Dd aged 5 has announced she would like sylvanian families for Christmas. I'm delighted as I always wanted them as a childgrin

There are soo many sets to choose from I'm not sure which to go for.

I've already got her some bits so budget is do to around £70 but flexible. Please help.

The restaurant is good.

Have got my dd the SF doctor surgery this year.

Do you have Tesco clubcard vouchers to spend? They're doubling up from now till Christmas so your money will go further. We did that for DD a couple of years ago and got the caravan and car set, along with a family of cats. Lots of little bits came with both car and caravan and so the one set was pretty good value, I'd say. We've since added other families and small sets but haven't invested in any of the big ticket sets (houses etc.)

Keep checking amazon for the lightening deals, I bought the campervan last week for about £18 and lots of the families and houses were cheaper too. Sorry, not much use about what is best as my daughter is just starting to ask for them too.

My kids have one of the houses (half price in a sale...) but the caravan and car set comes out more often. And they have many baby sets which they have bought with birthday money or pocket money.

The canel boat was my favourite as a child.

the caravan is ace, as it's somewhere to live, but with tonnes of accessories

you can get it with out without the car. as a rule you don't get much in the way of accessories with the houses.

The Cannel Boat and the Hedgehog family was my all time bestest ever Christmas present as a child.

The canal boat

Thanks everyone. I think I will go for a caravan or canal boat. That way if it's a passing phase I haven't wasted a lot of money on it. I will also look at the cat family as I think she would love that.

I'd have the DeBerg family (penguins) Christmassy and just a bit out of place : )

I would be inclined to go for more animals. My dd plays with the sylvanians a lot but she makes them houses out of lego.
