All About Stem Cells
The miraculous stem cell is the body's dreamer – it can grow up to be whatever it wants to be.
FACTS: Most cells in the body are experts at specific functions such as generating electrical impulses in the brain, or carrying oxygen through the blood – or digesting your lunch! However, stem cells are very special cells because they have no specialty except to remain ready, willing, and able to become, someday, whatever is needed.
In the first few days of a person’s life, of course, a lot of cellular construction work is required immediately to put you together. Stem cells spring into action, differentiating into the myriad cells that make you who you are. They are called pluripotent because they can differentiate into anything they want.
But like Peter Pan, some of these embryonic stem cells don’t want to be anything but what they are. They refuse to grow up and choose to remain stem cells even as the adult grows around them.
Most of these adult (or somatic) stem cells do eventually differentiate into specialized cells, though by then their imaginations limit them to becoming cells like the tissue where they live, dutifully repairing any damage that has happened through the course of life.
But some don’t – and scientists would love to get their hooks into them to find out what makes them tick. In fact, scientists have already figured out how to make somatic stem cells more child-like, restoring their pluripotent powers.
Because if cells can really become anything they want, the tantalizing possibility for eternal youth really exists.
For anyone working on stem cells this is a super cute gift!! Arrived within a few days of ordering and is exactly as expected!

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!!
