porcelain dishes and decorative are so artfully rendered and beautiful that you will keep them on display on shelves and table tops in your home long after your kids are grown. That is the beautiful of classic collectibles; even the pieces that are designed in children’s themes are transferable to other rooms until there is another baby on the way and another nursery to decorate.

It seems a shame to display your Wedgwood Peter Rabbit dishes, banks and plates high on the walls where a child’s hands can’t touch them. But it would be so much more upsetting if Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddleduck and friends were to take a nasty fall off the shelf. It’s a better idea to have plenty of plush Peter Rabbit toys for baby to play with and keep the breakable items where they can be seen and not touched.

If you are searching for a keepsake for a friend’s baby with a set of Peter Rabbit bedding in the crib, Peter Rabbit Wedgwood is the best baby gift idea I can think of that is guaranteed to thrill both mother and child for many years to come.
