Children love seeing their name in their surroundings, especially etched onto their favourite toy, as it offers a sense of independence and self-awareness, helping to carve their identity. This is also an excellent way to kickstart their reading journey and love of lettering.
Your bunny comes with an additional card from the Easter Bunny, a keepsake that will light up your heart and theirs on Easter morning. Our knitted bunny is soft to touch and makes the perfect playtime pal or bedtime buddy, for holidays, road trips, sleepovers, school, daycare, or under your Table Tent.
