    80s kids movie, fantacy,with a dwarf, live actors
    OK, this is very scetchy to me. I used to rent this movie a lot as a kid. It could be late 70s or 80s. I remember a young boy and girl (maybe 9-12yr) I think brother and sister. I think the movie starts in there house, and this dwarf of some kind/small fantasy creature/little man appears. I think the kids try to hide him, or he hides himself in the washer or dryer, maybe it was the garage... im so confused. The kids live in a modern society, and he takes the kids to his land. Where he is from I remember a lot of fantasy, almost like a huge festival. I don't even remember the plot, how it ends, nothing, that's all I have. I adored that movie as a child, can anyone help me remember the title.

    The movie you are looking for is definitely the Great Land of Small. I had the same memories with the acrobats and the butterflies and finally found out the name about a year ago. I was able to find a vhs copy of it on eBay so you might want to look there if you're having trouble finding it. The movie is out of print so you won't find it on dvd anywhere unless it's a bootleg.

    There is definitely a scene in the Hugga Bunch Movie where the doll that comes from the fantasy land hides and gets put in the washer with the laudry, but this is the only thing that matches your plot. That stuck out the most.

    The movie troll is set in an apartment building and the girl goes to the basement laundry and at first the troll hides behind the washer and then befriends the girl and she becomes the troll and turns the people in her building into trolls and her big brother and a secret witch in the building stop the troll from takeing over the girl, if that's not the movie your talking about you should see it ''troll''

    The movie is probably troll it is set in an apartment building and the troll hides in the basement laundry room then takes over the little girl and she turns the other tenants into trolls and her big brother has to help her with the help of a secret good witch in the building if you remember a girl at the top of the stairs with a ball and a live cute little mushroom then that's it good movie

    Your probably talking about troll . A girl with a ball goes to the basement laundry room and the troll hides behind the washer.he takes over the little girl with a ring and she turns tenants of the apartment building into trolls and her brother goes into the trolls kingdom to get his sister back with the help of a secret witch in the building.good movie

    I know this is a really late reply but if you ever found out what this movie is please let me know. I think I know what you're talking about--was the dwarf (or whatever he was) able to make himself invisible? Because other than that, your description is exactly like the one in my head, lol.
