Gumnut Babies traditions

At one point or another, every child has owned or read one of May Gibbs unforgettable Gumnut Babies books. They have owned artwork, plates and other various merchandise, often passed down from their parents.

Preschool classes share the stories and base craft projects around Snugglepot, Cuddlepie and of course the Banksia Men. Schools are inundated with the famous Australian book characters for book week each and every year. Proving once more that Gumnut Babies are timeless.

    Those books are hilariously deranged. I never noticed as a child by when I read them to my kids, and the opening page as the gumnut baby crashing through the roof of the nursery and killing some baby aints, and the nurse says “Don’t worry, there’s plenty more” or something….I was quite surprised….and when they lead Mr Frog to his death and then say to the widow “We’re very sorry, we got you this hat!”…???
