The Timbertop family are one of the original Sylvanian Families range. First launched in Japan and then later in the UK in 1987. This bear family consisted of Grandparents, Parents, Older Children, Younger Children and Babies upon launch.
Over the years the Timbertop family have been re-released numerous times, were included in various sets and have received additional/extended family members along the way.
An Early Years edition of the family were released in 1997. Taylor and Rose Timbertop were smaller in size, depicting them in the early days of their marriage. They came with a baby Ivy Timbertop.
All members of the family are dark brown with strong features and quite large when compared to other families. The Timbertop's in the original Sylvanian Families range had flat hands and the older siblings, Bud and Daisy, had non poseable arms.
Later releases of the family saw the introduction of the more common grasping hands, while Bud and Daisy also gained moveable arms.
