Fabulous, my granddaughter is going to love this

Bought for my granddaughters birthday, it’s just perfect.

Beautiful mice

I am in love with this set and I know my daughter will be too when she receives it for her birthday. The mice are so well made, with their own sweet little eye masks and nightwear. The fabric textures and colours are so lovely. They will be treasured for years to come.

Fantastic service!

Purchased the Maileg Big Sister in her Beach hut, beach bag, bucket & spade & the extra outfit, was an ‘end of school term’ gift for my daughter for doing so well throughout what has been a crazy year! She absolutely loved them! A great addition to her mounting Maileg collection & a fabulous service from EVA&ROSE, packaged well & arrived promptly, have ordered before & would not hesitate to order again. Thank you.
