The Sylvanian Families Christmas Bus

Christmas is coming.... And so is the Sylvanian Christmas Bus!
No, this is not the latest Sylvanian Families Limited Edition Christmas set to arrive. We're kind of wishing it was, though, and how amazing if it was!
Rachel from UK, has cleverly customised this preloved Kindergarten Bus and turned it into a festive village Christmas vehicle!

Rachel enjoys finding secondhand Sylvanian Families items that need a little love and care and customising them. We featured some of her Sylvanian makeovers recently in an article, which you can read here

The orginal bus was the 2011 release Kindergarten Bus

Quite a festive transformation.

A little paint and careful artwork and lots of minute details

Where the inbuilt bus trampoline once filled this place, Rachel has cleverly repurposed this area to be the Christmas tree storage space.

Don't you love the tiny rolls of gift wrapping paper and Rachel's ribbon roll holder!
