass' and chippings to make the scenery, along with a whole bunch of trees, and some mini pots I got from a florists. There are a handful of non Sylvanian Items here, but I'd say a 90% portion is the real deal!

I loved these things when I was younger, but when we renovated the house I lost them. They're cute nonetheless though~

I want them! In Japan there are two Sylvanian Families restaurant & a BIG store. I wish I had that many. :D
Floppy-Doggie Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2008
i think sylvanian families are called 'calico critters' in america i dont know why though;p
angelacapel Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2008  Professional General Artist
There was a legal battle that made america not permitted to use the name "sylvanian families" after like the mid 80's or so. Japan and UK still call them Sylvanians though.
Floppy-Doggie Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2008
Lol i have over 70 sylvanians! nice collection:D
SylvanianValley Featured By Owner May 17, 2008
hiya i'm new to deviantart ^_^ i collect sylvanian families too! i don't have as many as you seem to have though :( i've got 75 figures ;-)
artziddy11 Featured By Owner May 7, 2008
oh gosh!! this is amazing~
i'm going to start collecting now.
it's always my childhood dream to have all this...
how much have you invest into this actually??
angelberries Featured By Owner May 15, 2008  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Phew..... I couldn't actually put a price on that. Families are £12.99, babes £4.99.... the building in the middle was £50, the one in the corner £60 and the nursery £30, plus the loads of extra sets..... I've bought loads secondhand too, but really, this must run into hundreds of pounds, not including what isn't displayed. I've never thought of it like this before!

XD Looks like you have all the families and houses/shops I dont have!! Great to see someone else who collects them :hug:

angelberries Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2007  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Awww.... I love my sylvanians. Wish I could display them all the time!
backwardsman Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2006
I want them all eeep:)
angelberries Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2006  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Its hard dusting so many!! I took it down in the end. ^^
backwardsman Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2006
Ill dust them for you:D
angelberries Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2006  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I'd take you up on that, only i get the feeling you'd spend more time playing with them!
backwardsman Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2006
haha true:) After seeing this i really wanted to go buy some. I had a look but I couldnt find any anywhere:(
angelberries Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2006  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I don't think many are sold in Australia - ebay is your best bet. In the US, they are sold as Calico Critters.
backwardsman Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2006
Yeah they were when I was younger. Because I had quite a few. But then they stopped selling them in toy stores because of so many complaints.
lil1rock7chick Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2008
Wow they still sell them In Ireland LOTS of them infact! just bought some the other day! :D
