All About RSV (Respiratory Syncytial Virus)
Meet RSV, or respiratory syncytial virus. In fact, you have probably already been exposed to RSV before your second birthday. It is one of the most common childhood illnesses and a main cause of bronchiolitis and pneumonia in babies. There is currently no cure for RSV, but a vaccine has been developed and approved for use.
FACTS: Meet RSV, or respiratory syncytial virus. In fact, you have probably already been exposed to RSV before your second birthday. RSV usually causes mild cold-like illness but can be severe, or even fatal, in older adults and young children. It is one of the most common childhood illnesses and a main cause of bronchiolitis and pneumonia in babies. RSV is also a gift that keeps on giving since we do not naturally mount long-lasting immunity against it and you can get infected multiple times during your life. The season for RSV starts in the fall. During the winter of 2022, RSV contributed to the tripledemic also involving flu and Covid cases that swamped children’s hospitals.
RSV symptoms are similar to the common cold or even a mild case of the flu or Covid, and include a cough, runny nose, sneezing and fever. Infants under six months old may become irritable and have decreased appetite and activity. More severe RSV infections may cause difficulty breathing, high fever and bluish lips or nails. Seek medical attention when babies, older adults and those who are immunocompromised have these symptoms. Because adults already have a lot of antibodies against the virus from previous exposures, their illness tends to be much milder. RSV can be contagious for up to 8 days. Coughs, sneezes and kisses are a few ways that RSV gets around. Unlike Covid, RSV can also spread when people touch contaminated surfaces. Wash your hands to minimize the spread of RSV, along with many other contagious microbes.
There is currently no cure for RSV, but a vaccine has been developed and approved for use. There are antigen and PCR tests for RSV, but they are typically reserved for young children or older adults. There is also an immunizing agent, palivizumab, that can help prevent severe illness in children, but this does not treat those already infected or prevent infection. Fortunately, RSV infections tend to go away on their own in a couple weeks, most people recover well, and repeat infections are generally less severe than the initial infection.

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!!
