Global vote has been held as part of the brand’s 35th anniversary this year.
Sylvanian Families fans have been busy during the COVID-19 lockdown, voting for their favourite family of all time to mark the brand’s 35th anniversary this year.
The Puddleford Ducks – launched in 1994 – topped the poll of over 100 family sets that have appeared during the collectable toy range’s history.
Epoch making toys has also confirmed that, as a result of the fans’ vote, key members of the Puddlefords family will be re-released in spring 2021.
In total, over 220,000 votes were counted online, with the campaign being run via Epoch’s HQ in Japan between April 1 and May 29.
Despite competition from other iconic families such as the Moles, Racoons and Meerkats, the Puddleford Ducks were by far the most popular, receiving 8% 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 are continuing throughout the year, with the launch of an exclusive number of limited edition products arriving in Q4.
