Halloween came early for one toddler who received quite the scare.
Jessica Magyar recently bought a $20 Feisty Pet, a stuffed animal that quickly goes from nice to frightening, and she wanted to see each of her four children’s reactions to the new toy.
The toy looks innocent until it is squeezed — and then turns into an evil unicorn with fangs. Magyar whipped out the toy on her 2-year-old son Weston and his reaction was priceless.
In a video of the moment, Weston goes to grab the seemingly cute unicorn until the animal transforms. The toddler is left horrified.
“I did record each of their reactions but Weston was obviously the funniest reaction out of the four,” Magyar said. “He’s not afraid of anything. He loves scary things. He likes to be scary so that was a huge shock for me. I did not expect that at all.”
Magyar said it was hard for her to keep from laughing while consoling her son but he got over it rather quickly.
“I tried to compose myself while I was hugging him,” Magyar said. “He has an expressive face so you can’t help but laugh at that but obviously that’s my baby. I felt bad. He recovered quickly and he wanted to watch the video. He thought it was really funny.”
The mom was shocked when she posted the video on Facebook and it quickly went viral. It has been shared more than a million times as of Monday afternoon.
“I can’t wrap my head around a million shares, let alone how many views it has,” Magyar said.
