Meet He Pingping, the World’s Shortest Man

Posted on April 5, 2007

Born in Huade county, Wulanchabu city in northern China’s Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, He Pingping was only the size of an adult’s palm at birth, according to his father He Yun.

However, his tiny size benefits him enormously. In January, he had the proud experience of attending a show in Tokyo, Japan, with the invitation of a local television station.

Interestingly, his home of Inner Mongolia is also the home to the world’s tallest man, 2,36-meter Bao Xishun, according to the Guinness World Records.

Firstly I would like to say that there are some very oversensitive people on this site..... get over it, yes it is amazing - he is very small - but this is due to a medically diagnosed disability he is not just an average joe who was born small. Also (having seen the TV show on which he appeared) he didnt seem like a very nice person at all, expecting huge amounts of money to appear on TV (fair enough I suppose) and then caring about nothing apart from where his next ciggarette or joint (yes, accarding to several reliable pages he smokes weed) is coming from. So if you could "buy" him (He makes his living off being "cute" why would he find this offensive, the more people who go "awwww I wish I could have one" the more money he makes) why would you want to. Also there are plenty of people in the world who live in poverty if you can afford to smoke that much weed and tobbacco he can be that poor off.

Pingping is one of a kind. When I saw him and his family on telly I really hoped that he was the worlds shortest man and when I found out he was I was overjoyed. Pingpings family really needed that money for a new house, to live in a new country and basically a new life. I have to admit I was very surprised when I found out Pingping smoked I thought it seemed very out of character considering he didn't have very long to live in the first place. Good luck to Pingping.

Yes Joy Pingpings life life will be shortened because he is a primordial dwarf and he will sadly only live to somewhere around thirty years old because of his condition.
