36 Toddler Hide-And-Seek Masters! (Not Really)

Posted by , under SNAPSHOTS


The ability for kids to simply vanish into thin air is really the stuff of myth and legend. It’s like they’re tiny walking/toddling, talking/babbling mythological creatures! Living, breathing mirages! Elusive, giggling little optical illusions!

Scroll through these photos and see if you can spot these maniacally genius hiders as they fold space and bend minds to evade detection!

    Probably one of my all time faves. Kids are awesome, and so are you, dads!

    What are you getting at man! These are just pictures of rooms with no one in them. This is yellow journalism at its most depraved.

  3. Sandy King says:

    Great photos. My soon-to-be three year old does the exact same thing with his lego bin. He also does the robe on the back of the door and the curtains. But looking through your list he’s gonna have to step up his game!

    And some of the pictures (namely “The Mystery Bin” make it look like your magic munchkins have been squashed!
