Gerard gets a new home

Hello everyone! As you have probably noticed, I haven’t bought any new Sylvanians for a while. What I am currently doing in my village is trying to make my current families larger through adoption….

Mr Mrs Buttercup opened the door and stepped into the warmth of the orphanage. There were children playing and laughing all around them.


“Hmmmm, dear, which child would you like?” Mr Buttercup asked.

“Well, I would quite like a little baby or toddler.” replied Mrs Buttercup.

“This pup looks like a fine little man!” Mr Buttercup said.

Gerard looked up at them.

“Awwww, yes I think we’ll have him.”


Gerard ran up to his new parents and gave his mum a big hug. They held onto his weeny little paws and walked home….


So, Gerard is now Gerard Buttercup! Yay 🙂

Jessica’s Diary

Dear diary,

As I write this, I am sitting at the desk in the orphanage watching everyone else playing duck, duck, goose. I would quite like to join in, but I am determined to start a diary.


Today I went to the park with Ron to play football, but I put on my sports clothes so that my dress didn’t get muddy. I didn’t want to play at first, but it was so freezing just standing still and I just needed to warm up!

When we came back to the orphanage lovely Mrs. Buttercup had prepared us a mug of hot chocolate each. Little Gerard insisted that he had extra cream and sprinkles, the cheeky little monster! I love him though, I can easily make him giggle by reading his favourite book and doing silly voices. 🙂


Fancy Dress Day

Hello everyone! Today in Bluebell village, it is a very special day indeed….It’s Fancy Dress Day! Here are the Buttercup family looking fab in their costumes:

This is a day when all the people in Sylvania dress up and look silly, usually they donate money or gifts to the orphanage or another charity. Loving the new hair Mrs Buttercup! 🙂

Rainy day at the orphanage

One cold, rainy day at the orphanage the children had just had lunch when Mrs Buttercup made an announcement.

‘Children, there will be no outdoor playtime today due to the horrid weather. Instead we will make some music here in the warmth.’

They cleared away their plates and food, and they took out the instruments. Mrs Buttercup went over to her piano and pulled out the chair. She plonked herself down, and began to play. The little ones gathered round with their instruments.


‘That’s it, children’ said Mrs Buttercup with a smile. Gerard was thoroughly enjoying himself on his mini keyboard, while Albie was banging on his drum. The older children came to join them.

‘Now children, I have been teaching Lola to play the piano. How about you give us a demonstration?’ Mrs Buttercup asked.


‘Yay!’ shouted Lola’s best friend Jessica. Lola was able to play her song with no mistakes at all, and the little ones admired her talent. She was a natural when it came to music!

‘Can we do a game now?’ asked Gerard.

‘Of course! Who wants to join us?’ asked Mrs Buttercup. All of the children put their hands up, and so they all stood in a circle and played ‘duck, duck, goose’.


The end!

So, I think I have decided that the ‘house’ I made yesterday is actually going to be Bluebell village’s orphanage. I will probably add a bit more decoration, and a sign that says ‘orphanage’ to make it official.
