The Mice Are All Snug in Their Beds

There have been animated windows on Queen St since the 1930s when The Bay was still Simpson's and they competed with Eaton's windows across the street. One of my favourites when I was a kid showed the mouse family beneath the floor having their own Christmas celebrations and so I was thrilled to see the little mice in this window. The mouse kids are all tucked into their matchbox beds (with Hudson Bay blankets!) while the humans upstairs are still preparing the house. Still fighting the reflections but I think it works!

This is fun to see. I grew up in Toronto and this photo makes me remember looking in the windows when I was a young lad.

The mouse family is very very cute!!!
It's not so sophisticated like the others, but it's so sweet, my favourite window.
If I was a kid in Toronto, I'd ask this window as a Christmas gift. :o)
