I had sylvanians but I collected them more than played with them. I continued to collect them as a teen/adult and eventually decided to give them to my boys (I don't really like clutter/stuff just sitting around not doing anything). So my kids have a giant Sylvanian house and tons of the little families though they don't have a whole lot of the furniture or extras, just the people and house. My youngest enjoys them and obviously they have held up pretty well considering they are 20 years old. I will say that Tharen plays more with his playmobil than the Sylvanians but he enjoys the Sylvanians too.
