I’ve received countless comments and emails asking “So who is the bunny in the photographs? And where can I find one?” ….
Snuggle Bunny. That’s who frequently makes an appearance in photographs with Mayhem.
Snuggle Bunny arrived the same day Mayhem did. My aunt brought it to the hospital and we knew it would be a winner. It was literally the softest most perfect plush I’d ever felt. From the time Mayhem was able to hold onto something, Snuggle Bunny has been there. Those are truly the most loved ears you’ll ever meet.
When Mayhem was about a year and a half old, I realized we needed a backup. Because Snuggle Bunny goes everywhere with us. EVERYWHERE. And I was terrified that something might happen to it (like leaving it on the floor in the post office or on the skywalk in downtown Cincinnati …. yes, both have happened). But Snuggle Bunny happened to be a limited edition type of a bunny (made by Kaloo) and I had no idea just how hard tracking down a backup would be. But after approximately 863 hours spent on Google, I stumbled upon a toy store that was going out of business and liquidating their inventory. And they had one. I think it’s probably the best online purchase I’ve ever made.
So now we have two Snuggle Bunnies.
One is obviously a little more “loved” than the other. As in, I’ve had to stitch the ears, neck and foot to keep original Snuggle Bunny in one piece. But Snuggle Bunny 2 gets plenty of attention as well.
The original still goes with us EVERYWHERE. And gets bi-weekly baths in the washing machine. And is the most loved toy I’ve ever encountered.
So a couple weeks ago when we found out that our niece and her husband are expecting their first baby this fall, we just knew we needed to find a Snuggle Bunny to send to them. And this is what we sent them:
It’s a Kaloo Plume Rabbit, Medium, Beige (yes, that’s an Amazon affiliate link). They have a few different colors to choose from, but we opted for the beige because we don’t know yet whether a little boy or girl will be joining our family. And we were just too stinkin’ excited and weren’t going to wait on that little detail to send this to them.
For the record, Kaloo offers larger and smaller sizes of these bunnies as well as other animals (like bears), but we’re pretty partial to the medium size bunnies. There’s just something about those ears that Mayhem has always loved hanging on to and rubbing on her face to fall asleep. And the size is absolutely perfect for snuggling.
So there you have it, the 411 on the bunny in the photographs 😉
And for the record, this is not sponsored. Just stuff we love that we’ve received questions about and wanted to share. Over and out.
