Fleur is the tiniest and sweetest, one of a kind rabbit in beautifully coloured mohair and designer fabric by Barbara Ann Bears

Fleur is the smallest of all our creations, she stands just 4.3 inches( 11 cm) tall, she is 3.3 inches (8cm) sitting and her ears span 3.8 inches (9.3 cm) across the top.

Fleur is a particularly tiny bunny rabbit, not only small enough to sit in the palm of your hand, she's probably small enough to stand on the end of your nose (we need to test this theory out, beware all visitors). She is a rabbit called Fleur, meaning flower in French, we knew you knew that, but to be on the safe side we thought we would mention it, she's a rabbit who loves flowers, to her flowers aren't pretty things that sit in vases, they're like small trees and shrubs, she can run between the smallest of them, you might just get a glimpse of her peering out every now and then, but you may only hear her scampering and sniffing as she investigates each bloom.

Fleur is mostly made from a beautiful, designer cotton fabric it has a floral design in many colours on a white background which you can understand better from the photos than any description I could write. Fleur's face and her tail are a fairly long and twirly mohair hand dyed in soft orange with a lemony backcloth and her tummy and the backs of her ears are a short, straight pile mohair hand-dyed in pastel shades of peach, blue, turquoise and pink. Fleur has hand dyed velvet paw pads which complement her colouring beautifully.

Fleur has the tiniest glass eyes, a sweet, little nose sewn from individual threads to match her colouring and a beaming smile, she is stuffed with glass beads and polyester stuffing to make her a little heavier and more cuddly.

Fleur is a very happy and loving rabbit, she's a 'go anywhere' bunny, a constant companion you can bring out at any occasion, if there is ever a lull in conversation... "Have you seen my rabbit?" and like a magician you can make a rabbit appear, and not just any rabbit a particularly sweet and happy little rabbit.

Fleur is the second rabbit from her design, having vowed never to make another a second one. Once upon a time we made a bunny pattern for the Teddy Bear and Friends magazine, it was a design for a 9 inch bunny and the pattern was full size, however it wasn't printed full size, it was printed just a little bit smaller and once published we had several enquiries wondering how the joints were going to fit when they were bigger than the bunny's head... We then received our copy and after a reaction very similar to 'oh' we realised we would have to make one ourselves to help the readers and give them the correct joint sizes. It was a labour of love and words related to passionate love were often heard "who's 'loving' idea was this?" "is this some kind of 'loving' joke?". The second time around it was a little easier, we knew what to expect and Fleur is made with bags of real love and affection, you can see it in her face, in her being.

We will enclose photos with Fleur and we are happy to put in a greetings card and gift tags, maybe a birthday card or one for another occasion, you can choose one from our greetings card page and let us know which card you would like. We will not send any chocolate eggs with her, that would be madness. 

As with all our bears Fleur is not a toy, she is an adult collectable and unsuitable for children under 14
