FACTS: Platelets, or thrombocytes, are the smallest cells (or cell fragments) in the blood. Under the microscope, they normally look like little disks or plates!
The primary purpose of platelets is to prevent bleeding by creating blood clots. As platelets circulate through the bloodstream, they normally slide along the smooth surface of the blood vessels without sticking. However, if the smooth wall is ruptured, platelets are activated: they swell up, stick to the exposed rough patch, and extend filaments which can help seal the breach.
The average person has between 150,000 to 400,000 platelets in every drop (or microliter) of blood. However, if platelet concentration falls to abnormally low levels (because platelet production in the bone marrow is insufficient, or because platelet absorption by the body is too rapid), the formation of blood clots can become impaired and bleeding can result. On the other hand, if platelet production is too rapid or absorption too slow, platelet levels can build into the millions per microliter, which can cause blood clots to form spontaneously, resulting in heart attacks and strokes. And even where platelet concentration is normal, platelets can become dysfunctional, because of hereditary conditions, disease, or the presence of platelet-altering substances such as aspirin in the body.
Fortunately, a variety of medical treatments can help restore platelet levels and functionality. In addition, where necessary, platelet transfusions can also be performed – thanks to the many blood donors who keep stocking the cupboard.

The perfect addition to my collections. Thank you knick knack
I was delighted when I found the World's Smallest GI Joes. My son has a complete set of figures and mobiles. I was wondering how I could add to his collection. I saw these at Knick Knack and was thrilled. I was even more thrilled when I saw the prices. I immediately ordered one of each. They arrived quickly and in perfect condition. I look forward to shopping here again.
Very cute little Care Bears! They make me so happy. This is a fantastic price for all four, and they shipped pretty quickly! If you put the pastel and multicolored bears together, they'd look like a mini version of my childhood teddy bear.
Super well made. Fast shipping. Safeky packaged. Very happy. Will return to buy more. :)
The kids are the perfect gift for family and friends. My only suggestion is to try and protect them by individually wrapping each when shipping multiple kids. I’m really pleased with the quality.
I love it!!
Item arrived quickly with no problems!
I wanted a dreamhouse for my 70s dollhouse and this is perfect. It was delivered very quickly and went directly into a 1/12 playroom. The best part is the tiny Ken though. He is a wonderful addition to the dollhouse.
I love this mini Barbie dream house! I got the real thing for Christmas when I was a kid. It was well played with and it’s nice to have a mini version to display as the real dream house just wouldn’t look quite right on my desk at work. (🤔😊) Thanks for such a creative way for adults to tap into their fondest childhood memories & be able to enjoy a mini version. Super cool idea!
A great seller to work with, price was perfect and fast to shop out. My item was exactly as advertised.
Just as described. They’re adorable
KnickKnack Toy Shack has the best items available at great prices! The customer service outstanding! The tiny Barbie Case is exactly like the original in the 80s! Highly recommended! God Bless & Stay Safe! :))
