Those greeting cards are brilliant! Are they really official merchandise? Not that it doesn't look it but I'm just surprised there were ever greeting cards made of the TV series. It has a lot more merchandise than I used to think it had. Where is this kinda love these days?

Also, some of the expression are quite funny. They'd make good emoticons^^

Nice find Inlé!  I never even knew these cards existed.

It's a really nice art style, I think.
The first one rather looks like Fiver and Pipkin are playing hide and seek, and Fiver just stumbled upon Pipkin's "brilliant" hiding spot.
The Pipkin + flayrah one is pretty cute.
The last one is the best though; I especially love the way Fiver is looking at the camera.  Also that is a really small tree (or some huge buns).

I wonder if they also made some cards for Frith's Eve, er, Christmas.

Also, some of the expression are quite funny. They'd make good emoticons^^
If anyone wants to make any emoticons out of these...go ahead; they'll probably be added :mallow

The amount  of merchandise released for the series continues to amaze me. These towels look cute. Fiver and Pipkin seem to be two of the most used for merchandise.

That's because no one can seem to get the license to Speedwell and Acorn.

I'm afraid Cockatiel is right.  The 1999 series did merchandising the right way: there were figurines, plushies, books, magazines, greeting cards, a snow globe, VHS tapes, DVDs, and probably some more stuff.

Meanwhile for the miniseries, the only merchandise released is two boring books and some super expensive stuff.

As for Speedwell and Acorn...it would be pretty cool to have figurines of them.

Something, anything unique.
Bluebell, gives us some Bluebell stuff.
Not just Hazel and Clover for some reason.

Or even just a description beyond rabbit

Bluebell, gives us some Bluebell stuff.
:bluebell There you go!

Not just Hazel and Clover for some reason.
But Hazel needs a love interest, how else are we supposed to relate to him?
Polygamy ain't what it used to be...

How about a map of WSD...on a bedsheet!

Man, I do like that the miniseries has Bluebell at all, but I really wish more of his self from the books was there.  He's goofy, but he's not just goofy.  He's more competent than you'd expect.

Mugs? How about a mugshot of each of the main bucks? Front facing AND profile!

Their prisoner number can't go past 4 though.
