Review: The shoe sets

Dear Readers,

when I read/heard about Eaton Blackberries (who runs the lovely blog Sugarbush Valley) gorgeous competition about reviewing (read all about it hereI fastly started taking pictures, especially because I was asked about the difference of two very identical looking item: the Village Shoe Boutique and the Village Shoe Shop. 
I got them both, because my mum thought it would be weird if a shoe shop only had one cupboard of shoes :D.

So here’s a little review on both sets. Kind Margarete Petite and 3 other villagers of Marigold Creek helped me demonstrating the sets on some pictures. So please note: In both sets are no figures included.

Here you see both sets unpacked and arranged in my non finished shoe shop (also not! included in both sets).



Both sets come with 9 pairs of shoes (3 adult shoes, 3 children shoes and 3 baby shoes), one display shelf, one bench, one carpet, one mirror (same colour), a basket, two tubes of shoe cream, two cans of shoe wax, a shoe horn and a little sponge.

At the first glance, they don’t look that different, besides the different carpet colours, shoe horns and seating cushions.

Both have a huge drawer under the display shelf, where the shoe packages can be stored.



If you look closer, you can see that the baskets have different colours and even the tubes for shoe care have slightly differences in colour (on the left: shoe boutique, on the right: shoe shop). But the prints on the tubes say the same – so no difference there.


Also the shoe packages have different designs. I placed the boxes in front of their set shelf.


You also see that the display shelfs have different colours. While the Village Shoe Boutique is white, the Village Shoe Shop has a cream colour.

The most important difference and the other cause why I’m having both shoe sets are the shoes themselves.

Here you see the shoes, which come with the Village Shoe Boutique…


…and here the one from the Village Shoe Shop.


They partial have the same design but in different colours.

And how do Sylvanians look with shoes on their feet? Here’s a picture. Margarete shows us some summer sandals, Bobby some elegant shoes, Lucky a sporty version and little Marie some cute pink ones.


Alltogether I must say that I really like both sets. And together they build a perfect shop. But and that’s the only little thing I criticize: there is no cash register. I just wonder a bit, why they’re called Shop or Boutique, when the poor villagers can’t pay at a cash register…. But maybe they don’t need one and the owner of the shop has his purse all the time with him/her :D.

I hope you liked the little review and maybe I could also help by some buying decisions.


Yours Kyra

  3. I prefer the shoe boutique, but I also like the shoes better in the village shoe shop. So I like them both, maybe the shoe boutique is a little bit nicer.
