Over the holidays, two toddlers were filmed giving each other hugs while their parents were chatting, and the adorable moment has brought smiles to all our faces.


Ballito, South Africa – Alon Abadi was walking along the beachfront in Ballito when he saw the most adorable show of love. A couple has stopped to chat with a vendor on the beachside; the woman was selling hats and had her little girl with her.

The couple also had their little girl with them. While the adults were talking, the two toddlers were unable to stop staring at each other, after a few moments, it became apparent they wanted to play.

The father of the little girl bent down and let his toddler reach out to the vendor’s daughter. Without even a hesitation, the little girls embraced in a hug.

As soon as the toddlers embrace, you can hear everyone around them break out into laughter. The moment brought smiles to everyone on the beachfront and every person who has seen the video since.

Children have the most innocent outlook on life and their love sends an important message. We can all do a little more to spread a little love in South Africa, even if it is just smiling at someone.

Take a look at the adorable video below.
