According to one TikTok user (@cassandranguyen981), there’s a saying that if you hand a baby an egg, they’ll be gentle with it. So, TikTok users took up the challenge and handed out raw eggs to their little ones for a chance to go viral. Babies with little self-control and fragile raw eggs — what could go wrong?
Cassandra handed her baby an egg to test the theory out and needless to say, her baby passed the test of being gentle:
As her video gained traction, other parents took the challenge with their own babies. While some parents showed their child successfully holding the egg, not all babies were able to succeed.
Desiree Nicole (@qqueendessss) posted a TikTok of her son holding an egg high, only to crack it on the tile below him. He then poked and prodded the raw egg as it spilled out on the floor:
Brianna Edwards (@binnaa97) handed off a raw egg to a standing toddler, only to watch him quickly throw it on the floor in front of him:
However, for the most part, the young ones of TikTok adorably cradled their eggs happily:
Had to try this one with her 🤣♬ original sound – cassandranguyen981
If you think this egg challenge TikTok sounds familiar, it should. The internet was previously obsessed with handing off raw eggs to their dogs and seeing what their pets did with them. The results? Some dogs calmly carried the eggs in their mouths, while others immediately dropped the eggs for them to explode on the floor, forcing owners to scramble and get their pups away from the mess.
