This video features the new Little Live Pets Mice in the Lil' Mouse House and the Lil' Mouse House Trail by Moose Toys.
Did the door not come with it? I know that the door on our mouse house is pretty easy to take off and put back on, that way if you want the mouse to be able to leave the house or go back in it is easier without the door. Maybe your granddaughter took it off and dropped it somewhere? If not I would contact Little Live Pets directly through their website and see if there is anything that they can do to help.
House Mice originated in the central and southern parts of Asia, but are very adaptable and have spread all over the world. The Pet Mice or Fancy Mice are domesticated forms of the House Mice. In Europe and Asia people began to exchanged mice for their fur and coloring in the 1800's and the term "fancy mice" came into use. In about 1900, Walter Maxey and other mouse fanciers formed the National Mouse Club in England and "fancy mice" have since been kept and bred as a pet. Mice have been used for many purposes over many centuries. The word "mouse" comes from a 4,000 year old word 'mush' which means 'to steal'. In the orient, mice were used by the Chinese in religious rituals as early as 1100 B.C., referring to them as the "ancient one", while the Japanese believed them to be a messenger from the gods. Greeks used them to predict the future and even worshipped them, sailors and miners used them to test air quality in submarines and mines, science uses them to study genetics and disease, and they have even been sent to outer space.
The Little Live Pets Lil' Mouse House is for ages 5 and up.

A demand-type water bottle to provide clean water at all times. A dish may also be used, but caution should be taken as your pet will immediately spill the water or push shavings in it. Holders with chew guards for the water bottle are available to hang the bottle inside the cage. If you use a feed dish, it should be easy to clean and sturdy to prevent tipping. Sleeping boxes can be made from a variety of non-toxic household containers (washable or disposable): butter cups, jars, oatmeal cartons, etc., or store bought houses (for mice). Nesting material will most often be used by mice. This can be shredded kleenex, napkins, etc. If you have access to fresh, clean hay, your mice will love this as nesting material. You can also get LARGE PVC pipe pieces (elbows, Y’s, straight tubes) for them to play in. Exercise wheels provide plenty of exercise and fun. If you get a wheel for your mouse, it needs to be at least approximately 10-12 inches in diameter and a cage large enough to accommodate it. Wooden gnawing blocks hone down teeth. Rawhide chew sticks or hard dog biscuits can also be used. Medium and large Kritter Keepers are convenient for housing a single mouse, such as an average sized pet shop buck. Kritter Keepers are very light weight and easy to clean. Everything that a single mouse needs can fit in here including a wheel, food dish, water bottle, house, and several toys. Their is a built in hole in the lid which fits an 8oz water bottle securely. Ropes can be hung from the lid as well as a hammock. The tub of the Kritter Keeper is very hard plastic, much harder than modified plastic tubs. While not completely impossible, it is extremely unlikely that a mouse will chew through the actual tub of a Kritter Keeper.
