Meet the McWalkies! The McWalkies are West Highland Terriers.
West Highland Terriers originate from Scotland, and the McWalkies are displaying their heritage by wearing traditional Scottish tartan. Angus, the father, is wearing a kilt and a velvety black vest. Even the babies are wearing tartan, which makes them extra cute!
The traditional clothing, along with the fact that the family was only released once (by Flair, in 2007), exclusively in the UK, makes the McWalkies a very collectible family.
Each McWalkie has a sweet, friendly face, and the babies have the added feature of a super cute floppy ear!
Official UK Biography Information
Father Angus McWalkie has a small holding in the foothills of Sylvanian, where he lives with his family, growing barley, oats, fruit and vegetables. Every Saturday morning the whole family goes to market with the week’s produce loaded on their cart. There is always a queue of eager customers waiting to buy his delicious wares.
Mother Muriel McWalkie is always busy running the family home and helping Angus, her husband, in the fields, orchards and garden. She even finds time to make jams, preserves, chutney, pies and breakfast cereals from her husband’s abundant harvest of home grown produce.
Brother Hamish McWalkie loves to take long walks in the hills around his home, finding new plants and shrubs he can list in his “I spy wild flowers” notebook. His favourite find was the very tiny wild purple orchid, which was one plant that his father had not found before him.
Sister Janet McWalkie wants to be a great poet and writer when she grows up. She spends hours scribbling notes and ideas in her ledger. No great works as yet, she is still very young, but a field of daffodils and a sky of drifting clouds are two thoughts she is working on at the moment.
Baby Twins Billy and Ben McWalkie are always bickering and arguing. “It’s my turn!” “We agreed!” and I’m not finished yet!” is all you hear from the nursery. Angus, their father, thinks they should start their own Nursery just so they get their own way.
This lovely family can be a little difficult to find, but they do appear at times on eBay. The McWalkies are very lovable and unique, and a family that often seems a little overlooked in the Sylvanian world. They’ve become a favorite it my collection and are a fun addition to any village. The McWalkies also have an entry on the Greenbearshire wiki.
