  • World's Smallest Kids: Girl Measured 11 Inches at Birth

    At just 33 inches tall and 17 pounds, Kenadie Jourdin-Bromley is roughly the size of a one and a half-year-old toddler, but is 7 years old. She has an extremely rare form of dwarfism classified as primordial dwarfism -- which means unlike most little people, Kenadie's head and limbs are also proportionally small, giving her a doll-like appearance.
