Bilby Pencil Case

These colourful screen-printed pencil cases designed by Ellie McDonald feature images of Australian bilbies.

They have been given the tick-of-approval by many children.


With long pinkish-coloured ears and silky fur, the Bilby has become Australia’s version of the Easter Bunny.

Bilbies are nocturnal, emerging after dark to forage for food. Using their long snouts, they dig out bulbs, tubers, spiders, termites, witchetty grubs and fungi. They use their tongues to lick up grass seeds. They have poor sight and rely on good hearing and a keen sense of smell.
