I found this over the weekend at a Dollar Tree that isn't close to my neighborhood. I thought they all carried the same stuff, but this one had a lot of things that mine doesn't carry. For one, this cute little tripod.
They come in white, blue and red. There is no center column to raise it for additional height, but the plate can be screwed up and down (or off of) the bolt. The housing for the legs might seem out of proportion for 1:6 scale, but compared to a real tripod, it's actually not. Let's see it out in the field!
Tatiana wants to test out her new tripod so she heads over to Jordan and Max's to take some test shots. Max was out walking his dog, Teddy, and came back to find a photoshoot on his doorstep.
Max is hanging back so that he and Teddy don't get in the way. Besides he likes seeing Tatiana bend over... uh, I mean, he likes seeing her engaged in her work.
The telescope feature isn't very high, but I've taken photos at this level many a time using the LCD screen. I twisted the plate up so it was flush with the bolt head and then put HandiTak under the camera to secure it down.
Here are some of the photos that Tatiana shot:
Jordan asked to have one of Claudia by herself. ^_^.
Max was completely distracted and Teddy got away from him.
Teddy loves it when that Claudia lady comes over.
She smells different than the other humans.

Final verdict: The Mini Tripod is awesome. It is a little on the rickety, wobbly side, but my usual thought applies on something I get from the dollar store; "What the heck you expect for a buck?"
