Papa Mouse has just put another log on the fire, Baby is down for her nap, and Mama has laid the table for tea. Won't you come in and join them? The Mouse Family would be delighted to welcome you into their cozy little tree trunk abode!
Lovingly hand-crafted based on a vintage British sewing pattern, this enchanting fabric toy house is truly a work of art. Attention to detail and gallery quality needlework combine in a one-of-a-kind gift that will be treasured for generations to come.
The house is constructed to open up into two halves, bedroom and living room, which zip together for storage or transport. There are three curtained windows, two skylights, and a working door. In the living room, a brick fireplace with a roaring fire takes centre stage, with a comfy armchair on either side to curl up in. Mouse family portraits hang on the back wall of the bedroom, where baby sleeps in a lace-trimmed cot next to mama and papa’s big bed. Outside, three cheery window boxes filled with blue and white flowers and groupings of toadstools circle the little house. A puff of white smoke issues from the chimney. From the candle and open book on the bedside shelf to the miniature ladybug perched on a toadstool in the garden, each tiny feature charms and delights. You will never find another toy like this!
The house is 8 inches (20 cm) tall and measures 14 ½ inches (37 cm) in diameter at the rooftop. It includes the following removable play pieces:
- an endearing family of felt mice
- a pin-striped bassinet, with removable mattress and pillow
- a double bed, with lace-trimmed comforter and pillow
- three stuffed armchairs
- one throw cushion
- a whisk broom to sweep up ashes around the fireplace
- a log holder, with six individual pieces of firewood
- a wee rag rug, and
- a tiny table set for tea.
