All About Asthma
Asthma is a chronic respiratory disease that affects people of all ages. It is the most common chronic disease among children. On the rise and often underdiagnosed, asthma afflicts over 200 million people globally.
FACTS: Asthma is a chronic respiratory disease that affects people of all ages. It is the most common chronic disease among children. On the rise and often underdiagnosed, asthma afflicts over 200 million people globally. Asthma causes inflammation of the airways that carry oxygen in and out of the lungs. Airways become sensitive to allergens and other irritations, swelling and leading to asthma attacks. Symptoms include coughing, wheezing, chest tightening and shortness of breath. A severe attack may cause the airways to close so much that organs don’t get enough oxygen.
Different types of asthma are triggered by different factors. Allergic asthma is set off by pollen, mold, dust mites, animal dander or other allergens. Exercise-induced bronchoconstriction occurs when playing sports or exercising. Other types include adult-onset, occupational and non-allergic asthma. While there is no cure for asthma, symptoms can be controlled with medication and a management plan. Quick-relief medicines increase airflow and stop symptoms when they occur. Long-term controller medications are taken daily to prevent symptoms.
Asthma often starts during childhood. Those at highest risk are young kids who have respiratory infections, allergies, eczema or parents with asthma. Adults can develop asthma from contact with industrial chemicals or dusts. Scientists think there are both genetic and environmental factors involved in the onset of asthma, but the exact causes remain a mystery. The hygiene hypothesis is one fascinating area of research. The modern world’s emphasis on cleanliness and sanitation has reduced childhood infections, which is mostly a good thing. Yet this also means that kids have reduced environmental exposures, affecting the way their immune systems develop. This may lead to a disposition to develop allergies and a higher risk of asthma. Perhaps we should all spend more time playing in the dirt and interacting with microbes!

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!!
