Lile, Sábha and I were really excited about the latest Friends of Sylvanian Families product we were sent to review - the Sylvanian Families Hot Dog Van! The girls had their sports day the week it arrived and there had been a hot dog stand there. They loved having a well-deserved hot dog picnic with their friends after their races and activities. Inspired by that, we decided to set up a Sport's Day for our Sylvanian Friends in the garden!
All of our Sylvanian Family friends came out for the day. We set up some bunting and eagle-eyed spectators took up great viewing positions in the tree house.
We made medals out of tiny gold buttons and some red embroidery thread and the race winners were so proud to wear them.
The winners of the races were allowed to choose their treats first and they sat together for a special winners-picnic.
Then it was everybody else's turn to choose what they wanted. Frasier rabbit was kept very busy, pouring coffee and juice, cooking sausages on the grill and offering all kinds of different toppings for the hot dogs.
After a wonderful fun-filled day all the winners lined up in front of the Hot Dog Van to have their photo taken. Hooray!
Sylvanian Family Hot Dog Van comes with over 40 pieces; from the all important apron and cap to the menu, condiments, food containers and all the food. The van itself is a lovely cheerful yellow colour with a stripy awning and gorgeous, vintage-style signage.
My girls (and me!) are really enjoying playing with this new addition to our collection and I think it would make a lovely gift for a Summer birthday child
