There was once a time when Erin didn’t like soft toys. I tried, and tried, and tried to get her to be interested in them but it wasn’t to be. Then, one day it seemed like she woke up and her bedroom was covered in them. Erin has gone from someone who didn’t like soft toys at all to someone who has to sleep with at least 4 in her bed every night. I knew immediately that she would be a fan of the Sunny Bunnies*.
We were sent one of the Sunny Bunnies Giggle And Hop soft toys recently and we got Iris (the purple one). There are 5 characters to collect altogether including Hopper, Big Boo, Shiny and Turbo. Unlike some toys where more than 1 version is available, these can all be purchased individually on Amazon so you can choose which one you want to buy. Erin really loved getting Iris (she comes with a name tag) because of her being purple and the big red pink and white bow in-between her ears.
Aimed at children age 12m+, the Sunny Bunnies Giggle And Hop soft toys really are super soft and they’re lovely to cuddle. The main features of these Sunny Bunnies toys is that they giggle and vibrate which makes them hop around. To make this happen, you need to press their mouth, where you will be able to feel a button inside. Iris really does move around quite fast and Erin enjoyed chasing it around and seeing where it would go.
The large Sunny Bunnies (21cm tall) come with 3X AAA batteries included but these are really for test purposes. It’s a good idea to change these to make sure that they don’t run out really fast. Ours was working just fine when we got it but we decided to swap the batteries straight away anyway.
Once we had changed the batteries, which requires moving the ‘box’ inside of Iris, getting it back in the right place wasn’t really very easy. The button has to be placed just behind the mouth and although we tried to do that, the minute it was pressed and Iris started vibrating and bouncing around, the box inside just didn’t stay where it was supposed to. This was quite frustrating for Erin as she couldn’t find the button a lot of the time and sometimes when she did, it would get stuck and be sort of on a repeat.
While Iris is fun to play with a few times, sadly I think Erin might be a bit too old for this now. I imagine younger children will be able to have a lot more fun with the Sunny Bunnies as they are intended, rather than just having them as a soft toy.
