How my collection started 13 and a half years ago...
Updated: Aug 21
Hi everyone! This is my first ever blog - soooo exciting! So, you may already know me from my YouTube channel or other social media, but if not, let me introduce myself: My name is Amy, I'm 17 years old, and I love Sylvanian Families! Actually, love is an understatement, I'm obsessed! Who could resist their cute little faces?
Well, obviously, not me. It all started at Christmas 2007 when I was 3 years old. My parents wanted me to have a dollhouse but little did they know that in the years to come I would not only have one dollhouse, but a room full of dollhouses! It was love at first sight when finally the mysterious cover in the living room was revealed to be concealing the most beautiful dollhouse - no, doll mansion - I had ever seen: the Sylvanian Families Grand Hotel.
The first families to check in were the Hawthorn Mice, the Kennelworth Dalmatians and the Keats Cream Cats. And, of course, they arrived in style in the Sylvanian Wedding Car. But luckily, the hotel was already staffed with the finest professionals of the village: Mr Cheshire, the butler, Mrs Basset, the housekeeper, Basil Hazelwood, Sylvania's most talented chef, Suzette Grey, the waitress, and, for entertainment, Grace Cheshire & Kelly Basset. Every evening after a scrumptious dinner, the ballroom is filled with beautiful music. The gentle tinkling of the piano keys by Mr Basset accompanied by the soothing voice of Mrs Cheshire.
My Sylvanian Village was founded and the first residents had settled in. The hobby that would change my life had begun.
