I bought this to go along with a Sylvanian Families cottage for my 5yr old daughter, as the price for the official furniture is somewhat steep.
The set comes as 4 3mm x 235mm x 375mm sheets of plywood and each furniture component is of the push out type. Supplied was the worlds smallest square of sandpaper to smooth away any sharp edges and these were few and far between.
The instructions were "sparse" to put it mildly...each part is drawn on a plan matching those on the plywood and numbered...if two pieces have the same number, then they fit together basically.
The way in which the furniture was designed to fit together was a brilliant idea in my opinion...all push fit and almost every piece can be put together without the need for glue.
I would so far as to say that they could be used as toys, with a little care. I doubt they'd last very long with prolonged periods of being thrown about and certainly would not survive being stamped on by size 6 feet, although, how many of todays toys would? :P
Most of the parts fit together perfectly, but I think I'll be taking my dremel to some of them over the coming days to "tweak" a few bits...all the more fun for me :)
All in all, I would buy again without reservation. As a rough guide to the size of the furniture, each piece looks to be in proportion with each other and I measured the double bed at 87mm L x 75mm W x 48mm H (at the top of the headboard) in case anyone wondered.
