Identifying Rainbow Sorbet Stuffed Rabbit?

I bought this toy at a Goodwill in Orlando Florida around 18 years ago around 2003. It was already used, and the tag was already worn at that point. It's a pastel rainbow sorbet tie dye type coloration of pink/green/yellow when clean. The feet have beads in them adding weight. The head and body have stuffing.

I have taken this baby all over the country with me since I brought her home. She's been my favorite stuffed animal since I got her. I think there's something about her weight distribution that just makes her extremely comforting and comfortable! I still sleep with her every night.

These two are similar in color, but look to be from different companies.

Both mention Russ Berrie, but the tags on rabbit toys associated with him appear to have stitching. The tag on mine washed off.

This one looks like an exact match. Says it was sold at/thru Walmart and this one sold for $28 (not sure the year)

I don't know how Pghgirl40 found the match to your stuffed rabbit but I don't think you'll find a better match anywhere than the one she sent a link to.

I would love to say this was hours of research and years of knowledge...but this one was just dumb luck finding a match right away.

I worked in Hallmark stores for years and knew it was not one of the big brands (Russ or Applause or Dakin) we sold because I don't remember ever seeing a carrot on the ear (which is just so cute, by the way!). I took a shot with a generic search...plush bunny + carrot + ear and there it was!

I hope this person that sold the piece was right that it was actually from Walmart! The same one could have been sold under other big box labels too.

Russ made many toys of this type during this time frame. I think pghgirl found the match for you

I usually buy one or two stuffed bunnies every Easter as the church has a 'give away' program (they feel Easter is an overlooked 'holiday' when compared with Christmas so all of the children receive bunnies after the traditional egg hunt. Surprise! Boys usually are the first to latch on to a soft bunny.)
No set plans for this year but children usually do not receive it well when plans are changed and they may be too young to really understand the reasons.

My daughter and I always love going to Walmart as they generally have a large supply of plush bunnies. I remembered seeing bunnies with this carrot on the ear but had difficulty finding one in the same colors. I did find this one but a Walmart manager told me they received different bunnies from this maker every year and he was sure they duplicated them after a couple of years.
(Some of the managers may not be as old as this bunny.)
This appears to be the same bunny model but was made in all pink and years later than your bunny I'm sure.

After setting this aside I searched again and found this one that was listed (and sold) on Bonanza website. It is most likely a later model also. So, I'm sure this model (with cute carrot in ear) is only sold by Walmart.

You may be able to find another one like yours or one in another color if you check on eBay to save your search as they will notify you when another one is posted. I'm not sure, but I believe eBay will continue to notify you about new listings until you cancel the request. They may notify you of similar but, then again, you may get lucky.
Happy hunting!
