“Once you are Real you can't become unreal again. It lasts for always.”
Here is one of the most classic and beloved children's stories, with the original illustrations from 1922—the ideal gift for baby showers, birthdays, weddings, and holidays throughout the year.
At first a brand-new toy, now a threadbare and discarded nursery relic, the velveteen rabbit is saved from peril by a magic fairy who whisks him away to the idyllic world of Rabbitland. There, he becomes "Real," a cherished childhood companion who will be loved for eternity.
