Mice are not the type of thing that I’d normally rave about but I’m fascinated by the Maileg Mouse House. Aside from the fact that it’s effectively a dolls house for a mouse, albeit a doll mouse, I think this is a beautifully crafted, unusual toy for imaginative play.
It was nominated for the Formland Design Award last year (tres prestigious) and the house has been inspired by Swiss cheese. A Danish design by Dorthe Mailil, it’s full of little details like the bed being a large matchbox with a rug and pillow, a little welcome mat, and a chair and table. It even has a mini preserving cloth for a table cloth and thimbles for drinking cups. It’s exquisite!
