The Velveteen Rabbit or How Toys Become Real is a children's novel written by Margery Williams and illustrated by William Nicholson. The story revolves around a stuffed rabbit that wishes to be a real rabbit, and he believes that his dream can be achieved through his owner’s love. The book was first published in 1922 and has been republished many times since.

The Velveteen Rabbit was Williams' first children's book and it was the most popular of all her children's books. It has been awarded the IRA/CBC Children's Choice award.

The Velveteen Rabbit was adapted into a video recording in 1985 by Random House Video; narrated by Meryl Streep, with music by George Winston. It received a Parents' Choice Award for Multimedia and was a Grammy award nominee. In 1976 it was very loosely adapted into the Rankin/Bass Productions Holiday Special, The First Easter Rabbit. In 1984 it was part of the "Enchanted Musical Playhouse" series, where Marie Osmond played the part of the Velveteen Rabbit. In 2003 it was also adapted into a clay-animated film by Xyzoo Animation.
