Maple Cat Sister & Marshmallow Mouse Sister
Have you met Miranda Maple and Stephanie Marshmallow, the new Town older sisters?
Miranda the Maple Cat Older Sister is a florist at the lovely Blooming Flower Shop in Town. She loves creating extravagant flower arrangements and spending time with her little sister Millie, who she is teaching about all the different types of flowers.
Miranda’s favourite flower is a simple daisy, but she loves anything that’s colourful! She even dresses from head to toe in a beautiful floral dress, with a flower bag to match!
Stephanie is the Marshmallow Mouse Older Sister and has a wonderful eye for detail. She’s an interior designer and nothing makes her whiskers tingle quite like a well decorated room. She helps her mother and father, Bianca and Bernard with the triplets when they are causing trouble, and is currently designing a brand new nursery to keep them entertained!
She wears a fashionable mint-green dress, and a belt which features a marshmallow motif. She always carries a camera, sketchbook and pencil in her handbag, ready to note down any ideas on the go!
Woolly Alpaca Family
The Woolly Alpacas are new to Sylvania, and are some of the most creative, craftiest Sylvanians around! They have the softest yarn which they take great pride in, and wear clothes in a gorgeous vintage style.
Andre can knit the warmest, cosiest garments out of the most beautifully coloured yarn. He sometimes spends so long poring over the samples, that Ariana wonders where he is.
Ariana is Andre’s beautiful wife with a singing voice to match. Her favourite season is winter and she practices Christmas carols all year long to sing to her neighbours. She also loves to wrap up warm in Andre’s cosy knitwear.
Just like her parents, Fiorella is imaginative and artistic. You’ll usually find her creating something beautiful. Recently she has taken to embroidery and adds beautiful details to all of her clothes. Her latest project is with her father - they're making a beautiful scarf for her mother, which Fiorella will decorate with delicate embroidery.
Gabriel is the youngest of the Woolly Alpacas and, although he is the smallest, he certainly has the biggest smile. He loves the colour green and exploring the meadow is his favourite thing to do.
The Town Girls
These wonderful young ladies are bringing their beauty, style and skills to the Town . Meet Lulu Golightly, Stella Chocolate and Laura Cakebread, the big sisters of some of our favourite Sylvanians in Town! Although they will be very busy working hard, they love spending time with their families and teaching their little sisters to be successful young women, just like them.
Lulu Golightly is a talented makeup artist and loves to make the visitors to Town look AND feel beautiful. Lulu is very beautiful herself - her favourite colour is purple as it goes so well with her pure white fur and elegant eyes. When she’s not swishing and swooping her brushes over the cheeks and eyelids of the locals you will see her about town shopping with her younger siblings Tiffany And Toby, or sharing afternoon tea with her friends Stella and Laura.
Stella Chocolate is the fashion icon of the Town. Her dress is one she designed herself and is always paired with the perfect accessories. Stella likes to make sure people feel special, so she uses other Sylvanian’s birthstones to create a special dress just for them. She has a private studio, a space in which she just loves to get creative whenever she’s not working hard selling dresses at the Grand Department Store. Stella’s little sister Freya simply bursts with pride when she speaks about her big sister.
Laura Cakebread makes the best chocolates anyone has ever tasted. Sometimes she makes them shaped like beautiful jewels… they look too pretty to eat! She is big sister to Melinda, who loves baking cakes and dreams of having her own successful business just like Laura when she is older. When Laura isn’t working at the chocolate shop you will nearly either find them cooking up some tasty treats or exploring the town.
Maple Cat Family
Meet the Maple Cat Family: Father Theodore, Mother Georgina, Sister Millie and Brother Jasper. You’ll recognise them by their beautiful ginger coats, which are super soft and shiny in the sunlight. They’re the newest family and you’ll usually find them in the Town, where Theodore and Georgina both work.
Theodore is the new tram driver in the Town and quickly makes friends with everyone he meets. He’ll usually be wearing a driver’s hat and red bow tie, as well as the cheeriest smile on his face. Theodore never gets lost and often gives great suggestions to those looking for their next adventure.
Georgina is the owner of the Creamy Gelato Shop, which serves the best gelato in all of the Town! She can guess which your favourite gelato flavour is just by meeting you! She picks all the fresh fruit for her gelato by paw and often creates new flavour combinations, which she gives to the children to test out.
Millie is a big nature enthusiast and will happily stay out in the meadow all day long, studying all the different plants. She has a real eye for composition and her beautiful bouquets are always perfectly arranged. She’s even been asked to lend a paw with the flowers for the Delicious Restaurant!
Jasper is a budding author, with a huge imagination that he uses to create lots of adventure stories. When he needs some inspiration, he goes to the library to read about his favourite characters – sometimes he’ll be there until the sun goes down and will have to run home for dinner!
