The velveteen rabbit has a big dream. When he sees the wild
rabbits frolicking in the small wood behind the house, he wants to come
alive himself and be able to jump around just like them. The old,
shabby skin horse has explained to him that toys can actually come to
life if a child not only plays with them, but loves them more than
anything. How good that the boy, who got the rabbit for Christmas,
takes him more and more into his heart. Eventually they dream of going
to the seaside together. But then everything turns out quite
differently. Will the rabbit’s loyalty and love be rewarded in the end
and his heart’s desire fulfilled?
