It's taking some time for me to finish up my review of the Sylvanian Families Village, but here is the final instalment. To continue from Part 1, after roaming for close to 2 hours, it was approaching lunchtime. There is only one place to eat at the Sylvanian Families Village and, no surprises, it's at the Sylvanian Kitchen. The restaurant is a life-sized Sylvanian Kitchen building.
Inside the Sylvanian Kitchen, we are welcomed by the Cottontail Rabbit Chef. Isn't he adorable? Although the interior details of the restaurant is not a replicate of the smaller-scale Sylvanian Kitchen building, they have these super cute chairs with Sylvanian rabbits outline as the chair backings.
I did not really pay attention to the list of F&B they served at the restaurant as I was too busy focusing at these 2 dishes that I immediately ordered:
Turned out that these are, of course, their signature dishes, but they are considered children's meal. There is actually similar offerings for adults which are more substantial, but not so nicely decorated. The food was ok, not gourmet standard, but I have had worse meals in other theme parks.
After lunch, we walked around the park some more. The Sylvanian Village is home to the Nonohana Rabbits (meaning "Wildflower" Rabbits). There were Nonohana Rabbit figures everywhere throughout the park, but strangely there was no Nonohana Rabbit's house. We also visited the life-sized Sylvanian Bakery, complete with character breads. I bought a bread and Milk Jam for my daughter's next-day breakfast, and we ended up bringing the leftover jam back home which tasted very milky and very yummy.
Just in time too, after we finished exploring the Bakery, it started to rain. There is one place we have not visited, and that is the Sylvanian Market. Time to spend some money. The Sylvanian Market at the theme park is basically the shop that sells all the Sylvanian Families items. It was surprisingly a small shop. I had also expected the shop to be more complete in terms of the family sets and loose figures it sells. Apart from the Nonohana rabbit family and the Ginger Cat sister figure, which are exclusive to the Sylvanian Families Village, I can find all the other items in Tokyo. I was a little disappointed, not having many things to buy (silly me!), but I did enjoy looking at all the displays they had around the shop.
All fun things must come to an end somehow. After a few hours in Sylvanian Families Village, it time for us to say goodbye as the rain started to fall harder and showed no sign of letting up. The Sylvanian Families shows were cancelled due to the rain, which was a bit of a shame. I wonder whether I will have another chance to come back here again since it is a little out of the way to visit the Sylvanian Village. Nevertheless, I am glad that I made it this time around to Grinpa.
I like to experiment with photography and dabble in crafty things. I started collecting Sylvanian Families in 2009 and hope that someday my little daughter will enjoy playing and collecting Sylvanian Families as much as I do.
