“We at Just Peachy are huge fans of Miffy, so the chance to work with such an iconic character is a dream to us,” said April Herrera, CEO, Just Peachy. “We wanted to create memorable pieces that our customers would want to incorporate into their daily wardrobe. The excitement we’ve received over this collection has far exceeded our expectations and we cannot wait to see how everyone styles their new Miffy pieces.”
And for some trivia:
Miffy was “born” on June 21, 1955, when Dutch artist Dick Bruna first drew the character to entertain his young son whilst on a rainy seaside holiday in Holland.
The series of picture books which followed used simple illustrations and rhyming text to explore the universal experiences of childhood, immediately earning Bruna international critical acclaim as an author and artist.
The Miffy books have sold more than 85 million copies and are currently published in more than 50 languages. Merchandise is sold across five continents, there are several musicals, a Miffy movie and a TV series.
