Labbit Cookies: Easter Edition


For Christmas, Ted DeCoste made a wonderful labbit shaped cookie cutter and made labbit butt sugar cookies in festive red, green and white. For Easter, Pipkin got a visit from Ishtar Labbit, and they got together to work on some spring coloured labbit cookies.


Pipkin particularly wanted some cookies with mustaches, so they worked out a template together. They decided that making a tiny cookie cutter in that shape would take about as long as it would to hand shape mustaches, so instead, they used their paws to roll out mustaches. Then they iced the cookies in different colours: pink, mint green, lilac, and buttery yellow. Don't they look delicious?

  2. The last picture of a dark purple labbit reminds me of the dark purple labbit I lost.....On the bright side, these labbits are edible(finally, something delicious and adorable that you eat).

    1. Oh no, you lost a labbit? What happened? Hopefully he is making someone out there very happy, and he is with a good family. Did you pet him every day? Did he run off and join the circus?

    2. Sorry, I meant that there weren't many comments, and I assumed that you didn't have many people that went to your blog.

    3. No, there aren't a lot of comments. The number of people who leave comments makes up a very tiny percentage of my blog visits. (I do track my blog stats.) I have no idea how many pageviews/week/month constitutes popularity, but that's not why I have this blog. All the cool kids seem to have found it. (That means you! Plus, Frank Kozik himself is a fan so...all the cool kids have totally found it.) Cheers!

    4. I've gone and created an account so i can say hello!
      I just wanted to say that i am one of the ones that would visit and not leave a comment as i do not have a google account, but after seeing this discussion it motivated me to just create on so i could say a big hello and thank you from the United Kingdom!
      I discovered your blog around 2 months ago, and its saved in my favourites for me to visit back often. :)
      I found it through searching for somewhere i can buy myself a labbit - especially the one with the moustasche! I only discovered the whole Kidrobot thing at christmas when a friend got me a Futurama blindbox...from there i found the kidrobot website and forums...and from there the Labbits. Which i fell in love with and dediced i must have!!! Unfortunatley for me they are just not available anywhere in the UK. Long internet searches have come up with nothing and there is rarely anything on ebay. I have however found through a friend the labbit with the big nose glasses so i shall be getting him soon, and shall cross my fingers that more surface soon so he can have friends! :)
      So since discovering your blog i have majorly enjoyed reading about your adventures with your lovely labbits and hope you carry on - for those that do make their appearance known, and for those that visit but can't comment!I shall be doing now i have an account haha. Many thanks for this amazing blog! I love it! :)

    5. Hello to the UK! Thanks so much for spending the time to sign up and leave a message. Your comments really brightened my day!

      There used to be a kidrobot London but sadly they closed their doors about a month ago. The kidrobot forum is probably the best connection you have to toy collecters in the UK. I find trading/dealing with forum members a lot easier (and more fun) than buying something off a website. I've built quite a bit of my labbits' accessories collection through the forum.

  5. I was on the kidrobot forums looking for accessories, but I dont exactly know how to work it! Can anyone tell me how to but things from the forums?

    1. There's a sales section on the forum. Once you're signed up, you can start a thread called "WTB: labbit accessories" or something like that. Peruse the wanted section, you'll get a quick feel for how business is conducted there. What kind of accessories are you looking for? You have a 5" Happy Labbit?
