Happy Birthday Miffy!!

Hello Lovelies!

If you haven't already spotted on other blogs and on Twitter, there is a brand new Miffy cartoon starting this Friday evening on Tiny Pop. And I am so over the top excited about this!!

Ever since I was a little girl I have lived Miffy the little white bunny and all of her friends. Over the years I have acquired books, DVDs, socks, pyjamas, other clothes, bedding, a lamp, a mouse mat, various stationery, and much more that I can't even remember right now. I have about 8 different stuffed toys as well, tiny little ones and one massive one - I'm not even kidding it's the same size as Zoe!!

I'm thrilled that Zoe loves Miffy as much as I do - in fact the Miffy DVD is at the top of Zoe's request list at the moment and doesn't really leave the player! We love to read the Miffy books together that I had when I was a little girl - we recently re-read 'Miffy and the New Baby' before Emily arrived to help Zoe understand about her new little sister.

Hmm I've gone off on a bit of a ramble there, sorry!!

This year sees Miffy's 60th anniversary - in 1955 Dick Bruna was on holiday with his son and to entertain him started to draw a little bunny - and so Miffy was born! She's been in many books along with her friends and this Friday 2 October  they will all be staring in a new TV programme - Miffy's Adventures Big and Small - on pre-school channel Tiny Pop.

The show is airing at 7pm which is the perfect time for us to have a cuddle on the sofa and wind down on an evening ready for bed. There are 52 episodes to be broadcast each 7 minutes long so perfect for Zoe's short attention span. It's actually a CGI animated sequel to Miffy and Friends, the initial stop motion series, which is the ones we have on DVD.

If all that isn't exciting enough, to celebrate the launch of Miffy's new TV show, Tiny Pop has organised a 'surprise' Twitter party for Miffy, complete with party games, goodie bags and cake too! Join Miffy on her Twitter at http://twitter.com/miffy_uk this Friday at 1pm to celebrate!

Do you remember Miffy from your childhood? What was your favourite book?

  1. I had never heard of Miffy before and now I am seeing Miffy everywhere. I bet my kids would love it. Thanks so much for linking up to Share With Me #sharewithme

  2. I enjoyed going through this post a lot. I kind of have a similar kind of story. My 30th birthday is around the corner and I feel very old now. My friends were talking about rental spaces for parties the other day and it seems like there is something coming up for me. Anyways, it was good read.
