Bunnykins have been a super hit from launch date. Since 1934, emblems of bunnies on chinaware and even as figurines have graced nurseries, antique shows, and especially auctions. Is this because of the worldwide fascination with rabbits?
Partly so. Rabbits are simply lovable creatures. They’re cuddly, friendly, and can never seem to get conceited no matter how much attention they get. So as subjects, the world just can never get enough of them.
However, this global fascination doesn’t detract from the quality of the artwork. True, the artist behind the drawings isn’t as recognized. Nevertheless, none of these collectibles would have withstood the test of time without the quality recipe.
The moral of the Bunnykins story? Humans love rabbits both as pets and creatures. However, presentation is the other 50% of the success rate. The artsier the better. Sooner or later, the more creative presentation wins out–just like the bunny in the television commercial that goes on and on.
