Peter Rabbit Christmas Gifts
Peter Rabbit Christmas Gifts Make Christmas Magical
"Hello there! I'm Peter Rabbit and I was born in 1893, though I couldn't say that it was at Christmas! What I can say is that I owe my existence to Beatrix - Beatrix Potter, who has been like a mother to me. I can also say that every since my birth, children have loved me. Beatrix has put me in the prettiest books and drawn lots of pictures of my life and adventures and now there are so many lovely things that have my pictures on them - even toys and ornaments of me myself - it makes me so proud to see them.
I'm so proud that I've put them all into a 'Peter Rabbit Christmas Stocking' for you to rummage through so you can easily find the best Peter Rabbit Christmas gifts for your little ones!
My Peter Rabbit books and toys and plates and pictures and posters and all the porcelain make such lovely Christmas gifts because you can give them to a baby (what baby wouldn't love a cuddly Peter Rabbit soft toy or a baby set of cup, bowl and plate?), the books are great for toddlers who love to look at pictures of me and to listen to you reading the stories.
But what about older children? Well, I know for a fact that children never stop loving me. They treasure my Wedgewood Peter Rabbit plates, they keep my books to give to their children, and my little ornaments are what they now call Peter Rabbit collectibles (some say Peter Rabbit collectables - spelling! Not one of my strong points!).
Just have a look at the Peter Rabbit Christmas gifts that I've found below and put into this this Christmas Stocking - see if you wouldn't like to take me home for Christmas - I'd love to spend Christmas with you!"
This is My Wedgwood Peter Rabbit Christmas Plate - You can really see how nice it is in this big picture!
Wedgwood Peter Rabbit Christmas Plate 1992 (8")
"I made this picture nice and big because it is my Christmas favourite. I'll tell you what I love about it: It has Mom Beatrix's picture of me on it (that's the best bit) and I like all the Christmas writing because it is so colourful and Christmassy - it gets me right in the mood. I imagine having my Christmas dinner of roasted carrots, pickled raddishes, wilted lettuce and pan-fried cabbage with chestnuts - though I'm not SO keen on the chestnuts - Mum always tells me to eat up my browns.
I also love the picture of my comfey bed and the 'Merry Christmas' wishes - just like Mum Beatrix used to draw and paint.
The other thing that I like is that it's made by Wedgwood and wedgwood is famous, old and make classics - like me - I wouldn't say I was old - but I was created a long time ago and I'm a classic! I love classics.
If you want to know more about the plate - all that detailed and boring stuff - then look below and see what Amazon says about it - I'm not going to tell you about all that sort of thing - it's boring!"

This is a Bit About Me, Peter, And My Life
"I live with my mother, Mrs. Josephine Rabbit, and my sisters, Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-tail in a lovely, cosy rabbit hole that has a pretty kitchen, and lots of nice furniture. My mum has a shop with 'bits and bobs'. Rabbits have big families, of course, but my favourite relatives are my Cousin Benjamin Bunny and Uncle Mr. Benjamin Bunny.
Shall I tell you how I got my name? My other Mom, Beatrix Potter used to have a pet rabbit when she was little, and this rabbit was called Peter Piper. The very first time that I arrived was in 1893. Miss Potter wrote a letter to a little boy called Noel who was poorly. She wrote this story all about me and drew pictures of me to make him feel better - I think it must have worked 'cos now more than 40 million copies of The Tale of Peter Rabbit has sold worldwide in 35 languages.
How's that for one little rabbit?"
Peter Rabbit Books
Peter Rabbit a Winters Tale - Curl up together on the sofa with a good book
What better memories could you give a child than to read to them this magical book with its charming illustrations? Just picture it - cold outside but inside, curled up on the sofa, you, the children and Peter Rabbit. Timeless and a beautiful gift - the gift of love of books and stories. Magic!
It's always lovely to have a snowy book to read on a cold winter day. I think it must be sympathetic magic. There's no doubt, of course, that these stories are indeed magical.

Bid for Peter Rabbit Figurines on eBay - These little Peter Rabbit figurines are so collectible
"I think that ladies would like these little statues of me - or you could give them to a baby but ask its Mum or Dad to keep it safe for the future, because if you buy a nice statue of me, then it will give you years of pleasure looking at it (not that I'm vain though) and might increase in value.
You could start a life-time of collecting by giving one of my collectable Peter Rabbit figurines as a Christmas gift."

Peter Rabbit Soft Toys - Perfect gifts for a Christmas baby or a toddler
"When I was a baby I had a lovely nest and all my sisters, Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-tail to snuggle up to. Babies love soft and snuggly things so I'd like to think that your baby or little girl or boy had a furry rabbit to cuddle at Christmas."

More of My Peter Rabbit Posters - Perfect For a Peter Rabbit Décor - I'd like these in my bedroom
"Babies and and children have always loved me so much that I'm sure they would love a Peter Rabbit décor! Yes, what a good idea it would be to decorate baby's room with my Peter Rabbit posters, toys and pictures! Toddlers and older children would love to read my books and see me watching over them as they go to sleep.
You could put pictures of my friends and my rabbit mum up as well. Why not? We're all pretty and adorable.
This is my Mom who washed my lovely blue jacket and cleaned my little slippers and made us supper and who told us about the dangers of eating lettuces in Mr McGregor's garden - but did I listen? Well - that's another story and you can read about it in my books. I've put some of my best story books in this Christmas stocking for you to have a look at.
Will you be inviting me to your house this Christmas? I hope so! Love from Peter XXX— Peter Rabbit
Peter Rabbit on BBC Christmas Day - And a new TV series for 2013
"I found this review of my Christmas Day show - I'm a celebrity rabbit now! - by Emma Sturgess, but I don't think I'm allowed to tell you exactly what she says, so this is the gist of it (but I've added a sign post so you can see the real thing and get all the details of when I'm going to be on telly).
Emma says that CGI are making a new adaptation of my Peter Rabbit tales and you'll be able to see them in the New Year 2013. But today (I'm writing this on Christmas Day!) they are showing a Christmas special on BBC 1 so you can see just how nice the television pictures are going to look. The story is that I try to be as brave as my Dad, but when I go out with my cousin, Benjamin Bunny, in a terrible blizzard I get really scared. Wouldn't you? I had to go out, though, if we all wanted our special Christmas things 'cos Mr Bouncer's too poorly to bring them to us.
All my other TV stories are going to be super too. They are all based on the tales by my Mom Beatrix Potter. They show how clever and I am, how all the horrible things that try to trap and eat me are thwarted (great word that!) and how I get to grow up like my Dad. I do hope that you're going to watch them."
