"Real isn't how your made... It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you, for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real." - Skin Horse, from "The Velveteen Rabbit''

What is it?:

The Velveteen Rabbit 20" Plush Toy is a modern antique that stars in the short film adaption of Margery Williams classic childrens story. The Plush Toy reflects the integrity of the classic story through it's design, materials, and craftsmanship. It's made from eco-friendly Natural Kapok stuffing and Bamboo Rayon fabric to reduce it's environmental impact.

The Plush has already passed ALL safety testing required to ensure it abides by regulation. This is important as there are no mechanical or choking hazards on this toy and we can guarantee its safety for everyone.

What is SPECIAL about this Plush Toy?:

This Plush is also regarded as a modern antique, a 'blast from the past' of how Plush Toys of the early 1900s were developed. The Plush Toy historically reflects what the original "Velveteen Rabbit" of the classic story would have been, and for us vintage lovers it creates a great sense of nostalgia. For children the Plush Toy has been embraced by them largely due to the lightweight nature of the toy, the soft material it is made of and most of all that the Plush Toy is almost 2 feet tall!

The Plush Toy is made from eco-friendly materials Natural Kapok stuffing and Bamboo Rayon fabric which have proven to be not only sustainable materials but high quality as well. Historically, Kapok was used in plush toys and also the life vests that saved many lives during the First and Second World Wars.

This Project already has a unique history, as the film where this Plush Toy is from "The Velveteen Rabbit", has screened all over the world and has been nominated for awards. We have also supported domestic rabbit rescues in the making of the film and also through donations from DigiBook Proceeds. We are looking forward to continuing our support of rescues as the Project grows!
