Mr Beavers Book - Part One

Mr Beaver was itching to get back to work, but he was having a serious creative block. He just did not know what to paint…

"I think I'm going to need another wastepaper bin!"

As he was daydreaming out of his studio window, he started to have an idea!

"I know just what to draw!"

He asked Michael to do a few posses on his tricycle, which he was more than willing to do.

"Look Poppa, one leg!"

He then went back to his studio and started to put all the images together; he had a great idea for a children's story.

"I'll get these ideas drawn up and sent away to 'Sylvanian Publishing inc'"

The House Next Door - Part Three

Mrs Walnut's flower boxes were looking beautiful. Just in time for the beginning of spring!

"The geraniums smell wonderful!"

Meanwhile, Mr Walnut was getting a tutorial on how to put up a fence from Mrs Beaver. She really is a dab hand at DIY!

"I'm going to learn a lot living next to you, Mrs Beaver"

Mr Beaver put his painting skills into practice, painting the fence was the last job to do.

"You missed a bit, Mr Beaver!"

Finally the scaffolding came down, the window boxes put up and the lawn all cleared and swept. Walnut Grove was ready!

"Thank you so much! We're going to love it here!… Now for the interior!"

Easter Holiday

It's time for a well deserved break! The little ones brought a hot-cross bun picnic to the construction sight on Good Friday, it was time that everyone relaxed for the Easter weekend!

"Oh little ones, thank you"

Michael was having the best time at the Easter Fair in the village square.

"I want that one,… and that one… and that one too!… please"

The Beaver family were looking their absolute best in their Easter Bonnets. Mr Beaver was looking especially dapper.

"Oh Mr Beaver, we look like Fred and Ginger!"

Michael couldn't help but drool a little when he saw the Easter cake stand!

"I think maybe you've had enough sugar for one day!"
"But it's Easter!"

Happy Easter, from the Beaver Family!

The House Next Door - Part One

Mr Beaver and Mr Walnut were discussing the state of the house next door. It was an absolute eyesore. Mr Beaver explained it had been up for sale for quite some time; this got Mr Walnut thinking.

"It's been on the market for weeks. You'd have to be insane to buy it!"

But Mr Walnut, who was always up for a challenge decided to surprise Mrs Walnut. He had a vision for the cosiest, cutest little cottage Sylvania ever saw.

"Oh Cedric, what have you done!"

Mr Walnut took advantage of Mr Beavers artistic flare and asked him to paint his vision for the house. Well Mrs Walnut fell in love with the painting and insisted they get to work ASAP!

"Right boys, get your tools out, we're renovating!"

Laundry Day

It was laundry day at the Beavers house, and Michael and Jerome decided to help Mrs Beaver with all the dirty washing. But the strangest thing slipped out of Mr Beavers trousers

"Momma! Theres fish in Poppa's pockets!"

But things only got stranger when Mrs Beaver opened the drum of the washing machine, after the last spin cycle, even more fish came flooding out!

"Where did they all come from??!"

The boys helped Mrs Beaver clean up the fishy mess. What a strange afternoon!

"Momma! I think this one's still alive!"

A very fishy BBQ

The sun was shining all over Sylvania, so Mr Beaver thought what better way to enjoy all the fish they caught than to have a very fishy BBQ with all their best friends!

"Anyone for a fish burger, fish kebab, grilled fish, fish wrap or fish with my special secret sauce?"

The Children absolutly loved all the fishy treats. But it was Mr Neptune that worked out the mystery of Mr Beaver's special secret sauce, he'd know that flavour anywhere, BEER!

"It's like a fishy lollipop!"

Mrs Walnut, on the other hand, was happy nibbling on the corn. Yellow food is her absolute favourite food.

"Are you sure I can't interest you in some fish, Mrs Walnut?"
"Oh no thank you. Wine and corn is my favourite lunch!"

Home time!

 After catching the biggest fish they'd ever seen, the boys decided it was time to head home.

"That's a whooper! Lets have a photo then boys!"

