It was such sad news, but the fact that Dick Bruna brought joy to so many children (and adults!) through the creation of his happy little bunny Miffy, and is still doing so today, is so lovely and such a great legacy to leave behind.
Beau has previously received some goodies from the Miffy baby range, so this time it was lovely for the boys to receive things they could play with and enjoy together.
The Miffy My First Blue plush (£13) was a favourite of Beau's and he's had many a snuggle with it since he first laid eyes on it. I think Miffy's Peter Pan collar is such a lovely touch - who knew she was such a stylish little bunny?
The Miffy Nightlight (£15) is just adorable and is a lovely addition to Beau's room. I think it's so sweet with Miffy holding her teddy for bedtime. I'm a big fan of having fairy lights and nightlights on in the boys bedroom as I hate the thought of them waking up during the night and being in complete darkness, so things like this provide a bit of comfort for them and I.
There are many 'first word' books on the market, but you'd be hard pressed to find one much sweet than the Miffy's Word Book (£6), as it's done in the shape of Miffy - a lovely book to display on baby's book shelf.
My boys are big fans of Miffy and it's not hard to see why. She's an adorable, happy character who kids can fall in love with and cherish through her stories, plushies and other accessories, all available from Miffy Shop.
