Blue Bunny Bonanza

Posted on July 7, 2010. Filed under: Business Review, Review |

Often with big malls, we forget about the quaint shops that are extraordinary treasures in little out-of-the-way places. Don’t get me wrong. I love malls. (I live five minutes away from the biggest mall in Massachusetts). But I also love browsing little stores too, like the unique little shop in historic Dedham, Massachusetts called The Blue Bunny.

The Blue Bunny is run by the Reynolds family and offers favorite children’s books, art supplies, toys, puppets, greeting cards, fine art, and creativity workshops for all ages, as well as, signed books and original artwork by Blue Bunny co-owner, children’s book author/illustrator Peter H. Reynolds.

In addition to the fabulous shop, there are great events for kids. During the summer, there is a free drop-in storytime on Mondays at 10:30am for preschool aged children.  Every Wednesday in July at 11am, there is a special event in store, such as friendship bracelet crafts for kids 8 years old and up ($5 supply fee) on July 14th or make your own fabric tote bags for kids 6 and up ($5 craft fee) on July 28th. There are also other special events through the month with Peter H. Reynolds himself; a special Bedtime Storytime with Peter on Friday, July 16th at 6:30pm (free) or a creativity class with Peter from 11am-12pm on Tuesday, July 13th for kids 7-10 years old. ($20/pre-registration required.)

Keep updated with events at The Blue Bunny on Twitter, Facebook and their very own Blue Bunny Blog.

Located at 577 High Street, Dedham Square, Dedham, MA, this “little shop with a big mission” is just a short, and well-worth-it, drive from Boston and the Metrowest.
