Flopsy Bunny Christmas Ornament

Who doesn't remember the tales about Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail and Peter Rabbit! As a little girl, in addition to the Beatrix Potter book, I had the 45 record of the Peter in Mr. McGregor's garden. I must have played it a thousand times on my portable record player that folded up as a little case.

This new Flopsy Christmas ornament from Old World Christmas would make a great keepsake for Easter. Just package it in an Easter basket with one of the Beatrix Potter books sure to delight any small child. Also would make a perfect baby shower gift accompanied by a book.

 Flopsy 12350

According to Wikipedia: In The Flopsy Bunnies, Benjamin Bunny and his cousins Peter and Flopsy are adult rabbits. Benjamin and Flopsy are married, and the parents of six children called simply The Flopsy Bunnies. Food is not always readily available to the large family and they are forced to resort to Mr. McGregor's rubbish heap of rotten vegetables for sustenance. Mr. McGregor catches the six Flopsy Bunnies after they fall asleep in the rubbish heap and puts them in a sack, intending to sell them for tobacco. When McGregor is distracted for a moment, the sextet is freed by Thomasina Tittlemouse, a woodmouse, and the sack filled with rotten vegetables by Benjamin and Flopsy. At home, Mr. McGregor receives a sharp scolding from his wife when she discovers the vegetables and believes her husband is playing a trick on her.
