Tomboy Annie is seven years old. With her fiery hair, bright green eyes and cheeky dimples she is a passionate child, always giving 110% to every task she undertakes…though things don’t always go to plan!

Billy and Mabel Blue
Billy Name Meaning: Will, desire
Mabel Name Meaning: Loveable
Four-year-old twins Billy and Mabel are a loveable, cheeky pair – as the nursery rhyme states, ‘when they were good they were very, very good, but when they were bad they were horrid.’ Luckily for them, their wide, innocent eyes can win over even the sternest of adults, no matter how mischievous they get! Fun-loving and playful, they enjoy any kind of game, especially hide and seek. They love to paint with their hands and fingers, feet…even each other! These two young children are very close and supportive of each other.
