Ha! I tried this on my daughters, when they were about 6. We were at our family cottage where we do indeed have a bread box.

Thing One: "Is it bigger than the bread box?"
Me: "No"
Thing Two: "Is it smaller than the bread box?"
Me: "No"
Thing One and Thing Two in Greek Chorus: "It's the bread box!"

They get their smarts from their mother, obviously...
