Bunny-themed toys

Elevate your baby’s playtime with soft and cuddly bunny toys. Choose from plush bunny rattles, squeaky toys or a bunny-shaped teething ring. These engaging and delightful toys serve a dual purpose, providing entertainment while also stimulating your baby’s senses.

‘‘For my kids’ first Easter, I couldn’t wait to make them a basket, but obviously, they couldn’t have the traditional Easter candy. Instead, I found an adorable bunny sleeper and other Easter-themed clothes I put in the basket. I also found animal puzzles that they enjoyed a little later, as well as some bunny, duck and chick-themed soft stuffed animals and a blanket. There are so many non-food items you can put into a newborn Easter basket, and it’s really just for you the first year anyway.”
