Sylvanian Shop Closing This AprilSylvanian Shop Closing This April
Important news for our customers and collectors
After 30 wonderful years delighting Sylvanian Families collectors from all over the world, our owners, Taylor & Rose Timbertop, are retiring! This means that we will be closing the Sylvanian Families Shop in London, and our online store at sylvanianstorekeepers.com, after the Easter holidays.

Taylor, Rose and their entire team, spanning three decades, would like to thank every single person who has supported us over the years. Whether you’ve shopped with us in person in London, ordered from our website or by telephone, or even back in the day sent an order by post, we are so very grateful. Perhaps you were a collector’s club member, or saved tokens from Sylvanian Families packs in the 80s and 90s – every one of you has contributed to our many happy years here.

There’s still plenty of time to come and see us, and of course to order online for home delivery. Service will continue as normal through the first few months of 2023 with us closing our doors for the final time after the Easter holidays.

Don’t miss the chance to visit Europe’s only independent specialist Sylvanian Families store one last time, or if you’ve never been, tick the experience off your bucket list! We look forward to welcoming you on your next visit.

Find us at 68 Mountgrove Road, London N5 2LT or online at www.sylvanianstorekeepers.com

What is SSK?

SSK stands for Sylvanian Store Keepers. We are a family-owned, independent toy retailer, specialising in Sylvanian Families and other collectable miniatures.
We have been involved with Sylvanian Families since it first arrived in the UK way back in 1987, and we run the only specialist Sylvanian store in Europe.
In its current form, SSK Productions Ltd. was created in 1991 by Simon & Angela Harwood, to manage the Sylvanian Families Token Collectors Scheme on behalf of Tomy, who were the brand’s original UK distributor.
In 1992 we started the original Sylvanian Families Collector’s Club, and then in 1993 we opened our store here in Mountgrove Road, London, where we have been delighting Sylvanian collectors from around the globe for two generations. 

What do we do?
We believe in bricks & mortar retail, we believe in good customer service, properly delivered, and we whole-heartedly believe in the brands we sell. Our small team are passionate about our products and are always happy to go the extra mile for our customers.
We are delighted that our store has become well known worldwide for being the only independent Sylvanian store of its kind. Our extensive range, coupled with our fantastic customer service and expert product knowledge make us a must-see for Sylvanian fans of all ages.

What do we sell?
Our main product offering is, of course, Sylvanian Families. We also stock a selection of other carefully selected brands that compliment our Sylvanian friends, meaning you can shop from any of our ranges and mix-and-match items from all of them.
