Little brother mouse by Danish toymaker, Maileg, is incredibly sweet and would be sure to capture the affections of your child. Little brother mouse comes in his own ‘match box’ bed complete with bedding (a padded mattress and pillow with a woolen blanket in colours to complement). Suitable for either a boy or girl, little brother mouse would make a special gift for a child up to around 8 years old.
Little brother mouse is made from 100% cotton, his eyes, mouth and nose are embroidered and he has a cute leather tail.
His box is made from extra heavy duty cardboard with vintage style illustrations.
Playing with dolls provides a rich opportunity for your child to develop language skills and extend their vocabulary – from naming parts of the doll’s body and the clothing the doll is wearing to using verbs and action words for activities in which the child engages the doll, as well as exploring words for feelings.
It also provides children with the opportunity to make sense of their world, bringing it down to a manageable size and allowing them to describe and act out some of the things that they observe.
Perhaps most importantly, doll play can help children to develop skills in nurturing and caring for others. During play, the child engages in activities that makes them responsible for the well-being of their own baby as they practice caring for it. In carrying, holding, feeding, and rocking a baby doll, children are practising being loving to others.
Size: Little brother mouse is approx 10 cm high
