I was delighted to receive a beautiful Rufus Rabbit baby rattle from the Little Chickie on-line store as a review item. From the moment I opened the package, I could tell what a charming, quality product this was. Presented in a delightfully decorated gift box with cute illustrations of Rufus and adorned with pink flowers, I was eager to look inside for the rattle. I then discovered that even the interior of the box was charmingly decorated.
The rabbit rattle within was beautiful. With a soft, velvety body in neutral colours, tinkly bell, floppy arms and legs, and floppy crinkly ears any child would immediately fall in love with it. Every detail was perfect with a well stitched on nose, tail and necktie. Initially I was a bit concerned as the body was white and I wondered how grubby it would become but on seeing that the product is washable my concerns were allayed.
The Rufus Rabbit range is a creation by Anna Danielle – a British designer who runs her family business in Derby. The rattle is a small example of her amazing work and other products can be seen on her website at www.rufusrabbit.co.uk.

A charming British product sold by a great British company. This would make a perfect gift for a baby shower, newborn or even Easter.
