Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sylvanian Families Ice Cream Van (Toy)
I knew this didn't come with figures so purchased some separately (the ice cream sellers and a meerkat family), but it does seem pointless selling something like this without. If this is your only Sylvanian item, you will need to purchase some characters for it to have play value (tho small figures such as Polly Pocket/mini Lalaloopsy could reasonably use it).
There are lots of teeny tiny bits which so far we've managed to retain, there is a storage drawer in the van, but it falls out easily in the toybox so we store the its and bits in a plastic tub (an ice cream one obviously!). It requires a degree of nimble fingeredness and dexterity to handle the tinier parts.
Overall its a lovely concept and well made (Sylvannia products do seem to have excellent quality and detailing - the ice cream machine included is a very simple but effective design). My younger daughter 2.5 has played with it quite a bit, the older one 6 who received it as a gift has done less with it.
