Cute Climbing Toddler Causes YouTube Sensation
A three-year-old girl from Leicestershire, UK, has become a YouTube sensation after her dad posted a video of her scaling a door frame in her home.
“I can do it! I can do it!,” exclaims the agile toddler, Sofya Dickson, as she climbs up a doorframe. The video became an instant YouTube hit, and has so far been viewed by over 400,000 well wishers worldwide.
Her father Peter said he put the video on the internet after Sofya stunned both him and his wife with her skills. He said the global interest sparked by the video, including from US TV networks, has been “bizarre.”
“Almost [a] quarter of a million people have watched the video of my daughter climbing the wall,” he said. “It’s a little bit bizarre and I’m getting phone calls from America and it’s all very strange to be honest.”
The immense popularity of the video has inspired Mr. Davidson to set up a charity to pass on any proceeds to Save the Children. He wrote under the video, “Crazy as it seems it looks like this might make some cash. Sadly for my Hot Tub fund it makes sense to pass that cash onto children who can’t afford their own door frame”.
Sofya says it is a hard climb but she enjoys it and is not scared. Perhaps it’s time to take this fearless toddler to the local climbing center!
