Jellycat Bashful Bunny
Advantages: Soft soft soft.
Disadvantages: Not my son's favourite toy
When my son was born we were fortunate enough to be given a lot of gifts including several Jellycat toys. One of these was a lovely White bunny with long floppy ears and a pink nose which is the subject of this review.
The word I am most likely to overuse in this review is soft as I just cannot explain how soft this toy feels compare to some of my son's other toys. I confess I can't help stroking the bunny ears even if my son currently prefers to chew them!
The bunny has incredibly soft ears which flop down the length of his body. It has two black bead eyes which feel very secure and looking on the Jellycat website they comply with safety regulations here and those in America. The nose is made from pink material. The label confirms that all materials used are new. The body is triangular in shape with short legs that have some plastic pellets inside to weigh the feet down. This means the bunny sits very well on the shelf in the nursery. The long arms and ears make it easy for my son to grab when he is playing with the bunny.
Being a white bunny washing was a concern for me but luckily it can be hand washed. If this becomes your child's favourite toy then I would suggest getting a second one they can play with whilst the first is being washed. This is also a good tip in case the first one is lost.
This is a beautifully made soft toy and I would give it 5 stars but I am not my son who doesn't really play with the bunny much and prefers his Jellycat monkey instead. I think this may be because the monkey has more facial expression and at 6 months my son loves faces. Of course this means his mum can happily play with the bunny at the moment. I use it when reading stories to my son which involve rabbits. Children are all different so another child may absolutely love the bunny straight away. I think it does make a lovely gift for a nursery as the colour will suit any colour scheme and it can be used for display purposes only although I defy you not to stroke the soft ears!
As I explained at the startbof this review this was a gift but looking on the Internet I see they retail for around the £10 to £15 Mark and I would certainly pay that as a present for a baby.
Summary: Beautifully soft toy which is ideal gift for new baby
