The traditional Swedish dance and song Små grodorna has a fascinating history that you can read about here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sm%C3%A5_grodorna

Shouldn't it be 'de små grodorna'

Normally, yes, but this is the title of a song and the den/det/de can disappear in names.

All right, but how are foreign learners supposed to know that?

Therefore, both answers are accepted.

The german word for toad is Kröte, which sounds a bit like groda....what would toad be in swedish?

That would be padda.

Kröte used to be Krode, so that's kind of the missing link between the words in the two languages. But nobody knows for certain - that's just an educated guess. :)

Ok, it seems that "små" is invariable, which is a good news. But I am wondering how to say "the smallest" or "smaller than".

It is not invariable, it is the plural of "liten/litet/lilla".

And to answer the initial question, smaller - smallest is: mindre - minst/minsta (predic./attrib.)

How do I say the small frog?

I think it would be Den lilla grodan. Lilla/liten/litet/små is always tripping me up, but I found this link helpful: http://www.thelocal.se/blogs/theswedishteacher/2010/05/14/liten-litet-lilla-sma/
