Sylvanian Families are an adorable range of distinctive animal characters with charming and beautiful homes, furniture and accessories. They live, work and play in the idyllic and wonderful land of Sylvania.
“Oh fresh fish and chips!” are the cries from the beach when the fish n' chip van pulls up, and then there’s even more squeals of delight when the customer realises that there’s mushy peas too! Finley Osborne has always owned the fish and chip van and love to serve the freshest fish in all of Sylvania.

Those recipients were a 6 year old and her 9 year old sister, by the way. And it was the six year old's birthday as well. God, I feel so ashamed. Especially since I even went so far as to give it large with a few 'brrm, brrms' while helping Finley Osborne to manoeuvre his van out of my two young (former) friends' reach... .
This is simply brilliant for inspiring some really worthwhile creative play. And I am reliably informed that, after I was invited to leave the premises by their somewhat irate mother, my two little relatives were completely inspired by it too.
It is beautifully made and comes with everything but a jar of pickled eggs. The 8cm high Mr Osborne is very cute indeed and, what's more, he has a brilliant business brain. Not content with simply flogging his wares from his van and then hotfooting it to his next location, Mr Osborne comes fully equipped with a table and two chairs that can all be unfolded for the comfort and convenience of his customers, at the drop of a Sylvanian hat.
His van is reassuringly heavy (and 'Made in Japan', apparently). I'm not quite sure why one whole side of it is missing but, if I ran any kind of mobile chip shop, I would probably need to come up with a similar arrangement in order to get myself in and out of the thing. I'd probably need a few firemen and one of these winches that they use to move elephants around as well. Finley Osborne looks remarkably svelte actually, given the myriad temptations he is surrounded by. He obviously has a tremendous amount of chip-related willpower.
There are a fair few sticky labels that need to be applied to the van and its contents, but these are all number-coded, their destinies very clearly detailed in a series of diagrams on the lid of the box. Some of them are a bit fiddly, but you can always get someone with smaller fingers (oh, say... a six year old and a nine year old) to take care of all that for you while you get Finley Osborne to show you how he gets his chips so crispy.
No? Oh well, that must just be me then.
The food items and assorted accoutrements have been very well designed. Crinkle cut chips, trays, mushy peas, ketchup, vinegar... you can almost smell it all! The two bits of fish look suspiciously 'fish-shaped' to me though, suggesting that Finley Osborne, far from having a supplier snapping up the catch of the day at Billingsgate Market, may have been buying his stock in the kids' meal department at the Sylvanian Cash and Carry. Still, he has found a way to get around Health and Safety rules by wrapping his nosh up in newspaper, so fair play to him.
Speaking as an adult (well, in body at least), this is a fabulous toy in its own right - never mind what it brings to the community of Sylvania.
It came with everything a fish and chip shop needs,very very good!!!
I would recommend this to everyone who loves Sylvanians.
As with most Sylvanian Families toys, you don't get all the characters pictured on the box. You get one character with this toy - the owner of the fish and chip van!
The van comes with lots of pieces such as fish, chips, ketchup, chairs and much more (there is a full list above in the Amazon product description so I won't list it all here!...). Some of these pieces are REALLY small - so worth just being cautious if there are younger siblings around in terms of both swallowing bits and losing bits.
The van is well made and seems strong enough for lots of play. My daughter combines it with other Sylvanian Families sets and also with some of her Playmobil sets - so she spends hours using her imagination and setting up different scenarios.
