Hello! I'm mouse Max, handcrafted by Granny for little princess Imani. I'm not quite any old crafty handmade mouse, my buttons and fabrics are pieces of a long multicultural family history. Bits and parts of really small episodes in long lived lives of ancestors of princess Imani. My skin for instance is made of an old sweater of Imani's mummy and my stuffing wears stories of many decades ago. In a time when people still walked great distances or if they were lucky had a horse or a bike to ride on. A time without mobile phones or internet. My eyes have seen many lives before they finally ended up on my face. I'm very happy with my eyes. At first I was a little scared I would end up with some weird looking multicolored eye-buttons but luckily granny choose the little black ones which were once upon a time part of granny's grandfather's old police uniform shirt. Every human being has 16 great great parents and my eyes are made of buttons of just 1 old shirt of 1 of those 16 great great parents. I belong to the stuffed animal species and only have Granny to thank for my creation but I am very honored in being specially made for princess Imani and I will carry the family history with pride in my eyes into her life.
