How many of you have read the book Stuart Little? We’re not talking about the movie(s), though they have their own merits, but the actual book. We know! Perish the thought that there should be small rectangular objects that led to some movies getting made long after the fact. Our point is this – a mouse, raised by humans (adopted in the movies – either case is a little weird, but let’s go with it), who embarks on all manner of awesome adventures, including a cross country road trip (that actually was never resolved because the author, E.B. White feared for his health so never finished it). And what adventures he had! Boat races, interspecies conflict (Snowbell the cat originally tries to eat Stewart and even tricks his folks into thinking he ran out and actively tries to get rid of him), interspecies friendship (Stuart befriends a lovely canary named Margalo, substitute teaching, even interspecies l’amour! (In the book, whilst on his way to find Margalo, Stuart meets a human girl who is no bigger than he is, though sadly, their romance is short-lived). And best of all, this classic story came out of the mid 1940s, when the world was focused on way more important things than an adventurous little mouse and his exploits.
Folkmanis and their adorable plush mouse puppet may just call to mind the wonder and whimsy of White’s fantastical story. And if not, we bet you could come up with an even better one! At 8 inches in height, he’s just the right size for tiny adventures on a grand scale!
