Plenty of artists have been discovered on YouTube (ahem, Justin Bieber), launching wildly successful careers. Despite her young age, 2-year-old Makena knows it’s finally her time to shine. The tot sings her little heart out to Adele’s “Someone Like You”–and we think it’s the best cover yet!
True love (or a need to have a clean mate) is evident in this week’s webtastic pick. Well, at least from one end. The snowball on the right looks sleepy, and has good reason to be—the life of an adorable, fluffy critter can be a hard one!
Add a pint-sized puppy and an adorable wide-eyed tot, and you get this too-cute-to-be-real high-quality home video. And If this doesn’t make you want to get an English Bulldog pup, then I don’t know what will. Watch the duo as they go about their day…being cute.
There’s nothing worse than a crying baby. Wait–there’s nothing worse than a crying baby on a long car ride. You’re in a confined space with no Spongebob Squarepants or Yo Gabba Gabba! episodes in sight (assuming you don’t own a fancy-schmancy car that has a built-in television screen), so life seems to be pretty much over by that point.
What is a frustrated parent to do? Take a cue from this mom, who cleverly plays Florence + The Machine’s hit song “Dog Days are Over” to soothe her son, Embry. And he just won’t stop wiggling and dancing in his seat. Cute!
Will you be popping in a dance tune anytime soon to calm your little one? Do you have a funny/adorable way to cure your kid’s crying?
Don’t you wish your first on-the-lips kiss was captured on camera? This was the case for Elliott and Bowie on May 1, 2011. The cute couple kiss on the lips for the first time, and congratulate each other with an energetic high five. Hit play and catch a glimpse of a sweet, innocent moment!
It’s likely your child doesn’t prefer Iron Maiden and SlipKnot over the Wiggles and Justin Bieber. But wouldn’t it be kind of adorable if she did? Adorable because it’s something totally out of her element, and, honestly, it would probably bring you back to your teenage, angst-ridden days. And who doesn’t love to reminisce? Check out this week’s ‘Webtastic’ pick—a “Hardcore” song performed by Juliet, a loveable eight-year-old girl with a whole lot to say. Enjoy!
Earlier this week, I came across StoryCorps, a non-profit organization dedicated in providing “Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share, and preserve the stories of our lives.” Its mission definitely intrigued me, so I decided to look through their animated interview archive on YouTube, and ended up finding a treasure—a beautiful, poignant story entitled, “Q&A.” Joshua Littman, a 12-year-old honors student with Asberger’s syndrome—a form of Autism—interviews his mother Sarah on animals, love, and life.
If you enjoyed “Q&A,” be sure to check out StoryCorps’ YouTube channel for more interviews and their site for more information.
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!
