My daughters (3 and 5) have really enjoyed this. I bought it on a whim when I was sent an e-mail about a really good price and thought it would be good to have something new to play with for the (long) summer holidays! I like the fact that it can be paddling pool or sandpit. Unfortunately one of the very tiny bits of the sandcastle is already lost, hence a lowish score for durability ... I have put the rest away as they don't make a huge difference to play. The Sylvanian babies are happy to have a playground!
Great little set for the baby sylvanian animals. One side is a sand pit, complete with tiny little scoops of sand to create turrets on the separate sandcastle (these may get glued on!), then lift the slide and flip the sandpit over to play with the paddling pool (babies fit into the swim ring). Even comes with little curved bench for the babies to sit on, and sand & pool toys.
This was another Christmas present for my granddaughter. She loves anything to do with Sylvanian families and she loves the fact that you can have it as a sand pit or turn it over and have it as a paddling pool. Her mummy took the small parts away until she is a bit older but it has made no difference to her pleasure.
another great product from this range - my 6 year old daughter loved it and added it to her collection with glee. she has had many happy hours playing with it. As with all their products it is good quality, be careful not to loose the very small sand piles that come with it! Not over priced.
Bought a selection of the Sylvanian Families to make up a Christmas present for my grand-daughter ....... she was not dissappointed! Tiny parts which will not be suitable for very young children, these sort of toys make them use their imagination, my grand-daughter is 7yrs!
Its nice that this toy doubles as a sandpit and paddling pool. Contains very tiny pieces which will undoubtedly go missing but my daughter seems to like it. She especially likes the little chair that comes with the set. It is a little pricey for what it is though. Very sturdy though and the slide is nice.
