Hi everyone, I thought i would update my blog with a comparison of some recent critters! :)
Recently I ended up buying my first Sylvanian family in over a year as a reward for getting through work! These rabbits are a limited edition and I actually unboxed them which is quite something as the last brand new one (from 2 years ago) is still in its box! The main reason for wanting to unbox them is to see what the new quality is like compared to some of the originals and I’m shocked at the difference in them.
Here are the Marguerite family, being welcomed of course by the Famous Breezy Babblebrook!
The flocking is very faint which means you can’t see their markings very well and you can also see right through it when the critters are standing in sunlight! This is very interesting as when the light shines through you can see they have a peach tinge to them and their markings actually show up! I have now realised that some of the older critters – Corntops and Snow-warrens are the same (after doing some just rabbit photos!)
They are also taller than the original critters from the Tomy and early Flair ranges and you can see this by my Babblebrooks standing next to them, especially the children and this is something that the later flair children are like as well but there’s a more pronounced difference within the last 5 years. You can also see this with the row of all the children. I much prefer the older original children.
Another sad thing about these new critters and for any brand new epoch families is that... they don't give them names or put their family bios on the boxes! That's one of the most saddest things as I love this part of the Flair boxes and one of the main reason I've kept the boxes! The only good thing about them is their clothing which is lovely and colourful.
While i was busy doing this comparison and bring down the Cottontails and Babblebrooks to do the photos with, i thought it would be a good idea to photograph all my rabbit families of which there are a Lot! I've got 10 families altogether, 1 random adult and 77 overall (quite a few of these are doubles!) ! 🙊🙈🙉 - The families are as follows from Left to Right - Marguerite's, Chocolates, Cottontails, Perriwinkles, Dappledawns, Buttergloves, Corntops, Snow-warrens, Babblebrooks and the Wildwoods...!!!
