Maileg Danish Designer Mice and Matchbox Housing

There is a Maileg Mouse for Everyday Life and One for a Treasured Christmas Gift

Maileg is an award winning Danish designer brand founded by Dorthe and Erik Mailil in 1999. For over a decade these clever and endearing animals have given us pause to choose our favorite.  The matchbox mice...we LOVE them, especially the amazing new twins  - are just too gorgeous for words.  Maileg life sized Pixie Christmas Count-down and Advent Calendars are timeless heirlooms for any child.

Holiday Pecan "Milk" Punch.
