While I think mice are absolutely adorable, I have never been a big fan of them as pets. Personally I believe hamsters or rats make better pets; they're less skittish and jumpy than mice. Rats are also much more affectionate and hamsters are just plain easier in general, while still being small.
Mice are at least really easy to take care of, they don't need a huge enclosure, have an easy diet and while they do benefit from a wheel, they don't really need much else, aside from something to burrow in and a little hideaway.
