A couple of days ago I told Jane not to describe something as a SmallLittle thing. One of those words is enough, I told her, but she didn't buy it. I've heard others say SmallLittle too--maybe it's a North Carolina thing. It's always followed by a noun (as opposed to standing alone). I've heard "there was this SmallLittle box on the table," but never "the box on the table was SmallLittle."

Everyone here says big-huge. Never heard small-little. LOL!

BigHuge is new to me.
