Whoa, Momma!

Best family car? Only if you're 3 inches high!

Pollypocketmall Forbes magazine, published by the folks who bring you the annual list of the gajillion richest people on the planet, now wants to help us parents figure out which is the best car to buy.

Thankfully, you won't have a long list to look through because they only give you the 10 Best Cars for Families.

Of course, there are the usual suspects -- the Toyota Sienna minivan and the large Ford Taurus sedan -- as you might expect.

But then they throw you a curve: a 2008 Mini Cooper Convertible. All I could think was: A Mini Cooper? Convertible? Really?

Sure, families come in all sizes -- but that one seems like it's made for Polly Pocket's family, not mine.
