Have you heard about the new Town? It’s the biggest product launch in 30 years, filled with exciting new products and characters such as Stella Chocolate, Freya’s older sister.
Stella is a fashion designer at the Designer Studio. This beautifully engraved building is where she draws out and creates all her beautiful designs, which she then sells to the other Town folk. The Studio comes with a comfy red chaise longue, tasty cup of tea and fruit tart, plus a Stella figure wearing an exclusive dress.
Getting around Town is easy, with the Ride Along Tram! This cherry-red tram has working wheels and doors, with detachable benches so you can have various seating arrangements. The cab can be turned into a ticket counter, with a ticket machine to place on top and map for your Sylvanians to navigate with. You can even combine the Tram with the Creamy Gelato Shop to serve ice cream on the move!
Head over to the Delicious Restaurant for the finest food in Town! The Chocolate Rabbit Father works as the head chef (sold separately) and creates an array of food in the fully equipped kitchen, including a beautiful three-tiered cake! There’s a fully laid out dinner table for two guests to enjoy, a reservations desk and chef’s outfit, including the iconic toque blanche hat.
Have you met the Maple Cat Family? Their fur gleams in the sunlight and you’ll often find them in the Town, where Theodore and Georgina both work. Theodore is the tram driver and could find his way around the Town blindfolded! He’s got a wonderful memory so often gives people directions and can always be found whistling a merry tune. Georgina owns the Creamy Gelato Shop and has quite the sweet tooth! She’s always whipping up new and interesting recipes, which she asks her family to test before they’re displayed in her shop, yummy!

Your Sylvanian babies will have the very best of fun with the new Nursery Series products. Why don’t you come and join them?
The Baby Castle Nursery is the cutest nursery you ever did see! The castle shape has candy floss pink turrets, making it perfect for playing princes and princesses in. What will you play on first? You can whoosh down the slide, touch the clouds on the swing or ride on the seesaw – just add the sunflower wheels to the bench to convert it. It can also be connected to the Baby Castle Playground or Baby Choo Choo Train, for even more exploring!
Hop on the Sunshine Nursery Bus, we’re off on an adventure! With a rainbow and musical theme, it has lots of special features to keep little ones entertained. You can fit up to 12 babies plus a driver onboard, or remove some of the seating to make extra room to play in. The rainbow chairs on the upper deck turn into a seesaw and there’s even a hidden paddling pool, for everyone to cool their paws in on a hot day.
*Choo choo!* All aboard the Baby Choo Choo Train! This fun train set really moves around the track, but don’t forget to stop at the railroad crossing gate. The Petite Bear Baby comes included so you can head off on a journey straight away.
The babies love to play princes and princesses with the Baby Castle Playground! Climb up the ladder to the top turret wearing your crown and then *whoooosh* all the way down again on the slide. It can also be stacked on top of the Baby Castle Nursery, to create a palace fit for royalty!

NEW Sylvanian Families Nature Trail launches at Hatchlands Park, National Trust, Surrey.
We’re excited to announce the launch of the Sylvanian Families Nature Trail at Hatchlands Park, National Trust. Open from 1st May 2015, the nature trail will give little conkers and grown oaks alike the chance to get outside and learn more about nature.
The perfect way to celebrate our 30th birthday this year, the Surrey-based trail involves a series of fun, Sylvanian-themed nature activities to give you a taste of the outdoors, and fill your lungs with fresh air!
Free to all National Trust visitors, or Hatchlands Park visitors, the Sylvanian Families Nature Trail leads families with young children through an area of recently planted woodland, prompting them to discover interesting facts about the surrounding wildlife and trees.
Armed with an activity sheet collected at the entrance to the park, budding young nature-goers can have fun spotting the familiar Sylvanian characters: Freya Chocolate Rabbit and Ralph Walnut Squirrel, who appear on specially designed signs along the trail. The signs provide questions to test children’s knowledge of nature, with the characters providing handy, rhyming clues! The answers to the questions can be found on the activity sheet alongside a picture to colour in, a maze to complete, and a spotting guide. There are also eye-catching wooden sculptures of Freya Chocolate Rabbit, Ralph Walnut Squirrel and Abigail Bramble Hedgehog dotted along the trail.
To celebrate, we’re also launching the #KnowMyNature Competition, which will see social media users face outdoor photo challenges and nature questions for a chance to win all manner of Sylvanian prizes.
National Trust Hatchlands Park, Parklands, open daily, from 10.30am to 6pm.
Entry price to the Parklands only (which includes free access to the Sylvanian Families Nature Trail): Adults £4.70, Children £2.30

