posticon Hello fellow Sylvanian fans


Hello everyone!

I’m an adult collector from Australia and I’ve been meaning to join this forum since I found out about it not long ago. My friends think I’m crazy for being “obsessed with toys” so it’s good to know that there are people who understand the passion!

Back in the 80s my favourite thing to do was to play with my Wildwood rabbit family, then a few years ago I went to Japan and discovered Sylvanian Families again. Although I told myself that I would buy just a couple of figures I have ended up with over a thousand.

I recently returned from Japan where I made the trek to the Sylvanian Village at Grinpa. The museum and store knocked my socks off, it was such a surreal experience!

Hi Chocbunnycake!
 I'm an adult collector, too! I'm male and I really love toys!-played with legos, playmobils and Disney figures when young- (but I still play.. emoticon ). I started sylvanians for my daughter but seems that I stuck more! And even more since I joined the forum! I really like to take photos of them!
So welcome to the board! I'm hoping for some photos of your BIG collection and from your
visit to Grinpa!

Haha. It sounds like you're in the right place if you told yourself you were only buy a couple figures and now have over a thousand. Many of us have probably said that to ourselves about these cute critters. They ARE very addicting.

I hope I get the chance to go to Japan one day so I can take my granddaughter to Grinpa. But living in the US and being married to a man that won't fly- it's probably unlikely. The only time in 25 years I've been on a plane was in 2006 when I chaperoned my daughter and a group of cheerleaders to the Pro Bowl.

Welcome to the forum, I'm sure you'll love it. Post some pics when you have a chance or let us know if you have a website or blog.

Re: Hello fellow Sylvanian fans


Thank you for the warm welcome emoticon

Francesca, that was a cool ‘hello’ card! Thanks so much!

Sylvanako, I just had a look at you Flickr photos and they are amazing, they look like the professional photos in the catalogues! At the moment most of my collection is hidden in cupboards because my boyfriend complains that Sylvanians are taking over the house but one day I hope to have room to set up a Sylvanian village display! I will definitely post photos of it emoticon

Crandj, you never know, you might get to Grinpa one day. It was just a dream until I made it there!
I’ll put some Grinpa photos up once I get time to sit down and figure out how to use Flickr or something similar…

Hello and welcome! emoticon

I'm also an adult collector but I started when I was a child in the 80's. Now I have over a thousand critters, too!

One of the things on my bucket list is visit the Grinpa park in Japan. I think it will happen in a year or two. emoticon

Welcome! I, too, am an adult collector of Calico Critters. I only discovered them last year, although I think I would have had an amazing time with them when I was younger. I'm not ashamed to say that I do play with them now, though! Ha ha!
