easterEaster is upon us and across the land thousands of children are planning on celebrating the story of the Resurrection by stuffing themselves full of chocolate. (Those of you idly wondering what the Easter Bunny has to do with the Resurrection of Jesus are cordially pointed to this explanation!)

IPcopy thought we’d take this opportunity to see what kind of Easter related IP we could find…

US Design Patent USD703277 discloses a set of toy bunny Easter egg ears. Of note however is the downright sinister bunny depicted in the drawings (see for yourself below). My 9 year-old son saw this picture and declared “he looks like he wants to kill someone”. Possibly not the angle the draftsman was aiming for…

Bunny

Of course to really convince your kids that the sinister Easter bunny is coming for them you need the patent pending track laying device in order to leave a trail of Easter bunny tracks across their bedroom floor. IPcopy suggests laying tracks that appear from nowhere and disappear into the walls for maximum effect…

Tracks

Children looking to make friends with the Easter bunny could do worse than trying the kit for supplying food to the Easter bunny Food

Anyone wishing to try out more traditional Easter egg related activities can have a go at painting some eggs courtesy of this early effort (1933) from Fred Fear & Company

The final word, however, has to go to US991804 which provides a dispensing mechanism for “endlessly laying Easter eggs”. The mechanism may conveniently be located in a chicken (Has that store really employed someone to pull the chicken’s tail feathers all day long?)

or at home in your very own Easter bunny. Behold the look of ….joy.. on the little tyke’s face.
