We really don't have any solid ideas yet. I was thinking of basic
stuff that is photo real and in scale to the blender setting, if you
turn on metric but standard would work just as well. That way a car is
car sized and a rat is rat sized. Other than that, I was thinking of
basic stuff that could be used to make any little movie.  I few people
some buildings some sets, a few plants and trees some furniture and
then textures and rigs and other stuff like that. A basic set that
could let a newbie make something cool in a few minutes.

I am very open to hearing others ideas on this matter.
