Why must so many little girls' toys be so small? In my opinion, there's a very fine line between tiny children's toys, and garbage.
Here's one simple way to determine if a toy is too small: Does it fit through a vaccuum cleaner hose? Then it's garbage. Is it smaller than say, a Cheerio? Then it's too small to be a toy! I don't care if you're over age three, it's too small. I'm over age forty, and I need to be able to see what I'm vaccuuming up.
It's not even Barbie accessories I'm talking about here. Hers things at least, are visible with the naked eye. Now, Polly Pocket's things are tiny.

And Silly Bandz. Don't get me started. Are they expensive and fun children's jewelry, or plastic crap?
Ah, now that depends on the location. Location, as they say, is everything.
Are they tucked away in a jewelry box? Or at least, somewhere within a child's bedroom? Or are they on the living room floor?
Because those don't clog up the vaccuum cleaner hose at all. I speak from experience.
