‘Dwarf Kingdom’ Draw Support In The East, Criticism In The West

March 27, 2010

China (ChattahBox) – A theme park that employs only little people is drawing mixed reactions from around the world, with many in China showing massive support, while many in the West express outrage.

It isn’t unusual for China to come up with controversial ideas.

One of their newest is a land in the Yunnan province called The Little People’s Kingdom, a theme park of tiny houses that looks like a full village where a group of nearly a hundred people with Dwarfism now live.

For paying customers who are willing to give 80 yuan ($11.72), they will perform skits, go about their day, and even do parody versions of dances and plays.

Little people suffer a great deal of discrimination in China, and some activists in the country have joined in on European and America outrage.

But others in the country, including those working at the park, deny they are being exploited. According to these sources, the Kingdom offers a chance to work and find understanding and support in a country that often makes live difficult for people with Dwarfism.
