The Mouse House
Hand Made In Japan
My First Mouse
The little fellow to the right is one of the many ornamental mice that were made by hand, and Made In Japan.
The ornamental mouse is made of styrofoam, and was designed with a loop to hang as an ornament. The little fellow was given cardboard feet for sitting upright on a table.
The small egg-shaped styrofoam ball is felt flocked, and then hand embellished with heart. Hand-made mice are timeless in appearance, and made to warm the young at heart.
The mouse of the orient was chosen for its personality, and serves as an example of what a hand-made mouse from the 1960s and 1970s looks like. This mouse is one of the mice my Mother hung on the Christmas tree when I was a little girl.
This page is all about hand-made mice and how they are made.
