Jill and Joy housesit for Mrs. Rosebud, who has gone on a journey. One day a little car, not much bigger than a shoebox, drives into a snowbank nearby. The miniature family McTinie has luckily survived the accident unscathed. As a cut tree destroyed their own home, they seek refuge with the two friendly girls. The new friends fit nicely into the children’s dollhouse and have everything they need: tables, chairs, beds – and everything is perfect for their size. While the small car is being repaired at the garage, it seems that some local residents are out to catch the McTinies. Fortunately Jill and Joy get help from Sheriff Ronny Righteous and his wife Pompinella Prune, as well as from their neighbors Tinglestein and Tanglestein, two smart ladies who amaze the children with their magic power. They spend an exciting adventurous winter together and can celebrate a little magic Christmas party at the end.
