Here comes the Easter bunny with the Steiff Candy Rabbit

Bunny Ear Steiff

We fell in love with Steiff while expecting our first, and the first thing we bought for her was a special Steiff bear. That special bear has now been joined by dozens of friends on her shelf, and it’s one of our favorite things to collect as a family. I love that each animal or piece is representative of a certain season or specific time, and the newest Candy Rabbit from Steiff is sure to become a beloved friend as well.

How to rock your parenting day on the go

We live for our adventures as a family, and we find ways of fitting little adventures into everyday. You will find us out and about with kids of all ages, sometimes the kids will be exploring with us, on their own or assisted, and sometimes they are rolling with things and napping as we are on the go.
