WHAT IS IT?
A single Sylvanian Families figure with accessories. The figure is an adult size beige bear and he is wearing a postman's uniform. Postman Pete has a bike and a postman's bag with envelopes, letters, a tiny pencil and ink stamp. There is also a brown parcel that fits on the back of his bike and a postbox.
WHAT I THINK
I bought this for my daughter last year because she collects Sylvanian Families and I thought this would be a good addition to her village. It cost £12 and I think that's reasonable because you get a lot of accessories with it but it's still a lot of money for one figure.
Postman Pete is well dressed and you can tell it's a postman's uniform even if you didn't know. The uniform can be taken off and will fit other bear characters but my daughter doesn't do this, the hat sits on his head comfortably and doesn't fall off. The bear doesn't get dirty because most of the figure is covered in the dark blue uniform, it's only his face and feet that are showing and the beige colour of his fur doesn't show the dirt. I've taught my daughter to wipe all her figures after she's finished playing and that keeps them in good condition.
The letters and postcards that came in the set are small so easily lost, my daughter only plays with the figure, postbox and bike so in her case the other pieces are irrelevant. The bike feels quite flimsy but my daughter is old enough to look after her things so it hasn't been broken or damaged, the parcel fits on the back of the bike but cannot be clipped into place so does fall off sometimes during play time.
I like this postman set because it's a nice item to include in a collection of Sylvanian figures. I would not have bought it if my daughter didn't already have lots of figures and buildings because to get the most from Postman Pete he needs to have somewhere to deliver his letters.
