I clicked 30mm but to me the range 25-30mm is one thing. Due to base height and other factors like stance of the miniature you would get different heights in that range for one scale range.
The scale ranges I have found in the market are more like 15mm and 25-30mm for tabletop gaming and then 1:72, 1:48 for the plastic figures (Airfix, Revell etc.) For children toys I would also consider Lego and Playmobil scale.
The poll should probably have included a 15mm-18mm range entry, given this is very popular for cast wargame minis. It's the scale I usually resize my paper minis and models to now. As lightning said, the 25mm-30mm range is virtually the same thing these days, so doesn't really need multiple entries.
In many respects, I'm happy if designers go for 30mm scale minis and models, because they'll almost always scale down to my preferred 15mm without problems.
You might also wish to consider the more popular railway model scales as well (around 20mm scale, but having much more naturalistic human proportions in the figures than many of the gaming minis), since card and paper models have long been part of that hobby, and continue to be so in the world of downloadable PDFs.

I clicked 30mm because the people I game with have a lot of the D&D plastic ones. I also have also scaled Permes and Okumarts minis down to 15mm when I was preparing for certain sessions, like three ships meeting at sea or a big battle that spanned the Piazza San Marco. The last figures I made (and I will soon share) turned out to be more like 32-34mm and I am just going to use them but try to reduce the template a little for the next batch.
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.
Vermin King: Not the style you are looking for, but try a search for 'paper theatre' or 'paper theater', and you will find a few pages of epinal figures. Not many, but I know there are a few

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)
