The edition of Ma Mere I have by Dover publications gives "toy mandarins". I haven't been able to find much information on the writer Marie-Catherine, Comtesse d'Aulnoy or the story, though.
There are more quotes from the score but the others are fairly long.
Ah, yes! I have now checked in a bigger dictionary, a 2-volume Larousse, and I found it can also mean a small porcelain figure with a mobile head, in addition to a pagoda. --AlainV 19:48, 27 Nov 2004 (UTC)
I'm not sure if Ravel actually intended to portray "Tom Thumb", despite some translations using that name. The French title refers to "Hop o' My Thumb" as that article actually explains. Perhaps this should be corrected to "Hop o' My Thumb (Sometimes called Little Tom Thumb)"? --Jubilee♫clipman 03:49, 23 November 2009 (UTC)
