MIFFY, THE LITTLE DUTCH RABBIT
Meet our newest friend Miffy! You might have already seen her in our stores. Miffy is here to stay and can now be a part of your everyday shopping list and special occasions too! You may be wondering who Miffy is and how she arrived at 99¢ Only Stores.
Miffy is a small female rabbit in a series of picture books drawn and written by Dutch artist Dick Bruna.
Miffy was created in 1955 after Bruna had been telling his one-year-old son Sierk stories about a little rabbit they had seen earlier in the dunes, while on holiday at Egmond aan Zee. Miffy became a female after Bruna decided that he wanted to draw a dress and not trousers on his rabbit. Depending on the story, Miffy can be a baby or four years old.
Since then, almost 30 books have followed. In total they have sold over 85 million copies, and inspired a television series as well as items such as clothes and toys featuring the character.
You can now find Miffy merchandise exclusively sold at 99¢ Only Stores. Whether you’re arranging a party for your children or preparing school lunches, you will find all things Miffy in a section especially devoted to her in our stores.
Stay tuned, we will have more information about Miffy coming soon!
