Little Grey Rabbit card game

Little Grey Rabbit Card game

So who remembers the Little Grey Rabbit series? They were written by Alison Uttley and illustrated by Margaret Tempest and are about a little grey rabbit (of course) and a cast of assorted animals including Wise Owl, Moldy Warp (a mole) and Fuzzypeg (a young hedgehog).

I haven’t got any of the books, although I know we had some as children and got them out of the library, but this week I found a Pepys game (strap line: Better than a picture book Grey Rabbit’s own game – for you) for 99p. The aim of the game is to collect counters and whoever ends with the most is the winner. Now I shall have to find someone to play it with!

    Any chance you could post pictures of the rules? I have the game but not the rules and I can’t find them anywhere.

  2. Lovely to see these! I especially like the suggestion of using matches for the counters in a children’s game. So old-school!

    We played this game years age with our children and now with the grandchildren. The cards are beautifully illustrated with charming characters. We use toothpicks in place of matches. I’d love to find another for sale.

    • Hi Marcia. Funnily enough I saw a new pack in a shop today – they are by Gibson’s Games.

    • Hi Marcia,
      I have a set that I found recently whilst clearing my Mum’s house & I was just looking around on line to see if they were worth anything. The box is a little battered & the top flap is missing but I’m pretty sure all the cards are there as they with the instructions fit tightly in the box. There are 44 in total. If you are interested – make me an offer!

    Wonderful to find this! I have two packs, but no instructions. I love the old-fashioned (and beautifully correct) grammar – and the utterly (Uttley?) non p-c use of “He” throughout!
