We all love a classic kids book don’t we? It gave me enormous pleasure to read books to my kids when they were weeny things that I had read to me as a kid. Pat the Bunny (Amazon £8.05) is a classic “touch and feel” book for small children and babies and has been a perennial best-seller in the US since its publication in 1940.
It is not a story per se, but more a collection of things to do, such as pat the fake fur of a rabbit on one page, feel a bit of sandpaper that stands for “daddy’s scratchy face” on another, and look in a mirror on yet another. For its time – it was groundbreaking in it’s use of interactive elements.
To celebrate its 75th birthday, the beautiful, young, uber stylish, model, blogger, yummiest of yummy mummies (oh boy do I hate her…) Julia Restoin-Roitfield (if you don’t know who she is you are not worthy of my typing…) has curated a 14 piece anniversary collection for Pat The Bunny with 3 of her favourite brands, aden + anais, Bonpoint & Charlotte Olympia – that launches exclusively this Saturday at, where else…Harrods.
Items are also available to buy online. I’m telling you people – get busy as this bunny is hot hot HOT!
