Street Performer Enlists Help of Toddler to Play Song on the Piano and It’s So Precious

Hope for humanity: Restored.

Taking toddlers out in public isn't always a walk in the park. After all, they don't exactly have a reputation for having long attention spans and patience. And as parents, we often worry that they're going to be disturbing the people around them... but once in awhile, a total stranger has an interaction with our kid that can completely restore our faith in humanity.

One of those moments recently happened to one adorable toddler, and the footage is going viral on TIkTok. A street performer shared a video of what happened when a little boy wanted to join him at the piano, and it's too cute.


At first, the little boy tried to kick the pianist off his piano bench so he could have a turn, and the pianist very kindly obliged. He helped hold the little guy in place while he banged on the keys, and eventually, together they played "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star." 

They played together for a long time, and at the end, everyone clapped for them — and the little boy even clapped for himself with a huge smile on his face! He wasn't the only one having fun, though; in the caption, the pianist wrote, "never get bored of doing this." 

In the comments, so many people applauded this performer for taking the time to do this.

"This is the most wholesome thing I've seen on the internet today & your kindness is an inspiration. You made that child's day & that's precious," one person wrote.

How sweet that he was willing to take the time to create a special moment with this little boy. That's what it's all about!
