Come Sit For A Spell, Kids, & Meet Mr. Mod Bunny Rabbit!

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.

Visions Of Sugar Plums Dance In Their Heads?

Meh. Probably not. But just try to get the image of these four babes from the 1940s out of your head! Each wears long johns or footie pajamas (perhaps with the old drop-seats, who can tell?) and snuggles a stuffed animal as all four of them lay in bed.

The Unintentional Skunk Collection

I was going to write about this at Inherited Values, but then I realized I have little to say about my odd, yet growing, collection of skunks. I don’t search for them, but they continue to find me. And soon, there will be too many to fit on the shelf.

The collection began with the the pair of vintage hand-painted coffee can lids with skunk decals.

Then I met “Stinkie” the skunk figurine. (I didn’t name him; his name is on the silver foil label on his tummy.) Then I found the pair of vintage masked stuffed toy skunks. I was gifted the skunk figurine with fur. By that point, when I ran into the vintage skunk planter, I knew I was officially collecting skunks. Before that point the items were parts of my other collections (vintage masked toys, kitschy stuffed animals, kitsch figurines, home decor, etc.), but now the skunks all sit together. If I have a favorite, it might be this vintage sawdust-stuffed skunk from Japan; I kiss his little nose and his little strawberry leaf hat.
