14 students from Japan’s Fuji Municipal Harada elementary school worked together to set a new record for the most skips by a team over a single jump rope in 60 seconds, getting their feet over the spinning rope 225 times without a miss – or about one jump every 1/4 second.

Hospital Head Doctor

Hospital Head Doctor

“Here’s what we’re gonna do… so that the operation isn’t gross.” A group of kids literally play doctor in Dean Fleischer-Camp and Jenny Slate’s charming short film, which wonderfully presents the sorts of things kids would actually say. We wonder how much of it was improvised.

Ooh La La!

Ooh La La!

A little kid riding his bike on the sidewalk in Sweden gets distracted by a traveling billboard for an adult’s only club, and hilarity ensues. Sure, it probably was a setup, but we laughed at the kid in Bad Grandpa too.

Vespa Rocking Horse

Vespa Rocking Horse

The only thing wrong with Urban Avenue’s Italian scooter-inspired rocker is that it’s designed for little kids, and us adults can’t fit on one. Someone needs to start building larger ones at adult scale, or maybe we need to head into the workshop this weekend.

Rayna Meets a Robot

Rayna Meets a Robot

YouTuber marxj1 shared this cute video of a little girl mistaking a broken water heater for a robot. We’re not sure what’s more fascinating: that her belief makes us believe as well, or that she’s familiar with the concept of a robot.

Kids in the News

Kids in the News

While in the middle of a very serious interview on BBC World News, a commentator’s kids busted into into the room, turning a normally cold and dull newscast into something much more entertaining. The part where his wife tries to retrieve them is priceless. Mirror here.

Don’t Say that Word!

Don’t Say that Word!

(PG-13: Language) It’s an experience many of us share – fighting with our siblings in the back seat of Mom’s minivan. Only this time, the younger kid has learned to swear like a truck driver, and her bigger brother is the best parent in the car.

GE Fallonventions

GE Fallonventions

A group of youngsters dropped by the The Tonight Show to demonstrate their inventions, each of which combine the sort of free thinking and whimsy that only kids could come up with. Jimmy Fallon’s products, on the other hand are a bit less practical.

Kids Try Thanksgiving Sides

Kids Try Thanksgiving Sides

“It’s bad and good at the same time.” While we’re good with yams and cranberries, some of the turkey day side dishes of the past seem a little bizarre, like oyster shooters and pickled walnuts. Bon Appétit asked kids to try some sides from the past 100 years.

Kid vs. Cranberries

Kid vs. Cranberries

Unless they’re soaked in huge amounts of sugar, cranberries can be ridiculously sour. And even then, they’re still pretty tart. Despite the look on this toddler’s face, he keeps going back for more. It’s like our love/hate relationship with hot wings.

How to Draw a U.F.O.

How to Draw a U.F.O.

The latest short clip from Action Movie Kid sees 4-year-old James Hashimoto living out a popular fantasy, after doodling a chalk spaceship on the ground. Naturally, he had the help of his dad, VFX artist Daniel Hashimoto.

Violin Wars

Violin Wars

The students of Quebec’s École de l’Harmonie St Édouard and École secondaire de La Seigneurie turned in this performance back when The Force Awakens opened. If their musical abilities weren’t enough, their lightsaber bows pushed them over the top.

Low Budget VR

Low Budget VR

This dad in Hong Kong gave his kid a thrill ride his rudimentary virtual reality mountain bike simulator. All it took was a big screen TV, a toddler’s push bike, and some upper body strength. Seriously, parents, if you’re looking for a way to squeeze a workout in, this could be it.

Dad and Baby Beatboxing

Dad and Baby Beatboxing

Forgive the “shot with a potato” quality video, but this clip is all about the audio anyhow. Listen as Zac and his daughter show off their talents with a brief beatbox improv. We’re sure that someday she’ll show her dad who’s boss. (Thanks Carlos-David!)

Teens React to Windows 95

Teens React to Windows 95

The Fine Brothers‘ React series puts a group of teenagers in front of thoroughly outdated mid-90s computers to see if they can figure their way around these recent technological dinosaurs. Can you imagine how many floppies Fallout 4 would have needed to install?

“He’s really hairy. We believe he’s a werewolf.” Field Day asked kids what they thought about their parents, not knowing that their parents were actually in the room and disguised by makeup artist Promise Phan.
