'''''Sylvanian Families''''' is the name of a line of video games and anthropomorphic collectible articulated toy plush figures, created by Japanese company Epoch in 1985 and distributed worldwide by a number of companies. The characters, grouped into families, are woodland creatures such as rabbits, foxes and bears. They remain a quintessential part of the 1990s boom in craze (or fad) toys.

The general design of families, clothes, furniture and vehicles is set in 1970s rural Britain, with most families apparently members of the middle classes, often hosting garden parties and going on short camping holidays. Many run small businesses. Most families start with a father, mother, sister and brother and add relatives on from there, often by way of grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins and babies in different playsets. The product line is generally commended for the degree of detail in its teeny-tiny accessories.

Sylvanian Families are known as Calico Critters in the USA, but they are basically the same toyline, the only difference being packaging and the names of products. The most popular word used to describe them is 'adorable'.
