We, Studio Schaapman, are a family business and exist since 2015. We consist of Karina Schaapman and her four children; Tom, Ian, Manita and Lili. The five of us work on The Mouse Mansion books, merchandise, toys and website.
Before Studio Schaapman was founded, Karina did everything by herself. But with the huge succes of the books came to much work for one person. Just approving foreign books and products turned out to be a job in itself. That's why we chose to join hands and start a family company. We now work together on just about everything: building the sets, writing stories, making video's, and thinking of new products.
We have workplace in the middle of Amsterdam where you can find us working day in day out. It's filled with art-supplies en Mouse Mansion decors. And of course a couple of computers, where we make the website and edit the video's.
We love working on this project together! The latest book 'The Mouse Mansion - A visit to the fair' (only available in the Netherlands), the website and the video's are the first results of our collaboration. And there is so much more to come!
