Introducing: the Neptune family of Neptune Island Lighthouse.

Welcome to the Neptune family!

Father Caspian Neptune spends as much time as he can with his family swimming in the sea even during those cold, windswept winter days. After a refreshing swim he enjoys a long walk along the beach looking for 'treasure' - strange bits and pieces the sea has washed up on the golden sands. Caspian has quite a large 'treasure' trove displayed around the family home.

Mother Narrisa Neptune likes everything neat and tidy in her family home and her husband and daughter's 'treasure' collection makes for a lot of extra dusting and cleaning! Narrisa has decided this is a small price to pay for all the family time together on the beach.

Sister Shelly Neptune is a beachcomber like her father. Her love is sea shells of all shapes and sizes. The shell colours are so bright and shiny when they are wet but so dull by the time she has carried them home. So with the help of her father, they varnish the shells to bring out the bright colours, before adding them to her vast shell collection.

Baby Sister Sandy Neptune loves building and knocking down sandcastles and like the rest of her family is also a beach collector, she collects sand! In her clothes, in her hair, between her toes, everywhere!

(biographies from:

The Neptunes quite enjoy their lifestyle, living on a secluded island as Lighthouse keepers.

It gives lots of time for family

and hobbies

although there is often a bit work to be done

there is also much time to enjoy life.

While this is the newest family to join us here, I've had the idea to put them in the Lighthouse for quite some time. So I'm going to say, story-wise they have been living in the area for a long time, but are so secluded that many don't know that they are there.


  1. I think that the Neptune Family will be the perfect light house keepers.

  2. Oooh yes the perfect house for them. Hopefully they will get to meet some of the other Sylvanians soon.

  3. The lighthouse is the perfect home for the Neptunes but I hope they leave the island from time to time to meet other villagers. Are there more families living on that island?
