Once in a while a certain character comes along with the longevity factor. Miffy is one such rabbit, and I can remember her since I was small.
Celebrating her 60th birthday this year, Miffy was brought to life by Dick Bruna back in 1955 on a rainy holiday in Holland where he lived. He would sketch the little bunny in order to entertain his young son and then make up stories about her. Bruna decided that Miffy would be a girl when he decided that drawing dresses was easier than trousers!
In the books, Miffy lives with her parents in a little house with red shutters and a red roof among green fields. She likes to go on adventures with her friends to the forest or over the hills and discover simple things about the world around her. Miffy’s world is a peaceful place to be and is aimed at young children with lots of primary colours and designed in a simplistic style.
There are almost 30 different stories in circulation but Miffy has also made the small and big screen! And from 2 October 2015 at 7pm, Miffy’s Adventures: Big and Small launches on Tiny Pop, and will form part of their evening programming known as ‘Cuddle Time’. The series will consist of 52, seven minute long episodes which see Miffy and her friends exploring the exciting world around her and it will be the first time she is seen in CGI form.
In order to celebrate this launch, I have a Sensory Miffy to give away to one lucky winner. This toy is made from colourful textured fabrics and helps children to learn about the body. There are 14 interactive sensors which, when pressed, enables your child to hear what Miffy has to say. It is suitable for ages 6 months +.
