A short review: Roxy's cleaning set
Recently I completed a trade with another new SF friend I made. She is from Germany and has a great blog. Besides spending most of my money on acquiring these cute figures I love the friendships I've made over the past few years through mostly our forum, but also by following other blogs and even through ebay.
I got to know "Kyraja" through my blog. We started chatting and so the first trade between the two of us was born. We decided to start of small, mostly to keep the postage low, but also that IF the package got lost that the loss will not be THAT big.
So it was decided that she will send me the vacuum cleaner set and I will send her the EB Fridge set and EB Desk set. But as most trades go, there is always something more in the parcel than initially agreed upon. And with this trade it was no different.
Besides the vacuum cleaner set, "Kyraja" also sent me some hand made bedding and two small bead like toys for some of the children. I guess Baden might get the boy bedding, but Bud Timbertop also needs new bedding. The girl's bedding are definitely going to Kirsty Corntop.
I ordered the set for Roxy Renard. She is the cleaning lady of Sugarbush Valley and much like her best friend Mae Mulberry, she is very famous in the village, and adored by all the women, for obvious reasons.
I was surprised how small the box was, but then again how big can a sylvanian vacuum cleaner be. All items were packed securely.
The vacuum cleaner is extremely cute, or in Roxy's words "state of the art". Roxy is now the first woman in the village and even in the district who owns a vacuum cleaner, which will make her work so much easier. Sweeping a carpet was never fun.
Included in the set was a tiny broom and dustpan, bucket and also a dustbin.
Some cleaning aids were included in the set - without stickers.
With stickers and the dust cloth.
Included in the set is also the cutest apron that Roxy can wear to protect her dress. The apron has pockets that is very handy top keep all the cleaning aids close by.
In my eyes a fantastic set, and must have for any village. The set was also released with a Basset Mother as part of the Hotel theme.
Thanks again "Kyraja" for a great trade and hope to do it soon, maybe those families we were talking about?!
