Franky Macwish - Bonwiwi
Super Brief Info:
Franky Macwish is the quiet, smart and one of the 4-year old triplet sons of Gavin and Lily Macwish, and the younger brother of Abbey. Franky’s most distinctive traits are probably his long messy hair and his tiny physique — he also wears his favorite monster hat all the time. He’s always being overlooked because of being the smallest of the group.

Franky is the smartest of the Macwish triplets. He was the first one who learned how to read, write and count! Franky is fond of building things. He enjoys playing building blocks and creating something cool with them. However, as much as he loves putting things together, he also likes breaking toys apart and gets very curious to see how the mechanics work.

Franky aspires to become a scientist, carpenter, architect, engineer, video game tester, cotton candy vendor and an astronaut, all at the same time. He’s already working on the blueprint of his dream amusement megapark on the moon!

Fun / Weird Fact:
Franky is a man (boy) of few words. The irony though is that everyone hears what he says whenever he tries to whisper.

Woodrow Macwish - Bonwiwi
Super Brief Info:
Woodrow Macwish is the multi-talented and one of the 4-year old triplet sons of Gavin and Lily Macwish, and the younger brother of Abbey. Woodrow’s most distinctive trait is definitely his slightly chunky shape. He’s not the most active kid in town and pretty much the opposite of his brother Ronray. He doesn’t enjoy doing activities that require too much physical effort. Woodrow aspires to become a very famous professional cupcake taster one day. When he’s in Qesigh, he can be found hanging out with Yagoogoo and Yoogaga most of the time.

Woodrow has a very good appetite and eats almost everything his mom puts infront of him – especially chocolate vanilla cupcakes! Besides eating, he loves to sing and enjoys making up his own songs; he’s actually very good at it. He also has a remarkable talent to imitate many musical instruments with his voice. Another Woodrow’s special skill is he’s able to control his farts to be silent or really loud.

Fun / Weird Fact:
Woodrow can blow multiple bubbles with chewing gum.

Qesigh [ pronunciation: 'qih-zaHy' ] is the magical world of the wibblets where wishes are produced; an invisible world that is only accessible to honest, obedient and well-behaved kids. The gate to Qesigh can be found in the Macwish’s backyard. The Macwish siblings help Bonwiwi and the wibblets deliver wishes to the deserving ones. < Read synopsis >

Super Brief Info:
Captain Squeak is the adorable and often confused cat of Mrs. Openhart. He confuses himself with a dog. He loves to play fetch with the Macwish boys, he can do other dog tricks as well. He tries to bark but instead he meows. He’s a big fan of any kind of cheese and a moderate to heavy (red) wine drinker. Captain Squeak enjoys playing with any kind of animals specially with mice; although he finds it hard sometimes to interact with them since he’s a cat.

The compass he wears around his neck was originally owned by the late and great husband of Mrs. Openhart. Based from her stories, her husband was a navigator, cartographer, explorer, captain and a true whiskey lover who sailed the pink and green seas. Mrs. Openhart believes that the compass has some magical powers. She gave it to Captain Squeak so he will always find his way back home.

Together they do shows at various parks, amusement centers or just at any random streets as magicians, puppeteers and jugglers. Unlike her jolly, loud and goofy husband, Lily is rather gentle, mild and possesses a wonderful tender nature. Her weakness: she doesn’t get mad. When she feels down or upset, she keeps it to herself until she feels better.

She has written and illustrated a dozen of books however none have made it to the public for purchase. She writes them exclusively for her children to read, and also plans to keep the books for her future grandchildren (and great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren, and great-great-great-grandchildren, etc.).

Gavin Macwish
Super Brief Info:

Gavin Macwish is the amusing father of Abbey, Franky, Woodrow and Ronray. He works as a magician, puppeteer, juggler and on rare occasions a street drummer. With his wife, Lily, they perform shows at various parks, amusement centers or just at any random streets. Despite his hardwork, dozens of trophies and super mad skills in juggling, he doesn’t want to become wealthy. He enjoys a simple life with his family and making other people smile.

Gavin loves to go fishing with the whole family but he has never caught any fish in his entire life. The closest to a fish he has ever caught was an empty can of sardines and a fishbowl. He brings the fishbowl every time they go fishing, as he believes that it’s a lucky charm. Another reason is that he has a container to put the fish into – just in case he catches one.

Fun / Weird Fact:
Gavin listens to Christmas songs all year long.

Mrs. Openhart
Super Brief Info:

Mrs. Openhart is a friendly old lady in her late 60′s. She lives by herself with a cat named ‘Captain Squeak‘. She owns a very old duplex, that looks like a castle and it’s located between two super tall buildings.

She has a huge collection of heart-shaped things. From a heart-shaped cup to a heart-shaped bath tub, and from heart-shaped heart paintings to a heart-shaped door, and more! In fact, almost everything you see in her house is heart-shaped — well except Mrs. Hartshape Openhart herself.

She lives on the second floor of the duplex, while the Macwish Family rents the first level. As Gavin and Lily Macwish go to work, Mrs. Openhart looks after their 4-year old triplets (Franky, Ronray and Woodrow) and tells them stories about Bonwiwi, the Wibblets and the magical world secretly located somewhere in the backyard. She always has stories to tell to the children, from out-of-this-world adventures to cupcake-headed creatures! She knows about all these because she claims that she has experienced them when she was the children’s age. However, she strictly warns them that they always have to be good children, in order to gain access to this delightfully fun world.

The Macwish brothers are very curious boys. They will search for this fun fantasy world themselves, and will eventually become best friends with Bonwiwi!

Fun / Weird Fact:
Mrs. Openhart celebrates her birthday every 14th of February even though it’s not her real date of birth — it’s on the 29th of February.
