Where have you been Miffy?

A little while ago, Aaron picked up a little box of cookies for me at the Asian food store. He chose it because it had a little bunny on it and her name was Miffy.

I thought she was really cute and assumed she was a new Hello Kitty character. After some research I discovered I was very wrong.

Miffy first appeared in 1955, making her 20 years older than Hello Kitty. Created by Dutch artist, Dick Bruna, she is now the second most popular character in Japan, (after Hello Kitty).

Why have I not seen her until now? Turns out there is scads of Miffy Merchandise to be had. Everything from stickers to nightlights to rugs.

I need Miffy stuff.
