An inhabitable planet that is far smaller than astronomically possible, often less than a few functional miles in diameter. As a general rule, a Baby Planet is small enough that you can see its curvature even on the surface. In RealLife, a body this small would be called an asteroid or be a natural satellite orbiting a planet, and would usually be incapable of supporting an atmosphere (or rather, an atmosphere with enough pressure and warmth to support life), and would probably not even be spherical, but in fiction, these often sport [[AllPlanetsAreEarthLike an entire ecosystem]] awkwardly compressed into the minute available space.

** And don't forget the [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Lumas]], who transform into these miniature planets and galaxies when they mature, making them ''literally'' baby planets.

* "Asteroid B-612" from Antoine de Saint-Exupery's ''Literature/TheLittlePrince'' may be the TropeCodifier, if not the {{Trope Maker|s}}. It's house-sized, which makes it ''bigger'' than most neighboring planets. And he [[WunzaPlot keeps encountering new stuff on it]] every day, including baobab trees.

* Mongo's moons in ''Film/FlashGordon''. The ones we see aren't round, Arboria is bowl-shaped with everything on "top" of it and the Hawk Men live in a flying fortress.

Federation. It's small enough Morty can throw a frisbee across the surface and catch it from the other side with some practice, and its circumference is about the size of a normal neighborhood.

** The band's later album "Yessongs" shows the glider guiding a fragment of the baby planet through space, where it lands in the ocean of a new, full-size world.
