15 times children renamed common items and animals and they’re all HILARIOUS!
It is a well known fact that the imagination of a child is unparalleled.
As a result of this powerful and creative imagination, you will find that children can often come up with interesting words to describe things from day-to-day life. After Tessa Dare tweeted about a time her friend’s daughter called a crow a “Halloween Eagle”, she spoke to Bored Panda and explained:
Children learn language by drawing connections and filling in blanks, so I think it’s natural for them to invent descriptions and comparisons that we adults never see. As a professional writer, I wish I could recapture the inventiveness of language that Mia and other children have!
