Did you know?


Did you know that there was a secretive Swedish Art Collective, 'AnonyMouse', who install miniature Mouse homes, shops, caf├ęs, etc, at Mouse level on our streets? You might find them almost anywhere, at the very bottom of any building; at pavement level.


These perfectly formed miniaturised establishments have appeared in Sweden, France, and the Isle of Man; and might soon turn-up in a town near you!


Inspired by such as Beatrix Potter and Astrid Lindgren, this miniature world is there to inspire both children and adults. They are beautifully fashioned, and anyone coming across one of their creations could not fail to be enthralled.

Well done AnonyMouse.

  1. I've heard of them and seen pictures. It's wonderful, to do something like this for no other reason that to give joy. Anony-mouse is is a hero! (Not to be confused with Mighty Mouse).

    1. Mighty Mouse is a hero too, and possibly lives in one of their homes.

  4. I'd love to find one of these in my neighbourhood! Such whimsy, and the bill posters are very amusing.

    1. You could always make one yourself; I'm thinking about it for one of my stone walls.

    1. It's wonderful that there are people about who are prepared to spend so much time and effort on something as crazy.

    1. They're new to me too. I wish I'd known about them earlier.

  7. These are Fabulous. Here gardeners have Fairy Houses but mostly in peoples gardens . I like your AnonyMouse out in the world ones better.
    Here in America there are too many people that would destroy them just to be mean. Especially teens with spray cans of paint.

    1. That was my first thought, a quick kick or spray of paint would destroy months of work. I hope people are respectful.

  8. These are wonderful. I thought at first they might be painted, like a friend's daughter did at their art gallery. Children often spotted them and were delighted. But those were one dimensional scenes, and these are real. Fully furnished, with central heating.

    1. The detail in some of them is superb; like extravagant Doll's Houses, but for Mice.
