The innocent and adorable Miffy is definitely the world’s most famous rabbit. Her trademark is her x-shaped mouth. Miffy is extremely popular in Japan, so many people mistakenly assume that she is a Japanese creation. However, the Dutch city of Utrecht is in fact Miffy’s hometown.. Miffy’s creator is illustrator Dick Bruna. He created the character after telling his son bedtime stories about a bouncing bunny rabbit they saw one time at the seaside. This eventually became a series of picture books. Utrecht is home to the Miffy Museum, a must-visit for Miffy fans all over the world.
