All About Tick (Ixodes Scapularis)
If you frequent wooded areas it's only a matter of time until you're bitten. Tick, tock, tick, tock...
A super reminder to check for ticks when outdoors and a great gift for nature lovers!
FACTS: In most of the world’s dark woods and grassy plains, tiny ticks are questing in search of blood. These little vampires can be as small as pinpoints or as large as grapes – but they have an uncanny ability to sense heat and carbon dioxide, and to identify the well-travelled paths that their victims are likely to traverse. When they sense the motion of a nearby host, they drop from the tips of grasses or leaves and plunge their barbed, fang-like hypostome into their victim’s neck (or any other convenient spot) and lap up to hundreds of times their body-weight until they are sated. Or removed.
A kind of arthropod, ticks are not insects but arachnids related to scorpions and spiders. Hard ticks (such as deer ticks and dog ticks) have a plate-like scutum protecting their backs which gives them the comfort to feed for hours or days. Because diseases such as tularemia, Lyme disease, and Rocky- Mountain Spotted Fever tend not to be transmitted until dessert, there is often time to remove discovered ticks before lasting harm has been done. (Soft ticks, on the other hand, eat and run, dropping off after barely an hour.)
To remove a tick, folk remedies involving heated pins, matches, or gasoline are best avoided – they can provoke the tick into regurgitating part of its meal, and infection along with it. Instead, the tick should be grasped with a tweezers as close to the skin as possible, flipped onto its back (slowly, so as not to dislodge the “head”, or mouthparts, in the skin), and then gently pulled until it is removed. But resist the temptation to drive a stake through its heart as that can help spread disease as well. A bath of alcohol should allow you to discard a tick safely – perhaps with a clove of garlic.

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! :))
I am satisfied with my purchase. However, after only a couple days of use, the batteries are beginning to fade. I'd like to know how to replace the batteries, and Westminster has yet to reply to my request.
Can you speak to them, and prompt a reply to me?
Absolutely love these!!! I collect minis and wacky packages was hoping they would make mini packs with cards/stickers!!! Can’t find them here 😔 so very happy you have them!! Thank you to a great seller!!!!!
For nearly 50 years I’ve collected cards. Almost as long I’ve collected miniatures. These are two favorite collectibles in one for me. If they produce miniature packs of Kiss cards, that may be an overload. Always top notch service!
This miniature is fantastic, I had a full size example as a kid and loved it. This brought back a fond time for me. Thank you!!
