Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Musical

What does lost feel like?

If you've ever felt lost, then you'll know just how Trixie's favorite stuffed Knuffle Bunny feels when he's left all alone. If you've ever felt loved, then you'll know just how Trixie, Knuffle Bunny, and their family feel when they're together.

It sounds so simple, just a quick trip to the Laundromat with Daddy, Trixie, and her beloved Knuffle Bunny. But, before you know it things go horribly, hilariously wrong. Chock full of adventure, song, and gigantic dancing laundry, Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Musical tells a tale of firsts: a stuffed animal's first trip in the laundry, a little girl's first words, and a Daddy's first time dealing with his child going "boneless."

Based on his beloved Caldecott Honor–winning picture book Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Tale, six-time Emmy Award winner Mo Willems joins Grammy Award–winning composer Michael Silversher to lovingly celebrate the heart and heartache that can only come from a family visit to the local Laundromat.

The stage production of this show is currently on tour. If you or your child would like to see Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Musical, please visit the tour dates page here to see when it is coming to your area.

But wait? What does Knuffle Bunny have to do with Rainbow Brite?

The composer for this production is Micheal Silversher, part of the song writing team from the Rainbow Brite Record albums “Paint a Rainbow in your Heart” and “Christmas”. Mr Silversher was also the singing voice of Twink on the albums!

If you would like to become more familiar with the Knuffle Bunny tale you can check with your local library or if you would like to purchase your own copy of the book, try the following link on! It is a very lovely story any parent can relate to and will love sharing with their child.
