One December evening a small car, barely the size of a shoebox, pulls up in front of Jill and Joy’s house. Stepping out from the car is the teensy-weensy McTinies family, who are searching for Mrs Rosebud. They became homeless when a woodcutter felled their home tree. The girls do not know the whereabouts of Mrs Rosebud, so they invite the McTinies to their home, while the family’s car is getting repaired. They soon find out that not all big people have good intentions towards the tiny. Fortunately Jill and Joy get help from their neighbours Tinglestein and Tanglestein, two women capable of all kinds of magical things, plus Police Chief Ronny Righteous and his wife Mrs. Pompinella Prune. Together they have an adventure with a happy ending and get to spend a magical tiny Christmas party.
