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

Floppity Flip-Flop is one of the smallest of our creations, she stands just 4.5 inches/11.5 cm tall, she is 3.3 inches/8cm sitting and her ears span 3 inches/7.5 cm across the top.

Floppity Flip-Flop 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 spring bunny, always on the look out for Easter eggs which she hides in her little Gainsborough bone china (porcelain) cup. She is small enough to take anywhere with you, she'll fit comfortably in a handbag or pocket, but please don't take her to any shops selling Easter eggs, however rich you are you just can't afford it, you'll end up buying the whole stock. 

Floppity Flip-Flop is mostly made from a beautiful 'Peter Rabbit' cotton fabric which, as you might imagine, is covered in images of the little rabbit wearing a pale blue tailcoat, with little flowers in many colours on a white background. Floppity's face and her tail are a fairly long and twirly mohair hand dyed a pale pink, the top of her chest is a long fluffy lemony hand dyed mohair and her tummy, the fronts of her ears and her paw pads are a gently coloured hand dyed velvet which complements her colouring beautifully.

Floppity Flip-Flop 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.

Floppity Flip-Flop 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.

Floppity Flip-Flop is the fourth 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 send her favourite carrot, the little cup and Easter eggs (wrapped safely of course) with Floppity Flip-Flop, however if you live outside the UK we can't post the chocolate Easter Eggs.

We will enclose photos with Floppity Flip-Flop 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 Floppity Flip-Flop is not a toy, she is an adult collectable and unsuitable for children under 14
