This year, Sylvanian Families is celebrating its 35th anniversary. To mark the occasion, fans of the popular collectable brand, from across the globe, have been busy voting for their favourite family of all time.

The Puddleton Ducks, launched in 1994, topped the poll of over one hundred family sets that have appeared during the collectable toy range’s history. 

As a result of the fans’ vote, key members of the Puddleton family will be re-released in the spring of 2021, Epoch making toys announced today. 

In total, over 220,000 votes were counted online, with the campaign being run via Epoch’s HQ in Japan between 1 April – 29 May. 

Despite competition from other iconic families such as the Moles, Racoons and Meerkats, the Puddleton Ducks were by far the most popular, receiving eight per cent of the total votes. Second and third place went to other vintage favourites: the Waters Beaver Family and the Dale Sheep Family. 

Global celebrations of Sylvanian Families 35th anniversary will continue throughout the year, with the launch of an exclusive number of limited-edition products arriving in the fourth quarter.
