Kids are still figuring out language, so it’s to be expected that they’ll they mangle words on the regular. But sometimes, they’ll come up with a word for something that’s actually better than the word itself. Like when author Tessa Dare‘s friend’s child saw a crow and called it a “Halloween eagle.” Dare shared this gem on her Twitter, and soon other parents began posting their own kids’ inventiveness with language.
Below are 15 animals and objects, renamed by a kid. Aside from being funny, these new names actually make sense when you think about them from the point of view of a kid who’s never seen one before. And a few of them might even be worth using instead of the original name! If you start using them in everyday conversation, we won’t judge.
