How do you pronounce Nijntje?

RandomMess Sun 23-Feb-14 07:57:36

Hmmm sort of nine ch with the "ch" for church sound confused

Dutch is a fantastic language, learn the rules for pronounciation and then you can read it out loud.

Here's my daughters go at it. She's 4 and I have no idea why she decided to give Miffy a blue face but she's very proud of the spotty dress!

Wow that is an enormous lamp! Is there an alternative prize like a set of the books for those of us who cannot accommodate both a child and a lamp the size of a child?

By DD aged 4 - she decided she wanted to a stripey one to go with her spotty one.

hm, seems all my friends know nijntje is from konijn, even my dad fact they don't seem to get it that I didn't know

The lamp is great! If you don't like the lamp maybe enter a different competition? Or give / sell the lamp to someone who does like it if you really want to enter and you win it?

RandomMess Sun 23-Feb-14 15:28:54

I am quite happy to give the lamp a home? I have seen them for sale and longed for one sad - take pity on me pretty please...

Even my dd is named after nijntje blush

This is Dd (4's effort).

She says its for Sunny days and that she would like to be 'Miffy Bunny'.

She's had a 'Miffy Bunny' since she was born, but it is now so ragged and brown looking I think even she would be embarrassed to have me take a picture wink

Here is ours, from my daughter aged 6. Miffy at a carnival! There is a letter to the side with the letter M on it.
Miffed dress has a picture of jiffy in the middle surrounded by hearts! A striped collar and leggings!

Jiffy should read miffy (apologies miffy!)

LynetteScavo Tue 25-Feb-14 21:29:25

DD (8yo) thinks Miffy needs a bit of sparkle.

This is my dd's - she is 4. smile It's my fault that the image is upside down. It's taken me days to get round even to this and then I can't get it right. Can you still see it?
