New Village Friends - Frog Family

I didn't intend to buy the Sylvanian frog families at first. My friend sent me some money and asked me to process the transaction for her on eBay because she didn't have the account. So I did it but made a mistake of picking the wrong mailing address. For the first order the default address which was mine was selected. Woops...I thought, but instead of emailing the seller about changing address I just decided to keep them for myself. And I paid again to order another one for my friend. I wasn't a frog fan (this friend is!) because honestly I used to think they look odd, and they are very rare vintage items so they are so expensive compared with other critters.
 
This family traveled from Spain (free shipping yeah) in original Tomy boxes. The other old critters from Tomy I have are a duck couple (who are my favorite among all critters). I immediately fell in love with them when taking them out of the boxes. They don't look odd to me anymore and now I think they look so cute, innocent and funny. For the vintage Sylvanian from the manufaturer of Tomy, $80 for a big family with no international shipping charge is really a good and fair deal.  Don't miss it if you are a Sylvanian collector. We know sometimes the bid goes really high for just one of them, let alone the shipping cost $$.   
 
And those wonderful village friends, our new family here, have brought us a concert to share their happiness and enthusiasm. Guess frogs are born singers and musicians. Betty was invited to be the piano player. Long time no see right? : )

  4. I am afraid of frogs so I am not eager to buy this family but they do look cute in your pictures, especially that tiny baby frog! The musical set looks amazing as well. I see your darling Petite Blythe has come to like the piano. I am not into Blythe dolls but your photos of this little Blythe doll are always making me want to get one!
