Adorable Kid Finds Clever Workaround To Dad’s Toy Selection Caveat.

When a kid wants a specific toy in the toy store, they might surprise you with their persuasiveness.

A quick trip to the toy store turned into a life lesson for an unprepared dad. Any parent will tell you that taking a kid into a toy store is not always fun. When this father took his three-year-old son to a toy store, he gave the boy very explicit rules. The young boy could get any toy if it fits in his hand.

The boy found his selected toy and held it up for dad’s approval.

Dad seems ready for this discussion and confident in his abilities as a dad. He asked his son, “How big is your hand?” Then he explained that although he could carry the big box, it wouldn’t fit in his hand. The boy wrestled with the box, trying different ways to balance it in one hand.

When he couldn’t get the balance just right, the young man turned to put it back on the shelf.

As he struggled to put the item back, the kid had a lightbulb moment. You can almost visualize the tiny lightbulb shining above his head as he adjusts his hands.
