When two naughty little mice discover the door to the beautiful dolls' house ajar, they just have to tiptoe inside and have a look.

Who can resist the delightful mischief of Tom Thumb and Hunca Munca?

Review by

Two dolls live in a lovely doll house, but when they are away, two mice break and steal half the things! The nurse sets a mouse trap as a punishment of their naughtiness. They make up for it a little bit by giving the dolls money and cleaning their house every day.
