Since its first publication in 1902, Potter’s classic tale of Peter Rabbit’s adventures in the English countryside has been beloved around the world by children and adults alike. In celebration of the book’s 110th anniversary in 2012, actress Emma Thompson wrote a sequel, The Further Tale of Peter Rabbit, which provided additional inspiration for the babyGap collection. Peter Rabbit books are published by Frederick Warne, an imprint of Penguin Young Readers Group.
“Peter Rabbit is a timeless character that generations of children have enjoyed, so we’re thrilled to offer a babyGap collection inspired by characters and scenes from the books,” said Lexi Tawes, Vice President of Merchandising for Gap North America. “We think babyGap customers will love the playful designs – from Peter Rabbit’s iconic blue sweater to the whimsical, bunny-inspired patterns – whether they’re looking for a special baby gift or the perfect addition to their own little one’s wardrobe.”
The collection, ranging in size from newborn to 24 months, is rooted in an assortment of soft knit graphic bodysuits, brightly colored denim, whimsical one-pieces and patterned dresses.
To celebrate the collection, Gap will host a special reading series for children and parents on January 26th at select babyGap stores in Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Toronto and Washington D.C. During the events, guests will be treated to a reading of Emma Thompson’s sequel, The Further Tale of Peter Rabbit, while enjoying activities and snacks that bring the world of Peter Rabbit to life.
In addition, Gap has partnered with Milk + Bookies, a non-profit organization that encourages children to donate books to children in need, to host in-store book drives where shoppers can donate their literary favorites for others to learn and enjoy. All books collected through the book drives will be donated to local Boys & Girls Clubs.
