If you’ve been checking in here, you may have noticed a lack of posts as of late. That’s because I’ve finally begun the process of cataloguing my Sylvanian collection. If you are a Sylvanian collector, start cataloguing as soon as possible, even if you’ve not yet amassed many sets. You’ll be thankful later! Being the idiot that I am, I waited for over two years before getting started. In that span of time, the project has become a very time consuming task.
I’ve been putting all of my items on a website, which required learning just enough HTML to make a start. The process is fun and enjoyable, but it’s very clear that it’s going rather a long time to get caught up. If you’d like to have a look, here’s a link.
Some new families have arrived in Sylvanian for 2018. This family is the Alpaca family! It’s always exciting to meet a new family, and I am loving these alpacas. They have extra fluffy looking heads. Their clothing looks a bit more “homespun” than the silk-style clothing that we’ve seen a lot of recently in the Town Series.
So far, the Alpacas have only been released in Japan. I couldn’t wait for the UK or US version, so I had the JP Alpacas shipped on release day. The family includes two parents, a sister, and a baby. There are no official names for the JP Alpacas.
Thanks for visiting! Hopefully, I’ll get photos of the new Otter and Marshmallow Mouse family posted here soon.
