Besides Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny is perhaps the most famous of fictional holiday characters. Many of us believed in him until we reached kindergarten . . . some of us a few years longer (sure, I'll own up to it!). But besides being the bearer of Easter treats, what do you really know about this rascally rodent? We've rounded up some fun facts about Easter's cutest representative and some adorable photos that will make you want to believe all over again!
While chicks and lambs are cute, the bunny has it when it comes to Easter. Celebrate the holiday's favorite animal with everything from modern wall decals, prints, and clocks to traditional stuffed animals and books, all featuring some of the cutest rabbits we've ever seen. Some would make a great addition to your little one's Easter basket, while others can become permanent additions to your nursery. Keep clicking for the bunnies that have us hopping!
Just in time for this year's Easter weekend, two new Easter-themed movies have been announced — and they actually sound pretty darn adorable. Check it out:
Hip Hop — Sony Animation has preemptively picked up this script, planning to make it a mix of CGI and live-action. In the movie, "Easter Bunny decides to retire and hides out as a pet with a suburban family, turning their lives upside down. The tone is being described as along the lines of Alvin and the Chipmunks and The Santa Clause."
I Hop — No, not like the house of pancakes (though I kinda hope they do some kind of promotional tie-in). Anyway, this is the one that I think sounds cutest: "In I Hop, the Easter Bunny is hit by a car driven by a slacker. When the bunny can't hop because his leg is broken, the driver must train to take over the job and save Easter." Though it's probably meant to be a kids' movie, I kinda wish Seth Rogen would play the slacker in I Hop.
Looks like 2010 is gonna be hoppin'. (Ugh. Sorry, sorry!)
