Meet the Lopez Chihuahua family! The Lopez family is extremely cute, featuring friendly faces and the breed’s distinctive ears.
Like most Sylvanian Families, there are multiple versions of this family. They first appeared in Japan. The original Japanese chihuahuas are very recognizable because the mother and the sister have colored ears and do not have facial markings, though the father and brother look similar to later versions. Flair later released the chihuahuas in the UK with gripping hands. In 2014, the Epoch version of the Lopez family became available, this time with flat hands. Additionally, Calico Critters added the chihuahuas to their line in the US, which is the version I own.
The name of the breed originates from the Mexican state of Chihuahua. Father Cesar is proudly representing his Mexican heritage by wearing the colors of the Mexican flag (red, white, and green).
Official UK Biographies
Father Cesar Lopez is a highly acclaimed wedding planner, known for his unprecedented style and innovation. No detail is too small when planning the most important day for both the bride and the mother of the bride. “It must be a dream come true!” claims Cesar, the flawless professional he is.
Mother Conchita Lopez is the bridal consultant with meticulous organisational skills, dedication, and a love of her work. Her job is to discuss and help the bride-to-be realise her dream wedding, then to consult and plan that special dream day with her husband Cesar.
Brother Pablo Lopez is a little terror; always up to no good! He teases and upsets his sister and all her friends, endlessly chasing them with wriggly spiders and worms.
Sister Laya Lopez would like to be a wedding planner or consultant when she is older, so she spends hours helping her mother and father at work. In the evenings she likes to design and create new ideas for wedding dresses, cakes and flower decorations.
Joelynda likes to build castles with building blocks. She often builds big castles with her friends at the nursery as well. She likes to stack and play with building blocks so much that by the time her family realise there are blocks everywhere and nowhere to stand in the room. [Standing baby, not pictured]
Lola & Pepi Lopez are the twin babies of the Lopez family. They are no trouble at all for busy parents Cesar and Conchita and are very, very quiet. All they seem to do is eat and sleep, sleep and eat. They like wearing their favourite red and yellow outfits especially when they are off to a Sylvanian Wedding. (not pictured)
As often happens, the Calico Critters name and biography information varies from the Sylvanian UK version.
