Knee high to a grasshopper

This idiom first made an appearance in 1814. If it were literal it would mean that a person is roughly less than an inch tall… that’s pretty short! Read the full story of this idiom's history here.

Not only does this phrase indicate someone is short but they have also put it to use to mean someone is very young.
