Meet Sam & Julia
Sam and Julia live in a wonderful place called the Mouse Mansion. Sam is super shy and very well behaved, while Julia is super curious and very stubborn. The two mice couldn't be more different, but they are the best of friends. Whenever Julia gets bored, she goes looking for Sam, and they have all sorts of adventures together.
Discover The Mouse Mansion
The elaborate dollhouse is made of found objects such as bottle tops, matchsticks, pop sticks, cardboard boxes and papier-mache, and contains more than one hundred rooms to explore.
The Mouse Mansion was made by Karina Schaapman. It is not a dollhouse, but a decor for a series of children's books. The Mouse Mansion is made of cardboard boxes and papier-mache. For the decoration, mostly waste materials were used. The book series, the first volume of which appeared in 2011, soon became a resounding success at home and abroad. The books have now been translated into more than 27 languages. For every age there is a suitable book of the Mouse Mansion available!

The Mouse Mansion is the creation of Karina Schaapman (Leiden, 1960). In 2008 she decided to make a children's book. Not with illustrations, but with photos of scenes from her Mouse Mansion. In 2015 Karina started a family business with her four children. Together we run the Shop & Studio in the Jordaan in Amsterdam. Our goal: To create a safe and caring world for children and to inspire them to build this world themselves!

Arianna (8 year old Italian girl) really appreciates the gift (the book in English, with fantastic big pictures of the home; the bedroom to build with fantastic stickers and Julia ).She is not yet able to read in english but she started to build the bedroom by herself adding her cretivity. Unfortunately when we planned our trip in Amsterdam started the pandemia but we will not miss to visit the mouse mansion shop in the next future.
My granddaughter who loves the book Mouse Mansion was very happy to receive Sam and Julia. She is 3 years old and said: I love them.
My granddaughter is having so much fun with the Mouse Mansion shop furniture. We are all working together to create fruits and veggies plus a miniature bunting. We also purchased the Kitchen and Shop cutouts as well as the big coloring page. She can’t wait to come over and create. We also love the YouTube tutorials. Thanks so much Judy
