Behind the Brand
Maileg was founded by Danish illustrator and designer Dorthe Mailil and her husband Erik in 1999.
This unique name combines their surname Mailil with leg, the Danish word for play. Inspired by a
love of fairytale and childhood imagination, they seek to create toys that are a gentle alternative
to our technological age's bright, brash toys.
Maileg's award-winning toys are charming and pure, encouraging innocent play and simple wonder. From
mice to princesses, they create characters from idyllic worlds to comfort and inspire young
Made with Love
Ecological responsibility is important to Maileg, and they ensure that all of their products are made
to the highest standards. Maileg supports the 17 Sustainable Development Goals defined by the UN and
exports most of its goods by sea to cut down its carbon footprint. All of their toys and accessories
meet strict European safety standards.
Toys to Treasure
Maileg's creations are made with non-toxic materials and are beautifully tactile. From washable linen
and cotton to solid wood, these toys and accessories are designed to pass down through the
generations. Made to hug, cuddle and keep.
