Maileg stands as a beacon of Danish design, crafting exceptional children's soft toys and accessories since 1999. Founded by Dorthe and Erik Mailil, the brand's name is a fusion of their surname "Mailil" and "leg," the Danish term for play, encapsulating the essence of their vision.

Dorthe's early passion for design blossomed into a career, with formal training at prestigious institutions like the Danish Design School and L’ecole D’art de Marseille and Paris. It was during these formative years that the initial sketches and concepts for Maileg's beloved toys took shape.

At the heart of Maileg's mission is the commitment to spread joy and kindle the enchantment of childhood in every household. Each whimsical creation brims with personality and charm, inviting children to weave their tales of imagination with a delightful cast of mice and rabbits, complemented by meticulously crafted accessories.
