An Owl Is Born


As a child, you may have wondered: “Where do baby owls come from?”

As you’ll see in this so-cute-it-hurts film, they don’t come from eggs, or nests, or even other owls. In fact, they’re created on a felted assembly line by friendly rabbits with glasses. Oh, the things you can learn on a Friday!

Created by animator Isobel Knowles and plush master Cat Rabbit, the fanciful factory portrayed in the film has inspired a storybook, merchandise, and a full roster of plush owlets, all available in the Owl Know How shop. I think I need a baby owl in every color!

Hard at work on the set.

Which baby owl is your favorite?
