MTSC FIGURE OF THE WEEK #112: The Easter Bunny

Who else but Peter Cottontail aka The Easter Bunny could take the mantle of FOTW for Easter 2016? I mean the guy has been keeping kids 'jacked' on sugar for eons! We've got Peeps, Chocolate Bunnies & Eggs, Malted Milk Ball Eggs, and Jellybeans just to name a few. Let's not forget the joy of dropping the fizzy tablets in a pan of vinegar and dipping those hard boiled eggs into a colorful mess. Ahh the joys of the commercial side of Easter!! So this week we give a tip of the hat the Easter Bunny himself as accompanied by his lovely wife Mrs. Easter Bunny and represented in this Vintage Bunny Couple in a Model T Ford Candy Container by Rosbro Plastics who churned out cheap, colorful plastic dime store junk in the 1950s & 60s for every holiday imaginable. Good 'ol American commercialization at it's finest!