Little Alfie is a bit of a rascal! You have to keep a close eye on him, as he’s very curious and always wandering off to explore somewhere new. He loves musical instruments and is especially good on the xylophone. He takes it with him everywhere, even for journeys on board his dad’s tram!
Twins Daisy and Misty Maple are quite the opposite of each other. Daisy is very confident and loves loud music, often playing together with her brother Alfie, whereas Misty is a bit more timid. She prefers peace and quiet and can find loud noises quite scary.
White Mouse Family
Meet the Hawthorns White Mouse Family: Father Hickery, Mother Imogen, Brother Bryce and Sister Laurel. You’ll spot them a mile off as their fur is as white as snow and their ears as pink as candyfloss. They’ll usually be spotted running around the fields playing games – all as one big family. Hickery is a cheerful entertainer and likes to make everyone around him feel happy. His magic skills ensure he can often be found entertaining other Sylvanian residents with his amazing tricks. No one can ever work out how he does the tricks, and when asked, his response is always “It’s just magic!” Imogen loves to talk on the phone – she’s always advising customers at work who are looking for a new car so they can take their family on an adventure. She always has the right suggestions and makes lots of new friends through her job. In her spare time, she loves to map out the family’s next camping adventure. Bryce is popular at school. Cheerful and full of good spirit, he likes making everyone laugh by telling jokes. He sometimes giggles a little too much in class but always apologies if a teacher is speaking at the same time. Bryce’s hand is the first to go up when a question is asked and even if his answer is not quite right, his friends admire his enthusiasm. Laurel always does things her own way. She’s always on an adventure -either real or imaginary - and can’t wait for the next one to start!
The Toy Poodle Family
Meet the Cakebread Toy Poodle Family: Father Frank, Mother Veronica, Brother Eric and Sister Melinda. They’re the newest members to the village and you’ll often find them at the new Village Cake Shop, no doubt icing delicious cakes to their heart’s content.
Father Frank is good at sports and loves playing soccer or games of catch with the children in the village on weekends. Frank’s outfits make him stand out from the crowd - whether he's wearing ordinary clothes or dressed for sport, he always looks striking. His favourite item is a rather fetching green tie… it’s as green as Sylvanian grass!
Mother Veronica runs the Village Cake Shop; she's particularly good at making pretty decorations out of cream and is often invites everyone from the village around to her house to try her latest creation.
Brother Eric is top of the class at school but is also good at helping his friends when they don't understand something. Everyone goes to straight to him for help because he knows just how to explain things clearly and kindly – maybe he will be a teacher one day! Sometimes he cares a little too much about his grades; if he doesn't get full marks in a test, he gets so disappointed that he runs home as soon as school is over.
Sister Melinda is an outgoing girl and makes friends very easily. She loves baking cakes; one day her mother made a new cake and invited all of the children around for a tea party. Melinda had so much fun that she's now learning how to bake cakes herself so she can hold her own tea party.
Baby Milo just wants to do things by himself, like a big boy! He loves to be praised – it’s like sunshine on his back – so whenever he manages to do something all by himself, Milo makes sure he tells his mother or nursery teacher. On the other hand, there are some things about being a baby that he still enjoys, such as napping in his mother's lap….. Zzzzzzzzzzz.
Mia is the smiliest baby in the village. She always has a beaming smile on her face, even when she’s surrounded by people she doesn’t know. Making friends is her favourite thing to do.
Max is very quiet compared to his twin sister and never gets into any mischief. But he does love to be on the move, crawling around as fast as he can when his family aren’t watching.
The Striped Cat Family
Meet the Striped Cat Family: Father Simon, Mother Amelia, Sister Sabrina and Brother Shane. You’ll mostly find them at Sea Breeze Cape, playing in the sand or splish, splosh, splashing around in the sea.
Father Simon is a rather jolly chap who always wears a smile on his face. His favourite thing of all time is marine sports – especially when it’s summer and the sea in Sea Breeze Cape is as blue as the sky and as warm as the sand on his paws. He regularly encourages Sabrina to play outdoors and hopes that one day she will love sport just as much as he does!
Mother Amelia runs the Seaside Ice Cream Shop down at Sea Breeze Cape and oh, what a wonderful job she does have! There isn’t a day that goes by where she doesn’t enjoy serving all the little ones who are having the bestest time ever– their beaming smiles really do make her day. When they taste that first bit of raspberry ice cream and their faces light up like the night sky… why, it’s the best feeling in the whole world!
Sister Sabrina takes after her Father as she loves playing sports. She can usually be found adventuring on her bike, whooshing around here, there and everywhere! Freya Chocolate and she are the best of friends – if they aren’t together, then they will be writing to each other week in and week out. They made friendship bracelets last week, when it was too rainy to play outside.
