1. This compact car:
The world’s smallest (and legally roadworthy!) car is only 41 inches high. What it lacks in oomph it makes up for in ability to find parking.
3. World’s smallest movie:
For the short “A Boy And His Atom”, IBM placed atoms with a scanning tunneling microscope to make its actors, props, and scenes. The lead character is a single nanometer in size (one 25 millionth the size of an inch), and Guinness World Records has certified it as the world’s smallest stop-motion film.
4. This fun-sized frog:
Discovered in eastern Papua New Guinea and averaging 7.7 millimeters long, Paedophryne amauensis is the world’s smallest frog. It is physically impossible for it to be not cute.
6. This little lizard:
The ‘Brookesia micra’ chameleon, with a 16-millimeter body, is darn impossible to find in a game of hide and seek.
8. This awesome aircraft:
The SMART-1, measuring 12 feet long with a 17-foot wingspan, is the world’s smallest manned jet aircraft. Buzz Lightyear would approve.
11. This dainty species of deer:
The Pudu, the world’s smallest deer, is currently in danger of extinction, and without it, the world would suffer a serious loss of cuteness.
13. This pint-sized place of worship:
If you blink while visiting Nielsville, Minnesota, you just might miss the smallest functional church in the world.
14. The world’s smallest park (or is it?!):
Just two feet in diameter, Mill Ends Park in Portland, Oregon holds the world record. HOWEVER. This patch of land might be too small to be considered a park, as Prince’s Park in England has emerged as a rival determined to usurp this prestigious, prestigious title.
15. The smallest people:
Both under two feet tall, Chandra Bahadur Dangi and Jyoti Amge have earned the title of being the smallest living man and woman in the world.
17. This nano-sized newspaper:
A special edition of Terra Nostra, a newspaper printed in Ponta Delgada, holds this world record. (If there were a crossword puzzle, it’d probably just have room for a single letter.)
