The “Linda, Listen” of South Africa is so cute as she tries really hard to convince her mom that the toy trailer she found isn’t dirty and should go home with them.


Johannesburg, South Africa – Three-year-olds can be quite precocious; they are growing up and fast becoming aware of the meaning of their words and how to convey what they mean.

Recently a little three-year-old has taken South Africa by storm. Mia Zwart has gone viral for becoming the “Listen, Linda” of South Africa.

If you don’t know the “Linda, Listen” viral video you have missed out, it was so cute at the time, and Mia is double the cuteness because she is local. We have taken the liberty to add the original video below so take a look if you haven’t seen it.

Mia was at work with her mom Bianca, and it was filthy and dusty. Bianca confirmed that usually, Mia is very girly and is always careful with her clothing but on this day she was having too much fun to notice the dirt.

Bianca went to get Mia so they could head home, but the little one refused to leave without her toys. The toys in question previously belonged to Mia, but she agreed to donate them to other children at her mom’s work.

“The toys did belong to her once but we gave it people there as they no longer played with it at home” – Bianca Zwart

What transpired was a desperate plea on Mia’s side to get the toys home. Much like the little boy in the video above, Mia felt she wasn’t being heard and attempted to convince her mother to let the toys go home with them.

After a good giggle at Mia’s attempts to persuade mom to let her keep the toys, they agreed to leave them behind.

“I told her that she can play with it if she went there again and that she must remember that we actually gave it to those kids and she was fine with it.”

The whole situation was caught on camera and has made for quite the cute story. Something Mia may someday have to relive at a 21st and definitely something that will bring smiles for years to come.

Take a look at her adorable moment below.
