Sylvanian Families Buttercup Friesian Cow Family
Meet the Friesian Cow Family, the Buttercups. Father Hornbull Buttercup loves walking through the fields and woods around Sylvania all alone. He likes the peace and quiet and gets all huffy and bad tempered if he is disturbed during his thoughtful strolls. Some children find him frightening! Mother Daisy Buttercup is very nosey, and likes to see and know what is going on. If she sees anyone out for a walk or off shopping, she will wander over to see what they are up to and have a chat! Brother Paddock Buttercup is very frisky, running, skipping and jumping everywhere, he just can't seem to stand still for long. All this pent up energy makes Paddock very good at the playground game of 'catch' but he is at a disadvantage when the children play a game of 'hide and seek'. Sister Annabell Buttercup does not like to rush anything. She walks slowly and gracefully, and has never been seen to run or even jog. Getting ready for school in the morning takes her hours. Add this family of Friesian Cow's to your Sylvanian Families collection.

All characters are grouped into families, with the company starting out with woodland creatures, before expanding into more domestic animals such as cats and dogs, as well as obscure ones such as penguins and meerkats.
Their world is set in the 1970s era, with most families being of a rural lower-middle class. Many inhabitants own successful family businesses or have professions such as teachers and doctors.
They started production in 1985 and were released in Japan and North America only. However, by 1987, their success ensured them to travel overseas to Western Europe. By 1988 they were a runaway success, even having their own animated TV show.
The range did experience a slight dip in popularity come the end of the 1990s, being discontinued in the UK. But it was soon revived by Flair and in 2007, they celebrated their 20th anniversary with a bang.
