I am utterly in love with the Maileg line of stuffed animals. I can not say enough good things about these toys. They are well made, with a high attention to detail. They are sturdy, adorable, and just all around wonderful! These are high quality heirloom pieces that your kid will have forever.
Little Cool Toys sent us a lovely medium sized girl mouse, which has become great friends with both of my girls. At 11 inches I think she is just the perfect size! Neither too big nor too small. G-Girl told me with some excitement that she looks just like her ‘tend mousie friends. She also told me that Miss Bumpo Mouse is not for snuggling because she is not fluffy she is “thick”. It wasn’t a complaint, more of a statement of fact, as the doll is fairly dense and can actually sit up on her own. Regardless of what she said, five minutes later G-Girl was cuddling up with her new mouse. I love that she can get the mouse’s removable dress on and off on her own.
|Unlike on the smaller Maileg mice,|
the tail is not leather, but cotton.
You may remember that G-Girl was completely enchanted with her wee Maileg mouse until it mysteriously disappeared. I did end up buying her a replacement, a cute little brown boy mouse who is a bit of a drag queen as Miss Mousie left her removable skirt behind when she took off for Cherry Blaus.
I love the Maileg mice in both sizes. But right now I am particularly loving that the medium sized mouse is safe for my still needs to chew on everything 13 month old. The wee mice with their long leather tails are adorable but definitely not recommended for under 3 years old. I think these guys would be so perfect for tucking in an Easter basket. I’ve already purchased a wee Maileg rabbit and set it aside for G-Girl.

EDIT: Unfortunately Little Cool Toys has closed up shop. As the website is no longer active I’ve removed any links heading to it from this post.
We received a medium and a small Maileg mouse from Little Cool Toys. My opinions are my own and were not influenced by the company, or by the free product received.
