Sylvanian Families Grocery Market Review

(Ad - Gifted) 
This Sylvanian Family set I am about to tell you about to tell you about I can see becoming one of Lily's favourite sets. 

We were sent the Sylvanian Families Grocery Market for Lily to test out and Lily is currently a huge fan of playing shopping so it is perfect for her. 

Lily was so excited when she saw that what it was on the front of the box, and shouted out "shopping". She also is a huge Sylvanian fan so was pleased to have a new set to add to her collection. 




The set comes unassembled in the box but doesn't take long to put together and you simply push the pieces together to make them fit. The longest part to setting up the set is putting on the stickers. The stickers really do add a nice element to it, but are very fiddly to do. I will admit, I hate putting stickers on as I can never manage to get them on perfect and unfortunetly when they are stuck down, they are very hard to take back off to re align and so you are stuck with it a little wonky. Luckily our kids don't seem to notice or even care about wonky stickers and so it isn't much of a problem. 



The set comes with a main house, which has opening doors. A check out till with working conveyor belt and some shelfs to place all the food on. It then comes with a really cute collection of food, fruits, and drinks. Even the little tins of sweetcorn have stickers so then you can tell exactly what they are.

It also comes with a tiny credit card and a shopping basket and bag. There are over 30 pieces in total so plenty of accessories to get creative with.


It probably took me about 30 mins total to set it all up. While I was setting up Lily enjoyed helping by placing all the food onto the shelves. When it is all set up it looks brilliant. Attention to detail is always great with Sylvanian sets. 




The set doesn't come with any Sylvanian Families, so Lily ran to go and get some of hers to play with. She chose one to be the shop keeper and then chose some more to be customers. 

She spent ages playing shopping with her new set. She would make one of the customers carry the shopping trolley and loved picking things from the shelf to make them buy. 

The thing I love the most about Sylvanian families is that it is brilliant for childrens imagination. I just love watching and listening to Lily act out what the Sylvanians are doing. 




This set works lovely with the rest of the sets we have, and all work together to make a lovely Sylvanian town. 

The sets are aimed at children over 3 years old due to there being a lot of small parts which cause a choking hazard. 

The set is £29.99 to buy and can be bought from Smyths Toy Store

Would your child enjoy this set?

  3. The set looks super but what a shame they didn't include a shopkeeper figure. The children really love the Sylvanian range. So well designed.

  8. Seems like a nice toy, to provide imaginative play opportunities. As children are likely to encounter markets on days out with parents. Family members, Carers. As we all need to access healthy foodstuffs in our attempts at healthy living, etc.

  14. Stickers for toy sets, yes :- I have heard other parents finding this element time consuming and fiddly. I suppose the thing is we are all really keen / eager / happy with the new item / toys, etc. And so, so excited about getting it out the box and trying it out. Eager to have fun :- Excitement, oh, to be young again, and treated to such delightful treats. Childhood is such a valuable / treasured time. Childhood passes so quickly.

  15. It seems a shame that the toy set does not come with at least one Sylvannian figure. As could be shopkeeper / Stall - holder, etc. Also would allow child or children to be able to play and interact with the toy set promptly.

    Maybe Company think people will by the toy set as an addition to their collection of Sylvannian families toys. Yet for some this toy set could be a Wonderful treat, as well as an introduction to Sylvannian families and thei collection /s, toys, etc. I personally would not consider buying it as an introduction / start :- As incomplete in that aspect.

  16. I am Wondering what other themed toy sets Sylvannian Families, and other Brands may have. Role Play can be a good thing for children.

    Though in the Real World. Somehow it seems like there may be a totally different system /way of working / priorities Monday - Friday, and at Weekends. Just Why would or Should this be? Are requirements different on different days of the week?? Management tends to be available possibly ?? / around?? / accessible?? / approachable?? : - Monday to Friday ( probably office hours). Though some Service Provision is necessary 24 / 7. Such as Hospital facilities. Care Home facilities, Care at Home services, etc, etc.

    Sadly access to visit Care Home ( family, friends) seems to be delayed in the evenings, and at weekends ( particularly on a Sunday). Now when visiting Hospital. Patient having been admitted as an Emergency. Sunday evening visiting :- During set visiting hours. Access to visitors toilets, blocked. As sign at each toilet area entrance ( sign cleaning in progress). Male, Female, and Disabled toilets :- All at the same time. What to do?? These are the only visitor toilets in this multi - level hospital. The toilets being next to a busy waiting area for Accident and Emergency Department.

    As I was desperate went to toilet :- No one to be seen, no cleaning equipment seen, no staff seen, no wet floor, no wet floor sign. Weekends tend to be minimum staffing level /s :- So how would they be in process of cleaning three toilet areas at one time, during hospital visiting times, etc. Seems Management needs to Manage at Weekends, as well as weekdays. As certainly not "client friendly", " Fit For Purpose", etc. Public Funds need to be used Effectively. Staff Need to work Efficiently. The Service should be Aiming to meet the Needs of Clients / Patients / Visitors / Carers, etc. It is a Basic NEED to access a Toilet. Listen to me Rant. But how can Parents, Carers, etc support a Loved one with lack of Access to Basic facilities. Esther Ranzen :- Maybe she can Campaign on behalf of the Public for Improvements in Public Services :- Please!!

  17. Great looking toy. Looks like great fun. Likely encouraged children in regards to Healthy Eating / Healthy Living. As fresh fruit and vegetables ( as portrayed in the toy set ) are important aspects / ingredients for Health and Wellbeing.
