BINKI (BUNNY!)
Definitely the softer side of Bear Bits! Irresistibly cute, Binki is an extremely cuddly and tactile baby rabbit made using extremely soft 18mm ivory alpaca from Japan. Obviously Binki is based on a design that we have used before, parts of the pattern have been altered so that the back feet are long and the ears have been extended too and supported by wire. Binki has 3D polymer pads on his feet. He also has small magnets in the chin and the end of each limb so paws and feet will stick together and also to the chin. His body is loosely filled with polypellets (it has to be loose so that he can get his toe to his mouth without his tummy getting in the way). Binki’s arms and legs are jointed securely but so that they move freely. This all means that he can be put in a variety of incredibly endearing poses and appear to “suck” a paw or the end of a foot – just like a real kitten (yes, a young rabbit is called a kitten)!
Length 21.5cm (8.5 in) not including ears.