We’ve just launched a shoal of Seaside-themed products in January 2015 - get ready to take your Sylvanians to the seaside!
Sylvanians love the woods and meadows, but they also like to explore – so we’re thrilled to say that there will soon be a whole new area of Sylvania - consisting of ‘Adventure Island’ and ‘Sea Breeze Cape’ - together they will make the most perfect seaside landscape for holiday family trips and all sorts of exciting adventures.
Obviously we already have the wonderful Seaside Restaurant– a popular haunt for family lunches – but now there is a whole range of additional products that you can collect to fit alongside this lovely eatery.
The key product in this range is the Seaside Cruiser House Boat – which includes a waterslide, dingy boat and small island! With 55 pieces including a figurine of Freya dressed in her smart ocean outfit, this ship is sure to make a splash!
For all those wannabe Explorers out there, there’s the brand new Adventure Treasure Ship – it doubles as a playground with a slide, swing, climbing net, viewing deck and even hidden treasure!
Pictured above is the Splash and Play Whale – this has a spinning feature at the top, and there’s even a mini whale swing, which looks as though it would be great fun. The Splash and Play Whale can cleverly sit on top of the Adventure Treasure Ship, creating an even bigger seaside playground!
There’s a special Seaside Camping Set, which comes with a floral tent and outdoor dressed Tiffany Silk Cat. There’s also a Seaside Birthday Party set, complete with birthday cake.
Many of these products are connectable to existing Sylvanian Families items, and the Seaside Cruiser House Boat connects to the Cosy Cottage, Seaside Restaurant and Forest Nursery. Meaning that you can have more fun than ever when you add these products to your Sylvanian World!
Happy seaside adventures!
Sylvanian Summer Photo Competition
In July and August last year we asked you to send us your best Sylvanian Summer snaps and we were amazed with the results!> Click here to read the full story
What Did Your Sylvanians Do Last Summer?
Last July and August we asked you to send us your best Sylvanian Summer snaps and we were amazed with the results!
Over last summer, we ran a competition asking fans to take photos of their Sylvanian Families in holiday themed settings – either at home or abroad – and upload them to our social media profiles, with the hashtag #SylvanianSummer.
Clearly you love taking pictures of your Sylvanians enjoying themselves, as we were inundated with over 450 entries to the competition! It was a tough job to whittle down all the wonderful photos to a shortlist, but when this was done, the selected images were sent to a distinguished panel of judges to pick the top three winners plus ten runners-up.
First prize (a £1,000 Forest Holiday!) went to a family from Guernsey - Lyndsey and Grant Dowinton and their daughter, Abigail who turned 4 on October 20. They took this cute photo of Abigail’s Sylvanians enjoying a family trip to the countryside - whilst they themselves were on holiday in the New Forest during the long hot summer.
Mum Lyndsey said “We were on a mission to spot ponies in the forest, but we’d also taken Abigail’s toys with us in case we came across a suitable sunny spot. I had the idea to take a photo of the Father Rabbit character taking his own family snap, so Abigail helped set them all up and Grant took the photo. It was a breezy day, so the characters kept falling over, but we managed it in the end!”
The Dowintons’ photo was picked as the overall winner and the family will enjoy a £1,000 Forest Holiday in one of nine locations across the UK (http://www.forestholidays.co.uk/).
Lyndsey commented, “Abigail’s grandparents gave her some Sylvanian Families last summer, and she has collected them ever since. She has a great imagination so she loves playing with the characters, especially the little babies… she makes up her own stories and scenarios for them. We’re absolutely thrilled we have won this prize!”
The second prize, which was a furnished Sylvanian Families Grand Hotel, went to Amelie Riberolle for this summery snap:
Third prize, which was a Sylvanian Families Cedar Terrace went to Rachael Scott for this 'berry' pretty picture!
There were also ten runners-up, who each received a Chocolate Rabbit Family set.
We run regular competitions on our social media platforms, so if you fancy winning some great prizes then check out Facebook/sylvanianfamiliesUK or Twitter @Sylvanian_UK.
