Laney helps her dad out at his cafe in Bluebell Town. She likes to make sweets and other confections for the guests of the restaurant. Laney is always in a good mood and will say "hello" if you take the time to talk to her.

Birthday: Summer 23

Family: Howard (father)

Favorite Outfit: Urban Outfit

Favorite Wild Animals: Cat

Disliked Wild Animals: None

Friendship Tips: You can pick up free Mint, Chamomile, Blue Magic Flower, Red Magic Flower, and Moondrop Flower in the mountain area. She also likes the flowers you can grow from seeds bought from Cam's Flower shop. If you don't feel like growing them yourself, Cam usually has full grown flowers you can buy.

Laney's favorite item, Cherry Pie, can't be bought from any store. You will need to grow Cherry Trees on your Konohana farm (there isn't enough room on Bluebell). You can buy the Cherry Tree seeds from Gombe starting in year 2. You will also need to get the animal produce maker on the Bluebell farm so you can turn Milk into Butter. On occasion you can get Butter from message board requests posted by Cheryl.

There are a lot of different dessert recipes she likes if you want something else other than flowers. You can buy many of them at Howard's Cafe in various seasons.

Purple Flower Event

screen shot

Time: Monday or Thursday, 11:00 am to 4:00 pm
Weather: Sunny or Snowy
Date Location: Town Square
Friendships: Laney at a Purple Flower or higher

Laney asks if you are familiar with the story about the statue in the town square. Many years ago, the statue was designed by the mayor at the time. The mayor was scary, even though his statue turned out really cute. Laney thinks it is weird that such a strict mayor made such a cute statue! She figures that his love for the town is what may have caused him to be so strict. Everyone in the town loves this statue.

Laney then asks if you like living in Bluebell.

  • Option 1: Yea! I like it a lot! (+3000 FP)

    She's glad that you like their village and she can't imagine living anywhere else. The more you learn about Bluebell Town, the more you'll grow to love it.
  • Option 2: Not really... (-2000 FP)

    That's too bad and she is disappointed. Laney gives you the excuse that she's tired and wants to head home.

Blue Flower Event

screen shot

Time: Thursday, 11:00 am to 4:00 pm
Weather: Sunny or Snowy
Date Location: By the Church
Friendships: Laney at a Blue Flower or higher

Laney made a Cheesecake based off of her own recipe and gives you a slice. She is thinking about selling it at the cafe. She'd like you to try it and give her your opinion.

  • Option 1: Thanks, I will! (+3000 FP)

    The cheesecake was delicious! Laney is glad that you liked it. She likes to bake, but she really enjoys watching people eat what she's made. She can't explain why it makes her heart feel so warm inside. She had a lot of fun with you today and hopes to chat again later.
  • Option 2: I'm not hungry. Sorry. (-2000 FP)

    Laney figures you can't eat it if you're not hungry and takes the cheesecake back. She'll go and give it to someone else to try.

Green Flower Event

screen shot

Time: Wednesday, 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Weather: Sunny or Snowy
Date Location: The Spring
Friendships: Laney at a Green Flower or higher

Laney is worried about something. She wants to know if you were sad to leave the village you used to live in before you came to live in your chosen village.

  • Option 1: Yeah. Terribly sad. (-2000 FP)

    It must be hard for you and she would probably feel the same if she ever had to move. She wants to say something else, but tells you not to worry about it.
  • Option 2: At first, but not now. (+3000 FP)

    She is surprised that you don't miss it. You have good memories of both villages and have grown to love your new village just as much as your old village. Laney feels better now. She wants to share baked good with people who come from all over and that might require her to move to the big city to open her own cafe. She loves this village though, and wasn't sure what to do. Laney is glad; knowing your experience gives her the confidence to feel she might be able to make it in the city after all.

Yellow Flower Event

screen shot

Time: Monday, 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Weather: Sunny or Snowy
Date Location: By the Church
Friendships: Laney at a Yellow Flower or higher, Georgia at a Purple Flower or higher, Howard at 25,000 FP (3 flowers = 20,000 FP) or more

Georgia found you and Laney next to the Church and tells her that Howard has been looking for her. Laney is suppose to be working at the cafe right now, not taking a walk! Laney had forgotten about it. You offer to help her work at the cafe.

At the cafe, Howard apologizes for asking Laney to help him out on her day off. He then notices that you are with his daughter and wants to know if you were spending time together! Laney explains that you are volunteering to help. After some thought, Howard agrees to your offer.

Once you've finished, Howard thanks you for your help. Laney hopes that they didn't tire you out too much.

  • Option 1: I'm too tired to move. (-3000 FP)

    Laney figured that farm work would be more tiring than cafe work. Laney tells you that you were a big help to them today.
  • Option 2: I'm fine. This was fun (+3000 FP)

    Laney is glad to know she can always count on you. You are probably use to working hard because of your farm work. Howard then butts in and suggests that you forget about your farm and work at the cafe as Laney's husband! Laney scolds her dad and apologizes. You were a big help today. She promises that the next time the two of you hang out, you'll do something more fun.
