Miffy bento

Miffy Bento

It has been some time since I made a kawaii (character) bento, so I today I packed a Miffy Bento.

I do like bunnies, they are so fluffy and cute. One of my favourite blogs is Bunnyeatsdesign. Genie is a brilliant blogger and obsessed with food and bunnies. Every Tuesday her blog features her rabbit Tofu, who is incredible photogenic. A highlight on my Tuesday but on other days there are also brilliant recipes, do check it out! 

Anyway, to get back to Miffy.  Miffy was created by Dick Bruna (source about Miffy) in 1955 after telling stories about a little bunny seen in the dunes to his son. In the Netherlands, Miffy is known as “nijntje”, which derives from the Dutch word “konijntje”, meaning “little bunny”. Because “nijntje” is difficult to prounce for non-Dutch speakers and because there are so many different words for “bunny” in other languages, Dick Bruna’s little bunny is simply known as Miffy. The name doesn’t have any special meaning, but it is easy to pronounce in all languages (source about Miffy).

Initially featuring in picture books aimed at pre-schoolers she has since become hugely popular amongst pre-teenagers especially in countries like Japan where they even have a  Miffy cafe. Since 2015 there is also a Miffy museum in Utrecht, the Netherlands.

My Miffy was made from rice and holds a strawberry heart. There are two pieces of a courgette/salmon tart tucked away next to her, and the rest of the Bento was filled with vegetables. I also had some little bunny cutters to cut some carrot Miffy.

Cute and delicious πŸ™‚

    I read (on BBC news) that Dick Bruna, the author who created Miffy has died. So sad.

    So I just wanted to reblog my Miffy bento to share and remember his inspirational and adorable Nijntje (Miffy).

    RIP
