One has to be gentle in situations like these. That's why I recommend throwing it away while the kid's asleep, and when she asks where it went, tell her the rabbit's soul crawled out of hell in the middle of the night to take back its corpse.

Find a live rabbit that looks the same, replace the stuffed one, and say Mr. Bunny came back to life and will stay alive only as long as she behaves.

Taxidermy is odd. Generally I find it weird/creepy and don't know why people have it.

But... there's a stuffed bird that has been in the family for generations. His name is Billy. He was in my bedroom until I moved out. I will inherit him.

I guess it's part of that whole "people are full of contradictions" thing.

Give it a proper funeral and replace it with a nice, clean, oil based, overly marketed manufactured plush animal shaped soft thing.

Let her watch Watership Down and Pet Cemetery. If she still wants the rabbit after that you've got bigger problems.

Put a cigarette in its mouth.  Taxidermy animals smoking is always hilarious.

Leave it and her the fark alone.

If you don't like the way it looks then don't look at it. You're an adult, it's an inanimate object, so if it "creeps you out" that's your problem to deal with. Your daughter loves it, it's harmless, MYOFB. As for taking it to school, just tell her it's not appropriate to take it to school and you're afraid it will get damaged or lost.

MoriartyLives: Who in the hell gives a taxidermy animal as a gift?


My friends know me well enough to know that I would enjoy an absurd taxidermy animal as a gift.  I want a big, gaudy swordfish that makes my place look the home of a Miami Vice villain.

Failing that:

Butt stuff is probably inappropriate. Sleep with her father is a given, presumably.

This is a weird case: Neither of the usual remedies works.

The mother? Sure she's a whiny twat but that seems a bit drastic.

Which reminds me - where did that 'lucky rabbits foot' (from real rabbit) idea start?

Wait till the kid gets bored with it and then throw the both of them in the trash.

Norman Bates was into taxidermy and he was right as rain.

As a boy I had many toys disappear overnight. Sure I was hurt, confused, driven to tears. But I came from a family where mental health problems, abuse and alcoholism was first and foremost. I grew up, and I have never been convicted of homicide.

If anyone else thinks this is a good idea, I went by a dead (possibly decapitated) rabbit on my run today that I'd be happy to go pick up for you.
