Jeff made lots of similar little things. He sold them to numerous people, but he always has them in his house.

So Jeff keeps these objects in his house, and the people come to collect them one day? or he delivers them over?
Do the people purchase his objects through the internet? catalogue? do they meet him and converse with him in the flesh when they buy it?
Are the objects for charity? eg adopt a rubber goose to help the homeless children kind of thing?

Are the objects decoy flamingos? Would I be able to make use of the items? Would the buyers "use up" the items, or could one item serve its purpose for the rest of the existance of the universe? Does "Jeff" use sophisticated computerized equipment to create such items? Would only a homeowner buy such an item? Would the item be something found in every home?

Without these objects, would the objects in the buyers' homes be able to function?
Jeff used the computer to make these objects? An ordinary computer like the one we're using at the moment? Did he use photoshop or some other artistic program? Did he print something out? Are his objects cds? thumbdrives? floppies of long ago?

Sorry if that was confusing but if you buy a downloaded picture or song it is stored on your computer but you can take it away from your house on an ipod for example. Are these things similar?

Jack created lots of similar little things. He sells them to people via Internet. The buyers cannot touch the objects, but can see them.
He made them himself, with the help of a computer; they are all smaller than a mouse. They are decorative, but may also serve a purpose. They cost about 40$. There's a specific number of them. You would need a computer to use this item. Most computer users have such items.

Hint: All those objects are sold together, as one whole

Something for subliminal messaging? A video of a guy being tased? A screensaver? A high-speed pursuit simulator? Since most things that are only on computers and can be transferred via the internet usually have no physical size, does the "little" refer to something other than physical size? Memory size? RAM? ROM? GDI objects? Does it involve thousands of frames? Would someone just want to look at it on their computer or would they want to do something else with it? Email it to friends and coworkers? Print it out and staple it to their car? Is it a parody of a Japanese video game?

Good Puzzle. I think the break was the fact that there was a set number of them.
