Sup Travellers?! Have you ever met the world's smallest girl? Yeah, me neither. Well this is the closest you may get to her so pay attention. There is a girl by the name of Charlotte Garside who is five years old but despite her age she has the size and weight barely of that of a newborn baby. She is 27 inches tall. Yes, 27 inches and 9 pounds.. Yes 9 pounds.



"We've been told she looks like a porcelain doll, a baby in a pram and people still call her baby Charlotte, which riles me something chronic, because she's not a baby, she's five years old," Emma Garside told Barcroft TV.

Charlotte, who lives in the English town of Withernsea, was born with a rare form of Primordial Dwarfism. She weighs nine pounds, the same as a large newborn baby. At birth, she registered just two pounds and was extremely fragile.

"I have said she looked like a skinned rabbit," her mother said. "She had a little pink hat on and was wrapped in bubble wrap up till her neck."

Currently, the title of world's smallest girl is unofficial since the Guiness book of world records doesn't recognize the category. That title is currently unclaimed, according to a Guinness spokeswoman, since the last record holder, Jhoti Amge of India, is now an adult.

Standing 24.7 inches, Amge is shorter than Charlotte. The 5-year-old also towers over the world's shortest man, Chandra Bahadur Dangi of Nepal, who measures 21.5 inches tall.

It surprised a lot of people that the British girl managed to live this long, so maybe she has some more surprises for the world in the future. Let's just hope that everything stays well with her. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
