Calling All Ideas

We spend our days working hard to ensure that wee ones (and adults alike) feel safe, secure and loved – we call this Giving Glad Dreams. This has been our underlying mission for 35 years and it's what motivates us still today.
We design and create products that provide comfort, security and love to the special people in our lives.
In times of distress, we believe that one of the best things you can do is to ask for help – because you never know where that help might come from.
We love our Bunnies By The Bay community! During this stressful time we want to ask you, "What can we do to help?" We are a group of creative, driven people and there is nothing more valuable to us than supporting the ones we love.
We'd love to hear your ideas – and we mean EVERY idea, big or small. Please share with us your suggestions on how we can help others during this stressful time.
With love, The Bunnies By The Bay Team

Giving Back - Bunnies for Our Healthcare Community

Giving Back - Bunnies for Our Healthcare Community

Now extended through the month of April, all profits from the purchase of select Cream Nibble Bunnies will be donated to our local medical community through the Island Hospital COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund as they rally together in the fight against this global pandemic that has now affected every community in the world.

"Look For the Helpers" Quote

It can be overwhelming to think of how to make a difference when so many people have been affected, and that is where we have decided to think globally and act locally, by helping in our own community. We have seen and heard the dire need for additional PPE - personal protective equipment, and sanitizing supplies from healthcare workers around the world.  We hope with the proceeds from these bunnies we can assist our own local community's acquisition of these much-needed supplies, and in effect, it will assist other communities in their quest as well. 

While spreading some love and positivity and comfort in the world at this time when it is so greatly needed, we hope this will also inspire others to do the same.

Be the helpers! 

We will continue to look for more ways in which we can be the helpers too. If you have any ideas to share please reach out to us at

We are following the advice of the World Health Organization, channeling our concerns into actions to protect ourselves, our loved ones and our communities. First and foremost, among these actions is regular and thorough hand-washing and good respiratory hygiene. Secondly, keeping informed and following the advice of the local health authorities including any restrictions put in place on travel, movement, and gatherings. To keep safe from germs use regular household cleaners or wipes to clean things that are frequently touched.   Do this every day.
