A tiny mouse café and shop have suddenly appeared on a street in Sweden and they're the most adorable thing ever

Visitors to Malmö in Sweden should watch out for a miniature mouse café  and shop that has taken up residence in basement windows on one of the city’s streets. The brainchild of the mysterious Anonymouse MMX, the tiny storefronts designed for the city’s population of mouse residents are simply adorable.

Locals and visitors alike have been charmed by the “Noix de Vie” store,  which “sells” a range of nuts to the tiny creatures. There is also an Italian restaurant called “Il Topolino”  – the Italian name for Mickey Mouse – complete with a teeny table and chairs and a menu for its range of cheese and crackers.

Posters for mouse-related films, a tiny power station and a bicycle complete the charming scene. According to Anonymouse, the idea behind the street art is the concept of a world where mice live parallel lives to humans, just slightly out of sight.

To ramp up the awww factor even further, the streets artists built the shop and mouse café out of things that the rodents themselves could have collected and reused, such as lids from tin cans, matches and buttons

According to the Anonymouse Instagram, there is more adorable mouse art planned for the future. “Without spoiling too much we can tell you that we’re working on a new scene, and in 2017 you’re going to be able to see plenty more.”

We, and presumably the Swedish mouse population, can hardly wait to see what they come up with next.