Their families were so excited to see them! The weather was so much warmer than on the coast! Mr Beaver proposed a garden party!

"Oh my goodness, look at the size of that fish!!"

The boys laid out all the pictures they'd taken from their trip. What a great time they'd had, but they were happy to be home.

"We've missed you all, like a lot!"


"Same time next year boys?"

Football and Afternoon Tea

Meanwhile in Sylvania…

The weather had finally started to warm up. So the Beaver family thought they'd enjoy the outdoors. Mrs Beaver and Renee settled down to a spot of needle point and reading, while the boys played football.

"Oh isn't this lovely, Momma!"

But the boys were kicking the ball a little too hard, first they knocked over the bin sending all the rubbish flying. It hit the bin so hard, it started off in the other direction!

"Oh no, Jerome, it's going to hit Momma and Renee!!!"

It hit the table with the tea and cakes and sent everything flying into the air!

"Quick! Lets hide!!"

But Mrs Beaver wasn't mad at all. With a little help from everyone,  the mess was cleaned up in no time. Then she took out two orange cones from Mr Beaver's tool shed and showed the boys how it was done!

"Wow Momma, you're amazing!"

The Fishing Trip - Part Two

The sea was pretty choppy, so the Mr Beaver and Mr Neptune found a little cove here the water was much calmer. The fishing there was great!

"Mr Neptune, can you eat starfish?"

After a long day rowing the boys pulled their boat back in to shore.

"Well, we're going to be having a fish feast tonight!"

The Fishing Trip - Part One

 The boys had been planning a fishing trip together for ages. As the Seafood restaurant was closed for the winter season, and Cedric Walnut was between jobs, they decided to take the opportunity and finally go.

"Brace yourselves boys, it's a bit nippy; but this is going to be a trip to remember!"

The sea was pretty choppy, but that didn't stop Mr Beaver and Mr Neptune, they love the water! Cedric Walnut on the other hand decided to fish from the shore.

"You go ahead boys, I'll wait until the water comes to me!"

Cedric thought he'd be much better use making up a base camp on the beach. There was plenty of time for fishing!

"I'm sure the boys won't mind if I crack into the beers!"

January Sales - Part 3

After a long day at the shops, the ladies decided to put their feet up and enjoy a spot of afternoon tea at Pippins Cafe.

"mmm, I could eat twenty of these salmon sardines!"

They decided it might be a good idea to get a treat for the boys, it might distract them from all the shopping bags! So to the doughnut store they went!

"I'll take one of every flavour… wait, better make that two of every flavour!"

With very sore feet, full tummies and empty purses, the ladies headed home. What a lovely day they had.

"I'm sure Mr Beaver won't notice one of the doughnuts missing!"

January Sales - Part 2

Mrs Beaver headed straight for the bargain bin at the Applewoods Department Store, it was full of little treasure!

"A book on handicrafts, I've been meaning to pick up a needle and thread for ages!"

Mrs Walnut was taking full advantage of the beauty counter assistant. 

"Mrs Neptune, come have a little pamper!"

But Mrs Neptune thought the makeover was a little bit on the heavy side!

"I thought you said it was going to be "au natural""

January Sales - Part 1

Now that the snow had all cleared, the girls bundled up for a day of shopping in the January sales! First stop, The Sylvanian Boutique.

"Oh ladies, I do hope there's some bargains to be had!"

Mrs Beavers eyes set upon the most sparkly diamond she'd ever seen! Unfortunatly, it wasn't in the sale. But the lovely costume necklace next to it was!


"I'll have to show Mr Beaver, valentines day is coming up!"

Yardley Walnut just couldn't resist the cute little pink heels. They would go perfectly with her silk pink party dress!

"50% off! I'll take the pair!"

Then Narrissa Neptune saw the prettiest bag she'd ever seen. A turquoise green bag shaped like a dove!

"It's so unique, I simply must have it!"

With their purses considerably lighter, they headed to The Applewood Department store to lighten them even more.

"Come on ladies, I hear there's a sale on at the makeup stand!"
