We, Studio Schaapman, are a family business and exist since 2015. We consist of Karina Schaapman and her four children; Tom, Ian, Manita and Lili. The five of us work on The Mouse Mansion books, merchandise, toys and website.
Before Studio Schaapman was founded, Karina did everything by herself. But with the huge succes of the books came a lot of work. Just approving foreign books and products turned out to be a job in itself. That's why we chose to join hands and start a family company. We now work together on just about everything: building the sets, writing stories, making video's, and thinking of new products.
We have a Mouse Mansion shop & studio in the center of Amsterdam where you can find us working every day. The front is an old shop where you can walk in and see the decors and buy our books. In the back are our offices and studio. You are welcome to visit!
