Happy 60th Birthday Miffy! ❤️ 

September 30, 2015

We have all been children, and I am sure that like me you remember certain toys or characters from your childhood. For me there were many but I remember ‘Miffy the bunny’ clearly. The cutest white bunny with bright orange clothes! The vivid colours are etched clearly in my head.

  
Dutch artist, Dick Bruna created the classic children’s character, Miffy, in 1955 whilst on a rainy seaside holiday in North Holland. A little bunny kept hopping around the garden of his holiday home – he sketched it by day and at night Dick Bruna made up stories about it to entertain his one year old son. That bunny later became Miffy.

60 years later, there are 33 storybooks about Miffy, which have sold over 85 million copies and are translated in more than 50 languages. There is Miffy merchandise sold across 5 continents, a new TV series and a movie. Celebrations for Miffy’s anniversary will take place worldwide throughout 2015.

Watch Miffy on TV from October 2 2015!

Sony Pictures Television has announced the launch of a brand new CGI pre-school show featuring Dick Bruna’s classic character, Miffy on its pre-school channel Tiny Pop. Miffy’s Adventures Big and Small airs exclusively across the channel’s Freeview, satellite and cable platforms from 2nd October.

  

After launching on Freeview channel 126 in January this year Tiny Pop became available in 26.3 million homes. It has since more than doubled its ratings to become the third strongest channel overall for Kids 4-6, after CBeebies and Disney Junior.
With Miffy’s 60th anniversary celebrations in full swing this year, the new series marks the first time the iconic white bunny has ever been seen in CGI.

I absolutely love it when characters like Miffy that brought me so much happiness as a child can also make my children smile! I know my 5 year old will enjoy watching Miffy’s adventures as much as I did!
