It amazes me as the years go by, holidays with my children have come with special traditions. With Easter upon us, I prepare to make the same pies, coloring eggs, visiting the same Easter Bunny year after year, and attending egg hunts in our neighborhood. As the kids are grow older, they’ve become accustomed to these little classics, and look forward to each. I hope they continue some of these events, to create special memories with their own families.
There’s something so wonderful about this time of year. The cold weather finally breaks as spring approaches. Easter season is especially anticipated because we celebrate Gemma’a birthday during the same time. Usually the holiday is just a day apart from one another, but this year we actually have a week to spread out the celebrations. This birthday is a big one for her this year. Five years old!
I love making easter baskets, and naturally, you can’t have an easter basket without putting a bunny inside. There are tons of stuffed animals to choose from, but I always want to find something special. I remember discovering Apple Park stuffed animals when Siella was just a baby, I picked up this sweet Bunny Backpack with floppy ears for her, which she still has today. I was drawn to the brand because they are environmentally responsible, and their high quality. Apple Park’s Farm Buddies were inspired by classic children’s toys, reinvented with the finest eco-friendly materials available. Each Farm Buddies come in two different sizes, and they are all so sweet it’s so hard to just pick one.
I just love gifting anything Apple Park to our friends, family, and even my own children because I know it is a quality brand that will withstand the test of time and probably become a collectible for them one day. The products are not only safe for small ones, they are good for the whole earth. Siella and Gemma have lined up all of their Apple Park Farm Buddies and are their most favorite.
And is if we didnt get enough bunnies for Easter, Apple Park also makes these soft and sweet, simple yet stylish, these Little Plush Bunnies in dresses! I was originally going to give one to our cousin Emilia, but Gemma loved it so much that I said she can have them as an early birthday present. Offered in three different styles, these bunnies are fun to cuddle, easy for little hands to hold, and with different dress options, they make for a fun collection.
This year, we are going completely out of our norm and celebrating Easter on the slopes in Vermont. Just so the Easter bunny doesnt get lost, we are celebrating Easter a week early, with baskets chuck full of Apple Park Farm Buddies. Which one is your favorite?
