This week, we introduce you to the newest member of the Tinitrader family, Rabbit in a Hat.
It was founder and Mum of one, Tracy Proposch, who decided that her love and passion for her toys needed to be shared. Seeing her son, Ryder, still playing with toys Tracey played with as a child made it a no brainer for Tracy to share her toys with others outside her family. And so, Rabbit in a Hat was born!
The Rabbit in a Hat story dates back over five generations of wooden toys makers. This continues today, with each toy still being hand made to order by Tracy’s Uncle in country Gippsland, Victoria. Each toy is made with love and tailored to each customer’s needs.
Customers can request specific colours to suit their house or nursery, ensuring your toy will be perfect and loved for years and generations to come.
Pine wood is used to create the range of toys, giving the toys longevity to last generations. Tracy speaks fondly of her mother’s grandchildren playing with the toys she grew up with today, which continues to inspire Tracey and her Rabbit in a Hat journey.
A little bit about Tracy. Tracy’s background is in advertising where she has spent over 20 years in the industry. The long hours this work required were not appealing after the birth of Ryder. This, Tracy says, “many parents would understand… every moment is precious as they grow so fast”.
Being able to fully dedicate herself to Rabbit in a Hat alongside looking after her growing family has been a fantastic experience for Tracy and her love and passion for what she does is evident in every Rabbit in a Hat product we see.
We asked Tracy to tell us some more about her gorgeous toys.
The Wooden Walker
The Rabbit in a Hat Wooden Walker differs from other walkers in that it is designed not to tip, giving young children the foundation and skills to learn how to walk. The sturdiness of the walker will allow it to last for many generations and provide hours of fun. The walker is also perfect for storing and transporting toys and comes in various colours meaning you can customise it to suit your play room or home.
Tables & Chairs
The Rabbit in a Hat tables and chairs are great for meal or play time. The chairs are lightweight and easy to carry yet durable enough to handle the rough and tumble of everyday wear, tear and play. The table and chair sets come in two different sizes with two matching chairs. Additional chairs can be purchased separately and in a varnish or stain dependent on your preferences.
A gorgeous toy box is a must for any play room which can then be used in the future for storage or blanket boxes. The Rabbit in a Hat boxes are amazing and can be made to order in any size and colours or have a simple wood finish. Best of all, each box has safety hinges so no jamming of little (or big!) fingers.
Also of special note is the gorgeous pretend play pieces including stoves with appliances, clothes lines, iron, ironing board are more. It’s every mini pretend parent’s dream!
We could go on and on about the Rabbit in a Hat range. Every piece is truly special. Make sure you see the entire Rabbit in a Hat range on Tinitrader.
