Beatrix Potter: My 1st Jemima Puddleduck
on 9 November 2011
I love the Beatrix Potter books and have recently bought the box set to read to our baby when it arrives. We don't know if we are having a girl or a boy yet and so I ordered both the Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddleduck teddies and they are both absolutely beautifully made and so soft.
The eyes are actually stitching rather than plastic eyes sewn on so there is no chance of them becoming detached and the baby swallowing them by mistake. The jacket on the Peter Rabbit is attached all the way around so it doesn't come away from the body which means the baby won't be able to suck on it which is good. The cape's not sewn in all the way around on the Jemima Puddleduck (just sewn in around the neck) so I can see the cape being sucked on there however I think the reason for this is so that you can see her wings under the cape. The hat is fully sewn apart from the front peak on Jemima.
The teddies are so soft and beautiful that I'm really debating buying another pair so that I can keep two myself in perfect condition and give the other two to the baby. A really lovely idea and they look absolutely gorgeous sitting nest to the book set in the nursery. I'll definitely be buying some for my friends baby as well.
I have just purchased another Jemima teddy for my expectant friend and can confirm that the quality and beautiful design etc of the teddy are still excellent and as good as when I bought my first.
Yes I have bought yet another Jemima teddy but this time for my second baby for in her nursery to go alongside the Beatrix Potter books that I shall eventually read of an evening to her. Yet again I can confirm the quality and design are perfect and are still as good as when I bought the first one.
