How to find the Easter Bunny

Easter may be a deeply religious holiday for those who celebrate it, but for children it’s mostly about one thing, and one thing only: the Easter Bunny. Although the Easter Bunny isn’t as big as Santa Claus, he’s still on the list of things little ones look forward to all year round. And can you really blame them? Along with this magical creature comes candy and toy baskets and colorful Easter eggs filled with more candy (and maybe a few bucks if you’re lucky). So while they’re eagerly awaiting its arrival, download this Easter Bunny tracker app and make them even more excited – trust me, it’s worth having some space on your phone.

Called The Easter Bunny Tracker, this app and desktop website lets your little ones keep tabs on exactly where the Easter Bunny is on his journey around the world. As the app’s description playfully puts it, they use “volunteer field observers, our in-house engineers, sophisticated technology, and a complicated set of algorithms” to keep tabs on where the bunny is. Easter in real time every year.

The app was available for download on Android devices last year and is still available for Android, but this year it is also available for iOS users. Additionally, the Easter Bunny Tracker website will go live at 5 a.m. on Saturday, April 3, so you can let your kids check it out on their mobile devices or desktop.

The app is colorful and fun, and shows all the places the Easter Bunny has visited on a map using a variety of different colored Easter egg icons. There are also animated images of the bunny delivering Easter baskets that kids will love watching. It’s super realistic, and just a really fun experience for them. It adds a whole other layer to the anticipation that comes with Easter and makes the holidays all the more exciting.

The Easter Bunny Tracker has thought of everything, including an FAQ section that should satisfy the requests of the most curious little ones. Questions include things like “Where is the first place the Easter Bunny visits?” and “Does the Easter bunny fart?” And for kids worried about COVID-19, there’s even an answer to the question, “Has the Easter Bunny been vaccinated against COVID-19?” Spoiler alert: he can safely enter your home with all the candy.

If your kids are really into this kind of thing, the creators of the app have also created an illustrated children’s book called Following the Easter Bunny: An Easter Tradition. It includes stories from the Easter Bunny, as well as Easter Bunny Helpers (all the little animals that help the Easter Bunny deliver all of his sweets and basket), and more. This is a very nice early Easter gift!

Although you can’t use the app or website to track the Easter Bunny until April 3, you still need to download it now so it’s ready to use and for kids to enjoy. Learn more about Easter Bunny Helpers and the Easter Bunny himself. Good follow-up!
