The ultimate Maileg size guide

Here is the ultimate Maileg size guide with everything you need to know about Maileg mouse sizes, Maileg bunny sizes, how to choose the correct size furniture for your Maileg mouse house and the difference between My and Micro sizes.

Maileg Mouse Sizes

Maileg mice come in four different sizes: Mums and Dads; Big Brothers and Sisters; Little Brothers and Sisters and Baby mice. 

Mums and Dads are 15cm tall

Big Brothers and Sisters are 12cm tall

Little Brothers and Sisters are 10cm tall

Baby mice are 8cm tall

Maileg call their Brother and Sister mice 'Micro' size and the baby mice 'My' size.

Maileg Bunny & Rabbit Sizes

Maileg Bunnies and Rabbits also come in different sizes: from the smallest My and Micro sizes right up to the largest size 5.

Maileg Rabbits are always taller than their Bunny counterparts because their ears are upright, whereas Maileg Bunnies have long, floppy ears.

Micro Rabbits & Bunnies are similar in size to Big Brother and Sister mice and can share clothes and furniture with them. My Rabbits are similar in size to baby mice and can use the same furniture.

The difference between a bunny and rabbit can be quite confusing. In Maileg terms, a bunny is a girl and a rabbit is a boy, except in the case of the smallest My size. These come in two colours: pink and green, but both are rabbits. There is actually no such thing as a My bunny (we did say it was confusing!)

Maileg mouse sizes compared to bunnies & rabbits

Here are the My and Micro size bunnies and rabbits alongside Maileg mice. Being a similar size, they make perfect playmates for each other and can often share clothes and furniture.

My, Micro and Mini

As we have already mentioned, Maileg mice and the smaller rabbits and bunnies are generally categorised into two sizes: My and Micro.

Baby mice and My Rabbits are 'My' size.

Brother & Sister mice (both big and little) and micro rabbits are 'Micro' size.

Maileg furniture

Maileg furniture is also categorised into My size and Micro size. My size furniture fits the baby mice and My Rabbits. Micro sized furniture fits Brother and Sister mice (Big and Little) and sometimes (but not always) Mum and Dad sized mice.

There is also another size of furniture called 'Mini 'which is suitable for Teddies and size 1 & 2 bunnies. Mini size furniture is much larger than the My and Micro furniture and is only really suitable for large dolls houses such the Maileg's House of Miniature. It won't fit into smaller, traditional 1:12 scale dolls houses or the Ikea Flisat house

Generally, micro sized furniture will fit a 1:12 scale doll's house. It will also fit the Ikea Flisat doll's house and also the Maileg Castle and Hall.

Maileg Accessories

Maileg accessories such as food and kitchen items tend to be a slightly larger scale than Maileg furniture. You can see in the picture that the carton of milk is out of proportion to the fridge and the cooking pot is nearly as big as the oven! This is because Maileg accessories are designed to be safe, robust and easy for little hands to use.

Maileg clothes

There are lots of clothes and outfits available for big brother & sisters and a limited number of clothes to fit little brothers & sisters. Generally speaking, big brothers & sisters and little brothers & sisters cannot share clothes. However big brothers & sisters can share clothes with the micro rabbits & bunnies as they are similar in size.

Mum and Dad mice are two or three centimetres taller than micro sized mice and they have their own set of outfits which are called 'Mum & Dad' size.
