In a land far, far away, love flourishes in a kingdom unlike any other. With mushroom-shaped homes, and old dormitories, a community of dwarfs lives in their own little kingdom. All are less than 51 inches tall, and they sing, dance, and perform on a daily basis for visiting tourists.

The Kingdom of the Little People is a theme park near Kunming, China. The part features comic performances by people with dwarfism, and supporters claim it provides employment for people who would otherwise be unable to find work.

However, the park has also been criticized for treating dwarfism as a humorous condition. Dwarfism is a short stature that results from genetic or medical condition. It is generally defined as an adult of 4 feet and 10 inches. There are many different medical conditions that can cause dwarfism.
