Tea Bunnies :: Playsets

"You're invited to a Tea Bunnies Tea Party!"

Tea Bunnies were originally produced by Tomy around 1995. Kidsview took over the production a year or two later, then Uneeda/The Beanstalk Group in 1999 (the toys remained unchanged). They were a series of poseable plastic bunnies about 4 inches high with flowers molded on top of their ears which came with large tea cups that doubles as shops. There were also a few playsets and some story books too.

Playsets

There were four playsets produced, one mailorder playset and one which appeares to have never reached the shops. Each playset came with one new Tea Bunny and the Wedding set came with two. There was also one special mail order playset offered on the Wedding set box for the Cupcake Nursery Crib playset. Like the regular Tea Bunnies, each playset included a dress, hat, bunny sized tea cup, large tea cup and saucer plus they also came with a variety of other accessories.

All packaging is Kidsview or Kidsview with Uneeda stickers. I've not come across any Tomy.

I've not come across any boxed, loose or catalogue images of the Ice Cream Social playset, but I do have confirmation of it being seen in Toys R Us (in clearance). It must have had a very small production run to still yet be undocumented anywhere on the internet!
