Bocchetta Plush "Benny" Bilby

The Australian Easter Bunny

The bilby, also known as the rabbit-eared bandicoot, has survived where other desert-dwellers have disappeared, and it is one of very few medium-sized mammals still found in Western Australia's desert regions. Males may grow up to half a metre long, but females are smaller. Bilbies are largely solitary, widely dispersed and found in low numbers. They are comparatively slow moving but have superb hearing. They also have strong claws and are very efficient burrowers. In sandy soil they can disappear from sight within three minutes. In recent years, there have been calls for this strikingly attractive and uniquely Australian mammal to replace the Easter bunny.

Bocchetta Plush Toys: Creating Joy Since 1948
Bocchetta Plush Toys is a family operated business, proud of a heritage that began in a small toy shop in the town of Arona, Italy. Today you will find us throughout much of Europe, Australia, and we are fast finding new friends in the Americas. A great portion of our success is due to the far reaching imagination and meticulous craftsmanship of our founder, Giovanni Bocchetta.

In 1948, Giovanni Bocchetta turned his creative passions to toy-making. Armed with the skills of the traditional Italian craftsman, Giovanni tested the limits of his imagination as he set out to make the softest, most lifelike toys a child will ever know.

Year by year he expanded the business, carefully staying true to the concepts of realistic design and quality craftsmanship.

In 1992, the family moved their main office to Australia's Gold Coast. Today Bocchetta Plush Toys remains an example of imagination and skill passed from father to son.

Bocchetta Plush Toys are manufactured in one of the three carefully selected and controlled Bocchetta toy factories, using the technology and know-how that we successfully have developed over the last 62 years.
