Sugar cravings are real and can strike at any time. Don't you often feel an uncontrollable urge to bite into a gooey cake or delicious brownie? These random thoughts cross the minds of children and adults, alike. Parents often try to regulate their children's sugar consumption by hiding away chocolates, cookies and other goodies in inaccessible areas. However, one enterprising kid found her way out of her parents' imposed restrictions. In a video that has gone viral on Twitter, a little girl climbed all the way up a fridge to grab a cookie hidden by her parents. Take a look:
The video was originally shared on TikTok and soon found its way to various other social media platforms. On Twitter, the clip went viral, garnering over 775k views and counting. It was liked and retweeted several thousand times by users, who found the antics of the little girl incredible and astonishing to say the least.
In the 22-second video, we see how the cute kid expertly navigates her way to the top of the fridge. She manages to stick one leg in the refrigerator's ice tray and another on its handle, thus reaching the cupboard on top of it to retrieve a cookie packed in a plastic bag. She closes the cabinet door properly to sweep away any signs of her naughty activities, and then slides down to pose for the camera with a cheerful grin and a happy dance.
Many Twitter users found the girl's video cute, admiring the lengths to which she went for her favourite food. However, several concerned users also pointed out how the act could actually end up becoming dangerous and hurting her.

Exactly why I used to yell at my boss for leaving a loaded gun on top of a cabinet. He laughed and said there was no way his kids could get to it.

Look how responsible she is.
She made sure the cabinet doors were shut properly before sliding down to the floor.— Bren (@bren1008) February 24, 2021
Put this child in a gymnastics class— Reader (@megavolt_blue) February 24, 2021
Not cute to me. She would go sit in the corner after that little stunt. ????— Christina® (@ChrisNicole20) February 24, 2021
My only thought is that as soon as that kid grows a bit more she is going to try this and the fridge door will go swinging open tossing her across the kitchen.
Be careful girl!— PCR RitesGood (@pcrritesgood) February 24, 2021
That girl is a born rock-climber. She uses a heel-hook on that water dispenser catch-tray. A natural. Get her to the rock-climbing gym immediately. I climbed for over 20 yrs.— I Love My Dogs!! (@ILoveMyDogs2021) February 24, 2021
Yes she must be pretty light. The doors didn't even open. But I have to agree, not a practice I would encourage.— Adena (@amarietown) February 24, 2021
We would surely give the girl full marks for her determination to get what she wanted! However, these activities are not advisable for young children without parental supervision. What did you think of the viral video? Tell us in the comments below!
