Tiny toy people that were basically a plastic cylinder with a tiny, very round head with a VERY simple face painted on it. They had no arms, legs, hands, or feet. There was different races of people, people wearing different colored clothes (basically different colored cylinders), etc. They had all sorts of collectible homes, pools, cars, furniture, etc. They came in different families- such as Mothers, Fathers, younger brothers/ sisters, babies (which I could never seem to tell whether they were boys or girls), dogs/cats (which also stood upright like the people), etc. They eventually had to change the size and shape of the tiny people because small children began choking on them.
