If you’ve been following along with the latest news from Erstwilder HQ, you’d know that thanks to popular demand, we’re re-releasing our official Erstwilder x Peter Rabbit™ collection on Wednesday 26th February at 12:30pm (AEDT).
Those who know us might be thinking… “Wait a minute. Erstwilder doesn’t re-release designs. I thought they were all limited run?” Well you’re right, these designs aren’t ‘exactly’ the same as the first release back in February 2019, but, they’re not totally different colourways either.
The resins have been lovingly updated, but we’ve kept the colouring very similar to the first release for a few reasons.
The main reason is that as an official, licensed collection, we need to keep the characters true to their original style; taking creative liberties with Peter’s coat doesn’t sit right with us. We want to bring these cherished characters to life in the way you know and love them.
The second reason is that we seriously underestimated how popular these little animals would be (we know, silly us!). For example, our Peter Rabbit brooch design sold out in less than 5 minutes last time, leaving many (many, many!) people, hopping mad. So, we’re breathing new life into the 6 most popular pieces from the first release, in similar styling to their original counterparts, so that (fingers crossed), far fewer people miss out this time.
Now, your next question is probably something along the lines of “But how are they different? Can you tell us? Or better yet, show us?” Well that’s exactly what we’re here to do. Okay then, let’s hop to it!
PETER RABBIT 2019 & 2020 VERSIONS
Of course, Peter has returned. Keeping his colours true, his new resins include a vibrant bubble teal coat, a lovely soft ripple brown for his fur and a sweet bubble pink for his ears. giving them added depth, perfect for hearing Mr McGregor’s footsteps.
BENJAMIN BUNNY 2019 & 2020 VERSIONS
Peter’s courageous cousin is back as well, with a soft rippled brown for his fur, bubble white resin for his tummy, and a rich bubble brown resin for his coat, etched buttons and detailing and finished with a glittering red carnation tucked into his pocket.
JEMIMA PUDDLE-DUCK 2019 & 2020 VERSIONS
Our darling Jemima’s feathers are looking delightful in a rippled white resin. We’ve also selected a striking solid yellow for her feet and given her a bubble blue bonnet to match our pal Peter. And with her perfectly pearlescent pink shawl wrapped around her, she’s all set to protect her precious offspring.
MRS. TITTLEMOUSE 2019 & 2020 VERSIONS
Sweet Mrs. Tittlemouse returns with shimmering pearlescent resins for her little face, bow and ears. Her clothes feature soft swirled pink and blue resins and she carries her little basket for which we’ve selected a most appropriate threaded resin.
SQUIRREL NUTKIN BUNNY 2019 & 2020 VERSIONS
Squirrel Nutkin features updated detailing along with a bubble white tummy and a vibrant ripple orange for his fur, reminiscent of Beatrix’s watercolour illustration.
MR.TOD FOX 2019 & 2020 VERSIONS
Mr. Tod matches Squirrel Nutkin with his ripple orange fur. His rippled emerald jacket and light mint cravat make him a most dapper looking gentleman fox, even if we're still not sure if we trust him.
Another exciting addition to this release is the introduction of 3 gorgeous Peter Rabbit™ and friends scarf designs. One features Peter and his little radish, the next features Jemima with a sweet little bee, and the third features all six characters from the second collection release. All scarves are available in two sizes, as a headscarf and a neck scarf. Once available, you’ll be able to find them in our NEW collection, Peter Rabbit™ collection and in our scarves collection.
Finally, for the bunny obsessed, make sure to pick up a pair (or a few!) of our new bunny essential drop and stud earrings. Once they’re available you’ll be able to find them in our NEW collection, Peter Rabbit™ collection and in our essentials collection. Wear them as the perfect accompaniment for your Peter Rabbit™ brooches, or just wear them ‘cause they’re cute, just like you!

All that’s left now is to “… run along and don’t get into any mischief” 😉
