* In ''SorcerersApprentice'', when Balthazar gives Dave the book, Dave marvels at how tiny and light it is. Balthazar then proceeds to unfold it several times until it's the size of an atlas, and hands it to Dave, who no longer finds it light. Balthazar then picks the top and lifts it and the book also becomes thick as a technical manual, nearly making Dave lose his balance.

* "Astronaut Blankets", or metallic Mylar sheets, come in a pack no bigger than say two of those tissue packs stacked on their side, and can fold out to cover about a 8'x4' area. considering these are normally meant for campers, it's better if they're tiny.

* A teacher of ''Creator/RoaldDahl'' proved to his class that a sheet of paper 1/4" thick, folded 50 times in half, would reach from the Earth to the Sun.
