Come and meet the friendly villagers who are always willing to lend a paw!

Slydale Fox Family

Slick Slydale

Slick Slydale is a quite a strong man! Young children are often scared by his big and manly appearance but his warm personality usually quickly wins them over. He is known for being a real softie under his skin though he would never admit it to anyone except for maybe his wife Velvette. For a job Slick does anything to do with construction or carpentry, that could be something as large as renovating a house for example or something as simple as mending a broken chair leg.

Velvette Slydale

Velvette Slydale is a bustling woman who likes to wear large dresses because she is all for comfort. Her greatest pride are her three children, Buster, Daisy and Skitter. You will always see Velvette to be very enthusiastic when the local school or nursery holds or announces an event or performance! Washing clothes and bed spreads is also one of her favourite things to so it is no wonder that she is friends with Tabitha Hazlewood who also loves to wash and has a brand new washing line!

Buster Slydale

Buster Slydale is known for his large array of pranks and jokes he plays on everyone. He is forever teasing his twin sister for being named after a flower and is constantly saying things like ‘Oh my precious petal!’ or ‘Are you quite sure you are alright Daisy diddums?!’ or ‘Rise and shine little flower, delicate Daisy dear!’. Of course he gets along very well with Rumpus Macavity, the boys are quite similar!

Daisy Slydale

Daisy Slydale is not a ‘delicate flower petal’ as her brother calls her. She is in fact a very confident young fox who isn’t afraid to speak her mind. Perhaps that is the reason why her twin brother Buster insists of teasing her about her ‘soft and delicate’ first name. Being quite tall for her age, Daisy uses it to her advantage when she is picked to be the leader of groups projects, she can become quite intimidating when she scold her peers for not pulling their own weight, looking very much like her mother Velvette as she does so.

Skitter Slydale

Skitter Slydale is the toddler of the family who is simply adored by everyone. His large eyes makes it hard for anyone to resist him and a few of the girls at nursery are already swooning over him. His mother Velvette believes that he will grow up to be a simply handsome fellow! Skitter likes to drink peppermint tea for some reason, ever since he tried his father Slick’s tea a year ago.

Wildwood Rabbit Family

Herb Wildwood

Herb Wildwood is all about being the best husband and father he can be! He loves his children and greatly prefers Ginger’s simple cooking over some overly lavish restaurant dish as her dishes make him feel ‘whole and fulfilled’ again after a long day in the country side. Not only that, he likes the family atmosphere that is present when the family eats together in their home and he feels that you can only get that feeling when the family is eating delicious home cooked food!

Ginger Wildwood

Ginger Wildwood loves to organize and plan garden parties. Naturally, this makes her a very social woman as sylvanians love her organized events as they are always fun and Ginger is full of an enticing warmth which seems to attract everyone! She likes to provide very rustic and simple meals for her family consisting of mainly root vegetables which she cooks into delicious stews.

Rusty Wildwood

Rusty Wildwood likes music and plays all sorts of instruments. He can’t choose which instrument he likes best because he likes to play so many! Everyone in the village who wants to learn an instrument goes to him as he is known not only for his extensive knowledge on nearly anything to do with music but also for his patience to teach. He really wants to play in an orchestra or band when he grows up and then open his very own music school!

Hollie Wildwood

Hollie Wildwood loves to bake just like her mother! When her mother is organizing a garden party she would often volunteer to do the baking, whether it is cakes, pies, cookies, anything! The only part about baking Hollie doesn’t like is the cleaning up and dish washing part of it sometimes she bribes her brother Rusty with the promise of cake to do it for her. After school and on weekend she sometimes helps out at the Bakery. Not for money but to improve her skills and to improve her knowledge of all things baking!

Moss Reindeer Family

Cameron Moss

Cameron Moss is the publisher of Dandelion Creek’s newspaper, the Daily Dandelion. He has always wanted to start a newspaper but in the village he lived in before he moved to Dandelion Creek, they already had their own newspaper.

Buck prefers to do outdoorsy things like canoeing over doing something as ‘boring’ as reading a book or writing something.

Juniper Moss

Everyday Juniper spends some of her time to help scout out topics for articles for her mother. She also enjoys reading mystery novels just like her mother does!

On a free afternoon he likes to sit on a bench in the sun and fill in crosswords, his wife gave him a book of crosswords for Christmas and he has nearly finished it!

Bridget Fielding

Bridget Fielding likes her whole family to look neat and tidy. Therefore she is very cross when Daniel comes inside covered in paint from his art class. Bridget loves to wash and iron her families clothes to make them look clean and neat, and she can often be found near a washing line, hanging up wet clothes. A thing that Bridget likes to do is to go and have tea with her friends, her favourite type of tea is chamomile with a tad of honey.

Daniel Fielding

Daniel Fielding is a very good artist. His favourite medium is to use acrylic or water colour paints which he uses to create wonderful artworks on canvases.

She is also good friends with Tillie Dappledawn who shares her passion for books. Maisie also enjoys sketching and sometimes she uses her brothers paints to fill in the sketches she has drawn. She also loves the same chamomile tea and honey mixture that her mother loves so they can often be seen drinking tea together.

Some of her favorite things to do are to bake and then close the Bakery for an hour and taking a morning stroll along the river.

Lupin Macavity

Fishing is another one of his favorite things to do so regularly arranges Father Son days where he, his younger brother Rumpus and his Father go fishing together.

Clara Macavity

Clara Macavity is very ladylike. She prides herself in her well dressed appearance and her near perfect manners. When she is not chatting with some other females in the community or drinking tea, she can be found most likely sitting under a tree either reading a romance novel or sewing something. She has recently taken up quilting as well. Of course being the eldest daughter in the household, she is expected to help clean and cook but does this rather willingly. Clara refuses to call her younger sister Asparagus by her real name since it is “unladylike” calling her sister a vegetable and therefore has resorted to calling her Aspa.

Rumpus Macavity

Rumpus Macavity loves to wind his sister Asparagus up. One of his favorite ways to get his sister annoyed at him is to, whenever they have asparagus, is to chase his sister round and round the room with a fork shouting “come here vegetable! I want to eat you asparagus”. His mother Caroline often sends him to his room because of this but Rumpus always thinks it is worth it. He has a passion for football but would rather tease his sister than play.

Asparagus Macavity

Aspargus Macavity hates it when her brother Rumpus teases her about her name. Some of her new nicknames include Veggie and Asparagus wishy washy because she really dislikes washing the dishes.

But with a friend like Megan Appleseed, she will soon find an instrument that she wants to learn to play.

Skimble Macavity

Electra & Etcetera Macavity are quite quiet babies who like nothing better than to be taken around in their pram.

Evangeline fully supports her husband and children and tries to help them cope with any problems they may have.

Eddie Beaman

Eddie Beaman is a very outdoorsy sort of person and can always be found outside in the fresh air playing football or climbing trees. Football can sometimes get very muddy so he gets a telling off from his mother about the state of his clothes but Eddie thinks it is worth it. It embarrasses him when his mother is fussing around him in front of his friends though but knows that soon he will be allowed to go outside and play- after that collar is straightened and fur is brushed.

Lucille Beaman

Lucille Beaman is a good girl that does nearly everything to please her family, she does what she is told and a whole heap more and gets many rewards for her good behavior.

Emily Beaman

Emily Beaman is such a sweet little girl that everyone fusses over her. She enjoys this very much but sometimes wants her own space. One of her various interests is picking flowers and giving them to random sylvanians she sees.
