Ever see a kids' bunny like this? Have any information on where to get one?

Can you help out? Ever seen something like this? It's a flat rabbit.

Full and more details here.

I don't know this person other than to follow them on twitter, but someone else I know now wants one of these.

Hah, it never occurred to me to come to Ask.Mefi. I guess that's what long-term Twitter usage does to you.

Thanks cjorgensen!

This one is really close too. I did a search for cuddle bunny blanket, my daughter loved hers.

They're called blanket buddies. My kids both had one very similar to the one the OP posted, but it had a white head and its blanket/body was a pastel plaid. They're great to use as a mini security blanket to take on car trips, etc. If I remember correctly, both of mine were purchased in the baby section at Sears, but this was at least 16 years ago (the age of my youngest).

Response by poster: No problem, ivey. You just let me know who gets best answer. I'll give out my own favorites. Actually, I kind of like all the links so far. The pictures on these sites are a bit "meh." So are any of these the right ones?

The animals in the "various animals" link are frightening!

Best answer: They're called Doudou (in french) and the company Kaloo makes a lot of them. Here's a source with a bunch of bunny ones that might be close.

it doesn't look like a blanket it looks more like a suckling or teething toy my niece had when she was an infant too you to really hold onto a doll yet. check out some of these other flat critters with the edges knotted

I've heard them called Loveys, just in case that helps.

Someone at Etsy makes a similar one and could probably duplicate yours if asked.

Oooh, otherworldlyglow got there before me. I was just popping in to say that I've seen the term "lovey" used for these things.

These look similar in style to yours (I noticed the same-color embroidery) but not a match.

Yes, lovey and doudou are common names for this thing.

I found a few, like these guys, for example, or this one, but none are as charming as flat bunny. This elephant maybe comes closest in the charm department.

When you find one you're looking for, buy two so you can get them into the washer occasionally!

Update: Flat Bunny came from a store in the UK called Boots. We're hoping to have confirmation of another one sometime tomorrow.

Update 2: It's from a brand called "Mini Mode" that appears to only be sold in Boots. We've found one on eBay, and here's another one.

Update 3: Flat Bunny stunt double has arrived. Thanks to everyone for helping track her down!
