We all know that most kids are glad to speak their minds at any given time—talk about fearless! And Riley does just that. This admirable kiddie does just that by making a toy store aisle her very own platform to speak against the unfair marketing techniques companies are pulling on girls and boys. In her own words: “The companies try to trick the girls into buying the pink stuff instead of stuff boys want to buy.” Preach, Riley!
Take a break from what you’re doing right now and watch our dramatic-meets-adorable choice for this week’s Webtastic Wednesday. From now on, we’ll be combing through YouTube and showing you the absolute best. Really. We also understand you’re a busy bee, therefore we’ll be posting one video a post.
Phew! Since that’s cleared up, let’s finally move on to this week’s ‘webtastic’ installment:
Don’t you sometimes wish you were in a “Law & Order” episode? Don’t lie. We all have. Throw in a cute baby, an eager daddy, and an interrogation session into the mix, and you’ve just described the following video:
It’s Wednesday. We know you’re all eager to jump right into your softer-than-a-cloud sweatpants and spend a cozy weekend in with the family. But let’s try to live in the moment…for (at least) 10 minutes.
Custom Movie Trailer
How does one go about proposing to a movie buff? By making his own movie trailer, of course. Watch it unfold here.
Paws down, this is the cutest kitty on YouTube. Warning: The 17-second video will have you visiting your local pet store to pick up a cutie of your own.
Sign a (Bieber) Song
Yep, you read right—that’s “sign” not “sing.” Last week, my best friend came up to me, excited (I’m talking jumping up and down) to show me something she had learned that same day. This is what she showed me. Learning how to sign 10 songs has made its way onto my bucket list.
What did you think of WW? What have you seen on the web lately?
This week’s Webtastic Wednesday includes a puppy with a lot of perseverance and children who get duped by their own parents—umm, we’ll let you watch for yourself:
We take many things for granted—including our ability to get right back up after a fall. This French Bulldog tries its hardest to do the same. But does the wobblin’ pup succeed? Take a look here.
What’s better than a tiny cutie singing the Beatles’ classic “Hey Jude”? I’m thinking not too much. The kid superstar dons diapers and plays a guitar (that looks to be taller than he is) on his sofa-made stage. Paul McCartney, eat your heart out. We dare you not to crack a smile.
Baby Loves Paper
Oh, if only ripping paper was our idea of fun. But watching this baby in pink having a giggle fit may just be a suitable substitute.
Jimmy Kimmel dared parents to lie to their kids…
And a handful of them did just that. On his show, Jimmy Kimmel gave parents the task to give their children one (bad) present before Christmas. Many chose to wrap rotten or half-eaten food. The video drew criticism, calling Kimmel cruel and unfair, while others said it was all in good fun. What do you think of it?

What was your favorite WW video? Did you find one you’d like to share?
In what’s probably the most brilliant marketing idea I’ve seen (take that, you Reese’s Pieces-loving Extra-Terrestrial!), o.b. Ultra tampons created an interactive “sorry” video—made just for you.
Here’s the backstory: In the fall of 2010, the applicator-free product was disappearing from store shelves, leaving loyal users in a panic. The tampons started showing up again in the spring, but the Ultras were still nowhere to be seen. But—get ready, ladies—the company announced their return in 2012. And they’re really, really sorry for the absence. Really.
Go ahead and type in your name here. We won’t judge if you’re envisioning your hubby on that piano.
