Most of them were mine when I was little. I loved playing with little things, whether they were Fisher Price Little People (my favorite), Kiddles, or little animals like these.
I remember one year, I think in sixth grade, for Christmas our teacher let us choose two little plastic animals as a gift.
What is the allure of small things to kids? Maybe it’s just that the little things’ size seems manageable. I must confess that even today, I find them charming.
