Mum mortified over son’s obsession with favourite new ‘toy’

We all know young children can quickly become obsessed with a new toy and want to take it everywhere.

But what if that new toy is not really a toy but something that is proving a little embarrassing?

The mum, who posts to TikTok under the username OurExpatLife, posted the video of her sweet blond-haired toddler out and about with his favourite new toy. They can be seen in the street, strapped into his car seat, walking hand in hand with mum and in the supermarket.

Across the screen she wrote, “What’s the weirdest ‘toy’ your toddler has become extremely attached to?”

“Tampon applicator. He calls it his key. It’s currently going everywhere with us. I promise it was brand new and not used!”

She uploaded the video with the comment, “He found the box — I never thought he would actually get it open AND become attached.”

The nine-second video has so far racked up more than 276,000 views and 10,000 likes. And it seems from the comments he was not alone.

My little girl has one and calls it her telescope,” wrote one.

“It was my grandson’s favourite toy too for a while. People would ask what he’d got there and he’d show them (not talking) and they never recognised it!” said another.

“I used my mum’s sanitary pads as a mask as a kid. I wanted to be a nurse,” wrote another.

But at least one person was not on board, writing, “Hell no. I would take that away so fast.”

It is not the first time a child’s strange choice of toy has gone viral.

Kourtni Epstein uploaded a video of her toddler daughter with her favourite doll, which is in fact a creepy Halloween decoration.

“When your sweet two-year-old buys a dead doll and does everything with it,” she wrote across the screen of the video, which showed the toddler tucking the creepy doll into a cot with a kiss, driving it around in a toy car, pushing it on a swing, feeding it and even sleeping with it.

The video soon went viral and has racked up more than 3.3 million views. A follow-up video has amassed a staggering 16.5 million views.

Her mum embraced the newfound fame and her TikTok bio now proudly states, “Mum life with a side of creepy toddler.”

She has since shared numerous videos that chronicle her daughter’s obsession with her collection of creepy dolls.
