Miffy 60th Birthday 2015

Happy 60th Birthday Miffy!

Can you believe Miffy turns 60 today?!

This lovable white rabbit has been adored worldwide since her creation in 1955, when Dutch author, artist and illustrator Dick Bruna drew a bunny whilst reading a bed time story to his son.

Bruna soon decided that Miffy would be a girl, as he preferred drawing dresses to trousers!

Miffy has delighted us in over 30 books, appealing to children from all over the world who join her on her wonderful adventures.

To celebrate Miffy’s birthday, Mercis bv have released a 60 second¬†film to¬†showcase the most iconic Miffy illustrations from the last 60 years…


Fun Fact:

Miffy is called ‘nijntje’ in Holland, which derives from the Dutch word ‘Koninijntje’ meaning ‘Little Bunny’.
