WHAT: An expertly curated online store stocking the best and brightest children’s interiors, books and toys. Inspired by founder Nicky’s own much loved Bobby Rabbit that she was given as a child, products on the site are chosen with an emphasis on long-lasting quality and the idea that these pieces will form the memories of childhood that stay with you forever.

WHY: Bobby Rabbit seems to get better and better year on year. This stylish online store is a joy to navigate and the stock is always fantastic. Our judges loved the beautiful edit of products sent in by Bobby Rabbit, which were expertly chosen to complement each other and sum up the sunshine filled ethos of the brand. Everything on this site is chosen to stimulate the imagination and the store’s concept that a child’s bedroom should be a bedtime story in itself really resonated with our judges…

If you need interiors inspiration or you’re just looking for the perfect gift, head to Bobby Rabbit first. Their selection of books, furniture, toys and wall art is exceptional and Nicky has the most incredible eye for detail.
