It is with great excitement that we present another GardenFun Exclusive: the beloved Peter Rabbit
from The Beatrix Potter Collection (Officially Licensed).

We knew this Officially Licensed Peter Rabbit statue existed over a dozen years ago and lo and behold he was recently discovered hiding above some lost shelves in forgotten warehouse. It's a collector's dream story, and this one has a happy ending. This Exclusive statue is the Original Series I: Peter Rabbit from the Beatrix Potter Collection,
by Frederick Warne & Co from 2000!
This exclusive Peter Rabbit garden statue is made of 100% Solid Cast-Resin and boasts a beautiful bronze patina finish. With a really nice weight to him, this Beatrix Potter garden ornament will look absolutely wonderful between your flowers, in your vegetable garden, or even indoors on the piano, mantle, or window sill!
The world of Peter Rabbit officially began in the early 1900's and continues to delight children of all ages today. Grandmothers and children both cherish this beloved icon and always remember when they first heard the Tale of Peter Rabbit.
True to size, this collectible Peter Rabbit garden statue stands 8" tall and comes in a decorative and commemorative Beatrix Potter Box. Each Peter Rabbit figurine also comes with a free optional 3" Metal Garden Stake
that can be screwed into the Rabbit base for additional soil stability when placed outdoors in the garden!
This Peter Rabbit statue makes for an ultra-super thoughtful garden gift and delivers youthful sentiment unparalleled!
More About Beatrix Potter:
Beatrix Potter (1886-1943) was born in England and filled many sketch books with studies of all kinds of animals in character poses.
The first of her books, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, started as a story letter to Beatrix's friend, five year old Noel Moore in 1893. Peter Rabbit was eventually published as a book in 1902 and proved so popular that in the next ten years another fifteen books were published with 23 total by 1930.
Beatrix was an avid student of nature and loved to draw and paint all the animals she could find, as well as mushrooms too. With money from her popular Peter Rabbit books, we was one of very few financially self-supporting ladies of that time period.
She bought land and became a farmer in England's Lake County, and eventually became widely respected throughout England as an expert on fungi and lichens and made discoveries about lichens that endure today. By any standard, Beatrix was a scientist.
Beatrix was also a respected watercolor painter, and is known today mostly for her beloved Peter Rabbit character and her collection of wonderfully illustrated children's books.
