Chase The Bunny

When LA artist Maria Preciado decided to turn her children’s book illustrations into toys, Chase The Bunny Designs was born. The handcrafted, beautiful soft dolls and whimsical furry monsters are sure to be well-loved and a lifetime favorite from the moment they are unwrapped.

Where To Buy: Chase The Bunny Designs can be found at local boutiques and toy shops like Treehaus and Miracle Mile Games and Toys, or via the online Etsy shop.
