I've never even thought about it before... good question...
I know mice (like lots of animals) have a third eyelid/membrane thing that we don't have, so maybe that keeps their eyes more moist and they have to blink less because of it? I really don't know though...

From what I understand, they do blink just not very often. Like MouseLover said, they do have a nictitating membrane.

When I saw this question, my train of thought was, "What? Of course they blink! I mean, how could they not even.... Wait. Have I ever seen a mouse blink? ......... Huh." Laughing

CinnamonPearl I had the exact same thought process Laughing
Apparently hamsters blink one eye at a time, like they're winking, but I don't think I've ever seen Archie do it yet.
