The Baby-Sitters Club Wiki

The Benedict Family is Claudia Kishi's maternal aunt and uncle, Miyoshi "Peaches" Benedict and Russel "Russ" Benedict. They are first mentioned in Claudia and the Sad Good-bye. They make their first appearance in Claudia and Crazy Peaches.


Russ and Peaches were both at Janine's award ceremony in Claudia and the Great Search.

Russ and Peaches used to live in Stoneybrook before moving away. They move back in Claudia and Crazy Peaches. They stay with the Kishi Family for a month while they looked for a house. Peaches would try to spend as much with Claudia but ended up driving her crazy, until she sat back and apologized.

Their daughter, Lynn Benedict, was born after a miscarriage in Claudia and the World's Cutest Baby. Claudia will baby-sit for Lynn sometimes.

While John and Rioko were gone in Claudia's Big Party, they kept calling to check up on Janine and Claudia. Eventually, they came over to check on things and broke apart the party and grounded both Janine and Claudia.

Russ has family that comes to Thanksgiving with him and Peaches in Claudia and the First Thanksgiving. They are forced to cancel their plans with the Kishi's.

Extended Family[]


Their home looks like something out of Better Homes and Gardens. It's a perfect Cape Cod-Style house, with a white picket fence, a big backyard with a climbing tree, and a huge front porch. The master bedroom has a big bed and is next to the room with the sleeper couch. A bright corner room with gleaming hardwood floors is a study/guest bedroom. They have a grill in the backyard. They have lots of tall windows. The guest bedroom acted as Peaches study and a nursery.
