Of Mice and Clowns

I am utterly smitten with the latest family of adorable mice and from Maileg and I know a two and a half year old who will be too! The circus mice, animals and their beautiful tent are just so whimsical and beautifully detailed that I can't resist buying the whole collection for Darcey.

For her 2nd birthday Darcey was given several of the Maileg little mice in their matchbox beds and accessories like the little stove, the pram and the teepee. She loves them and literally spends hours and hours tucking them in and out of their beds and giving them cups of tea! The little matchbox mice make perfect presents as they are so beautifully made and appeal to all ages. It's not just little girls that they appeal to either, Arlo is often found playing with them too.

I think my favourite mouse from the circus family is the strong man but I also love the clown on stilts and think that the animals are very cute too. You can buy Maileg mice from one of my favourite shops, Sisters Guild, who stock a huge selection of their products (amongst lots of other lovely toys and clothes). That's Darcey's 3rd birthday sorted then and its still 6 months away!
