Where does 🐰 Rabbit Face emoji come from?

The Rabbit Face emoji 🐰 was approved under Unicode 6.0 in 2010. On all major platforms, the emoji resembles the face of a rabbit facing toward the viewer. On most platforms, the emoji resembles a stylized drawing of a rabbit’s face with buck teeth and white or grey fur. The Twitter version of the emoji lacks whiskers, and the Facebook version has tiny teeth.

The Rabbit Face emoji 🐰 and Rabbit emoji πŸ‡ are commonly used leading up to and during Easter. Rabbits and bunnies are often associated with Easter, both because it occurs during the spring and because of the Easter Bunny, a legendary bunny who hides Easter eggs for children to find.Β The Easter bunny is based on a German holiday tradition brought to the US by immigrants, and it’s believed that theΒ short gestation period and reproductive speed of rabbits led to a cultural association with spring (when they mate) and fertility.

Many companies take advantage of this as well and use the Rabbit Face emoji 🐰 to promote rabbit-shaped decorations and Easter candy. As is the case with the Rabbit emoji πŸ‡, the Rabbit Face emoji 🐰  is also often used to refer to real and fictional rabbits and bunnies, such as Bugs Bunny from Looney Tunes.
