We put the real Easter Bunny and some children in the same room. It did not go well.

There is something undeniably sweet about a bunny. It might be the little nose, the pink pads on their feet or their adorable hold-to-your-chest-and-cuddle size.

It’s such a shame that when you take those feature and make them human-sized, the ‘cute’ factor tends to give way to ‘utterly terrifying’.

This is the lesson we learned when we dressed up as the Easter bunny for some adorable children.

Let's just say their reactions weren't what we were expecting.

See what happened in the video above... and then take a hop, a skip, and a run very far away.

Special thanks to Costume Box and Nubo for helping us organise this special day.
