First Impression

by Claire feat. Ellie (3y 0m)

"We already own a few maileg toys so I knew the quality would be exceptional. When the rat arrived I was surprised, he was bigger than I imagined."


The Verdict

by Claire feat. Ellie (3y 0m)

"Maileg toys are heirloom quality and I would keep onto these for grandchildren to enjoy. I think the rat would make a beautiful gift for any child to introduce them to the world of maileg."

The KIDLY view

The full story

Rats get a bad press - they're actually very clever and lovely creatures. Maileg clearly know this, because the Rat in Cheese Box has all their signature charm. At 25cm tall, he's a substantial rodent in chic French clothing and his cosy cheesey home could become a bed, a vehicle or anything else your kid's imagination comes up with.

What's in the box?

  • Soft rat dressed in French inspired clothes. It lives in a big cheese box which easily can be a part of the play.
