Who has not heard of Peter Rabbit? If you raised your hand, you have some serious catching up to do.
Peter Rabbit created by Beatrix Potter has probably been the most famous rabbit of all time. There are songs about him and recently CBeebies has also created a television series about the adventures of Peter and his friends all in the beautiful Lake District where Beatrix Potter comes from. These new adventures promise to introduce the modern generation to this magical world.
Lily Bobtail is a new character to the series and is actually based on Beatrix Potter herself. A strong character for little girls to identify with Lily is confident and clever while being caring at the same time.
In keeping with this, I was sent this delightful plush from the series – Lily Bobtail. The toy, brought to us by the Vivid group, is beautifully made with attention to detail. Press her tummy to hear phrases from the show ‘Brilliant’ ‘I know that for a fact’ and others.
She wears a dark pink dress with a lighter pink cardigan and a headband with flowers in it. Her long ears and beautiful big eyes make it a gorgeous toy for a little child.
Aeryn loves the little rabbit and takes it with her everywhere. She also sleeps with it.
It would make a lovely Easter gift for a little one. Available at all major retailers it is priced at £14.99 which I think is a really good price considering the quality of the toy. It is aimed at children aged 3+.
