The Sun is over 1.39 million km wide but if it were the size of a washing machine, Pluto would be 4.2km away - and the size of a pinhead :o

Here's a good little project in the UK:

Good example to show how big it all is (or how small we really are 8-[ )

There is a similar, scale model in the Peroia, Illinois area. The Sun being at the science mus. in town and the planets out in the surrounding countryside. It's a fun day of seeing how big things are. :)
