Re: Cardboard house


I purchased my carrot house from a now out of business toy store called Children's palace in the late 80's. I don't think it was out for long.

Re: Cardboard house


it never appeared in any uk catologs, i never saw it in gamleys, toys r us or woolworths.
im sure someone else told me that they got their's at a uk market as well. it was weird to see sylvanians at a market as markets just had cheap things and most of the toys were poorly made, u wouldnt get branded goods.

Re: Cardboard house


I think the Carrot House was introduced in the US for a short while but wasn't popular. I remember seeing tons of them on shelves but I never picked one up for myself. I still don't own one since I don't find it appealing and it doesn't feel Sylvanian to me.

Re: Cardboard house


mmm?! i wonder if a wholesaler brought them up and then resold them in the uk? this would make sense?
