Cute little Elise Tan Roberts is a child genius.

At just at 2 years and 4 months, British smarty Elise Tan Roberts has become the youngest member to join IQ mega club Mensa, it was reported.

Toddler genius Elise Tan Robers can recite the phonetic alphabet and count to ten in Spanish, the terrible 2 year-old has an amazing IQ of 156.

For the cute angle, Little Elise Tan Roberts from Edmonton in north London, can already spell her name aloud, read the words mummy and daddy, name all three types of triangle and reciting the alphabet.

Mensa chief executive John Stevenage said of Elise Tan Roberts membership: "Mensa are always delighted to welcome a new member.

"Elise's parents correctly identified that she is an exceptional child. They now realise they have an interesting challenge on their hands as she grows up. We wish them well and look forward to seeing Elise develop in the coming years."

Young mother, 28-year-old Louise Tan Roberts said her daughters genius came naturally.

"I don't set out to teach her loads of stuff, she just enjoys learning and picks things up. She's always on the go, she never stops," a proud mom said of her daughter Elise.

Elise Tan Roberts father, Edward Tan Roberts who is aged 34, working in the car industry, said he wanted Elise to learn at a fast pace.

“We don't want to make her have to dumb down and stop learning just to fit in. But she's still my baby. I just want her to be happy and enjoy herself.”

Previously Georgia Brown had been the youngest girl joining in 2007 at the age of 1041 days. As Elise was aged 845 days when joining she became British Mensa's youngest ever member.

With her high IQ Elise Tan Roberts is in the top 0.2 per cent for her age, according to Professor Joan Freeman, the child psychologist who used the Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scale to test Elise.

Honestly, I don't believe these feats are extraordinary. Yes, I admit, she is a smart child, but I do not think it is worthy of an news feature on Yahoo! I know plenty of children that are capable of speaking two languages at her same age, and yet they are not being praised in the way she is being. Recognizing certain triangles and being able to sound out "mummy" and "daddy" can merely be products of repetition and not genius thought processes. Do not misinterpret my thoughts as denying her ability, I am hardly doing so, but I am providing information that shows how she is not as unique as the entire world is making her seem.
Thank you for taking the time.

My son is 2 years and 3 months - I always thought he learned things very quickly, but was not sure whether that was normal for a toddler his age. After reading this article I think he is similar to Elise. He counts 1-30 in English, 1-10 in Vietnamese, can count backwards from 10-1, can spell 'baby', 'mom', 'dad', 'god', 'matt', 'wait', 'zoo', and of course recite his alphabets.
