May Gibbs’ Gumnut babies, Snugglepot and Cuddlepie Clutch Bag | PINKOASIS

While American have their Micky Mouse, Japanese have Hello Kitty, Finnish have Moomin, for Aussies, we have our very popular Gumnut babies and Snugglepot and Cuddlepie.

May Gibbs (1877-1969) is one of Australia’s most treasured illustrators and the first female cartoonist in Australia.

May Gibbs’ Gumnut Babies was published in late 1916 and was an instant hit. Other bush babies were born in the following two years, including Gum Blossom Babies, Boronia Babies, Flannel Flower Babies and Wattle Babies.

These bush babies were now firmly established as part of Australian folklore.

Gibbs later published The Complete Adventures of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie in 1918, which has become the iconic Australian children’s story till these days. It is a story of two gumnut babies and their escape from the villain Banksia men.

Gibbs’ beautifully illustrated fantasy tales brought the vivid sights and sounds of the Aussie bush alive, the stories are filled with excitement, adventures and magic that have fascinated generations of children.
