Open up the door to the world of Beatrix Potter…
Renowned for her delightful children’s stories, Beatrix Potter brought a
collection of charming characters to life through the pages of her
books. The famous Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddle-Duck as well as all the
other darling animal characters have enchanted children over the
years…and now they’re jumping out of the tales and into your home.
In her tale, Jemima Puddleduck leaves the safety of her farm to hatch her eggs in secret (the mean farmer's wife keeps taking them away, believing Jemima to be a poor sitter), but she is led astray by a whiskered, foxy gentleman who wants to "help" her. Potter explained that The Tale of Jemima Puddleduck
was a revision of Little Red Riding Hood
, with Jemima, the cunning fox, and a brave dog standing in for the fairy tale's Red, the wolf, and the woodcutter.
Best known for her little blue bonnet and pink cape, Jemima is captured here in painted porcelain for the Jemima Puddleduck Rocking Money Bank. There is a slot in Jemima's cape for your child to drop coins, while the base of the money box is arched that that Jemima rocks back and forth like a rocking horse. The words "Jemima flew beautifully" are written in blue cursive upon the base, accompanied by a tiny cluster of flowers.
Jemima was devoted to her eggs...and now she will be devoted to your child's savings, too!
