Not long after being unwrapped on Christmas morning, the Velveteen Rabbit is cast aside to gather dust.

Shunned by the other braver, more glamorous toys, with expensive motors and flashing lights, he fears he’ll never be played with… but a chance encounter makes him the favourite tor, and with a little magic and a lot of love, he might even become real!

This piece contains integrated Makaton signing and is suitable for ages 3+. You can find an easy to use Makaton signing guide by clicking here.

Running time approx. 50 mins
