NEW Doctor Who Mice! Jon Pertwee Mouse, Tom Baker Mouse and Peter Davison Mouse

I am so happy to introduce to you the three newest Doctor Who mice to arrive in The House of Mouse. As you know by now, Naomi and I are massive fans of Doctor Who and just love making mice inspired by this great British TV series (click on any mouse to see more photos)

This time last week we were contacted by the BBC because they were interested in showing a still of our Matt Smith Mouse on the One Show!! - a very popular evening chat show in the UK - Because they were having Matt Smith in to promote the new episodes of Doctor Who. Unfortunately they didn't have time to squeeze us in, but we were so thrilled to have been asked anyway. Maybe one day in the future our little mice will make the big time!


Jon Pertwee is the third regeneration of The Doctor! Jon Pertwee's Doctor is a suave, dapper, technologically-oriented and authoritative mouse of action. He practises Venusian Aikido and enjoyes working on gadgets and riding all manner of vehicles! Including the Whomobile and his pride and joy, the canary-yellow vintage roadster nicknamed "Bessie"

Tom Baker Mouse is the 4th regeneration of The Doctor and has an eccentric style of dress and speech, particularly his trademark long scarf and fondness for jelly babies. Galvanized by higher purpose, he is disarmingly loopy, brilliant and entirely serious, all at the same time. This Doctor is arguably the most unpredictable of his incarnations; befuddling all with his intelligence, constantly leaving others wondering if they have his full attention and using his more off the wall mannerisms against adversaries to distract them while arranging to take control of the situation!

Peter Davison Mouse is a far more vulnerable, sensitive, and reserved character than the previous regenerations of The Doctor. He frequently makes decisions by flipping a coin. However, the Fifth Doctor's boyish appearance, nervous energy, and charm all hide the fact that he is a Time Lord Mouse of great age, compassion, and experience.

Mouse invasion!

My latest package to Naomi just arrived and she sent me a photo of them all. I am sure I didn't sew that many mice! Perhaps they were breeding during the journey...

Interview with a Mouse: Theodore the Graduate Mouse

For this month’s interview with a mouse we are chatting with Theodore Mouse who just graduated from the University of Rodentia with a BA in Mouseology. 

Good afternoon Theodore, It’s great to see you. Thanks so much for taking the time to talk to us!
Yeah man, it’s cool. But call me Theo! Only my Ma and Pa call me Theodore. I just finished my degree so I finally have some time to myself. Thanks for rescheduling for the afternoon; I can’t believe you wanted to talk to me at 11am! I mean, who’s together by then? You can still taste the toothpaste. But I am awake now so bring on the questions!

You’re looking a little rough around the edges this afternoon, did you have a heavy night last night?
Oh man last night was so great. Me and my mates went out for Mr Mouse’s bachelor party and we all got totally blitzed!! When we got home Devlin the Devil mouse accidentally set fire to the kitchen because he put the leftover pizza AND the cardboard box in the oven to reheat it!! I laughed so hard my whiskers almost fell off! Man, that was an awesome night.

I guess you need to let your fur down after working so hard for your Mouseology Degree. Are your parents proud of you?
Yeah man, I think they are kind of shocked actually. I think they thought I would fail ‘cos they say I drink and party too much. But I was a good mouse for a couple of months before the exams; I only went out drinking every other night. My old man was so pleased I passed that he bought me a ticket to visit the cheese factory!

So what are your plans now that you have graduated?
Ah man, I’m still working that out. I would love to take a year out to do some travelling, see the world and other cultures and stuff. Some of my mates want to backpack across Australia for a bit, so I might tag along with them if I can scrape together enough money. Of course there is always the option of doing another degree, continue on the great life of being a student. I’m not sure what the future holds yet. I think I would like to be a doctor or something one day but I’m not sure if I have the brains for that. Who knows where I will be in a year's time?

Well Theo, thanks so much for talking to us. We wish you lots of luck for the future!
Yeah Man, it’s cool! *Theo tries to High Five us but we are too slow, so he misses and we both look stupid and a bit embarrassed* yeah, well... er... see ya!

NEW - Freddy Krueger Mouse

I don't know about you, but this little mouse freaks me out. Normally I adore the macabre mice like Axel the Executioner with the little severed head. But this one is reeeeeeaally creepy! Don't get me wrong - I love him like all his brothers and sisters - but I think he will give me nightmares all the same. I am sure there are some of our macabre mouse collectors out there that will adore him.

Little Freddy Krueger Mouse is a disfigured dream stalker who uses a glove armed with razors to kill his victims in their dreams, taking their souls. This harrowing little mouse is a true scary villain! We are a little scared to have him in the House if we're honest with you, he pushes even our love of the macabre a tad far.

He has a hand painted burned, disfigured face, red and dark green striped sweater, brown fedora hat, and trademark metal-clawed brown leather glove. He's perfect for any fan of the Nightmare of Elm Street films.
