Miffy Loves New York City; Dick Bruna Loves Cashing NYC's Checks

miffy_loves_nyc.jpgStarting in the fall of 2003, NYC & Company, the official visitors & tourist organization for New York City, launched a marketing campaign to lure families to the city.

Central to that effort was Miffy Loves New York City!, a picturebook-cum-guidebook where Dick Bruna's silent little Dutch rabbit visits "30 family-friendly New York City landmarks," including Central Park, the Empire State Building, Ellis Island, The Plaza--oh wait, they've turned the Plaza into condos. [Hope that Michelin data in the back is up to date. If not, here's a tip: go to the Time Warner Mall at Columbus Circle instead. Look, William-Sonoma!]

I don't think it's a stretch to say that if Miffy behaves like this, not only will New York City love her right back, she'll probably earn enough to pay for her trip.

I love that book - I've bought it for many of the kids of friends who live elsewhere and were visiting New York. My question is, how did Miffy get a great Dutch Omafietsen (Granny bike) to ride around Manhattan in?
