Is a bunny a good choice for a family with small children?
When you have small kids and pets you are going to worry about them possibly hurting each other. The reason we choose Flemish Giants and later German Angoras and French Lops was because we thought they would be a safer choice with a 3 yr old. For one they are large and docile breeds. Their calm personalities are a plus with kids but also thier size makes it more difficult for a small child to pick them up and end up getting hurt or hurting the bunny.
I have been amazed at how great these big bunnies are with a small child. They run right up to my 3yr old and quietly endure and maybe even enjoy her hugs and kisses. They do keep coming back to her after all. Thier is something so sweet about a little child cuddled up with a big bunny.
