Emerson is one of the main characters in the WellieWishers line.

Personality, Description, and Facts[]

Emerson is an elementary aged East-Asian appearing girl with black hair worn in two twisted buns (depicted as dark brown in book illustrations), light skin, and dark brown eyes. Emerson's signature colors include purple and magenta pink. Her first edition outfit reflects her performing inclinations with more ballet styles; the new one more leans into fantasy depictions of unicorns.

She has an older sister and a pet cat; cats are her favorite animal. [1].

Emerson is the actress, dancer, and entertainer of the group. She is happiest when in the spotlight, which she loves, and performing center-stage. She feels the show must go on, and she'll do anything to make it so. She frequently makes poems and songs off the top of her head (more than the other girls, though they all tend to make songs and rhymes); she loves to write songs and make up new jokes.

Emerson enjoys saying things three times in a row, sleeping under tents,[2], stirring up excitement, the color purple, making friends laugh, and jumping into leaf piles. However, she can be thoughtless about what her friends are capable of, stubborn about how shows must go on, and insensitive when others struggle to do what she already can or don't want to (such as when she pressured Willa to perform solo in their "Fall for Fall Show"). She's often hungry and loves to eat. Emerson also can be too hurtful with her jokes and had to understand between telling a joke and being hurtful.[3]

The song "Go WellieWishers" says she rocks to her own beat, showing her playing air drums with drumsticks.


While Emerson is in all the books, she is the focus of The Muddily-Puddily Show and Emerson and Princess Peep.

Other Media[]

In the WellieWishers Animated Episodes she is voiced by Lola Salsbury Lipson.
