Toddler Becomes Britain’s Youngest Mensa Member At 3

Most parents think their kids are smart, but one toddler in England is so brilliant, he’s become the youngest Mensa member in the U.K. Teddy Hobbs is only three, but he can already read fluently and count to 100 … not just in English, but he taught himself how to do it in seven different languages, including French, Spanish, German and Mandarin.

According to Teddy’s parents, he’s really not interested in games and TV, instead he enjoys a good word search. His mom, Beth, says they never even planned to apply for membership to the high-IQ society, which requires a minimum score of 132 on the Stanford Binet IQ test. They just wanted to have Teddy assessed to help him when he starts school in September, and Beth explains, "We did an IQ test, where we basically told him that he was going to sit and do some puzzles with a lady for an hour, and he thought it was the most wonderful thing.”

Not only did he have fun doing it, the brilliant boy aced the test, scoring a 139 out of 160. That’s when Mensa’s child advisor told Teddy’s parents that he was eligible, so they decided joining might be the best thing for the tot as he’s already outgrowing his school lessons. Now he’s become the youngest Mensa member in the U.K. and his parents joke that they’re not quite sure how their kiddo ended up being so gifted.
