About Maileg

 

Maileg logo

 

Maileg is a wonderfully whimsical range of toys that delight both adults and children with their beautiful, modern designs.  They are the brainchild of Danish design company duo Dorthe and Erik Mailil with Dorthe being the designer and creative director, established in 1999 and is now being sold all over Europe the US and Canada.

 

Dorthe has a background as an illustrator and graduated from Danmarks Designskole, as well as studying at the Ecole d’art de Marseille in France.  Maileg has a distinct and unique design which is based on contemporary seasons with a lovely range for Christmas and Easter each year.  There is a range for babies, younger children and older children.  They are made from high-quality materials and are manufactured in China.

 

Maileg toys are perfect for encouraging imaginative play and will make wonderful heirlooms to pass onto the next generation of little dreamers.  There is a large range of beautiful little furniture and clothing for the animals that Dorthe has created. Each season, a new range of furniture and clothing is available to build up your collection and provide hours of imaginative play and role playing.  There is also a dress up range which is made from high quality materials and won’t want to make you hide from embarrassment when you child decides to wear it on outings.

Development of Skills

 

Fine Motor skills  Sensory skills  Emotional skills  Communication skills

(please see tab below for icon key)

 

The Maileg Best Friends range is great for helping stimulate a variety of skills including:

  • Fine Motor skills:  the size of the arms and soft bodies make for great grasping practice for babies.  Grasping is the first step in developing fine motor control.  The colours and textures also help to entice little fingers to wrap around these toys.
  • Sensory skills:  the different textures of the materials are great for building on the sensation of touch.  It’s important babies experience different types of textures and broaden their sensory input so that they don’t develop an aversion to certain types of textures.  The colours also help to stimulate the sensation of sight, which entices babies to want to play with toys.
  • Emotional skills:  younger and older children can use these toys in imaginative play.  Imaginative play taps into emotions and feelings and allows children (and adults) to express themselves without placing restrictions on their thoughts.  There is no right or wrong way for the brain to imagine.
  • Communication skills:  imaginative play helps to build communication skills, particularly when others join in (e.g. turn taking, listening to friends stories/instructions on the game)

Icon Key

We have created an icon key to make it easier to identify the things you may find important in your purchasing choice and to help let you know what sort of skill development the toys can assist with when your child is playing with the product.

*This information is provided for help with normal development and safety measures should always be taken to ensure children are playing with age appropriate toys (e.g. don't let a small child who is likely to swallow toys to play with an item that carries the Not for under 3 icon). 

 

 

Fair trade - products that have been produced in factories/workshop/communities that have fair and safe working conditions

Environmentally friendly - products have been produced using environmentally friendly materials and/or have made significant modifications to the production/manufacturing process to minimise the impact on the environment

Organic materials - products that are either 100% organic materials or predominately made from organic materials - we will include in the product information all the organic materials.

Recycled materials - product is predominately made up of recycled materials - we will include in the product information all of the product parts that contain recycled materials

Non toxic materials - products made entirely of non toxic materials - we will ensure all ingredients/product materials are included in the product description tabs and the safety requirements they meet (e.g. FDA safety)

Not for under 3 - products contain small materials which are not safe for children under 3 years of age.  These products are not recommended for children under 3 years old.

Fine motor skills - toys carrying this icon can be helpful in developing fine motor skills - the co ordination of the muscles within the fingers, hand and arm that help to manipulate and control objects/tools/materials.

Gross motor skills - toys carrying this icon can be helpful to develop gross motor skills - the the co ordination of the large muscles within the legs, arms or whole body and help us move (e.g. running, jumping, climbing, balancing and physical activity)

Communication skills - toys carrying this icon can be helpful in developing verbal and non verbal communication skills (ability to read, write, speak, gestures and use of facial expressions).  It is also about developing social relationships with friends and family.

Emotional skills - toys carrying this icon can be helpful in developing the ability for children to express their thoughts and feelings and recognise these feelings themselves.  Once children are able to recognise these feelings, it is also important for them to learn the appropriate way to respond to them (e.g. not ok to hit when angry).  It is also about developing confidence, self reliance and independence that all lead to better mental health.

Sensory skills - toys carrying this icon can be helpful in developing the sensory system - taste, touch, smell, hearing, sight and the movement based senses - proprioception (in our joints/muscles that lets us know if our body parts are straight or bent) and vestibular (helps keep our balance).

Thinking and problem solving skills - toys carrying this icon can be helpful in developing the way the brain processes more complex information and then how it responds to this information to help build things like intelligence, memory, creative thinking, imaginative thinking and the ability to complete daily tasks that allow us to function in a community.
