My four-year-old daughter loves mice, and she loves for me to make up stories about a little mouse who lives in her wall and comes out while she's asleep to find crumbs to take back to his family.
I gave her this felt mouse for Valentine's Day, staged in her dollhouse. She found the mouse and was overjoyed that the mouse came to visit her and bring her a heart! She took about 30 seconds to stare at the mouse in wonder! She now sleeps with the mouse every day to make sure that the mouse "doesn't get away". She has a vivid imagination and the mouse created something very special for our family. We never want our daughter to lose the imagination and wonder in her eyes....when we get to create those moments for her, big and small, we feel like we are winning as parents!
We will keep the mouse in the little pouch as a keepsake for when she gets older. It's a beautifully made toy.
