Kingdom Star Miffy is coloured in yellow and orange and features star motifs. Miffy is also wearing a crown.
The merchandise can be bought at Huis Ten Bosch’s Dick Bruna shop Nijntje, but the items are also available online for those unable to travel during the pandemic. The line-up includes everything from plush toys to pouches, stationery, and more.
Kingdom Miffy Plushies
Exclusive to Huis Ten Bosch, pick between the tulip Kingdom Flower Miffy or the crown-topped Kingdom Star Miffy.
