I think the question depends on whether work and fun are proportional to 
volume or surface area. 1/48 compared to 1/72:

Linear scale: 1.5 : 1
Surface area: 2.25 : 1
Volume: 3.375 :1

If you think work is proportional to volume and fun is proportional to 
surface area, then to maximise the fun-to-work ratio you should build as 
small as you can handle.
