Other than Cinderella, Psyche and Eros, and Vasilisa the Beautiful does anyone know of other tales where the heroine(or hero) must separate a mass of mixed up things of similar shape and size into separate categories? This is considered an impossible task and the protagonist is usually helped by a small animal of some kind to complete it. I've scoured the internet to no avail
