Not so small

Earlier this year, I discovered the World's Smallest line of toys.
I immediately bought myself a wonderfully tiny Gumby and Pokey.
A couple weeks later, Lauren gifted me a pair of My Little Ponies.
Last week I was perusing the World's Smallest selection on eBay, and I noticed there was an Elf on the Shelf. I thought that could be a fun addition to my 1:9 scale Christmas collection, so I bought one. It arrived today... and it's huge.
Somehow, I never saw this coming. Everything I'd seen in this line has fit nicely within the 1:9 scale range. It never occurred to me that this would be a different size entirely.
To make matters worse, he doesn't even ride well. His arms and legs move at the shoulder and hips, but they don't bend at knees and elbows.
I still love the World's Smallest line of toys, but this elf is entirely too big for my shelf. Next time I'll be sure to check the dimensions!

  1. Nasty elf anyway, lol I always disliked him...
    Now that I am up to the current with your blog I am reading SBY's guide. I want to start the Rio Rondo Halter, but am wishing I had about 5 feet of lace to practice skiving on! Wish me luck...or don't...I am going to try it out anyway. Who knew this was a thing! Now I do, and I am raring to go! Thanks again for all your help along the way, I am sure I will look at all my Pins as I go. Be Safe!
