Miss Flora Spider is a main character in Miss Spider's Sunny Patch Friends. She is a sunshine yellow-colored spider.
Miss Spider is the loving, considerate mother of the eight children: five spiders, a jewel beetle, a dragonfly, and a bedbug. She often teaches her kids life lessons after they have made mistakes. Miss Spider is also very aware of her children's feelings. Despite being the titular character of the series, she rarely assumes the role of the protagonist and is absent for several episodes.
"Miss Spider is the quintessential mom: warm-hearted, open, and extremely generous. Instead of eating other insects like most Spiders, she chooses to carefully prepare vegetarian meals for her family. For Miss Spider, motherhood is serious business. She diligently tries to administer the right balance of discipline and care to her kids. Knowing firsthand how powerful and transforming the gift of kindness can be, she shares this gift with both her natural and adopted children as well as all those around her."
