The Chocolate Rabbit Family
So this week we take a look at the Chocolate family. And yet another family that I didn't like at first and was certain that I will never buy.
I did, however, needed the Daisy/Sycamore (or as it is called here Starter House) Cottage for the Fielding family and got Freya Chocolate with it. At first I thought of passing Freya on to another collector, but then realised that no one NEEDS her or WANTS her as she is everywhere. So I put her on the shelf and slowly but surely she grew on me. I think it was the chocolate tipped ears.
As luck (or fate?) will have it, one of the online sites had a massive sale and I bought the standing baby set and the father set for half the price. Then a fellow Sylvanian Collector send me Terri and my family was complete. They were the 11th family I got. They are also one of a few families that are not "complete" in other words a family member is missing, (to me a complete family is father, mother, brother, sister and at least one baby) in this case the brother. The Chocolates will stay like this. I'm thinking of getting the newly released grandparents as well as the older sister. Time will tell, maybe I get them for a steal too.
A full view of the cosy cottage.
A view of the ground floor, with the kitchenette and living room. Terri loves to bake and Frasier loves his wife's cooking.
Full view of the top floor where the girls' room are, as well as the bathroom.
Kitchen - though tiny it has everything that Terri needs to bake some wonderful cakes and tarts.
Living room with mom and dad's sleeper couch.
Bathroom. Terri isn't very fond of the shower, but at least she has her own home now. One day they might live in a bigger home, where she will have a bath again.
Let's take another look at the kitchen. Some of you might recognise the counter, but to those who are new to Sylvanian Families this might be unfamiliar.
It is the counter that was released wit the Courtyard Restaurant . When I saw it the first time I knew it would be perfect for one of the smaller houses.
Not only does it have a counter for having lovely meals at, but it has a sink, stove top and an oven. Perfect!
The Chocolates own the Pizza Parlour in Sugarbush Valley. Frasier is extremely proud of his little establishment. To him it is all in the dough, he claims that his dough, i.e. pizza base is so good that one doesn't even need the toppings.
Mother Terri usually helps out at the till when Father Frasier has got some deliveries to do. And Freya really likes to help out as the waitress.
