What I am
I am a collection of beautiful, high quality, well made toys. I was built around the belief that ‘less is more’ and a desire for ‘fewer, better’ toys. Folks who meet me usually gasp and remark how ‘beautiful’ and ‘charming’ I am, since I merge modern Scandinavian design with storybook whimsy and meticulous attention to detail.
How I work
No instructions; just imagination. I am a platform for your stories. Take my mice camping, help me with my chores, take care of the baby …
My founders, Dorthe and Erik Malil, started 20 years ago in Denmark. Dorthe grew up with a passion for design, studying first at the Danish Design School and later at L’Ecole D’Art de Marseille and Paris, which she noted was the inspiration behind many of the sweet and nostalgic details of the brand. She created me with her husband Erik, and my name comes from combining their last name (Mailil) with “leg” (the danish word for play). She has grown the Maileg family from a class project about pixies to a family of toys that now includes bunnies, mice, forest friends - all living in a charming word of hand-sewn clothing, modern furniture, and playful accessories.
