Miffy the loveable Rabbit celebrates a very special Birthday this year. Can you believe it has been 60 years since Miffy and Friends first entered our hearts and homes.
I was very proud when I was chosen along with a few other great bloggers to be a Miffy Mum ambassador, giving me the chance to share with you all the latest news about Miffy and Friends events and products coming up throughout the year. I would love you all to celebrate Miffy the bunny turning 60 this June with U, Me and the Kids, especially as my Birthday is in June too, although I am definitely not 60!
With so many exciting things in store to celebrate this bunny’s very special Birthday, I am excited to share all of the great things already planned for Miffy and Friends this year!

Miffy and Friends Book Reviews
I spent a lovely Miffy themed morning with my little Nephew Gabriel. I arrived with Miffy goodies to play with and was met with a big hug and a smile. Sporting a very fetching and ultra practical Miffy wipeable apron we started with Miffy draws a wipe clean activity book. A fantastic reusable, simple activity book perfect for those budding little artists.
The Miffy Outdoors sticker scene books, sticker activity books and Miffy dress-up colouring and sticker book are perfect for little creative Miffy fans.
