After Little People, Big World (LPBW) star Zach Roloff expressed his desire to have a “dwarf tribe,” fans have a lot to say. Many think this is cringey or strange. Keep reading to get all of the details and see what fans are saying.

Zach Roloff talks about having a ‘dwarf tribe.’

Zach and his parents all have dwarfism. His father, Matt Roloff, has diastrophic dysplasia. Zach and his mother, Amy Roloff have achondroplasia.

This is also the form of dwarfism that Zach’s children have.

The LPBW star has said in the past that he wants to have a “dwarf tribe.”

So far, all three of Zach and Tori’s kids have dwarfism.

LPBW fans find this cringey, & here’s why.

On RedditLittle People, Big World fans and critics are talking about this and pointing out how “cringey” Zach’s desire is.

One LPBW fan says, “I know Zach wants a ‘dwarf tribe’ (which is frankly bizarre to me), but Tori clearly wanted to experience being the mother to an average-sized child.”

They add, “Why would you wish numerous, painful medical issues on your children?”

As shown on LPBW, Jackson, 5, has already had surgery to correct his bowing legs. Fans fear that two-year-old Lilah will eventually need surgery, too. Plus, there may be many more health issues and physical difficulties as the kids grow up.

Someone else thinks they might understand Zach’s logic, pointing out, “I believe he wanted a dwarf tribe because he remembers what it felt like to be the little person next to his brother, Jeremy and he didn’t want Jackson and Lila to feel that.”

While fans are discussing Zach’s desire for a “dwarf tribe,” they’re also talking about Tori’s disappointment. Fans have noticed that she seems to be excited and hopeful about having an average-sized baby.

However, as fans may know, Tori’s third baby has been diagnosed with achondroplasia like Jackson, Lilah, and Zach.

Some fans believe that Tori wants an average-sized baby so their children don’t all have to deal with medical issues.

  1. They need to stop having any more children. Obviously Tori isn’t going to have an average sized child. So sad the medical problems that face their children. You can see Tori is disappointed each pregnancy

    1. The surgery for Jackson’s legs does not look like it corrected his bow legs and pigeoned toes. Are they trying to find a specialist in leg reconstruction?

  2. No one wants their children to have any sort of medical problems. But I believe that Zach and Tori should have as many children as they desire. Medical technology is improving all of the time.
    I can understand that Zach probably had issues growing up with a full size twin brother and that he wouldn’t want that for his children. Zach’s children will probably have to go through surgeries and that’s unfortunate but as Zach is teaching Jackson the possibilities of what he can achieve in life aren’t limited by his size.
