Sylvanian Families Betty's Toy Box

Hi! We will be looking at the second of the three cottage-type toy shops in the Sylvanian Families/Calico Critters line; Betty's Toy Box.

It was first released in the U.K. in January 2011. And unlike Hazelwood's Toy Shop, it only came with one figure; Betty Hazelwood.

Betty's Toy Box commercial packaging.
It was supposedly only available for sale at Tesco.

Sylvanian Families Betty's Toy Box contents
I did get this building brand new so I had all the correct bits and pieces. The display shelf is red instead of blue!

I forgot to take a reference picture of the contents--but these are all that's in there. The contents are very similar to the original release.

Betty Hazelwood dons the same dress she does in Hazelwood's Toy Shop.

I love the detail of the ribbon above her tail.

The building's color scheme is different form the first one. Instead of blue on white, this building dons cream-colored walls and green windows.

On one side of the building, there's a window that can be opened or closed.

I tried to arrange all  the contents to reflect the promo image exactly.
I can't really choose which one is my favorite between the two releases. It's a bid sad that Oliver Bearbury isn't included in the box, but the two releases are generally similar except for a few minor changes.

I guess that's it for now. The last version of this toy shop I'll be opening is from the Calico Critter's line. Very exciting! See you again soon!(*^^*)

Sylvanian Families Brick Oven Bakery

The Brick Oven Bakery was the first shop I bought after I got my very first Sylvanian Families house, the City House with Lights. Convincing myself in my first few days into the hobby that I will only really need one house and one shop, I chose this bakery.

The bakery became first available in Japan on April 2, 2015. The Toys R Us Japan gift set version later became available about 4 months later on August 8, 2015.

I bought the Toys R Us version myself.

Official promotional picture.

The giftset version includes two dolls except for Eleanor Bramble: Freya and Saffron. They wear  matching dresses. Also included are an outdoor table and chairs set with a couple of magazines, a lamp-post, and a variation of the cobblestone slab available for sale at the Japanese Premium Club Shop.

I thought these were really great additions! It was also a point in time when I only had the Buckleys residing in my village and a few more residents were badly needed. ; 3 ;

There is also another Toys R Us Version of this building released elsewhere.
Instead of Saffron, we get sister Abigail in a very cute dress. Freya is also included in a different dress. The table and chairs included are the re-color of the ornate garden table and chairs. The lamp post is also maroon red instead of the green one we receive in the JP release.

I'm so glad Eleanor decided to open up her business in my town!

Now let's take a close look at the bakery.

Cream walls and an orange roof to match the red brick oven. 

On one side is a large display window.

The shelves on the sides of the building can not be rearranged.

On the other side are pictures of some of the bread available for sale in-store.

I added a few extra bread and accessories in my shop.

But the amount of baked goodies included in the  set is enough to fill the shelves.


Uhhh. YUM!

Saffron is having a hard time deciding which is better--the turtle bread or the fish bread??

Freya, on the other hand is ready to check out!

Eleanor's lovely smile, aside from the wonderful baked goods she makes, will surely keep customers coming back.


It's a lovely building! I love the use of warm colors and the detail in every bread in the set. Plus I really enjoy setting this one up every time since the amount of items included isn't too overwhelming! XD

Do you have this building in your village?