Brother Shane wants to be an explorer when he grows up… he especially wants to discover all the beautiful things in Sylvania, including the sea and nature and all of the parts in between. For his birthday, Shane’s family got him his first camera so that he can document his adventures properly. He’s been practicing how to use it for a while but hasn’t quite got the hang of it yet. Practice makes perfect though!
Chihuahua Dog Family
Meet the Chihuahua Dog Family: Father Cesar, Mother Conchita, and twins Laya and Pablo. The Chihuahua Dog Family are a shy bunch but kind and caring once you get to know them.
Father Cesar is a real book worm – he loves nothing better than to sit quietly in his room and read about adventures. He has very varied interests too; he likes to read about fishing, botany and cooking the best. Because he’s read so many books, he is a dab hand at cooking and always has a scrumptious dinner waiting for Conchita and the children when they arrive home. You can smell it from the Boutique!
Mother Conchita loves flowers and likes to walk through the countryside collecting the prettiest ones. She likes to save her favourite flowers by pressing them and has such a huge collection at home, her shelves are overflowing! Just like Father Cesar, Conchita is quite shy so not many people know about her impressive flower collection but she’s just as proud all the same.
Pablo really loves cars and can’t wait for the day he’s old enough to learn to drive himself. Whenever he hears someone driving through the village, he immediately dashes out to admire the car and he gazes longingly at all the shiny cars he passes on his way home from school. He’s saving up for a Convertible but it might take a little while!
Laya is the most outgoing member of the Chihuahua Dog Family and loves spending time with her friends after school. Like lots of the villagers, her favourite thing to do is to go shopping, especially for matching stationery and accessories. At school, everybody looks admiringly at her desk which glistens with fashionable gems.
Yellow Labrador Family
Meet the Yellow Labrador Family: father Barker, mother Lucy, daughter Sadie and son Buddy. Their fur is so golden and glossy, some people say it’s as pretty as the sun!
Father Barker loves to play games, especially ball games outside on a summer’s day. His favourite game is tag or catch, and he gets even more absorbed in playing than the children do! Toys are his next most favourite thing and has a big collection of them lined up in his room that he used to play with when he was little. He loves them so much, he never throws any away so his collection is always getting bigger!
Mother Lucy loves reading books, especially at the nursery to all the children. She loves showing them the colourful pictures and seeing their excited faces, and they always look forward to seeing her. All that reading is tiring work though, so at night she often falls asleep before the babies do! ZzzZzZzz.
Buddy is the youngest in the family and a bit spoiled because of it. He wants to be with his father all the time, especially on ‘Bring Your Child to Work Day’. Just like Barker, he really loves toys – his favourite is a stuffed toy that his father gave him when he was a baby. It sleeps with him every night in bed, but he keeps it a secret from his friends because he's a little embarrassed to admit it.
Sadie is a bit of a shopaholic and loves buying pretty clothes that match all her friends. Her favourite dress is a blue and white one – purchased from the new Boutique – that’s exactly like her mother’s dress. She loves to wear it when the family goes out together so they can be matching, and people always comment on how alike they look.
Red Panda Family
Meet the Robinson Family: Father Wilbur, Mother Fliss and little Frances. They have the glossiest red fur out of everyone in Sylvanian Village. It’s so shiny, you can see it sparkle in the sun from one side of the village to the other!
Father Wilbur is a very cheerful chap and always happy. If you’re ever feeling sad about anything he can cheer you up in minutes! He loves to be outside and goes for plenty of picnics in the park with his family. When not scoffing all the sandwiches at the picnic, he likes to grow grapes on the sunny slopes, just south of the Sylvanian Village. Some of the grapes are for his fruit bowl at home, while the rest are made into yummy drinks. Wilbur’s favourite grapes are the ones he grows for his wife’s scrummy homemade grape juice, which everyone else loves too.
Mother Fliss is an amazing baker and loves to make delicious treats for her family. Her specialities are strawberry shortcake and chocolate mousse pies, which never stick around for long! When not baking, she’s busy squashing all the juicy grapes which Wilbur grows into tasty drinks. She’s known in the Sylvanian Village for her delicious grape juice.
A love of food and drink runs in the family, as Daughter Frances is a budding drink creator too! She dreams of becoming famous for creating a new special drink, just like her mother, so spends lots of time helping her parents in order to learn as much as possible. They’re both very proud of her and happy to advise her on the best fruit combinations. She’s got plenty of her own exciting ideas though, like a grape juice with mango that she’s working on at the moment. When not in the kitchen, she loves to be outside and playing sports. Football is her favourite sport and she’s a star member of her school’s team.
