Welcome to Forest Families Collector!

Notice: The site is under construction. Due to some changes in my server, I'm having to remake the whole website. This is taking a while, so I'm putting up sections of the site as I go along. Right now the Families-pages are available, even though somewhat unfinished. I'm hoping to add page by page as soon as I can. For anything Forest Families related, contact me at admin at forestfamilies.net - I'm also happy to help with identification.

Notice in Finnish / Huomioitavaa suomeksi: Suomenkielisen sivun saa tällä hetkellä näkyviin vaihtamalla url-osoitteesta "en" tilalle "fi". Kuvat toimivat toistaiseksi vain englanninkielisellä puolella.

This site is devoted to information and pictures of the toy series called Forest Families. They are a 1980's toy series, quite similar with the more famous Sylvanian Families. Forest Families toys are human-like animals covered in soft vinyl flocking, and the species vary from cats and mice to crocodiles and turtles.

This website used to be around in years 2006-2009 and was known by the name Xara's Forest Families. If you are a fellow collector from those days and still remember me, welcome back to my site! If you have a site about Forest Families, let me know. I would love to share information and exchange links.

Forest Families are becoming increasingly hard to find, but also a more and more collected toy series. There is still a lot of information to be gathered about them - rare variants, where they were sold, and so on. I'm always looking for more information as well as new additions to my collection (Wants and Trades). Never hesitate to contact me about anything Forest Families related!

Happy collecting!

Your hostess, Xara
