Betsy is a sweetheart spending her days calmly hanging-out and chit-chatting with her friends, unless marshmallows are involved, then watch out!  If the rare marshmallow treat comes their way she’ll flail her arms pushing everybody out of the way, like somebody trying to get a bouquet at a wedding, so that she can grab as many marshmallows as she can. She likes her marshmallow treats and nobody’s getting in her way! Now that Betsy and her friends Eve, Judy, Twinkle, Mila, Emma, CB, Chiny, and Scout are at Jungle Friends they spend much of their time outside enjoying the sun and exploring their ‘almost wild’ home.
