posticon Hello from Florida Gulfcoast


My name is Janelle; I'm 30 [sign in to see URL] have collected Sylvanians ever since I was a little girl... My parents flew for a living and when they went overseas- they would go to the Sylvanian shop and bring me back little things! I had the big red roof house and some bears, raccoons, mice and a bunch of rabbits (i guess my parents figured the rabbits would have lots of children-lol) ...and maple town foxes.

I never knew about all of the other things they had made until about 5 years ago. I went home, and all of my toys had been in the attic. It was a really hot summer that year- and I decided to go up there and pull some toys down since I was worried they could be damaged. Well, it was a good thing I did. Some of my mom's older barbies had been chewed by chipmunks that got up there- and my brother's ninja turtles had started to melt-

I found my Sylvanians and house in a big cardboard box and took them all out again- realizing they were missing things or stuff was broken... I found my little beaver son who had been chewed up pretty badly by our toy poodle too- but I never could throw him away.

Now, after my brother's TMNT collection- which was huge--had started melting i laid them all out on newspaper to dry (it took several days for the plastic to reharden) I sorted them and showed him as a [sign in to see URL] was happy I saved them- we had collected them together growing up (they r sortof like Sylvanians with more weapons) lol

Then I showed him my Sylvanians I'd rescued from the attic and he was like, "Your collection sucks" and I was like- HEY- seriously?

Then I went to Ebay- and the madness began. First came the little treehouse, then my boyfriend got me the giant treehouse for Christmas- and I just ...started having way too much fun getting and displaying these little guys. Vintage stuff is my favorite- it really matches my original toys well. I love the classic red & tan. I also enjoy other flocked sets like Maple Town and Forest Families which I never knew about before. I like making scenes to photograph too.

So before this I thought I was being weird... I thought, well.. I will have a little girl one day and she will think this is [sign in to see URL] we live in an age of collectors, I guess- so it turns out that it's cool. lol

I've referred to this messageboard over the last couple of years for certain items, but having actually taken the time to read some of the recent topics like: "Why Do I Keep Buying Sylvanians???" (LoL) -I've realized that I guess I have a lot more in common with you guys than I would've thought before. That's pretty cool to know there are others like me out there. So now I see this place is much more than a place to simply exchange information about collecting Sylvanian [sign in to see URL]'s fabulous & full of real-life Sylvanian friends!
