I owned Watson, my mini rex, for about three years before I passed him on to a young family member (he's still doing quite well). Watson was a beautiful, incredibly soft bunny, but--well--he really wasn't a terribly friendly bunny. As far as a rabbit can show that he's grumpy, Watson made it clear on a regular basis that he wasn't a fan of anyone, really. He didn't like to play, he didn't like being held, and he threw tantrums quite often, tearing up his cage and toppling over his litter box for no apparent reason.
As far as being a pleasure to see and hold, he was incredibly cute and soft. However, if you're looking for a bunny that's friendly and playful and wants to be held, my experience with this breed would suggest that you should look elsewhere.
