Toddler Retches at the Sight of Googly-Eyed Fish

A toddler in Kitchener, Ontario, made it clear to his mother that he’s not interested in certain aquatic pets when the sight of a googly-eyed goldfish made him retch.

Eighteen-month-old Cooper was being brought around Big Al’s pet store in Kitchener by his mother, Emily Kains.

When Kains asked for his opinion on the fish with bulging eyes, the unmistakable sound of someone almost vomiting in their mouth can be heard, with the camera moving from the fish to an unimpressed Cooper.

While it definitely didn’t help Cooper’s day, Kains shared the video to TikTok, in the hope that it would at least help in “brightening” up the day of those watching. Credit: Emily Kains via Storyful
