So This Happened… Giving Bunny IN SPACE

Urban Threadster Valarie and her team at ARAWR went above and beyond and literally got a Giving Bunny up into the edge of space.

So awhile back on facebook, we were messing around after seeing an awesome video of a gal who shot one of her toys into space. It inspired us to post a joking challenge to invite someone to try and get a Giving Bunny in space, complete with cheesy photoshopped space-bunny image. If you don’t know what the Giving Bunny Project is, it’s basically a worldwide collaborative effort for crafty folk to make tiny plush bunnies and leave them all around the world to spread a little joy. You can read all about it in the original post. Since it’s creation, the Giving Bunnies have spread literally around the globe, landing on every continent including Antarctica. We never imagined it could go father than that…

Well, what we’ve learned is that we should never, ever underestimate the awesomeness of Urban Threadsters. Because Valarie and her team at ARAWR took it upon themselves to help the bunnies conquer (near) space, and it is every bit as awesome as you could imagine. The flight into space involved a 1200 gram balloon, and that tiny bunny made it to an astonishing 101,000 ft. That little plush is practically a little Felix Bunn-gartner now.

And yes, there’s video of that majestic bunny floating above the world, in his tiny little scarf. Good thing too, it’s probably pretty cold up there…

You can check out more details, photos, and video, including take-off and landing, over on the ARAWR website. A HUGE thank you to Valarie and her team for making the office seriously go into excited meltdown today. We are reminded again and again that we really have the coolest customers ever. And I suppose now, we’re going to have to update that google map. Anyone know how to add a bunny in space?
