Miffy Miffy Money Box - Red
Corduroy Beige Miffy - Medium
Created by Dick Bruna in 1955 Miffy has since appeared in 30 books and spawned a range of goods sporting her iconic features. Known in Dutch as nijntje which is a shortening of “little rabbit”.
This soft toy is made from cord and sits proudly in an upright, or at least semi-upright, position. The eyes and mouth are stitched in black thread.
I’m not sure of the collective noun for a group of miffys but if you wish to form a warren of sorts we have this toy in various other colours as well as some larger sized toys and some keyrings.

Dutch author, artist and illustrator Dick Bruna’s iconic little bunny character, Miffy, needs very little introduction. First drawn in 1955, Miffy has appeared in over 30 books and appeals to children all over the globe. Uncomplicated and positive in attitude, Miffy’s adventurous spirit is infectious - for children and adults alike. Her original name is derived from a Dutch word which means ‘little bunny’ but, as its very difficult to pronounce, she became ‘Miffy’ to her international audience. This adorable little rabbit has been incarnated into many cute and covetable forms, from corduroy or velvet soft toys, to her motif appearing on china, stationery and textiles. She’s a timeless childhood icon, whose appeal is just as strong, no matter how old you get.
