Really – would you want to put much else next to your baby’s skin?
And it’s not just about sweet (adorably so) toys – oh no, you can get your cot sheets and blankets, beautiful baby clothes, and some incredibly stylish knits too.
So when a gift box landed on the doorstep I opened the (very lovely) wrapping with high anticipation, expecting something a little special.
Well – it probably was, but I couldn’t tell immediately as it was whisked out of my hands by an excited 3 yr old, with a squeal of ‘OH! It’s a Beautiful Rabbit! Thank you Mummy!”
Beautiful Rabbit has been hanging around for a while now, and I have to admit that she holds a special little corner of fondness in me. She’s quite a plain little Rabbit, in an old-fashioned cloth style that I remember from my old childhood, with arms and legs sticking straight out, and a face simply embroidered on. But that’s half the charm. You notice her amongst the other, more contemporary looking toys – and when you pick her up… she’s just so very soft and pretty!
The first thing you notice is the incredible softness of both the blanket and the rabbit – easily the nicest thing to warm a newborn, this would make a perfect Birth gift. But Beautiful rabbit also has a little knitted dress and dancing shoes tied up with ribbon. Her ears are lined with the softest shiniest satin (perfect for small fingers to rub when they’re tired), and her little sleeping face is just darling.
So. No. We don’t like Beautiful Rabbit – not Very Much At All. We love her. Just a bit. ;)
The blanket that she came with is a good size for a crib/baby car seat, and will I’m sure become the preferred comforter as the baby grows.
Gorgeous. I’d quite like a grown up sized version please.
