Smile: Playboy Bunny

Is that face familiar?  It may be if you are over 50 years old… and more likely male.  Who is this cute happy guy?  Why, the original Playboy Bunny, of course.

This bunny, which stands nearly two feet tall, is smartly dressed in his blue collegiate sweater and gold corduroy pants.  He is also holding his Playboy pennant.  We aren’t sure exactly where he came from, but he does have a tush tag that says Commonwealth Toy & Novelty Co. of Brooklyn, NY.  There is no zip code which would lead us to believe that he dates from the late 1950’s or early 1960’s.  He may be a souvenir of The Playboy Club, a store display for the clothing line, or possibly something you could order out of the magazine.  Whatever he is, he’s certainly happy.  Maybe that’s because he was at the forefront of the sexual revolution.
