Back in 2008, we showed you the fabulous TV Tuffets of the 1950s. But now we can do even better.
This here is a large Mid-Century modern stuffed white bunny rabbit with a turquoise vinyl seat — because it’s a stool for kids to watch TV on!
Just imagine the joy of watching TV on an old television set with rabbit-ear antennas while holding the ears on this bunny!
This plush white rabbit is at least 15 inches long, roughly 13 inches wide, and the seat is approximately 8 inches off the ground. This stuffed tuffet of a kids chair was made by the Atlanta Novelty Manufacturing Corporation sometime between the late 1950s to mid 1960s.
And, yes, you can buy it from me. I’m downsizing my collections. (More details here.) And with all our pets this raving beauty is one of those gems that remains hidden to remain safe. But I do love it so… Better buy it quick — like a bunny — before I change my mind.
This green barrel-backed chair was one of a suite of six from Elvis Presley’s Hillcrest home in Los Angeles. It’s rather as one of these chairs was used in the 1970 family photo shoot with Elvis, Priscilla, and Lisa Marie. It is going up for auction on August 14. Via.
The Animal Chair collection by Máximo Riera.
I have a retro hydraulic panda chair on my porch. (What? You don’t?!)
It’s the sort used by hip and kitschy beauty salons for kids to sit on while getting a hair cut.
So, anyway, I’m out on the porch with the new puppy, a Basset Hound puppy named Mr. Oliver Puddington (photos can be seen on my Facebook page; videos are at YouTube). And I hear this noise… The softest of tearing sounds. I looked around to see what the pup had found.
There he is, at the base of the hydraulic panda chair, his nose on the metal hydraulic tube part, and I’m just in time to see him pull away — and hear the soft tearing noise as his delicate scenting-hound nose is ripped from it. Mr. Oliver Puddington just had a Christmas Story flagpole moment.
No yipes or whines. Not even when he repeated it.
While I about wet my pants.
Because puppies are slow and I guess he needed to make sure it was a bad thing to do.
Anyway, his tongue is fine. Though he still let’s it hang out of his mouth a bit while sleeping…
The better to make the oddest sucking sounds.
Puppies are weird.
