I haven't written on my blog for a few weeks. That's because I've been busy traveling! I went to London, England for my aunt's wedding! It was a lot of fun, but I think one of the more fun places I visited was the Sylvanian Families shop in Highbury.
Sylvanians are little animal figurines that have entire little worlds of accessories to go with them. I have been into them for a few years- I usually get a few sets for special occasions like my birthday and New Year. (They are called Calico Critters in the United States.) I really enjoyed the Sylvanian Families shop because the shopkeepers have arranged scenes all over the store. Isn't this scene cute? A little dog is having a picnic!
The shop is pretty small, but it is packed to the brim with toys! I picked out several items, which I'll reveal in another blog post. I loved choosing what to bring home to New York City, but I had to be very selective because my suitcase was not that big.
Here's another little scene- doesn't it look adorable?
I really liked this hotel, but it was far too large to even attempt to bring home in my suitcase! It's even bigger than I am! Aren't the accessories cute? I love the phonograph!
Before I left, I made sure my mama took my picture with Freya Chocolate, a "local celebrity." She was all dressed up for the holidays!
The Sylvanian Families shop is a fabulous little store. If you are ever in London, don't forget to stop by and visit!
