Musical Bunnies!!

Every Bunny has a "Tale" ~ Part V


Aren't these Bunnies adorable? They aren't just Bunny figurines ~ they're musical bunnies and so they qualify as "functional art". I've always loved music boxes and had a Musical Jewelry Box when I was a little girl. You know the type with the tiny Ballerina that "magically" twirls around whenever you open the Jewelry Box. I guess it's considered Vintage now and I should have included a picture of it (even though it doesn't have a single Bunny on it).

The Bunnies on the left are the "Flopsy Bunnies" and the tune is "Everything is Beautiful". It features bunnies hopping around the base and the three Bunnies slowly twirl around.

Mrs. Rabbit (center) is holding her two babies and the tune is Rock A Bye Baby (of course). This Music "Box" is so unique because while the music is playing ~ the rocking chair actually rocks back and forth. I'm very intrigued by the "mechanics" on this one ~ so it's one of my favorites.

The one on the right is a familiar scene from "Peter Rabbit" and the tune is "You are my Sunshine". Peter Rabbit turns around as the music plays ~ he's so mischievous and he just can't stand still.

I LOVE music boxes! If I had the room, I could probably start a collection of them as well! I have one that came from my folks when I was a teenager, it plays "Sunrise, Sunset" from "Fiddler on the Roof" and it's a dove.

Your bunnies are adorable. I love the Peter Rabbit one. I sing "You Are My Sunshine" to my granddaughter, who is now 4. It was the first song I ever heard her sing, too.

Your bunny music boxes are just adorable! I've never seen any like those before!

I just bought a new book that is a "sequel" to Velveteen Rabbit. It is a real sweet story, have you seen this book?
