Velveteen Rabbit

Marie did the movie, The Velveteen Rabbit, for her son, Stephen. She always liked the idea that if you loved it enough, it would become real. This series is her version of the bunny becoming real. Linda Henry sculpted all but the last of the series, Rock-A-Bye Bunny, which Marie sculpted. That face was then shrunk and used for Hula Hare, Lots of Love and Some Bunny to Love. The newest version of this concept is the Bit O'Bunny series which is a tiny size version. Rosemarie Rabbit is one of the few dolls with Marie's beauty mark that was not sculpted by Marie. She was named for Marie (Rosemarie) so she has the beauty mark. The beauty mark was then used on Hareloom Bunny and Blossom Bunny. Once Marie was sculpting and they decided to use the trademark beauty mark on her sculpts, they stopped using them on the bunnies. Kelly is the only one of the series that is not a plush body. She is a child in a bunny suit. Julienne Rabbit is the only one with a true animal face. The others have a human face.
