Fairytale nostalgia in the children's room with Maileg
In the past few days, toys were often more loving, because plush toys pull carts and other toys were not so abundant and were manufactured more carefully. The design was fabulously playful and stimulated the children's imagination...
The comparatively young brand Maileg would like to continue this time. Founded in Denmark in 1999, the label has dedicated itself to modern Scandinavian design, which mixes it with a dreamlike fairytale world and transports the magic of carefree childhood into the present. So it's hardly surprising that the Maileg rabbits, mice, and circus animals conquered numerous children's rooms by storm and now appear frequently in books, magazines and even on television.
Dorthe Mailil - founder and designer
Responsible for the nice Danish children's toy is Dorthe Mailil, who also gave her company half of its name. The Danish word for "Leg" is attached to Mailil's "Mai." After the sympathetic founder laid the foundation stone for the detailed toys rabbits, mice, lions and other plush companions in 1996 with her education at a well-known Danish design school, the graphic design graduate was drawn to the L'ecole D'art de Marseilles in Paris, where everything took shape with a cult clay figure that a whole class of design students was enthusiastic about. Encouraged by this experience, the family of enchanting playmates grew, and clay quickly became plush. Dorthe founded Maileg in Herning, Denmark, and created a whole world of nostalgic, fairytale figures full of charm and magic.
