All About Inner Ear
Listen up! You ear is a remarkable sensory organ comprised of the outer ear, middle ear and inner ear. The inner ear is a bony labyrinth that creates our sense of balance and hearing. The main part is cochlea, a snail-shaped bony casing that converts mechanical vibrations into electronic signals.
FACTS: Turn down that music and listen up! Your ear is a remarkable sensory organ with three parts: the outer ear, the middle ear with the eardrum, and the inner ear. The inner ear is a bony labyrinth that creates our sense of balance and hearing. Balance is controlled by three semicircular canals containing fluid and tiny hairs. When you tilt your head, the fluid adjusts and pushes the hairs, sending nerve signals to your brain so you can make balance corrections.
The cochlea is the main organ of hearing. This snail-shaped bony casing converts mechanical sound vibrations into electronic nerve signals. It contains the basilar membrane and an intricate collection of hair-like nerve filaments, called hair cells. The membrane vibrates in response to sound. Thousands of these hair cells respond to different sound pitches based on their location on the membrane. High pitched sounds impact the base of the cochlea where the membrane is more narrow and thick. Low pitched sounds stimulate the inner tip where the membrane is wider and flexible. Thus, sound vibrations become electronic signals that travel from your auditory nerve to your brain which processes and interprets the sound.
Hearing loss and deafness are due to disruptions in the auditory system. There are three main types. Conduction deafness occurs when sound waves are obstructed from reaching the hair cells. Sensorineural hearing loss is caused from damage to the cochlea or auditory nerve. Central deafness is caused by defects in the auditory pathways of the brain. Since the 1980s, cochlear implants have been used to treat sensorineural hearing loss. This amazing neuroprosthetic device takes on the role of the hair cells within the cochlea. Lend an ear and take good care of your amazing ears!

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!!
