- Fifi, Forget-me-not is the main protagonist who is usually the most cheerful. She says: "Hello! I am Fifi, forget-me-not!" at the beginning of each episode and at the end: "Bye! Don't forget to come back soon!" or "Don't forget to come and play another day!". When she forgets what to do, she says: "Fiddly Flowerpetals!" before describing the problem for the audience to guess. When she remembers, another character says: "Fifi forget-me-not forgot!". Sometimes her catchphrase when she forgets what to do is "Buttercups and Daisies!", and when something is wrong she says: "Diggly Dandelions!" A sociable character, she likes to cook and look after plants. Fifi lives in a watering can house. Voiced by Jane Horrocks.
