Our first order from sylvanianfamilies.com was delivered today; it shipped on Tuesday and was here in the States in my mailbox four days later. That's crazy fast delivery in my opinion. Everything came in great shape too. I can't find a ding or dent in any of the packages.

The items are pretty sweet from what I can tell. We got the baby's kindergarten dress, boy outfit, summer outfit for father, summer outfit for mother, and summer outfit for sister. I want to try to take pictures of the items in their packages before we open them, so we haven't really gotten a good look at the clothing yet.

I had e-mailed Rocky a few times. It seems that they are going to be updating the sylvanianfamilies.com website in 2011 and will then have the ability to accept paypal. I didn't ask if orders from outside of UK will be able to be placed through the new website, but here's hoping. Just having the ability to pay through paypal is exciting enough news for me.

I'm very pleased after my first experience ordering from sylvanianfamilies.com. Having to do everything through e-mail was pretty awkward, but it has all worked out and only took about a week and a half from beginning the order process with a shipping quote to having the items in hand. I'm still pretty amazed at how quickly the items got here!
Well, I finally did it, and I can't believe what I ordered! After a few e-mails fired out to Rocky, I decided to order five outfits for my wife from sylvanianfamilies.com.  

We ordered:

1. Nursery Uniform for Baby,
2. Outfit & Shoes for Brother,
3. Summer Outfit for Father,
4. Summer Outfit for Mother,
5. Summer Outfit for Sister.

I didn't tell my wife just how much I was spending on these outfits for her, and I don't think I ever will. The way I see it if she wants them, I'll buy them for her. The actual cost was only a bit more than I estimated, but I think my wife (an accountant, no less) would be shocked at what the British pound really converts to in US dollars.

And with every order that I make special for my wife, maybe, just maybe, she'll wear down and let me buy the Riverside Canal Boat for myself (not even going to try to pretend that one's for my daughter)...
