Maileg Size Guide for Mice and Bunnies

Maileg Size Guide for Mice and Bunnies

Jan 24, 2021 • 7 min read

Maileg (pronounced My-lee) is a real customer favourite here at 100 Toys but with three core animal collections (mice, bunnies and rabbits) and family members of every size and persuasion, plus a few Danish words thrown in, it’s not always easy to understand their sizing.

To make things even more complicated, Maileg has recently updated all of its bunny and rabbit sizes. This is a good thing, as it means most of the furniture can work across all three collections (great for when your mice and bunnies want to play) but during this transition phase you may notice that some of our stock is still showing old sizes.

If you’re not sure of your My from your Micro, here’s a quick explainer:

  • Grandma/Grandad ≈ 15.2 cm

Mouse furniture

Baby mice fit with MY size furniture. All other mice fit with MICRO furniture. Look for these sizes when buying furniture for your mice and their homes.
