To celebrate the Global 35th Anniversary of Sylvanian Families we are welcoming back one of our favourite families! The Spotter family are meerkats who were originally designed for the UK Sylvanian Families range and first released here in 2010. Father Harry Spotter is the most alert and watchful – and it’s a good job too as he has to check that there are no wildfires in the forest. As this vital role demands his total concentration, the other Sylvanians have learnt not to take it personally if Harry ignores them completely!
Mother Beatrix Spotter on the other hand is always warm and friendly. Just like Rose Timbertop she loves children and is often babysitting as many as twenty at a time. She bakes them fairy cakes and reads them fairy stories – and she counts them every fifteen minutes to make sure they’re all still there! Brother Alfie Spotteralways has his head in a book. He often gets so absorbed in one of his adventure stories that he regularly forgets what day it is and has been known to turn up for school on a Saturday!
Sister Gail Spotter would much rather go for a long walk in the Sylvanian forest than read a book. She particularly enjoys strolling along by the river and picking wild flowers for her mother.
